10 Breakfast Routines Of Successful Women

Does your morning start with hitting the snooze button at least three times, pulling something on that is hopefully clean and not too creased, shoveling down a bowl of cereal before arriving tired and unmotivated to work?

Take inspiration from some successful women including Anna Wintour, Margaret Thatcher, Sheryl Sandberg and Arianna Huffington by incorporating a few of these tips into your morning routine.

Victoria Beckham: Routine: Me Time

“So that half an hour in the morning while I’m getting ready, between showering and washing my face, I’m checking e-mails that have come in overnight, from America.” She told Harper’s Bazaar. Before waking up her children she spends some time indulging in her skincare routine, and enjoying the time to herself.



Payal Kadakia CEO + Founder of ClassPass: Routine: Workout

Payal told Refinery29 that she regularly starts her day with a workout. Before she has a chance to let the day get the best of her, she goes for a 30-minute run or does a 10-minute core workout. You can easily do the core workout at home before you leave.



Isabel Marant: Routine: Tea and swimming

Isabel told Harper’s Bazaar, “The first thing I do is boil water for my tea. Right now I’m having chai with rice milk. Sometimes I’m into coffee, but my tastes are changing; I’m not very loyal.” On weekends, she drives to the pool and does 35 lengths. This is the ultimate tech-free morning. I love this one.



Anna Wintour: Routine: Early morning tennis

Everybody knows Anna wakes up to play tennis at 5:45 every day as she’s a creature of habit. She also gets a blowout every day.


Arianna Huffington: Routine: Meditation

When Arianna wakes up, she stays far away from her smartphone and instead tries to meditate. She told Soul Cycle, “I take a minute to breathe deeply, be grateful, and set my intention for the day.”

So which successful woman are you going to be this morning?
