We asked Dan Capuano to share a little more about himself through a series of revealing questions:
🐶 What is your spirit animal?
My dog. I know this is a cop out, but hear me out. We got him during Covid and given the never-ending time we spend together, he and I have bonded to a point of imprint, where he has become a true reflection of my spirit— and hopefully I his, based on how pure and happy he is!
🇮🇹 Where is the best destination you’ve been?
Italy. Beyond the familial ties, it was the best trip I’ve ever taken, that had the perfect combination of weather, food, sights, history, and overall culture. We spent this trip in Florence and Rome—I can’t wait to go back and see more.
✍🏻 If you had chosen another path in life, what might you be doing now?
Something where I could be more creative in my day to day—and probably write a lot more.

❤️ Name three self-care practices you have adopted to treat yourself well?
The first, and most important one for me, is movement. That can range from full blown trips to the gym, to something as simple as getting up and going for walks with the dog outside.
Next, diet and attention to what you consume. You’re only going to feel as good as the things you put into your body, so pay attention to that.
Lastly, sleep. I spent so much of my earlier years not prioritizing getting enough rest—now that I do, I’ve never felt better.
