Welcome to the Daily Distance, a new daily series from the creators of #WeGotGoals. In these short episodes, we’re bringing you one daily goal you can set for yourself during this chaotic time- one actionable thing you can do to move your body, connect with a friend, prioritize your mental health, get some work done, and practice a little bit of self-care.

 Today’s guest is Lisa Kendrick, a registered dietician/nutritionist on Dr. Valter Longo’s team at Create Cures Foundation. She’s currently backing Create Cures Foundation’s COVID-19 relief efforts in providing free nutrition/wellness consultations during this time to US victims and first responders.

Her tip: use this time at home to reset your circadian rhythm. We discuss why now’s the time to do so, and Li breaks the process down into three tips. We also get delightfully sidetracked discussing how to “eat the rainbow” and eat seasonally, plus how our sleep affects our diet and vice versa.
