Elise’s WFH and Sleep Routine

In partnership with our friends at Avocado Green Mattress

Life at home for our chief content officer, Elise Loehnen, starts and ends, as it does for you, in bed. In between, she’s meeting on Zoom, recording special episodes of The goop Podcast, hosting virtual In goop Health sessions, and reading books, books, and more books. (She’s in a competition with her brother to see who can finish the most. We’re still trying to decide which one of them is more competitive.) She’s also a mom to two sons (hi, Sam and Max) and a wife (hi, Rob). And she’s trying to stay sane at home by organizing her drawers, finding moments of calm, and redevoting herself to getting a full nine hours of sleep every night. That means staying in bed a little longer. Which, for Elise, meant it was time for a new bed—for resting and retreating and, yes, reading.

We admittedly got jealous watching her unbox the famed Avocado organic mattress, and we’ve collected the rest of the tools in her WFH arsenal. “I’ve been using this time to assess and figure out what serves me, what drains me, where I probably need to upgrade, and where I can declutter,” says Elise. “I always have a notebook nearby. I’m a big list-maker, which has been key. I put everything down, from making dinner to going for a walk.” But the most important thing, she tells us, is to take breaks. In bed when possible.
