If I start to feel run-down or like I’m going to get sick, I know I need sleep – stat. I can sometimes keep a sickness at bay with a good night’s sleep!
- I did play a dentist in Waiting for Guffman. I wrote the speech at the conference. In the original script, when it got to that scene, it was, ‘Thank you very much. Good night.’ Literally. I just thought, ‘He keeps talking about this speech. The keynote address is the big thing in his life and this is too important to say, “Thank you. Good night.” I think we have to see and hear him doing what he does.’ So I got together with my dentist and we worked through a few things.
- For mental and emotional health, quiet time is very important to me. I need a point in every day that I disconnect from all electronics and reconnect to my center. I pray and meditate. I drink a ton of water and believe in a good night’s sleep.
