Jess' Energizing Morning Routine

Mornings are an incredibly important part of my day. It sets the tone for everything that follows – from my energy to my mindset and focus. 

It all starts with good, consistent habits that create a calm structure. Although each morning may look a little different depending on where I am or what engagements I have, above all, I always prioritize self-care, even if it is just for 10 minutes to make space for joy and mindfulness. 

Read on for my morning non-negotiables which truly ground and set me up for a positive, productive day ahead…   


No technology 

I always make sure to switch off all technology by 8:30pm, the night before! Each morning I’ll wake up around 7.30am, as I need my 8 hours of sleep each night. I continue my technology ban into the morning – so no checking of social media, texts, or emails – until after I’ve been awake for at least 30-40 minutes. This digital detox is the first step towards waking up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day with a clear mind. 

Hydrate + enjoy a balanced breakfast 

I make sure to wake to warm water with lemon to hydrate my body. Then, I follow it up with a nourishing and satiating breakfast that contains protein, fiber, and good fats to naturally support my energy levels. I’ll fuel my body with my favorite Raspberry Protein Smoothie, or – my current obsession, and a true classic – egg and smashed avocado on wholegrain toast. Next, I mindfully sip and savor my piccolo coffee. I follow the JSHealth coffee rule, which is to be extra conscious of my caffeine intake throughout the day. I enjoy 1 or 2 max before 12pm! For an extra skin-loving boost of energy, I’ll also whip up our Vitality X + Collagen to take with me on the go.

Deep belly breaths + gratitude 

As soon as I wake up, I spend a few minutes taking deep belly breaths. This helps me feel centered and connected, calming my nervous system. I love to repeat positive affirmations, directing my attention to what I am grateful for. Saying, ‘I love myself just as I am’ and ‘I’m grateful for the abundance in my life’ puts me in a good headspace and connects me with a deep sense of gratitude that I carry with me throughout the day. I also carve out 10 minutes of my morning to practice mindfulness with a guided meditation session from the JSHealth App!

Prioritize movement

I love to start my day with a 30 minute workout from the JSHealth App.  It’s so important to get your body moving and I love the rush of endorphins that exercise gives me. I like to listen to my body and exercise according to my mood. If I need something more grounding, I’ll go for a walk or do some yoga. If I want to sweat it out, I’ll do some weight training or HIIT (high-intensity interval training).

Pamper with a skincare routine

Taking care of our skin, the body’s largest organ, is a real act of self-love. I’m a big believer that an effective skincare routine doesn’t need to be complicated. I personally follow the JSHealth Vitamins’ 4-Step Skincare System, which includes cleansing, a brightening serum, an age-defying oil, and a protective moisturizer. I use a gua sha beauty tool for maximum absorption and lymphatic drainage, plus it feels like a lovely massage. My skin has honestly never felt better!

Supercharge with AM+

For added support to power through the morning, I pop one tablet of JSHealth Vitamins AM+ Stress + Energy Levels. This daytime support formula really helps me to maintain focus and get the most out of my mornings. It stars a combination of science-backed and traditional vitamins, nutrients, and adaptogenic herbs to relieve fatigue and support a healthy stress response – the extra edge I need to conquer the midday slump! 

This is going to look different for everyone, and that’s OK! It’s about determining what will get you centred, grounded and motivated. I hope these tips inspire you to create your own energising AM ritual!
