Get To Know Our Newest Educators
Have you visited our brick-and-mortar store in New York City? It’s home to an award-winning meditation space, a selection of wellness products, and insightful Educators who can help you choose the best supplements, tools, and more for your needs. This month, we’re excited to have two new Educators joining our team: Jonny and Abigail! To help you get to know the new friendly faces at 1145 Broadway, we asked them a few questions about their approach to wellness, connection to our space, and their favorite finds.
What’s the first thing you do each morning? I like to play music. Usually, I set my alarm to music so I wake up to a specific song that gives me an intention for the day.
What was your very first impression of the store? I thought it was beautiful. The scent, as soon as you walk in, is so inviting, and the meditation room is everything I’ve ever wanted.
How does the scent of the store make you feel? It literally just changes my mood. The second I walk in from the street it’s like I’m in an oasis of positivity and optimism.
What’s your favorite product you’ve discovered at Standard Dose? Why? The OSEA Anti-Aging Body Balm because I love the scent and love how smooth it feels on my skin. It gives my skin a shiny highlight that I really like.
What’s one thing you’ve learned since working at Standard Dose that you think everyone should know? Meditation daily is very important. I was already a meditator before but now that I’m constantly around this energy it reminds me to do it multiple times a day.
What’s your favorite thing to do after work? I like to go to the gym. I’m a very hyperactive person so I have a lot of energy and the gym is a great place for that.
What does self-care mean to you? Any kind of mood-enhancer. There are days when I wake up and I’m either apathetic to the world or just existing but anything that can enhance my mood to make me excited for the day and want to do more is amazing.
What’s the first thing you do each morning? I like to wash my face, brush my teeth, and put on a nice smelling body oil to ground myself for the start of the day.
What was your very first impression of the store? That it was very calming and serene.
How does the scent of the store make you feel? Very calm, like the store itself. It’s very inviting, it gives me a sense of peace, and everyone is always commenting on it.
What’s your favorite product you’ve discovered at Standard Dose? Why? The natureofthings Nourishing. Body Creme. It’s super nourishing for your skin, it smells really great, and the packaging is stunning.
What’s one thing you’ve learned since working at Standard Dose that you think everyone should know? I’ve learned more about the CBD tinctures and gummies that we sell. I had no idea that CBD could be used for so many different things, like to improve gut health and address pain.
What’s your favorite thing to do after work? Go home and play with my cats!
What does self-care mean to you? Taking care of yourself, and making sure that you’re in a good place mentally and emotionally. Also just doing small things for yourself throughout the day whether that be eating a healthy meal, going on a walk, or seeing your friends.
If you’re based in New York City or planning a trip here, we hope you’ll stop by our calming, Mediterranean-inspired store to meet our new Educators, learn about our curation from them, and even try their favorite products for yourself!
