Welcome to Wellness Confidential, our quick-fire interview series where we ask hard-hitting (okay, entertaining) wellness questions, lightning round-style.

This week, we’re chatting with Weekend Today anchor Stephanie Ruhle.

My mantra of the moment is

Work hard on yourself. Don’t be hard on yourself. We put ourselves in this super-competitive environment where everything has to be the best, most, fittest—it’s really easy to feel overwhelmed. The whole idea of no pain, no gain, I don’t want that. I want wellness. I’m 40 years old, have a demanding job, and three kids. I don’t want to punish myself. Life is hard enough.

Workout I’m currently obsessed with

I love the Under Armour Record fitness app. Basically, it allows you to do challenges against your colleagues and friends. I don’t have time to go to happy hour with my colleagues—I have to be home with my kids—so this is a fun way I can bond with them instead. I also really love the 7-Minute Workout app. I might not have an hour to change my clothes and go to the gym, but I always have seven minutes, and my kids join in too, which makes it fun.

A song that gets me pumped up

All things Beyonce.

The one wellness trend you’ll never see me try

I’d never do an extreme diet that cuts me off from other people. I can’t do a diet that involves traveling with your own food, eating at certain times, or being away from people. I want to be around other people and my kids, and I want my kids to see me eating.

A woman can never have too much

Love. Love for others, and love for yourself. We’re so hard on ourselves in terms of how we look, act, and parent. We’re constantly trying to fit an ideal that doesn’t exist. If you love yourself and have a positive energy, you’re going to have a positive orbit and everyone is going to want to be around you. Love the place you are and the person you are, and the tide will rise around you.
