Miranda Kerr: Wellness Empire
We kick-off our Ultimate Wellness Guide series with a close look at thé Miranda Kerr Wellness Routine.
For Miranda Kerr wellness is the holy grail to happy and successful living. We can all learn a thing or two from her in this area. She is a supermodel, businesswoman, mother and wellness expert. Miranda Kerr is one of the lucky supermodels whose career didn’t stop there. Although, lucky is not the right formulation. She is one of the supermodels that saw an opportunity beyond her already hyper-successful career and went all the way to develop her business towards her own powerful and independent brand.
The first generation of model powerhouses who broke the boundaries and generated a personal brand were ‘the supers’ in the 90s. Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Kate Moss all became household names based on identity instead of solely appearance. What makes today’s model turned businesswoman like Miranda Kerr different, is their power for owned media platforms. They do not longer rely on magazines and media companies to tell their story. Instead, they craft their own platforms and businesses and choose to work with magazines and media companies when it fits their strategy.
Self Love Message
Behind Miranda Kerr’s brand lies more than her modeling experience and some backstage make-up tips. She does not only preach about a healthy lifestyle, she actually is a living embodiment of the self-love regimen. The interesting thing about her approach is that it is not just a means to an end – she is not taking care of herself just to look good. It is mostly about having a healthy mind and feeling good because of that. In a world with too much screen time and too little me time, isn’t that just what we need? Having pride in taking care of yourself while not being afraid to goof around with crystals and make a little bit of fun of yourself while doing it.
The Diet and Wellness Routine
So, what are the key elements of our wellness guru’s regimen? The first element to maintain a healthy mind is spiritual healing. Miranda Kerr practices yoga, meditation, daily affirmations and believes in the power of crystals. She also implements this in her skincare routine – we didn’t expect anything less from a serious skincare enthusiast.
“This oil was created for me by my aromatherapist. When I was going trough a challenging time in my life, it really helped transform that negativity. I carry it with me all the time now in my handbag.”
1. Yoga & Meditation
Miranda told Elle Magazine that after she split from Orlando Bloom, she fell into a deep depression. Although she naturally is a very happy person, it became clear to her how every thought you have determines your reality. Yoga and meditation are tools to control your mind and get in touch with your spirit. ‘All the answers are deep inside of you’, Miranda explains.
This belief seems to be the core of the Miranda Kerr Wellness regime: you are what you believe. The same thought is behind a special aromatherapy oil and healing crystals: If you believe it is good for you, it actually does something good for you.
2. Clean Eating
Although the term ‘Clean Eating’ can have negative connotations to some, it is actually just the right attitude to your diet when approached in a healthy way. Just make sure you don’t go overboard and forbid yourself certain foods because that only leads to stress, which is the last thing you want when it comes to health and happiness (those seem to go hand in hand).
Miranda Kerr also goes for a healthy balance: She lives by the 80/20 rule when it comes to her diet. Is it 80% healthy and clean, that means unprocessed and fresh foods. That leaves room for 20% things you crave and want to indulge yourself in.
For some extra healthy inspiration to insert right into your life and fridge: Here are Miranda Kerr’s favorite diet and wellness foods:

4. Have Fun!
Last but not least: don’t take yourself too seriously. Have lots of fun, laugh, joke and make mistakes. You are not here to be perfect, just have fun and be the best you that you can be. And that you is not the stressed, insecure you that is afraid to be anything less than perfect. That is the you who follows her own rules and enjoys her life. Being a little crazy sometimes is healthy an freeing! That might be the most important thing to take away from the Miranda Kerr Wellness guide.
