Serenbe’s farms manager Ashley Rodgers is here to give you her best advice about enjoying your downtime.
Q: What is your favorite way to spend a day off?
A: On days off I really enjoy taking a Bikram yoga class. It helps realign and stretch my body from the previous week of farming and gets me energized for the week ahead.
Q: How do you make more time for yourself?
A: The best way to accomplish this is through organization. It is planning ahead, staying productive and finishing tasks that helps me secure free time.
Q: What advice do you have for someone who wants to have more “me” time?
A: Make it a priority. Schedule it in if you have to. Sometimes it is a necessity to put aside everything else.
Q: Who do you like to spend your free time with?
A: Catching up on sleep is a large part of my free time, and my crew of cats and one dog love to snuggle. I also enjoy getting out of town to Savannah and visiting with my friend Jess.
Q: What makes you laugh?
A: I am a sucker for good one-liners. I love intelligent, witty, sarcastic humor when it’s neatly slipped into conversation.
Q: Who are the people that help you be your best self?
A: My mother continues to provide me with encouragement and support. It is the 24/7 sounding board I have in her that has always helped me be my best self. Also, my fellow farmer friends.
