The 58-year old said she sticks to a plant-based organic diet and has regular ‘cold plunges’ and sauna sessions throughout the day to ‘reset’

Elle said the first thing she does when she wakes up is ‘smile’, as she starts her day as soon as the sun is up and hydrates with a glass of filtered water with lime. 

‘I’ll then get outside and put my feet on the earth to ground. I do some yoga in the morning sun or Dr Zach’s Four Minute Workout to stimulate nitric oxide,’ she said. 

‘Sometimes I’ll go for a cold plunge afterwards followed by a matcha in the sunshine before getting ready for my day.’

Elle also does daily meditation in the morning for 25 minutes and ‘breath practice’ to take care of her ‘mind body and spirit’.

The mum-of-two always chooses to exercise outside and in nature by hiking, biking, swimming or ‘simply sitting in the fresh air and sunshine’. 

She said she has no set schedule when it comes to exercise and prefers to ‘go with the flow’ and swears by regular sessions in her infrared sauna as well as a cold plunge to ‘reset’. 

A ‘big believer in energy healing’, Elle revealed she books regular appointments for acupuncture, chiropractic, breath work and sound healing as well as Russian Banyas, an ancient tradition of steam bathing with a wood stove burning dry tree or herb branches called veniks.

Elle adheres to a plant-based diet, prefers homemade meals made ‘with love’, and buys all her groceries locally grown and organic, handpicked from her local farmer’s market. 

One of her favourite weeknight dinners is miso mushroom soup with Japanese sweet potato.

She adds a collagen elixir to her morning smoothie and takes gut support and protein supplements. 

To wind down in the evening, Elle again likes to relax in the sauna then take a dip in cold water which she says is ‘great for detoxing, immune boosting, lymphatic support and relaxation’. 

Her nightly ritual then involves drinking a cup of WelleCo calming Tea and the last thing she does before sleeping is: ‘Smile. Put my hands on my solar plexus, think about what I’m grateful for that day, and drift into a peaceful sleep.’
