Elle Macpherson: How I Approach Burnout

Our Founder and Get The Gloss columnist reveals how she approaches burnout.

“Today, I’m much better acquainted with my immune system and can sense when it requires some love. I’ve often said, “When you’re well within, it shows on your skin,” but I’ve also found the opposite to be true - when you’re unwell it shows too. For me, feeling run down can result in rashes, hives, dryness, or dark circles.

 

During these times, I elect to heal naturally, choosing not to take antibiotics or pharmaceuticals. In my experience, sleep is the best healer and preventative. A 2015 study discovered that sleeping less than six hours per night made people almost five times more likely to get a cold compared to those who slept well for more than seven hours a night.

 

My system also responds favourably to vegetable juicing, using recipes from my friend Dr. Sara Siso, a holistic health practitioner, plant-based healer and raw food chef. I’ll juice for days when I’m run down, detoxing and fortifying my system from deep within. For the immune system, I love celery, cucumber, broccoli, romaine lettuce, lemon, lime, and ginger with our super greens, The Super Elixir™. Sometimes I might add a wheatgrass shot or two for extra effect.”
