10 Surprising Things All Boss Girls Do Before 10 A.M.

10 Surprising Things All Boss Girls Do

Before 10 A.M.

By 10 a.m your day is in full swing. You’re running around, conquering that to-do list and “busy” is pretty much the only word to describe your schedule. But every boss girl knows that a morning routine is crucial to making sure you have a productive day. Whether you’re looking to perfect your routine or learn some new tips for clearing out any negativity and kickstarting your day, here’s what all the boss girls are doing.

1. She stays away from social media.

It can be so easy to roll over in the morning, turn off your alarm and immediately open up Facebook – but don’t. Opening up social media apps will only take your focus away from what’s really important and leave you distracted by thinking about what’s going on in other people’s lives, instead of honing in on your own. Just skip it.

2. She keeps herself hydrated.

All boss girls know how important it is to get hydrated first thing in the morning. Keep a glass or bottle of water beside your bed and chug it right after that alarm goes off before you do anything else. Harvard Medical School instructs: “drinking fluids is crucial to staying healthy and maintaining the function of every system in your body, including your heart, brain, and muscles.” You can’t be your best self without it.

3. She plans her day.

Every boss girl knows that you must always have a plan. Running throughout your day flying by the seat of your pants is no way to do your job or run a business. Start each day with intention and bullet point what you know you need to accomplish. Having it written out makes it tangible and there is something so gratifying about crossing tasks off as you finish them.  

4. She gives herself a pep talk.

The only person you need to believe in what you’re doing is you, so starting your day with a quick pep talk will help you start your day knowing exactly why you’re putting your efforts where you are. No pom-poms needed.

5. She stays informed.

Boss girls stay off social media first thing in the morning, but they most certainly stay up to date with what’s happening in the world. If you don’t have time, do a quick skim about what’s happening in your industry and nationally, but make sure that you’re informed and never miss a beat.

6. She gets moving.

Not only does exercise keep you healthy and in shape, but it’s an instant mood booster and increases your energy. You don’t need to get to a fitness class or hit the gym every single morning, but making time in your routine to take a short walk or even do 15 minutes of yoga helps to center you and makes all the difference in your day.

7. She does something to make her happy.

Whether it’s something as simple as trying a new drink from Starbucks, meditating or even buying a pair of killer shoes you’ve been lusting over online – get up and do something . Anything that makes you smile so that your day starts with putting positive energy out into the world. Putting happiness out means that you will attract it back to you.

8. She doesn’t skip breakfast.

It’s the most important meal of the day and every boss girl knows the importance of nutrition in having energy to conquer the world. So get up, and get something into your stomach that will fuel you throughout your busy day.  

9. She shows some love.

Whether you have someone lying next to you to give a big smooch to first thing in the morning or you pick up the phone to send some love in a special someone’s direction – do it! When you show love, oxytocin is released; Mind Body Green suggests that benefits can include increased self-esteem, a strengthened immune system and an elevated mood. 

10. She gets dressed in a killer outfit…that she picked out the night before.

The phrase “dress for the job you want” couldn’t be more true. There is nothing like the confidence that you exude when you’re wearing a dazzling outfit. On the flip side, waking up in the morning and having no idea what you’re going to wear and scrambling at the last minute can throw your entire day off. Do yourself a favor and have your outfit planned the night before – it will make your whole morning flow more seamlessly.

  1. I love this and need more of it. being a boss lady isn’t easy at all.Especially the point were you said “staying away from social media” is not easy for most ladies.

  2. Fabulous advice for boss girls! I’d like to add:

    1) Set one or two times (later in the day) to check and respond to email. NEVER ever first thing in the morning.

    2) Work that killer outfit, a dash of intoxicating perfume and style your hair, even if you work from a home office. It elevates your energy, productivity and mood.

    Much love to all boss girls!

  3. nice tips….after reading i even started to planing to put few things mentioned in the article in my life….thank u…

  4. How about become a boss who happens to be female? Why is it girl instead of women or female?

    If someone is doing things that make a women-owned business successful, why shouldn’t male bosses do it too?

    If there are things you can do that successful male bosses do, why shouldn’t a female owner do them too?

    This girl/man narrative is counterproductive.

  5. Well this is the best thing in my life.
    when i went through it, i found my self in tears..

    much love from tina

  6. this is exactly what i need, when i read this article i discovered everything mentioned here is all that’s dragging me down especially social media i spend a lot of time and that’s what i started by staying away from it and focus on my life….

  7. Wow! i think all boss girls are quite different with all aspects of management but these tips ‘great help” and “inspiring”

  8. The Only thing negative/counterproductive on here Paul is you!! I am male, yet I still got heaps out of this read. Regardless of sex, we can all improve our day from this type of advice and also by removing people like you from our lives.

  9. I love this article. May i also add that boss ladies usually go to bed early. “Early to bed and Early to rise” they say.It’s important to get your 8 hours of sleep, in order to rest, recover and re-energize yourself, so you can really slay your day. Thanks and much love to all the boss ladies out there!
