How does Sunday start? I’m up between 4am and 5am. I go downstairs, feed the dog, make a coffee, and take my supplements. As a health nut, I always do something to set the tone for the day – meditation, breath work or gratitude lists.
Work or play? Ideally I’ll sit on my ass on the couch and remain there all day. Yes, I might cook waffles for breakfast, or treat myself to a facial, but otherwise I’m staying horizontal. Sundays are all about indulgence and doing everything I can’t when on the road all week.
Sundays growing up? When I was really young we’d go to church every week. But other than that, I don’t remember much, pre-music. Performing and travelling started when I was a little kid – mostly I was on a tour bus. Being home with the family still feels like a luxury.
A religious day still? My new album is called God’s Work, but I ran as far as I could from organised religion when I was young. It’s been a long path to find my own spirituality.
Sunday sounds? Ray LaMontagne or David Gray – soothing, chilled out listening. We have a record player in the living room and I let their albums run through. And it’s the perfect music to make soup to.
Do you work out? A jump on my trampoline or yoga if I need a boost. In my 20s and early 30s I worked out for vanity. Now in my 40s, I’m focused on hormones and brain health. I want to feel good, not look it.
And Sunday might? We eat dinner early, 5pm, and I’m in bed by 7pm. My marriage has one recurring argument: I want quiet and darkness, he likes to fall asleep with the TV on. So I put on my eye mask and cuddle up to him, waiting for the screen to be switched off.
