On recalibrating her life balance: “Before I had my son, I sensed this pressure to fill my schedule. If I wasn’t working, I felt like I was wasting time. Now I know I have to build in breaks in my year, and there are times when I’m just not available to work because it’s important for me to be home with him. So I shop a lot less. I cook a lot more. I read a lot more. I write a lot more. I communicate a lot more. I make more time for the things that matter to me because suddenly I have more time.”

On doing what feels good: “With eating, my number-one thing is trying to buy food that doesn’t come in packaging. Beyond that, I try not to eat red meat, and I try not to eat pork. But generally speaking, I’m pretty low-key about all that stuff. The balancing [of my approach to keeping in shape] is important to me. My go-to for a lot of my life was to feel bad about myself, and I just don’t want to do that anymore.”

On knowing your value at any age: “Rushing out the door this morning, I grabbed a coat I have had for probably 12 years. It’s one of my favorites, and it made me feel chic and put together when I was undercaffeinated and bleary. It’s just a coat. It’s not a big deal, but I felt really proud that I spotted it in that shop and had earned the money myself to spring for it. I have cared for it all these years, and that younger me made such a good call that older me is still enjoying. The accumulation of 12 years of love and pride in a good decision is something you don’t get right off the bat. It takes time, and it’s a feeling you have to be a little older to enjoy.”
