A Day in the Life: Unveiling the Secrets of a Balanced and Healthy Lifestyle
A day in my life as a health and wellness blogger is filled with purpose and passion. Here’s a glimpse into my routine:
I start my day early, usually waking up between 5-6 a.m. to kickstart my morning routine. I begin with writing in my Five Minute Journal, a gratitude practice I’ve had for over seven years. This takes 5 minutes out of my day! Afterward, I’ll meditate using my Muse headband to center my mind and set positive intentions for the day ahead. This helps me cultivate a calm and focused mindset.
After meditation, I meditate on light stretching or yoga to wake up my body and get the energy flowing. Physical activity in the morning boosts my mood and enhances my overall well-being, and I love that this takes me anywhere between 10-20 minutes. In this sense, my morning routine takes me 30 minutes, not two hours like ‘That Girl morning routine’ you see on Instagram. Once I finish this, I’ll feed my pup Lucy and make a cup of coffee, listen to a podcast or audiobook on Audible, and begin work at 6:30 am where I’ll work through until 11 am.
Breakfast is an essential part of my day. I believe in nourishing my body with wholesome foods, so I often prepare a nutritious meal that includes a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and plant-based proteins. This fuels me with energy and sustains me throughout the morning. Because I practice intermittent fasting 16:8 (16 hours fasting and an 8-hour eating window), my break-fast is generally around 11 am.
Transform your life with the Five Minute Journal. Even on the busiest days, spend only five minutes practicing gratitude to boost positivity, reduce anxiety, and improve well-being. It's the simplest, science-backed way to a happier you.

Mid-Morning to Afternoon
As a health and wellness blogger, I spend a significant part of my day working on content creation, editing, reviewing social content created by my Social Media assistant, work meetings and the upkeep of my business. I have a dedicated workspace where I curate blog posts, create engaging social media content, and develop new ideas to inspire my audience.
I prioritize research and staying updated with the latest health and wellness trends. This helps me provide accurate and evidence-based information to my readers. Whether writing articles, shooting recipe videos, or designing infographics, I strive to deliver valuable and inspiring content promoting a healthy lifestyle.
Lunchtime takes place around 2-3 pm, allowing me to recharge and refuel. I prepare a balanced meal, often incorporating fresh vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats. I take a break from work and enjoy my meal mindfully, allowing myself to relax and recharge for the rest of the day.
Afternoons are usually dedicated to engaging with my audience. I respond to comments, messages, and emails, providing guidance and support to individuals seeking advice on their health and wellness journey. I believe in building a community and fostering connections with my readers, so I make it a point to engage in meaningful conversations and address their concerns.

In the evening, I prioritize self-care and winding down. This may include activities such as walking in nature, practicing yoga or Pilates, or reading a book related to personal growth and well-being. Balancing work and personal time is important to prevent burnout and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Dinner takes place around 5:30 or 6 pm is another opportunity for me to nourish my body with wholesome foods. I prepare a meal that includes a variety of colorful vegetables, plant-based proteins, and healthy grains. I strive to experiment with new recipes and flavors, keeping my meals exciting and enjoyable. Dinner is typically on the lighter side.
Rise and Shine: Embracing Mindfulness from the Start
Every morning, we wake up with a sense of purpose and gratitude. The day begins with a moment of mindfulness, allowing us to center our minds and set positive intentions for the day ahead. We cultivate a calm and focused mindset through a few minutes of meditation or deep breathing exercises.
