We need not recount the many quotes about successful mornings turning your days into gold — from Benjamin Franklin to Bob Dylan, the importance of mornings has long been known. Yet, what about those of us who are just a little addicted to that snooze button?
If you’re not a morning person, one way you can coax yourself out of bed is with a reliable morning routine that you actually like. Take your queue from these celebrities that have realistic morning routines.
Leave it to Posh Spice to outdo us all from morning till night. Victoria Beckham starts her day predictably celebrity-esque — that’s right, a green smoothie. If that’s not your style, you can still steal her easier step; she swears by two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar every morning.
If you were expecting a lavish and unattainable morning routine from one of the wealthiest and most famous celebrities around, you’ve got Oprah all wrong. Her morning routine is characteristically humble. She wakes up when her dogs need to go outside, makes her cappuccino, and heads to her home gym for a light workout. Okay, a home gym might be the unrealistic part.
Another easy morning routine to adopt, Jennifer Aniston starts her days with a cup of hot water and lemon followed by 20 minutes of meditation. She’s also another celebrity that swears by a good morning workout.
Something that we can all appreciate is music, and many celebrities include it as part of their morning routines. Priyanka Chopra Jonas is just another celeb that joins Brittany Snow in appreciating good morning music. Making yourself a pumped-up playlist to start your day off is relatable and realistic (we also love that it doesn’t involve 6 AM workouts).
For Lea Michele, it’s all about that morning shower. She makes time to take a steam shower every single day, no matter how busy she is, so that tells you there must be some serious benefits to this seemingly simple morning routine. She also exfoliates twice in the shower — first with an exfoliating brush and then with a shower scrub. Compared to downing two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in the morning, we’ll happily double up on our scrubbing instead.
