WHY DON’T YOU … ?
Elaine Daly shares her power-charged ideas
... DIVE. The deep blue sea will change the way you look at things. Escapism for me is diving off a Liveaboard in Raja Ampat. Just me and the marine life in the middle of the Banda sea – paradise found.
... PLAY HOOKY. Take a break from real life and learn something new at the same time. I’m thinking film school in New York or culinary school in Italy, depending on who returns my call first.
... JET-SET EAT. From Zurich to Texas, my 2012 was all about travel and collecting bright little jewels of experience. If you’re ever in Moscow, head to Nobu and make sure you try the jalapeno tuna carpaccio. Trust me, it is to die for! www.noburestaurants.com
... WORK IT. Refuse to start the day without a tough calorie-burning bootcamp workout. Pushing limits, I have finally realised that boundaries are all in the mind. Invest in a good personal trainer if you can. Of course, your clothes will fit you better, and the happy endorphins released are priceless!
... BE IN IT TO WIN IT. This is a very powerful life strategy in itself and something I try to instill in the young beauty queen hopefuls I mentor.
... GET JUICED. I began juicing it daily last year and haven’t looked back. Seriously, it will change your life; your skin clarity, hair health, and energy levels get amped up immediately. My all-time love is a refreshing, vitamin-rich banana, mango, and kale smoothie.

... DECLUTTER. January is the month I thoroughly clear my home of stuff because the state of your home reflects the state of your mind. Less mess is less stress.
... BE A DAREDEVIL. Pick something really mad you never thought you’d do. I’m getting a motorbike license. We only live once, right?
... CARPE DIEM. Since my days at law school this has been my credo. And you know what? It’s always worked out for me. Procrastination is a thief of time. Whatever it is you’re dreaming of, start today.
