Miranda Kerr confesses that she’s not a morning person, but the Australian model and founder of skincare company KORA Organics is up at 5.30am every day with a to-do list that includes managing three kids (Flynn, 11; Hart, 2; Myles, 10 months), self-care time, preparing breakfast, running a company and plenty more.
Finding balance in all areas in my life is important—including setting aside time for myself to do things that bring me joy. That way I feel that I can give more of myself to others or what I happen to be working on at the time.MIRANDA KERR’S DAILY WELLNESS ROUTINE | POOSH
Kerr and her husband, Snapchat co-founder and CEO Evan Spiegel, wake up early in the morning while the kids are still sleeping to get time to thesmelves. “I’ll do a 20-minute meditation and some light stretching before the kids wake up, and make sure that I don’t turn my phone on otherwise I’ll be stuck in emails – I always sleep with my phone on aeroplane mode,” she told RTE in 2019.
If the kids are still asleep, Kerr will take some time for her morning skincare routine, which involves, exfoliating, cleansing, misting and moisturising. Then it’s breakfast time. Kerr usually starts her day off with some celery juice, “it’s really helped me with digestion, clarity, I just feel healthier and energised on it,” then has a smoothie, a blend of blueberries, spirulina, barley grass, orange juice and bananas.
“If I’m still hungry after that, I’ll make some home-made oatmeal or avocado on gluten free toast,” she wrote on her company website.
On a typical day, Kerr will drop her kids off at school then head into the KORA Organics office. “My company’s office is around the corner, so I might go in right after dropping him [Flynn] off. I’m involved in every facet of the business: packaging, product development, in-store appearances, messaging.”
Kerr will also try to squeeze in some exercise in the morning — an hour of yoga or Pilates. “My normal exercise routine is Pilates three to four times a week, yoga three times a week – I have a ritual with my husband where we do yoga at least once in a weekend,” she told Evening Standard. “If he’s away travelling then I do it with the boys. Sometimes we do family yoga with all of them.”
In a 2020 blog post on the KORA Organics website, Kerr talked about the family’s routine during COVID lockdown:
At the moment the entire family is working & schooling from home so our daily schedule is a bit different now. Flynn has been home-schooling via video conference while I try to keep Hart & Myles entertained. We’ve been reading books, drawing, swinging on our swings in the backyard, cooking together and video chatting with family & friends on Snapchat (the kids love all the fun filters!). In between, I’m on works emails & text all day and do conference calls during Hart & Myles nap times so I can spend quality time with them when they’re awake. Being a mother is my first priority.Miranda’s Morning Routine | KORA Organics Blog
Kerr usually winds up her day with a home-cooked dinner (“Sometimes I will do my slow roast chicken with turmeric. That’s really satisfying, with sweet potatoes and broccoli.”), then spend a coupe hours between 6.30-8.30pm to get the kids ready for bed.
After the kids are asleep, Kerr will spend some time on her self-care routine, catch up on the day with her husband, send some last-minute emails then put her phone on airplane mode for the night and go to sleep at 10.30pm.
We love our sleep! Before I met him, I used to stay up doing emails or whatever, but he has taught me the importance of a good night’s rest. It’s so nice, I can’t even begin to tell you.Miranda Kerr’s Daily Wellness Routine | Poosh
