How I make it work-Crystal Newman

Crystal Newman 

By Brenda Banura

How do you manage to look good always?
Thank you! I try to keep it smart casual most days and then dress appropriately if I’m going for a meeting or function. You will not find me in a ball gown at a cocktail or in shorts at a dinner!

Can you share your fitness tips?
I like swimming, it’s relaxing and tones my body evenly. I also drink lots of water, eat plenty of fruits and watch what I eat.

How do you manage to get time for your child?
Children! I have two girls. I spend more time in the morning with the little one when the older is at school. The weekends are when we spend most time together. Sunday is strictly a family day unless I’m working.

And time for the husband?
We try to find time to go out for lunch or dinner during the week. Sometimes it’s a movie or we meet up for a drink after work.

What do you do during the day when you are not on radio?
Well, it really depends on what project I’m working on at the time. I could be filming or meeting with clients for projects I’m involved in or events I’m going to MC at. It varies. Once in a while I’m free enough to go swimming in the middle of the day.

How do you handle stress?
You have to learn to just let some things go. Some of the things we’re constantly worrying about aren’t worth stressing over. I read a lot, listen to music and spend time with my girls. Doing things that make you happy is the best way to beat stress.
