Morning rituals are such a good way to feel centred and balanced for whatever the day brings.
This is a typical morning in the life of JSHealth:
6.30 a.m. Upon waking, I make a conscious effort to not look at my phone or email until after my morning routine.
6.35 a.m. Deep belly breaths with positive affirmations. This works absolute magic for me. I love taking a few minutes when I first wake up to centre myself. Giving some gratitude and setting positive intentions for the day puts me into the right frame of mind from the start. Before I even get out of bed I set five positive affirmations, such as “I love and accept myself for who I am” and “I am good enough”.
6.45 a.m. I prepare and drink a cup of warm lemon water—a typical nutritionist!
7.00 a.m. 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 two to three days of rest each week.
7.30 a.m. Coffee break! Typically I have one coffee a day that I savour 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.
8.00 a.m. Breakfast time. I usually prepare a healthy breakfast at home—either eggs, my favourite Protein Power 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, Living the Healthy Life.
9.00 a.m. With my morning routine complete, I then switch on and begin working with the JSHealth team. At the moment we’re busy launching my new 8-week online, interactive program. 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.
