How do you find your daily source of golden balance?
I make my Beyonce Drank in the morning. It’s hot water with fresh turmeric, fresh ginger, fresh lemon, apple cider vinegar and some fresh orange or tangerine juice.
How important is self-care to you, and do you often implement it into your regular rituals?
HUGELY! I try to implement it regularly or else everything else in my life suffers. I meditate daily and try to exercise as much as possible. A good mix of yoga, walking, running, HIIT and weights. I also try to make daily activities like cooking and reading meditative, which means phones in the other room! Digital detoxes whenever possible are so important for me.
Share with us a quote that gives you daily inspiration
“Comparison is the thief of joy.”
We know nourishment from the inside out is fundamental to you. How do you practice this every day?
I try to make every decision a conscious one. I’m aware this is something that this is something I’ll be practicing for the rest of my time on this planet. Whether that’s making myself a balanced breakfast and sitting down to enjoy it or taking long, deep breaths if I’m feeling overwhelmed. It’s so easy to get lost in the noise of the internet and a bustling city, but being more present is something I strive for on a daily basis.
What are some of your favourite ways to wind down?
I love going on long walks putting the world to rights with my sisters and friends. I love cooking and eating with my mum and watching music documentaries with my dad. I love getting home, luxuriating in a really elaborate bubble bath, then curling up on the sofa under a blanket, sipping on a hot chocolate, surrounded by blazing candles and watching a really terrible rom-com.
Ingredients-wise, what are your three non-negotiables in the kitchen?
Oats, frozen berries, ripe bananas, spinach and plant milk
What is your favourite way to use turmeric, be it in your beauty regime or recipes?
I love using it in stews and curries.
