We all have coworkers who seem to have it all together—including what seems like an impossible exercise routine. We imagine them waking up at 5 AM and tossing together a body and mind nourishing smoothie, heading out for a run while watching the sun rise, and still managing to arrive early at the office with the kind of glow you can’t pay for.
