Grace Beverley wellness tips | The entrepreneur shares her self-care essentials

Grace Beverley is a force to be reckoned with. The ultimate multi-hyphenate woman – at age 27, she’s founded not one, but three successful businesses, including; the eco-conscious activewear brand TALA, the fitness app Shreddy and a line of daily planners, which she sells through The Productivity Method.

Those of you who followed Grace from the beginning will remember how she started out as a fitness influencer, posting workout videos from her Oxford University bedroom under the name Grace Fit. Now, she’s a published author of the Sunday Times bestseller, Working Hard, Hardly Working and hosts a podcast under the same name – where she chats with high-profile trailblazers like Dr Rangan Chatterjee, Laura Jackson, Caroline Hirons, and most-recently, Emily English.

So, who better to ask about all things health and wellness? From the importance of planning to taking a daily greens supplement and how she tracks her sleep, here are her top tips for staying well…

I’m all about making my morning routine as quick as possible, so I usually wake up around 7am, grab a coffee and start getting ready straight away.

I’ve got my speedy hair and makeup routine down to a fine art over the years so I’m genuinely out of bed, out of the house and on my way to the office in half an hour.

My relationship with exercise has changed a huge amount over the years. Back in my uni days, I was all about lifting, sculpting and shredding, which, if I’m honest, revolved a lot around how I looked, rather than how I felt.

This year I had a big realisation and concluded that I needed to prioritise regular daily movement, and I’ve been loving it. I started our Shreddy70 challenge on January 1st which involved a mix of Pilates, yoga, walks, strength training and HIIT. I even went on weekly runs for the first time in my life. It was so freeing to explore new avenues of exercise after years of being a gym girlie.

I’m not a huge breakfast person in the week, but at the weekends my go-to has been the same for over a decade now: creamy mushrooms on toast.

My fiancé uses the Oatly cream to make it for us every weekend and it’s definitely one of the reasons I’m marrying him! It’s just the ultimate weekend breakfast and it feels like such a treat without spiking my blood sugar too much.

I’ve been on a real journey with my skin over the last few years. I developed PCOS-induced acne in 2020 and I tried everything to get rid of it. My saving grace was my Skin&Me daily doser, which is a personalised formula that they develop for you. I genuinely tried products ten times the price, and Skin&Me was the only thing that made a visible difference. Other than my daily doser, I keep it pretty simple with Caroline Hirons’ Skin Rocks moisturiser and the Ultra Violette Supreme Screen SPF.

I also recently bought one of the CurrentBody red-light masks which I wear when I’m watching TV in the evenings because I’m nothing if not a multi-tasker.

My go-to coffee order is an iced oat latte. Although I’m trying to cut down and now have a strict ‘no coffee after 12pm’ rule that I make the team hold me accountable to when I don’t have the willpower.

I used to take a whole load of supplements but I got fed up with spending so much each month and taking so many pills. That’s why I turned to the Shreddy team with the idea of developing a greens powder that did the job of all my supplements in one. I remember in that first meeting we thought it might not be possible, but a year (and 30 samples) later one glass of Shreddy Supergreens contains 100% NRV of my daily vitamins, pre & pro-biotics and all the vitamins and minerals I was already taking for hair and skin growth. As someone who’s all about efficiency, it’s my dream multi-tasking supplement. I drink it in the afternoon instead of my coffee and it really helps me avoid that mid-afternoon crash I always used to get.

I wear an Oura ring to track my sleep, so I know how far to push myself on a particular day as my schedule is usually pretty back-to-back. It usually knows when I’m getting run down before I do.

I try my absolute best to get 8 hours of sleep a night, after years of trying to push it, I now know that 8 hours is what I need to be good at my job and maintain my schedule across a week. When heading to bed, I make sure to read at least 10 pages of a fiction book. I find it really helps me to separate my brain from work mode and improves the quality of my sleep as a whole.

I don’t journal, but I do plan, which I actually think is the most important part of my wellness routine. I truly believe that organisation is self-care. If you’re stressed because your schedule and priorities are a mess, goal setting and time blocking is going to help a lot more than a pamper evening (even though I do love a pamper).

Every week I go to the page in my Productivity Method planner and evaluate my personal and professional goals, whether I achieved them, and whether they were realistic, and then I set out my goals for the upcoming week, making sure they align with the time I have blocked in my schedule to do those specific tasks. It only takes me 15 minutes and it’s the most calm-inducing practice of my week.
