Elle Macpherson: My wellbeing weekend

From shopping at local markets, to practising yoga to wind down, and getting a head start on the new week; model and businesswoman Elle Macpherson shares her weekend routine.

Home is…

“I am based in Miami and my WelleCo head office is on the other side of the world in Western Australia. WelleCo is a globally focused company, so coordinating everything and everyone in the different time zones can be a logistical whirlwind. On Sunday nights, I plan what needs to be achieved with everyone for the week ahead to run smoothly and efficiently.”

For down time…

I love to eat a healthy amount of nutritious food, so like going to the local fresh market on Saturday mornings – and stay active whenever I can. I drink lots of water and catch up on sleep, watch movies, hang with the kids and cook.

To relax…

I love Vinyasa flow yoga. I enjoy doing it in a studio with like-minded people. At night, I do a yoga pose to help induce sleep. It involves lying on the bed with my legs up the wall. Afterwards, I sip a cup of my WelleCo Sleep Welle Calming Tea. It is passion flower-scented and enriched with skullcap, valerian root and hops to relieve nerves and anxiety.

Out and about…

I enjoy exploring the outdoors. If in Miami, it might be a swim in the ocean, waterskiing, a walk along the beach with the dogs, yoga with a friend or a bike ride. Every weekend is different.

Good company…

My favourite people to spend the weekend with are my two boys. When both are home I dedicate the weekends to them. We will go waterskiing, wakesurfing or something we all love. Meal times are important, too, and a great way to catch up. We share stories, turn the music up and laugh a lot together.
