She Prioritizes Self-Care

Emma is all about self-care. "It's so important to set yourself up for the day," she told Harper's Bazaar in 2021. "I cannot wake up without having my coffee and my me-time." She recently took time out of her busy life for a regenerative wellness retreat. 


She Gets Lots of Sleep

Emma prioritizes sleep over everything else. "I'm very easy on myself with diet and exercise. I want to be healthy, and I want to do a good job, but I never put pressure on myself because there are so many more important things, like sleep," she told the Zoe Report. "To me, sleeping is more important than working out."


She Works Out with a Personal Trainer

Emma works out with Andrea Orbeck. "Our sessions are an hour, focusing mostly on arms, abs, and" backside"the all-important three A's," she told Shape. "Muscle burns more calories at rest than fat explains strength and athletic trainer Tom Iannetta, ATC, CSCS. Lots more! Ten pounds of muscle burns 50 calories at rest, whereas 10 pounds of fat burns 20 calories. This means, long after you've stopped working out — even while lounging by the pool or sleeping — your body is still burning over twice as many calories when you're toned than when you're not," says the Cleveland Clinic.


She Does Yoga and Pilates

"I love Pilates. I feel very energized and centered when I walk out the door afterward.I tried to get into running, but it didn't work for me. Pilates is something you take your time at, and it makes me feel very clear," she told Shape. "I can see my shape transform within a couple of sessions," she added. "That's good because I'm that person who, after one class, lifts up her shirt and says, 'Where are my abs?' I want results!" Emma is also a big fan of striking a pose. "I also do yoga. I usually take classes with a friend," she told Shape.


She Eats When and What She Wants

"With my diet, I do what feels good for me at the time," Emma told Shape. "I try not to say that I won't eat something. Instead, I stay in tune with my body and my mind, and I think, What do I feel like eating?" 


This Is What She Eats in a Day


Emma starts her morning with a juice from Moon Juice, Spirit Dust, "a fun way" to begin the day. "I also drink iced coffee even when it's freezing outside because hot coffee doesn't wake me up," she says. If she isn't working, she might cook up eggs and bacon and toast for breakfast. "I adore classic breakfast foods," she says. "For lunch, I'll do a chopped salad with avocado, chicken, and tomatoes. Dinner is a turkey burger, or salmon with teriyaki or ponzu sauce, and brown rice with broccoli. I need snacks, particularly when I'm working. Lately I've become obsessed with seaweed. And chips and guacamole make me so happy! I also love cupcakes, ice cream, and Sidecar Doughnuts. Sometimes I bring sweets for everyone at work as an excuse to eat them."


She Reads

Emma is a bookworm. "Reading is my form of self-care and meditation," she maintains. "I set aside at least 20 minutes a day for it. Sometimes that turns into 30 minutes, an hour, two hours. There are so many books on my dining room table right now that I can't use it for eating. I go to the store and buy every book I want to read for the next few months and put them on the table."
