5 Healthy Habits to Follow Daily

Aged 52 (and possibly looking a good ten years younger), there is no denying that Elle Macpherson must be doing something right. As a mother, a shrewd businesswoman, an ambassador for many charities as well as one of the world’s most famous models, you may argue that her good looks are mostly down to genetics, but on talking to her, it is very clear that Elle also takes enormous care of herself and that very famous beautiful body.

A huge fan of a wholesome, varied and organic diet, Elle is so passionate about health that three years ago she launched her own wellness empire – WelleCo – with business partner Andrea Bux.

Below, Elle reveals her ‘5-a-day’ wellness tips plus her Four Week Body Plan, which she uses to shape up and feel great before a big event.

 

ELLE’S FIVE-A-DAY

1. Hydrate

“For me, my wellness routine starts with two teaspoons of SUPER ELIXIR every morning in cold spring water, or coconut water for extra hydration, away from any caffeine (which inhibits the absorption of the special bio-live ingredients). To really feel the benefits, I make sure that I take SUPER ELIXIR Alkalising Greens right before I work out in the morning. Drinking enough water is equally as important. I have glass bottles for all of us at home and each morning I make sure they’re full and I put them in full sight around the house so there is always water on hand.”

2. Get Active

“I do some form of fitness that I love for 45 minutes every day – that way it won’t be a chore. I have a much simpler and gentler routine now, I prefer not to go to the gym, instead I love to paddle board, surf, swim laps or water ski. I also love to hike or bike.”

3. Sleep, Sleep, Sleep

“When I think of when I have felt really nourished and strong in life, there is one thing I never underestimate and that is the power of sleep. When the kids were young, I would stay up working until 2am, and I thought I was being really productive. However, little did I know my general wellbeing and health was suffering from only three to four hours’ sleep a night. Sleep has become really important to me and I now make sure I get at least seven hours to wake up and take on the day. The difference in how I feel is profound. Taking the Sleep Welle Fortified Calming Tea before bed really sets me up for a good nights sleep”

4. Meditate

“I love mornings. I take a little time when I first wake up and before the house is up to meditate and prepare for my day — no screens!”

5. Schedule Your Wellness

“If you’re struggling to stay motivated or find you’re not fitting in the 45 minutes of daily exercise, schedule it in your diary. I treat my personal diary like my business diary. So anything I want to prioritise — like exercise — gets scheduled in just like an important meeting.”
