The Well 52: René Robers, Sr. Manager of eCommerce, Heineken USA
What is the most important thing you do for your wellness?
Sleep is my healthiest habit – I usually get 8 hours a night (even with a toddler down the hallway!)
Do your best to stick to a consistent evening routine - I'm no sleep researcher, but I believe this helps your internal clock. I am in bed with a book between 9:30 - 10:30 p.m. (Sometimes I scroll social media first; but no TV on for bedtime!) Reading really helps me unwind, so after 30 minutes or so, I'm good & tired; I turn off the lamp and go to sleep.
Invest in nice, comfy pajamas, great bedding & quality pillows – it makes it a ritual as you get ready and feels like a treat to end the day. A ceiling fan with a bedside remote has been a game changer for me! It helps me to get back to sleep easily if I wake up. If I wake up and can't seem to get back to sleep, I will move locations – guest room, living room couch – and read until I'm tired again.
What is one piece of advice you'd give to other women?
If you do the best you can, it will be more than enough.
What is one quote or mantra you live by?
Be who you needed when you were younger.
Brag on yourself- what is something you are REALLY proud of?
In February, I committed to a workout plan for the first time in 10+ years, with the accountability and partnership of a close friend and a trainer.
