SUPR: What does your morning routine look like?
AM: I’m early to rise 7 days a week. I get up between 5 – 5:30am, then exercise via an app (alternating between cardio and yoga). I usually check my emails and social media briefly before breakfast, spend some time with the boys before they're out the door for the school bus, then at my desk by 7:30am.
SUPR: What does ‘health’ mean to you?
AM: Health goes way beyond nutrition. It’s body, mind and soul. Without health we struggle with all aspects of life, so it’s within the top 3 aspects of living for me!
SUPR: What are five things you’ll always have in your fridge / pantry?
SUPR: What’s your favourite form of movement?
AM: Walking without a doubt!!
SUPR: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
AM: I would love to do a year in Byron Bay, mostly because of the warmer weather, relaxed lifestyle and beach life.
SUPR: What is one fun fact most people wouldn’t know about you?
AM: I’m a mover. I struggle with sitting for long lengths of time, which makes my job difficult as I’m at my desk most of the day. Any opportunity I get; I stand up, move and very often jog on the spot just to get my blood flowing!
SUPR: Have you ever struggled in the past with being your true self?
AM: Not really. I’m very black and white and fortunately don’t feel compelled to do things to fit in. As a result, I’m always myself – not loud, not quiet, uncomplicated & there because I want to be :)
SUPR: The health industry isn’t perfect. If you had the power to change one thing about it, what would it be and why?
AM: I really feel that Social Media has blown a lot of topics out of proportion and also put an emphasis on elements which don’t really need to be scrutinised and overanalysed. It’s important to focus on your own health; that being mindset, nutrition and movement in a way that suits you.
Perhaps there needs to be a module at school which takes students through being a viewer on Social Media, teaching them how to absorb content without taking it too seriously.
