9 Daily Routines of Successful Women

It’s crucial to consider what goes into a successful woman’s daily routine. Everyone has their own definition of success. Whatever definition you use, powerful, healthy, and successful women all have a need for habits and routines that help them achieve their goals.

Why Habits and Daily Routines are Important

Everyone appears to be aware that healthy habits are beneficial to one’s well-being. But why is it so vital to have habits? Why do some of the world’s most successful women devote time to certain daily rituals?

Habits are essentially the activities that we repeat in a predictable sequence. They are neither good nor bad essentially. A good habit or a bad habit is determined by the activities that make up our habits. Drinking three energy drinks first thing in the morning, for example, is a bad idea. It becomes an unhealthy habit if you do it every morning. And the consequences of an unhealthy habit will eventually catch up with you, whether it’s weight gain, health problems, stress, or anxiety.

Habit development is a part of our personal development. As a result, habits and everyday routines play a crucial role in how we operate in our daily lives. And, in the end, these insignificant actions play a role in determining whether or not we will be successful women.

9 daily routines of a successful woman

A positive mindset guides a successful woman’s daily activities. And it’s based on the idea that we need to look after ourselves in order to succeed and reach our goals.

Whether you’re a mom, a freelancer, a caregiver, or a student… routines are necessary no matter how you describe your everyday life. And some of the successful women’s daily routines that contribute to the formation of excellent habits may be something you’re already doing. Others may be items to incorporate into your regular routine.

Positive affirmations 

This may not be the first thing that comes to mind when considering a successful woman’s daily routine. It is, however, unquestionably one of the most revolutionary. Positive affirmations can help us rewrite our negative inner monologue throughout the day. Gratitude journals are one of the most effective strategies to cultivate a good mindset.

Meditation is another option. It does not take long to meditate for ten minutes or twenty minutes in the morning. Keep your attention on the present moment. Also, to let go of negativity, recite happy affirmations. This simple action has the potential to completely transform your day.

Eating Healthy

What we put into our bodies has an impact on how we feel, our productivity, and our long-term health. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all essential. However, it is also critical to provide our bodies with meals that provide energy and nourishment.

One great way to make sure you’re eating healthy is to keep track of your intake in a food journal.

A single cup of morning coffee in the morning, green juice for a mid-morning snack, plant-based proteins like peanut butter, dairy alternatives like almond milk, and other nut milks. These are just a few foods with proven health benefits that you could add to your daily routine in order to eat healthy. 

Getting Quality Sleep 

If you’re someone that’s always considered yourself a night owl, that’s not necessarily a good thing. Current research shows adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep every night before the alarm clock goes off in the morning.

Getting a good night’s sleep can help:

  • Reduce anxiety
  • Reduce stress
  • Reduce weight gain
  • Increase productivity

So, are you getting good sleep? Are you getting enough sleep (ideally to eight hours every night)? 

Reducing Chaos and Clutter

With the rise of the Marie Kondo movement, minimalism and decluttering are popular right now. But there’s a reason why. In a recent Psychology Today post, Alice Boyes Ph.D. outlines the reasons why decluttering is good for our mental health.

decluttering-and-reducing-chaos-daily-routine

We gain a sense of self-efficacy by minimizing the chaos and clutter in our spaces. It also aids in our organization. It’s simple to see why this is such an important component of successful women’s daily routine. And just as vital as to-do lists and day-to-day preparation.

Practicing Self-Care

Whether you plan a spa day, massage, pedicure, nap, phone a friend or loved one, bake cookies, or simply go outside, there is something for everyone. It’s critical to schedule self-care in your everyday life, whatever that looks like for you. In order to keep achieving great things, successful and powerful women must take care of themselves.

Self-care does not always have to do with our physical bodies. It’s also about deciding what’s most important for our mental well-being. Take some time to consider what you need to do each day to properly care for yourself. Then schedule it in and make sure your mental health is taken care of. Mental health is equally as important as physical health.

Exercise

Another key ingredient to overall health and wellness is exercise. A recently published study and Healthy Living Guide for 2020/2021 showed individuals who exercise, eat healthily, keep healthy body weight, reduce alcohol intake, and do not smoke, lived more than a decade longer than other participants.

Exercise is one of the five activities that should be done every day. It should also be a part of a successful woman’s everyday routine. Even if it’s only for 20 or 30 minutes a day, exercise is an excellent method to get your blood pumping and prioritize your physical health. It can also aid in hormone regulation and energy production.

Maintaining Work-Life Balance 

A lot of the ways we define our success is through our work. But work can take over. Maintaining a good work-life balance is a key part of the daily routine of a successful woman.

This entails not allowing your work to interfere with your personal life. It also involves not allowing others at work to influence or guilt you into completing work that you would rather be doing for yourself.

  • Arrive and leave work at a consistent time every day (barring emergencies or unique circumstances) 
  • Take breaks throughout the day to stretch, hydrate, and go for short walks
  • Set manageable expectations with your boss about after-hours availability
  • Shut off emails and all other work communication at a certain time each night
  • End the workweek on Friday so that you don’t work on the weekend

Setting appropriate work boundaries can be done in a variety of ways. It can be difficult, but it is an essential component of a long-term business career.

Have a Hobby

If you don’t already have one, there are numerous ways that hobbies can help us. They’re a terrific method for us to learn new things and do something mentally challenging outside of work. It’s not just about advancing our professions. Furthermore, hobbies can assist us in continuing to learn, exploring new ideas, and developing our interests and personalities in a healthy manner.

Being successful is a multi-faceted process. This is why many successful women schedule time for hobbies and other life-enhancing extracurricular activities in their daily schedules. Even 15 minutes a day, five days a week, adds up to a significant amount of time spent on something that both challenges and delights you..

Silk+Sonder has compiled a hobby list for women in their 20’s and a hobby list for women in their 30’s. Check out some of the ideas we came up with!

Reduce Social Media Time

Our gadgets have a tendency to overpower us. We pause what we’re doing to check every buzz and notification. Our phones and laptops have instilled in us a sense of urgency. And we work at a hyper-awareness that is neither sustainable nor healthy. The relationships we have with our phones can even be characteristic of addiction.

reducing-social-media-daily-routine

We can cut down on how much time we spend on our smartphones by limiting how much time we spend on social media. One way we waste time is by scrolling through social media for hours on end. And it is absolutely not a part of a successful woman’s everyday routine.

Example morning daily routine of a successful woman

6:30 am Alarm goes off, do not hit snooze

6:35 am Stretch and meditate

6:45 am Morning workout

7:30 am Breakfast

8:00 am Get ready for the day

9:00 am Begin work

Example evening daily routine of a successful woman 

6:00 pm End work

6:30 pm Yoga and mindfulness 

7:00 pm Dinner

7:30 pm Hobby or social time

9:00 pm Relax (read, bath, hot tea)
