There’s a lot of buzz around prioritising self-care right now – and in our opinion, it should always be front of mind. A healthy daily routine that focuses on our inner and outer health is so important when it comes to looking after your physical health, stress levels and overall wellbeing and happiness. We’ve pulled our favourite wellness tips together to create a healthy morning routine that will help you kick start your day the “wellness” way.

Benefits of a healthy daily routine

Wellness routines and self-care rituals are a wonderful way to bring balance and structure into busy lives, especially when it comes to your general health and wellbeing. Some of our favourite benefits of a healthy daily routine are:

  • Improved mood and reduced stress levels (and if you need an extra hand in that department, check out our six steps to less stress)
  • Better concentration levels during the day
  • Improved physical health and quality sleep


How do you create a wellness routine?

A wellness routine will look different for everyone, so tailor yours to suit your needs, schedule and what you actually enjoy. In this blog we’ll give you some tips and tricks to help create a healthy daily routine that you can add to with activities that you love and that make you feel good. Maybe it’s yoga, maybe it’s exercise or maybe it’s relaxing with a good book. Whatever it is – find what works for you and it will be so much easier to stick to it.

And sticking with it is the important part - researchers say it takes 4 - 6 weeks for tasks to become a habit - and that’s when you get into the good stuff! Once your new routine becomes a habit, it means you no longer need to rely on motivation to keep up with those extra activities that support a healthy life.

We recommend keeping a wellness journal to track what makes you a happier version of yourself so you know what to keep and what to drop from your routine. And if the idea of a whole new morning and evening routine is a little daunting, simply add the steps one at a time until they become second nature.


Your healthy morning routine

To kick start your healthy morning routine, we suggest setting an alarm earlier than you usually would. This means you can relax and enjoy it, rather than rushing through the steps or skipping it because you just don’t have time. To get you started, a healthy morning routine could look a little like this:


  • Make your bed. Simple, right? This small task has been coined by journalist and author Charles Duhigg as a ‘keystone habit’, meaning it has the potential to have a positive ripple effect in other aspects of your life. Research tells us that making your bed in the morning can also have positive mental health benefits, including a sense of accomplishment and increased productivity.

  • Exercise. Whether you like to walk or jog, go to the gym, or stretch in the comfort of your own home, moving your body in the morning is a great way to get those endorphins flowing.

  • Perform a basic skincare routine. This little self-care moment at the beginning of your day just makes you feel good, and it’s necessary for protecting your skin from the environmental stressors you’ll come across in your day. You can build an entire skincare routine from The Essential Seven, and if you need tips and tricks on how to build a skincare routine from scratch (or if you want tips for improving an existing skincare routine), our skincare routine blog has you covered.

  • Prepare a healthy breakfast. It’s important to fuel our bodies for the day ahead, and some of our all-time favourite breakies include avocado and egg on wholemeal toast, a banana and honey smoothie, or overnight oats topped with berries and LSA.

  • Set your intentions for the day. Some people like to journal while others like to create a to-do list. Whichever you prefer, putting pen to paper first thing is a great way to get your thoughts out of your head and start your day with direction. If you want to learn more about the importance of setting intentions, check out our blog on setting and achieving goals.

Your healthy night routine

Your healthy night routine is all about unwinding and resetting. We’ve come up with a few ideas to get you started, and you can always tailor it to include some of your own relaxing practices that bring you joy:


  • Stretching or yoga. Whether your 9-5 is spent at a desk or on your feet doing physical labour, we all hold stress from our day within our muscles. Take 5 or 10 to intentionally move through your body, stretching each muscle as you go.

  • Perform a nourishing skincare routine. Just as your morning skincare routine revitalises and protects your skin for the day ahead, your evening skincare routine resets and replenishes your skin over night. We love repairing our skin with the luxurious, multi-tasking ThemGenes Daily Resculpting Serum and the deeply-hydrating GoNightly Overnight Repair Cream. You can also find them both in The Essential Seven set, and they both feature our DreamScentz™ technology which has been designed to optimise your sleep experience.

  • Take evening supplements. We love taking supplements in the evening that support immunity, mood balance and your ability to cope with stress - like our Beauty Well Super Capsules. They contain essential B vitamins and Zinc for immunity and general health, and they also contain powerful Adaptogenic Herbs.

  • Read a book or listen to a meditation. There’s nothing like switching off from screens to help you unwind before bed.

  • Curate your space for quality sleep. Think of your bedroom as your sanctuary, and make sure you automatically feel relaxed in yours. Clear any clutter from your environment, dim the lights, and make sure the room is not too hot.

What does a healthy lifestyle look like?

A healthy lifestyle is all about balance, and it’s totally ok and to be expected that you may not achieve every activity on your feel-good list every day. You may have a healthy morning routine that’s reserved for work days and a longer, more indulgent morning or night routine that you treat yourself to on weekends. The important thing is making sure you’re taking some time at the start and end of every day to curate a wellness routine that works for you. prioritise your wellbeing.


Healthy Daily Routine FAQs

  • What habits should I start with?
    Start with the step that looks the easiest to fit into your existing routine, as you’ll be more likely to stick with them. We all have time to make our bed, right? So let’s start there. And we can’t go past the importance of a good skincare routine – your future self will thank you for it!

  • How can I make a healthy daily routine?
    Follow our guide to creating a healthy daily routine, and be sure to tailor it to your individual preferences and needs. If you like your daily routine, it will be something you look forward to doing, and before you know it, you’ll have formed healthy habits that will lead to a happier, healthier and more balanced life.

  • What should I do every day for good health?
    For good general health and wellbeing we recommend enjoying a nutritious and balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, prioritising quality sleep, moving your body in some way every day, connecting with loved ones, switching off from screens and taking care of your skin from the inside out with a good skincare routine and daily supplements.

  • Which healthy supplements are the best for energy?
    Our Beauty Brain Super Powder is our pick for giving you energy! It helps you feel more alert for up to five hours thanks to an awesome ingredient called EnXtra™, which is why it’s our favourite substitute for a morning coffee. It also leaves you feeling calm, and supports healthy brain function, mental focus, skin appearance, immune health and gut health.

  • Which healthy supplements are the best for stress?
    Our Beauty Well Super Capsules contain essential B vitamins, Zinc and powerful Adaptogenic Herbs that work together to support your body during stress and fatigue, and maintain normal energy levels and mood balance. Why Adaptogenic Herbs? When we face a stressor, our bodies go through a General Adaptation Syndrome which is a three-stage response: alarm, resistance and exhaustion. Adaptogens can help you stay in the resistance phase for longer: instead of crashing, you carry on.
