Q: Tell us who you are, where you’re from, and what you do.
A: My name is Carolyn Zimmer and I'm 27 years old. I'm originally from Vero Beach, FL but live in New York City full-time now. I was a commercial real estate broker for the last 5 years, and recently became an interior design student at The New School (Parsons).
Q: How would your friends describe you?
A: My friends would describe me as someone that is laid back, charismatic and generous.
Q: What’s one thing you’re passionate about?
A: I'm passionate about tennis, having been captain of both my high school and college varsity tennis teams. I still try to play as much as possible, even when i'm in NYC.
Q: What does self-care look like to you?
A: Self-care looks like a combination of many things to me. It's having a balanced daily routine, getting in physical activity, having at least 6 hours of sleep, eating healthy (I personally don't usually eat meat), interacting with friends, and taking time to self reflect/decompress. I like writing in a journal every night. I find that therapeutic and I like the idea of having something to look back on later in life.
Q: How have you integrated Favour into your everyday routine, and when do you use Favour?
A: I have had sleeping problems and anxiety surrounding sleep for my entire life. I've begun chewing Favour every night before bed, while winding down and watching TV to help calm myself/decrease the stress I feel before I go to bed.
Q: What are some of your at-home wellness tips right now?
A: I love doing Yoga right when I wake up. I do it through an app on my phone, super easy and usually only takes 20-30 minutes if you don't have a ton of time. It helps me set my head space and mood for the day in a relaxed, level state before starting the rest of my daily routine.
Q: What’s your current favorite song?
A: Blinding Lights by The Weeknd
Q: How do you do yourself a Favour?
A: I do myself a Favour by having a glass of red wine after a tough day.
