Lilly detailed her week to Women's Health, revealing that she starts every day with a "one and a half hour morning routine." The first thing she does? "I get outta bed, I stretch," she says. "Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints," says Harvard Health. "Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way. That puts you at risk for joint pain, strains, and muscle damage."

Lilly gets her zen on daily. "I meditate for 20 minutes. I drink tea," she continues. "When you meditate, you may clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress," says the Mayo Clinic. Benefits include:

  • Gaining a new perspective on stressful situations
  • Building skills to manage your stress
  • Increasing self-awareness
  • Focusing on the present
  • Reducing negative emotions
  • Increasing imagination and creativity
  • Increasing patience and tolerance
  • Lowering resting heart rate
  • Lowering resting blood pressure
  • Improving sleep quality



Part of her routine is getting some steps in with the help of her pooch. "I go on a walk. I spend time with my dog," she says. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.


Intermittent Fasting

Lilly practices time-restricted eating. "At one o'clock, I'm gonna break my fast because I intermittent fast and I'm going to eat. So I start eating at 1:00 PM and I stop eating at 9:00 PM which is good because it forces me to have a lunch, and so it really helps me have that pause in the day," she told Women's Health. "For lunch, I'm probably going to eat chicken with a side of roasted carrots or fish made in my air fryer because it makes me feel like I know how to cook. Eight minutes in the air fryer, chef's kiss fish with a side of broccoli."




Lilly gets a massage once a week. "I'm gonna keep working until about six 7:00 PM because on Mondays I get a massage. At 9:00 PM I get a 90 minute massage by a lovely masseuse that comes to my house because I am so, so lucky and I recognize that I get a one and a half hour massage," she says. According to the Mayo Clinic, studies support the many benefits of getting a regular rub down. These include stress reduction, lessening pain and muscle tightness, increased relaxation, and improved immunity. 


Self-Care Sundays

Lilly gives herself love on Sundays. She starts with a deep conditioning treatment. "I do a face mask before I sleep. I sit outside with nature. I do everything," she told Women's Health. "Self-care on Sunday. It's my favorite day at the end of the day. Wellness is about finding the combination of things and activities that are right for you. I think for so long in my life I convinced myself it had my routine, had to look like everyone else's, but that wasn't right for me. I love working the way I do and I love taking care of myself the way I do, and that combination's right for me."
