Emma Watson is the ultimate woman, using her fame to highlight issues that are important to her, focusing on empowering others, and trying her best to stay educated and on top of the issues that matter. While we all loved her for her portrayal of Hermione in Harry Potter, it seems like she’s grown up into a full-on Hermione in the flesh. Emma is notoriously private with some things, usually posting on Instagram only to highlight issues and talk about things that matter to her. She works hard, and she tries to make a difference, acknowledging her privileges and empowering women to do more.
A day in the life of Emma Watson surely involves a lot of planning, fun, and thinking about the issues that matter to her.
We planned our day like Emma Watson might in the Getting Stuff Done planner, and it’s all about learning, being your best self, and doing the things that matter to you. Want to live a day in the life of Emma Watson? Here’s how…
Emma’s daily routine starts at different times depending on what she’s up to, of course. But her morning routine always includes a good breakfast, “It’s my special thing, I make guacamole, salsa, and scrambled eggs, and then I cook the tortilla. It’s pretty simple, really, but yummy.” she told Marie Claire. She tries to eat a protein and fat filled breakfast first thing, which will fuel her day and help her tackle whatever is coming her way. She tends to stick to a diet full of lean protein, whole grains, and unsaturated fats but will allow herself a treat every now and then.
Emma’s workout regime is similarly laid back, she loves fast and effective workouts that combine a mental workout with a physical one. She regularly boxes, and tries other classes to develop her fitness skills, but her trainer Emily Drew makes sure her thirty-minute workouts are the perfect balance of stretching, strength, and stillness. She does postural correction stretches, stretching out her hip flexors and quads to make working out easier, then there are two circuits of leg and cardio workouts, and abs. After that. it’s all about reducing the stress hormones and bringing your body back, this includes stillness, stretching, and meditation. Emma ends each workout with a positive affirmation.
HEAD TO WORK
There’s no such thing as an average day for someone like Emma, whether it’s zipping around for shoots, magazine interviews, or rehearsals, lending her voice or face to another good cause, or simply speaking on a panel. Most days are busy, and days off don’t always happen on the weekend. And Emma has to be extremely careful about being spotted, she tends to travel to locations in secret and even bought her house via Skype. She told the Telegraph, “For me, it’s the difference between being able to have a life and not. If someone takes a photograph of me and posts it, within two seconds they’ve created a marker of exactly where I am within 10 meters. They can see what I’m wearing and who I’m with. I just can’t give that tracking data,”
She is one of the richest women under thirty in the UK but has been very open about how what’s most important to her is that she uses this opportunity to highlight and make changes. From the open letter, she penned to a woman who died after being denied an abortion, to the various campaigns she stands for. Emma’s best work is in giving a voice to the voiceless and highlighting issues that are important.
DO SOMETHING JUST FOR YOU
Emma is often out and about in the evenings and has spoken about her love of the app Petcube, which allows her to interact with her pets when she’s away (she’s admitted being away so much makes her feel guilty). But when she’s at home, she told The Coveteur that she likes to make the most of her evenings and binge watch one particular show, “This is going to make me seem very uncool, but Friends! It blows my American friends’ minds, but in the UK, Friends still plays. There’s one channel that it’s on basically all the time, and I will watch Friends reruns forever. My friends are like, ‘Why are you doing this?’ It’s one of those comforting things to have in the background that just kind of makes you feel like everything’s going to be okay.”
If she’s not at home, relaxing, you will see photos of Emma at events, or hanging out with her favorite people. She describes herself as sillier than most people think, and has a love of pasta, so will often go out for dinner. Despite being nervous about being spotted, she tries to be careful and often turns down fan photos to protect her location.
It’s no secret that Emma loves reading. She even hides books around the London underground, sometimes. In her book club, Emma shared her opinions on her favorite books in her book club, “”As Iran enters another important period of change, with relations re-opening with much of the world, I think this is a particularly good time to pick up Persepolis, Satrapi’s deceptively simple, almost whimsical drawings belie the seriousness and rich complexity of her story–but it’s also very funny too.” Emma said, of the book Persepolis, which you may have seen in comic format doing the rounds on the internet. While she’s a voracious reader, Emma is also a lover of a good bath to wind down the day.
I have a bath every single day of my life. And if I can have two or three—amazing. Nothing terrible is going to happen in the bath, so I always find time for that. I’ll take phone conversations in the bath, anything.” she told Into The Gloss. She uses Epson salts and oils, Lola’s Apothecary milk bath, and French Girl Organics Sea Polish. After that, she’ll cleanse her face. “No matter what, I always wash my face at night. I could get back from a shoot at 4 AM and still cleanse, tone, and moisturize before going to bed. People are amazed by this, but it’s just one of those self-care practices that I really enjoy.” she said.
