How are you balancing health and wellness with demanding work schedules? Since COVID I have observed many of my non BIPOC peers working out during the work day. My calendar looks like Tetris and requires a ton of video calls. Shy of me working out at 0-dark-30 or late at night, I can’t see how I could possibly work out during the work day. What works for you? Clearly I’m doing something wrong.
