8 Ways to Copy Meghan Markle’s Wellness Routine
Meghan Markle was the star of Suits long before she was a future princess, but she also gave fellow actress-turned-wellness-guru Gwyneth Paltrow a run for her yoni eggs money via her lifestyle blog The Tig (RIP). From drinking green juice for breakfast to sweating it out with Pilates, Markle incorporates wellness into her daily routine as seamlessly as she slipped into her role as a royal. Here, eight ways Markle loves to get woo-woo with it.

Do Yoga for Your Body and Mind
Practicing yoga has been a part of Markle’s life since she was a child, thanks to her yoga teacher mom, Doria Ragland. As the future royal told Women’s Health UK, “That practice is in my blood.”
Markle also praised her preferred exercise method in an interview with Best Health Magazine, saying, “There are so many benefits that come with the practice of yoga... increased flexibility and muscle strength, greater happiness, increased mental focus, a greater ability to relax, decreased anxiety and better sleep.”
Eat Clean Monday Through Friday (and Indulge on the Weekend)
A self-proclaimed foodie, Markle doesn’t believe that eating clean has to be a stringent practice. The royal-to-be has said, “I try to eat vegan during the week and then have a little bit more flexibility with what I dig into on the weekends. But at the same time, it’s all about balance. Because I work out the way I do, I don’t ever want to feel deprived. I feel that the second you do that is when you start to binge on things. It’s not a diet; it’s lifestyle eating.” Here, here, Meg.
Swap Coffee for Green Juice
Coffee zealots, look away. Markle told Shape Magazine she prefers a leafy green juice first thing in the morning instead of a cup of joe: “I think trying to go for coffee or things like that only end up hurting you in the end, so [I like] to get a really good natural source of energy like a great green juice. Something that just gets right into your system is a nice pick-me-up.”
Use Running as a Form of Moving Meditation
Meghan also told the mag running is one of her go-to ways to combat stress and get a good sweat in. “You have to find a workout routine that really speaks to you beyond trying to get goals for your body. So for me, running, I need it as much like for my head and clearing my head as I do for keeping in shape,” she said. Maybe she and K-Middy will become jogging buddies post-baby number three?
Build Long, Lean Muscles with Pilates
In addition to yoga and running, Markle reportedly enjoys a good Megaformer Pilates session—which is similar to regular Pilates but uses a more intense reformer. When in L.A. she often visits Pilates Platinum, which is owned by her friend Heather Dorak.
Sweat Out Toxins in an Infrared Sauna
The princess-in-training told The Chalkboard Mag that she likes to “sit in an infrared sauna and sweat out all the toxins” once a week. Wondering what the hell an infrared sauna is? Welp, it's a sauna that heats you from within, detoxing your body, repairing your muscles and even (maybe) helping you lose weight. Hmmm...color us intrigued.
Load Up on Supplements
She also told the publication that she uses magnesium, B12 drops, multivitamins and a cortisol manager before bed. “Sometimes ashwagandha makes it into the mix too!” *Adds every item to Amazon cart immediately*
Find Your Own Mantra
Markle wrote on her now defunct blog that her mantra is “I am enough.” She claims a casting director told her this during an audition once and it stuck with her ever since.
Alright, people. We have all the tools to get that Meghan Markle glow. Now if only we could snag a prince of our own...
