Start Your Day with Hydration

Elle recently revealed to Body + Soul that she hydrates first thing in the morning. "I like to start my day in the way I intend for it to flow. I'm usually up with the sun and the first thing I do is hydrate with filtered water and lime. I'll then get outside and put my feet on the earth to ground. I do some yoga in the morning sun, or Zach Bush's 4 Minute Workout to stimulate nitric oxide. Sometimes I'll go for a cold plunge afterwards followed by a matcha in the sunshine before getting ready for my day," she said. 


Drink Elixirs

Elle is a big fan of her Wellco The Super Elixir. "I'm loving the unflavoured right now. I find it essential for wellness from within — it helps my sense of vitality, strengthens the immune system, supports the digestive system and gives my skin a healthy glow. I've found that it also seems to curb any sugar cravings so my moods are stable and it's easier to balance," she told Body + Soul. 


Eat Plant-Based Meals

Elle encourages a plant-based diet. "Being plant-based, I prefer meals made at home with love, with those I love. All my groceries are locally grown and organic, handpicked from the Saturday farmer's market. A normal meal might look like Dr Sara Siso's miso mushroom soup recipe with Japanese sweet potato. So very delicious – the more interesting the mushrooms, the better!" she told the publication. 


Prioritize Self-Care

Elle stresses the importance of self-care. "I'm a big believer in energy healing, so I'll take regular appointments for acupuncture, chiropractic, breath work and sound healing among others. I've just discovered the Russian Banyas, an ancient tradition of steam sauna including flaying with dry tree or herb branches called veniks," she said. 


Get Your Zen On

"I take care of my mind, body and spirit every day with breath practice and meditation," Elle revealed to Body + Soul. "My daily practice includes meditating in the morning for around 25 minutes – either guided, or in silence. I try to live my life in a perpetual flow of meditative connection rather than just at specified times."


Exercise in Nature

Elle loves to workout, but chooses outdoor workout over indoor "I love being outside and connecting to nature. I choose activities where I am outside, close to nature as much as possible — hiking, biking, swimming or simply sitting in the fresh air and sunshine. I don't have a set schedule – I go with the flow, but I go," she explained.
