She Is Grateful
Julianne's positive attitude helps keep her in a good mental place. "What are three things you are grateful for today?" she asked her followers in her latest post. "This is one of the most powerful questions I ask myself as I start each day. Gratitude has the power to shift our mindset, which changes everything. It brings me perspective and inspires a mindset that anything is possible. I have so much gratitude for my sisters and the lessons they teach me through their lived experience."
She Eats What Her Body Needs
Julianne stays away from gluten and animal products. "I sound so L.A. right now," she said in a "What I Eat in a Day" video with Harper's Bazaar, "but it's because my body needs it. Because trust me, do I love flour, I love sugar, I love cookies, I love all the things. But I'm really just trying to focus on my health from the inside out."
She Drinks Lemon Water
Julianne is one of many stars who start their day with a glass of warm lemon water. "This is how I start my morning every. single. day," she said in an Instagram video. "Having a strong morning routine gives me a sense of stability and puts my mind at ease knowing that I'm waking up, cleansing my body and committing to my wellness." She also told Harper's Bazaar that pre-makes the drink the night before, which "usually consists of lukewarm temperature water with half of a lemon—and sitting overnight, really getting all of those juices flushed out in there."
She Also Drinks Green Juice
Green juice is also on Julianne's daily menu."I usually find a way to do some sort of celery juice, or something that also gives me a little bit of sugar before I go do a quick workout," she said. "Or I'll do like, amino acids [vitamins] or something like that to give me that support, that energy that I'm looking for." One of her favorite green juice recipes? "I usually like it a little sweeter, less bitter, so I put in a green apple, some spinach, kale. Again, if I want it sweeter, I'll put some carrots in. But I love ginger, and lemon too, so I'll put that in," she told Elle in 2016. "Cucumber, celery, anything green, really. Sometimes I'll add beets too, depending on my mood. And then I'll go work out, it just depends."
Moderation Is Key
Julianne makes sure to maintain moderation when it comes to her diet. "If I could give you any words of encouragement with what you eat, it's enjoy yourself, everything in moderation, and if you love your body and love what you're putting into your body, your body's gonna know," she explained to Harper's Bazaar. "So if you're gonna have a drink, if you're gonna have a yummy sweet tooth, enjoy it. Take the pleasure in it."
Dance Is Her Favorite Workout
Julianne recently launched her own dance-inspired workout, Kingry. "Dance continues to surprise me. Dance strengthens muscles that I didn't even know I had – physically, emotionally and energetically 💪🏼😊✨ I'm feeling so grateful for my daily #KINRGY practice which brings me strength and power – internally and externally! Connecting with the elements and moving intuitively is what it's all about! The more I move, the more I feel myself in #flow and fully expressed," she explained in a recent Instagram post.
