We had the good fortune of connecting with Stephanie Wall Morrow and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Stephanie, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
I definitely have a lot of habit that tie into organization and planning. I find that if I stay on top of planning, everything else seems to follow that. This allows me to stay less stressed and much more aware of what is happening in the present. One of the things that I always put on my schedule first is wellness time for myself. I find that by having that time on my schedule, whether it is for yoga, meditation, Pilates or some other type of mind/body activity that I feel so much better and energized overall. There are also a lot of helpful apps that help to keep me organized and tied to what’s going on with every member of my family.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My personal business was essentially born out of helping others, which is what I have been doing directly and indirectly my entire career. At the beginning of the Pandemic, I was having a discussion with a loved one about how she could better care for herself in the current world and she was at a loss for words. It reminded me how people need a place and often a support system to facilitate regular self-care. Then The Self-Care Circle was born.
I am excited about moving from virtual classes and events back to in person for a stronger feel of community. There is a new project that I have in the works that focuses specifically on anxiety relief. Anxiety is something that so much of our population deals with on a daily basis, myself included, and there are many tools that can help with it.
I am currently working on balance right now, which has been a challenge from day one of starting my business. Since I still have a full-time job that is very meaningful, I have to ensure to spread out my time and energy to accommodate the variables in my life, especially with a five year old and a two year old. When I do run into the something that feels like a roadblock, I am reminded of how important the outcomes are and how I am able to influence others and help them feel more at home in their lives.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love great food, so definitely making sure to grab some pizza from Antico and hitting Red Pepper Taqueria for some dinner and live music. I can never get enough pretzel croissants from Corner Cafe/Buckhead Bread. If you haven’t had one, it will change your life. Stone Mountain Park is great for some fresh air and unique activities. My son has been in love with riding gondolas since he was two, so that’s a crowd pleaser.
We got engaged at the Georgia Aquarium and I love beluga whales. I could sit at that exhibit and just watch them swim all day long.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would definitely like to recognize and think my husband, Will Morrow, who has been extremely supportive of helping me along my yoga journey from student to teacher. We have two very young children and I began my first foray into teaching when our oldest one was only five months old.
