Now that I’m settling back at home after my recent travels, I’ve been happy to get back into a more steady routine. Granted, things change daily and I’ve learned how to embrace it! What works for each of us will, of course, be different. At this stage of my life I am grateful for a flexible schedule. I still believe, though, that morning rituals are such a good way to get centered and balanced for whatever the day brings. This is a typical morning in the life of JSHealth:
6:30am: Upon waking, I make a conscious effort to not look at my phone or email until AFTER my morning routine.
6:35am: I meditate for ten minutes. This usually involves me saying thanks and manifesting a good life. I’ll share more about this in a future blog post, because it’s really done incredible things!
6:45am: I prepare and drink a cup of warm lemon water – a typical nutritionist!
7:00am: Time to get moving! I love to work out before my day begins as I don’t enjoy exercising in the afternoon as much. It’s such a great time to get out in the fresh air and clear your mind. And you can’t beat the extra hit of endorphins! I usually take a walk outside, got to yoga or Pilates, or take a barre class – but I also embrace 2-3 days of rest each week.
7:30am: Coffee break! Typically I have 1 coffee a day that I savor and just adore. I normally have a piccolo (full cream milk) or sometimes an almond milk piccolo if I’m taking a break from dairy.
8:00am: Breakfast time. I usually prepare a healthy breakfast at home – either eggs, a protein smoothie or on a cold day, I love a bowl of porridge. And when I’m feeling creative, I’ll work on a new breakfast recipe! All of my favourite recipes are in my new book, The Healthy Life.
9:00am: With my morning routine complete, I then switch on and begin working with the JSHealth team. This is also when I start responding to texts and emails. Taking that time in the morning is such a gift and it allows me to really put all my focus into my work and responsibilities.
