I wake up and think of a few things I am grateful for. I’m a big believer in not checking my phone / social media / emails until after I’ve completed my nourishing morning routine. This changes the tone and feeling of the day for me.
I then head to my kitchen, pop a probiotic and meditate for 20 minutes or simply do a deep belly breathing exercise. Usually during this time, I like to visualise my goals and dreams. This is an incredibly motivating practice, try it!
I make a piccolo coffee and then head off to yoga or for a walk. These days my exercise approach is kind and gentle. Some days I let my body rest – healthy too!
I make a JSHealth Breakfast. Lately, I have been making an almond butter protein smoothie – so yum. I always ensure my breakfast contains fibre, protein and good fats to keep my going all morning. I then pop my daily vitamins post breakfast.
My work day begins. I am either in the kitchen recipe testing, in the office responding to emails or in meetings. This is the time I log back onto social media.
I feel much more creative during the morning so you will either find me writing my third book during this time or coming up with new app content. I try keep meetings or phone calls to after lunchtime when my creative content for the day is completed.
I have a salad or nourish bowl for lunch. I use the ‘Build a Meal’ guide in the app. This helps me build a satiating meal to keep me going through the afternoon.
This is when I am usually with my team brainstorming ideas for the JSHealth App, vitamins or recipes.
I sit down with my husband Dean, the CEO of JSHealth, for our daily meeting. We like to discuss where we are at with our main projects – App, Program, vitamins. During this time I often take a break to enjoy a 4-5pm protein rich snack. This is usually something simple such as 2x protein balls, carrot sticks with hummus or Greek yoghurt with cinnamon!

At the end of my workday, I have a look at my to-do list and take note of what needs to be done the following day. I write to-do lists in the notes section of my phone and computer and this helps with organisation and provides a clear structure for the day ahead. This means I am 100% ready for the next day and mentally clear.
I also post a JSHealth meal inspiration pic on Instagram at this time. Once this is complete, I switch absolutely everything off – phone, emails and delete Instagram. This has been a game-changer for me. As a result, I am less stressed, sleep soundly and wake up with the energy and motivation I need to keep building my brand.
I make my husband and I a nourishing dinner. My go-to dinners are one-pan recipes such as this delicious One-Pan Lemon & Herb Chicken.
All my dinners take around 20 minutes to make. I’m a big believer in creating quick and easy recipes. Find my dinner recipes here.
I love to refer to the JSHealth app for ideas and inspiration!
Netflix, chill, bath and deep belly breathing.
