Tarot Cards, Ukuleles, & Your Next Favorite App: Meet Ashley Sumner
What does “wellness” mean to you?
To me, wellness is a space where my mind and body feel balanced, clear, and supported.
What is something you do every day to help maintain a spirit of wellness?
I take long walks, I play music (just bought a ukulele), and pull tarot cards.
How does wellness intersect with your work life?
My role at Quilt revolves around building community and deepening connection to others, which I believe is a form of wellness and self-care so I am lucky that I get to do that every day.
I start my mornings by making a smoothie with Four Sigmatic Protein Blend and pulling a tarot card from one of my favorite decks, The Fountain Tarot. Then, I either go for a run or walk in my On Running shoes. And, I've started using Quilt and it has had such a positive effect on my mental health and starting my day. I get to hear people's voices from all over the country and listen to how they are.
As I'm winding down from my day, I try to stop looking at any screens and read poetry. Lately, I've been reading a lot by Kahlil Gibran. I take nightly baths with Dr. Teal's epsom salts and lavender oil, and use Waleda on my face and body. When I go to sleep, I always wear my eye mask from Lunya.
