Start the Day with "Me" Time
Emma's morning ritual involves taking time for herself. "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."
Prioritize Sleep Sleep
Emma doesn't put too much pressure on herself. "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."
Hire a Personal Trainer
Emma told Shape that she works out with a trainer, Andrea Orbeck. "Our sessions are an hour, focusing mostly on arms, abs, and ass-the all-important three A's," she says.
Emma also likes to strike a pose. "I also do yoga. I usually take classes with a friend," she says. "A number of studies have shown that yoga may help reduce stress and anxiety. Yoga can enhance your mood and overall sense of well-being. Yoga might also help you manage your symptoms of depression and anxiety that are due to difficult situations," says the Mayo Clinic.
Exercise to Offset Your Eating
Emma's motivation to work out is so she can eat more. "I started working out regularly when I was living in New Orleans shooting American Horror Story: Coven several years ago. I really fell in love with the food there. To counter all I was eating, I worked out more. It was a great balance: I'd have fried-chicken sliders at night and then go to my yoga class the next morning," she told Shape.
Pay Attention to Hunger Cues
"With my diet, I do what feels good for me at the time," Emma explained to 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?"
"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 continued. Emma works out with Nonna Gleyzer at Body by Nonna. "I can see my shape transform within a couple of sessions," she maintains. "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!"
Eat Like Emma
Emma's morning beverage is a juice from Moon Juice, Spirit Dust, "a fun way" to begin the morning, she says. "I also drink iced coffee even when it's freezing outside because hot coffee doesn't wake me up." On her days off, 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."
As demonstrated by her latest Instagram post, 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."
