The Routine Successful Women Use For A Productive Day

Every successful girl boss has a killer routine that they stick to, day in, day out. A healthy routine and positive habits are essential in achieving your goals (because too many lazy days aren’t going to get you anywhere fast).

Does your daily routine need a make-over? Check out the habits of these successful girl bosses for a hearty dose of inspiration and go-getter attitude…

1. The don’t hit snooze

‘When I wake up, I don’t start the day by looking at my smartphone. Instead, once I’m awake, I take a minute to breathe deeply, be grateful and set my intention for the day’ – Arianna Huffington, Co-Founder of The Huffington Post

Create a positive morning routine that makes you want to jump out of bed, whether that’s starting your day with chocolate à la Blake Lively, or taking a leaf out of CNN Digital Correspondent Rachel Crane’s book and blasting your number one feel good song in the early AM. Remember, dreams are built when you’re awake.

2. They value their physical and mental health

‘Exercise wakes me up and gets my juices flowing. I get my best ideas working out or on a drive back from the gym to the house’ – Katherine Power, Co-Founder and CEO of Clique Media

Jennifer Aniston values her daily meditation ritual, while, every morning at 5:45 am, Anna Wintour heads to New York’s Midtown Tennis Club. Whereas, Fashion Designer Isabel Marant arrives at her local pool every morning for a set of 35 laps; ‘I need this to breathe and to handle my stressful days.’

3. They value taking time to recoup

‘My bedroom is my sanctuary…It’s like a refuge, and it’s where I do a fair amount of designing—at least conceptually if not literally.’ – Vera Wang, Fashion Designer

Gynethew Paltrow’s antidote to a full day is a pressure-point massage and a soothing bath. ‘I take an Epsom salt bath every night to wind down.’ While fashion designer Vera Wang’s secret to avoiding burnout is simple: she maintains a relaxing environment. Successful women know that they are the most important asset of their business, and self-love is essential to sustainable success.

4. They value quality sleep

‘Going to bed early is how grown-ups sleep in’ – Laura Vanderkam, Author of What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast

Sleep advocate Ariana Huffington ensures a successful sleep by maintaining that her bedroom is a screen-free zone. Her night time routine involves placing all electronics outside of the bedroom and opts for a book before dozing into a restful slumber.

    I definitely value quality sleep as I get older, some weekdays I work such long hours however that my mind is racing even when I am exhausted so sleep is not that forthcoming. I wish there was a switch to turn your brain off when it was bedtime! Sarah from Iheartcosmetics xx

  • I really shout not hit the snooze button tomorrow. Hahaha! :D
