Take Notes From the Morning Routines of These Three Successful Women


Everybody has a morning routine that kicks-off their day. Perhaps you wake up and set off the mobile alarms and check the notifications or emails. Some keep their mobiles aside and head to grab coffee or tea, while some may quickly get ready for an exercise session or meditation.

In a study conducted by the American Psychological Association, they found out that morning routine keeps stress and anxiety levels off and turns you energized for the rest of the day. Successful people too, follow a morning routine.

Let’s take a look at these three successful women’s morning routines to understand if their routines help them stay more productive.

Arianna Huffington

The entrepreneur and strength behind the publishing colossal Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington highly propagates the idea of 8 hours of sleep. After she gets the required sleep she wakes up in the morning to follow her Yoga practice for 30 minutes. She avoids any gadgets and keeps her smartphone away. As per studies, if your mornings are more focused and productive you will lead a day full of productivity and success. However, a relatively unfocused and unproductive morning routine can bring unproductive and mediocre day.

Sallie Krawcheck

The CEO and co-founder of Ellevest, Sallie Krawcheck begins her day early. She claims that she is more productive at 4 in the morning. She drinks her coffee while reflecting on the day that went by. She generates more space in her mind for new ideas for the day ahead. Knowing that her family is sound asleep upstairs while she works gives her content and she feels grateful. Mornings can be the best time to reflect on what happened and what you should do ahead. It is the best time to focus on resolving problems, consider future challenges and thoughts to optimize them.

Michelle Obama

The former first lady, Michelle Obama, prior to becoming the first African-American First lady of the USA was a lawyer. She carries on to be a spokesperson for different social causes. Michelle Obama picked up a healthy habit of exercising in the morning as soon as she wakes up. Exercise made her feel good about herself and hence was a confidence boost for her. Thus she was able to take up various projects with high energy. People who start their mornings with exercise are known to have more energy, a more positive outlook and it even enhances self-control.

Remember it is not possible and not recommended to copy anybody’s routine. The point is to learn something new and trying to incorporate that into your daily morning routine with a twist of something of your own taste.
