Sunday ritual? JR: I have so many rituals. I try to do transcendental meditation, but it doesn’t always happen. I find cooking very meditative and healthy, for your mind. Walking really helpful for mental health too. But I have a lot of beauty rituals too that help, that are tied in. Dry brushing and lots of baths. The more rituals the better.
Cheat meal? JR: French fries and ice cream. But I have all this stuff all the time so it’s not really so bad. Mint chocolate chip is my go to but I also like ginger with chocolate sauce is like my fave.

Best thing about living in New York? JR: The energy.
