These days, Doré is living and working in London, and we got a glimpse at some of her favorite rituals to help start her day. Keep scrolling to see how she takes care of herself from the inside out.
As soon as I wake up, I'll have coffee and water, but I don’t tend to eat right away. I have a big appetite except for in the morning!
Early mornings are mostly when I chat with my family. I am so happy to be in London and in similar time zones with them!
Then I'll write my diary, which I’ve done for many, many years. I used to do it on my phone, but lately, I’ve felt like writing on paper again.
After that, it’s time to walk my dog, Lulu! I live nearby a giant park in London, and it's become a crucial part of my health and wellness routines. I try to walk for at least an hour every day in the park. It's a great time to think, reset, and feel the passing of the seasons.
If I have a minute, I’ll go to Pophams Bakery and get this delicious yogurt bowl. After that, it’s writing time. I'll sit at my desk for a few hours and type away while still in my pj's and drinking coffee.
It took me forever after the pandemic to get back into a workout routine. Now, I love Pilates. I usually go to the 11 a.m. or 12 p.m. class at the studio that’s about a 20-minute walk from my home.
