Each day is so varied as I work across multiple businesses in wellness and skincare but a typical day goes like this;
Mornings. I wake up and have coffee in bed. I enjoy one good coffee a day and nothing gets done until I have my first sip. Check news, social posts and diary for the day. Next is either a good long brisk walk or a yoga class. If I have time, I do both! I like to exercise first thing so that if my day gets really busy I know that I have already done my work out for the day. Each day is different as my work is varied, I could be in a brand consulting meeting, meeting with packaging designers, taste testings for a new organic anti ageing supplement I am working on, at a Skinstitut board meeting, at a media event or meeting with my book publisher for my new book The Forensic Nutritionist, to be launched 2017.
Lunch. Many of my friends are self employed, so we often use lunch time to catch up and try out the healthy cafes in Sydney. I am also a big networker and believe in supporting others within the industry. Lunchtime meeting are a great way to do this.
Afternoon. I don’t do any physical skin treatments anymore due to my busy schedule but I do still do nutritional and skincare consults for my clients. I believe good skin starts from the inside out so no matter how well you take care of your skin on the outside you also need to take care of the inside. I use holistic diagnostic techniques such as analysing the skin, fingernails, body shape and hair alongside traditional pathology testing to gain a good understanding of what may be going on with my clients. The skin is a direct reflection of what is going on inside the body so when you combine the right nutrients with the right topical skincare amazing results can be achieved. My clients have had wonderful results from following the acne and clear skin diet ebook.
Late afternoon. Emails, responding to media Q&A’s, writing for fionatuck.com and media articles. I like to write about topical information that is non biased, user friendly diet fact sheets, nutrition plans, healthy skin guides, and healthy recipes for my clients and followers to use to support their homecare regimes. All of the current information on my website is free to download in the hope that it will help and inspire others.
Evening. Dinner usually consists of a light protein such as salmon with lots of veggies or bone broth based soups often with a cup of tea and a healthy treat like a bliss ball as an evening snack.
After dinner. I like to do a gentle yoga/meditation at home most evenings if I am not going out. Having a busy lifestyle means that I can get anxious quite easily and when I get stressed carbs can be my go to comfort. Yoga is my carb craving stress buster and makes me feel connected, enlighted and euphoric. I am currently near the end of completing a 500hr yoga teaching certificate and so evenings are a good time to practice my class sequencing. I am about to go on a 7 day yoga retreat in Bali to teach others about how to reduce stress levels and balance hormones but it is also a wonderful time for me to take some time out too. I plan to run regular short weekend retreats next year in Sydney to encompass nutritional cleanses, skin therapy, mediation and yoga.
