21. Christie embraces her morning rituals.
According to Christie Brinkley, she leaps out of bed each morning, goes downstairs to her kitchen, and makes herself a big cup of coffee. In fact, she can drink up to five cups a day! Christie embraces the caffeinated lifestyle. She even has tried her hand out at cappuccino art for her Instagram – you can see it if you check out the hashtag #christiecappucino. She’ll sip on a cup of coffee while drawing on another – she’s quite the multitasker! After her coffee, she’ll also make herself a big cup of hot water and squeeze some lemons into it. If she’s feeling extra spicy, she’ll add a dash of cayenne into the concoction.
We are looking forward to a ritual like that each morning, which can make waking up easier! It’s essential to establish a healthy morning ritual, as it sets the tone for the rest of your day. It also helps you focus your mind and eliminate the stress that rushing can cause. We need to control our schedule rather than feel like our plans control us. Following an intentional, thoughtful morning routine that works for us is an excellent way to prioritize and increase our overall productivity. Some everyday morning habits among many successful people are waking up early, exercising, reading, or meditating.
