It’s not always easy to wake up early and get your routine started, but it’s 2016. New year, new habits. If you’re the type of betch who rolls out of bed, brushes her teeth with her eyes closed and grabs some leftover pizza for the road, you might want to consider changing up your AM routine. I mean, do you really think Anna Wintour hits snooze five times before getting in her Uber? Let’s take a look at the morning habits of five successful women, so we can be just as successful as we are betchy this year.
Do you refuse to function before your noon iced coffee? Well, when Isa Adney isn?t busy writing her next book or getting ready to be on camera, she?s waking up at 5:05 AM to make breakfast. Yup. This betch has been featured on Forbes, The Huffington Post, NPR, LA Weekly, and has even been named one of the ?Top 100 People Moving the World Forward? by GOOD Magazine. What?s her secret? An early-morning earl grey tea and a sunny-side egg over sautéed kale. Adney eats breakfast every morning before the sunrise, and usually reads an inspiring book or catches up on the news while enjoying her meal.
Before Stacey Bendet makes breakfast for her kids at 6AM, she?s up practicing Ashtanga Yoga. Studies have proven that practicing an hour of Ashtanga Yoga can help you find calmness and order throughout your whole day, and with a busy schedule like Bendet has, she probably needs the extra bit of zen.
So, if you?re looking to actually put your Lulu yoga pants to good use, try out some sunrise yoga to set yourself up for a successful day. Can?t guarantee you?ll make it out that night, but you?ll live.
This betch has created the costumes for some of our favorite comedies, like Bridesmaids, 22 Jump Street, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and Trainwreck. But what?s her secret to getting her creative juices flowing? Reconnecting.
Every night, Leesa shuts off her phone and doesn?t turn it back on until the next morning, after she?s had a relaxing bath. She then sits down with her husband for a cup of coffee and opens her e-mail for the first time since the evening before. And we were proud of ourselves for doing a social media cleanse that lasted like six hours.
It?s no surprise that the founder of our favorite fitness class-booking app starts her day by breaking a sweat. Before grabbing her citrus green tea from Starbucks, Kadakia either goes on a run or does a ten-minute core workout in her bedroom, where she has a yoga mat and weights laid out.
Working out in the morning gives you a boost for your entire day ahead, and plus, by getting it out of the way, you can hit up happy hour after work without worrying about running to the gym.
Danielle Snyder has appeared on Forbes? ?30 Under 30? list more than once, so this successful betch is obviously doing something right. Every morning, after making herself a hot coffee with almond milk, Danielle Snyder slips on her boxing gloves and heads over to her gym in Tribeca for a boxing session. Sweating off any rage or tension can set you up for a successful day, so it?s worth a shot. She then goes over to her sister?s apartment for a healthy breakfast before she heads to work?this betch puts our morning routines to shame.
