A Day in the body of Emi Kirschner- Holistic Health Coach Extraordinaire

Emi Krischner

I met Emi Kirschner much like many of the other “A Day in the body” ladies on here. I totally fb stalked her and sent her a message to see if she would be interested in contributing because let me tell ya… this girl has got some awesome stuff on her page. I really vibe with it and I think if you read this blog… You probably will too! So here is what she has to say about her day…..

Emi Kirschner: “Take care of your body, it’s the only place you have to live.” ~ Jim Rohn

 I don’t really have two days that are the same and with summer upon us, my kids and I are slightly less structured with our schedule which really means that there will be fewer times in the evening where we are all going in different directions. Hooray!! The times we do things change and usually by mid-August I’ve mastered the transition to the summer schedule.

6:30am is when I’m generally up and out of bed. My routine here is simple. Get up, trudge downstairs (I’m not a morning person – and possibly the slowest “waker – upper” ever),

drink water to start flushing my liver and make coffee.

I will pick up or put away whatever didn’t get done the night before. My kids are in high school and self-sufficient. I check in with them briefly.

By 8am – 8:30am: I’m showered and ready to start my day. Depending on the season, I have a green smoothie for breakfast and eggs or even leftovers from dinner.  I sip my green smoothie while I’m at my desk and complete my morning Journal entry in my app Five Minute Journal and organize my day in my Danielle LaPorte Day Planner. Her soul prompts clear my mind of all the chaos and help me focus on what it is that I really want to accomplish, what is my mission… outside of the tasks.

8:30am – 3:30pm: I’m working. Depending on the day, I’m meeting one-on-one with clients, writing, speaking, networking researching or meeting with my team. Mondays and Fridays tend to be my “administrative days” and Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursdays are when I have most of my client meetings and business events. Grouping activities together allows me to stay in the creative process when writing and be more productive.

Noonish – Lunch! Usually I have a salad and left overs. I love to add raw beets and fermented veggies on my salads and every day is a new combination of whatever is in the fridge. On perfect weather days, which is sunny and above 50 degrees, the dogs and I will go for a 20-minute walk to clear my head and get my body moving. On the days that we take a walk, I have a lot more energy throughout the afternoon.

After Lunch – 4:30pm: Working again. My afternoon looks pretty much like my morning.  I might be live on a webinar talking with parents about my French Fries to Foodies program for picky eaters.

During the school year my kids and I have “Connection Time” when they get home from school at about 3:15. It’s a quick 15 to 20-minute meeting we have to catch up with each other and learn about how their day is going so far. We review the evening activities and share what we are grateful for, what the funniest thing that has happened so far and, one thing they learned in one of their classes that surprised them.

4:30: I try to go to the gym 2 to 3 times a week. If I haven’t worked out first thing in the morning and going to the gym isn’t feasible because of the schedule, I’ll try to get 20 to 30-minutes in here.

Doing something – even for a few minutes is better than doing nothing.

5pm – 8pm: Errands, activities or completing a few work tasks. This is the busiest part of my day as most days we all have different commitments at different times. I cook most nights and make a menu on Sundays before grocery shopping. Again, depending on the day, I may have thrown something in the crockpot first thing in the morning, or had one of my kids’ pre-prep or I’m cooking in the evening. Regardless, 95% of the time I know what we are having for dinner when I get up in the morning.

We eat together most nights and get into the details of our day. Where we had successes and where we struggled. Mostly though, we are cracking joking to see who will spit their water out first from laughing. We typically have at least one night where we eat vegetarian. My new passion is making rice or noodle bowls. The options and flavor combinations are endless. Bangkok Coconut Curry Noodle Bowl is my go to when I don’t feel like cooking.

8pm: I’m back at my desk finishing up anything that I feel is left undone or catching up with emails and client notes. I’m working on creating the habit of writing my “Tomorrow List” in the evening while I can remember including what are the “hot 3 items” that I want to get done for the next day. Those 3 things go on a sticky note that is stuck on my computer – so I have to look at them.

10:00pm: I’m in bed and complete my day with filling out the evening portion of my Five Minute Journal and include what I’m grateful for. I’ll meditate for a few minutes and complete my day by reading. Right now I’m reading Managing Thought by Mary Lore which a client of mine recommended. If you want to know what some of my favorite books are, check out my suggested summer reading list.

Sleeping is vital for me to function and stay healthy. It’s rare that I don’t sleep for less than 7 hours. On the weekends I try to have one day where I can sleep about 9 hours. It’s like a total reset for me.

Does Emi Kirschner ‘s day just light up your life or what??? There was so many goodies I got from reading this I was floored. What were some of your favourites? Share with us in the comments or on one of my social media platforms in the right hand corner. Mine you ask?? I love love love that she does the Danielle Laporte day Planner. I am so enthralled by Danielle’s work lately it’s amazing. (In the interest of full disclosure… I did think she was overrated for a longgggg time… silly me… never judge a book by it’s cover. Then I got one of her books and the rest is HISTORY!.. I now desire map daily… Now that’s a convert if you ever did see)

If Emi Kirschner ‘s day just spoke to every bit of your soul (especially hello super mamma… Connection time? Yea that can change your whole perspective!) then check this girl’s soulful, invigorating and new twist on mindful child bringing uping (no I did not know the word for this lol.. rearing sounded too harsh)  by visiting her website, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages.
