clean mykind Organics supplements, I didn’t want to take anything on a regular basis. Now that mykind Organics exists, I try to take our B Complex vitamin, B-12 Spray, and Vitamin C Cherry Tangerine spray. I also take our 40+ Multivitamin Gummy as a sweet treat. Some herbal supplements I use as needed include mykind Organics Sleep Well R&R Spray, Ashwagandha, Adrenal Balance, and our delicious Elderberry Gummies. RR: What kinds of exercise do you enjoy most? AS: I love doing yoga, circuit training, Pilates and walking in nature. Bear and I enjoy hiking together and frequent dance parties! Getting movement in the body helps me feel energized and refreshed. RR: Do you have a regular meditation practice? AS: I meditate, but not on a strict daily basis. Sometimes when I walk, I try to meditate by listening and being present with the sounds of nature, smelling the air and feeling my steps. My diet is really the core to feeling grounded. It leaves me so much more clear-minded, present, openhearted and connected to the Earth. RR: What kinds of roles do you find most enlivening, and what upcoming acting projects are you most excited about? AS: Juicy characters that have depth. I love roles that I can sink my teeth into, ones that are complicated, contradictory. Recently I was the lead in two indie films, Judy Small and The Pleasure of Your Presence. Both roles were so much fun, and great, interesting parts to play. Last year, I really enjoyed playing Bonnie Nolan on the TV show American Woman. Bonnie was a feisty mama in the ’70s. Overall, I’m excited about working with filmmakers like I did on The Killing of a Sacred Deer (Yorgos Lanthimos) and The Lodge (Veronika Franz, Severin Fiala). RR: The Lodge premiered at Sundance to rave reviews. Can you tell

us about working on it? Looks frightening—in a good way. AS: At this time, I have yet to see it, but I can’t wait to watch it. I’m a bit scared! Some of my friends saw it, and jumped into each other’s arms at a certain point in the film. RR: How do you cultivate a sense of well-being in the home? AS: Food is No. 1, hands-down: cooking and serving plant-based meals. Bear and I maintain a veggie garden in our backyard, and make it a ritual to plant and harvest together. We also 136

supplement the gardening with weekly farmers market adventures. After food, every material in our house has been consciously considered for its sustainability and health. A couple of examples: Almost all of the furniture in our house is vintage and bought second-hand; we have a house filtration system, so we can drink and cook with clean water while also eliminating the use of plastic bottles; our graywater is recycled for our fruit trees; and we use Branch Basics plant-based, nontoxic eco cleaning materials.
