Anna Wintour is the editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine and has been since 1988. She is also the chief content officer of the Condé Nast multimedia travel company. Wintour, a globally recognized fashion icon, has a morning ritual she swears by. She claims it helps her get started each morning with mental focus and physical energy.
She begins each day with a one-hour tennis match.
You don’t have to work in fashion or love tennis to learn something from this morning routine. Many studies show that engaging in brisk physical activity in the morning leads to more productivity and natural energy throughout the day.
A study conducted at the University of Bristol extols the benefit of daily exercise, no matter the time of day. It points to high energy levels and a more positive outlook as benefits of daily physical activity, as opposed to not exercising regularly.

Dancer and choreographer Twyla Tharp says her morning ritual boosts her creativity and holds her accountable for being productive throughout the day. She awakens each morning at 5:30 AM, dresses in her exercise gear, and catches a cab to her gym for a workout session.

What Can You Learn from the Ritualistic Morning Routines of These Successful People?
Habitual structure leads to productivity. Consistent and repeatable morning actions, whether exercising, expressing gratitude, or practicing mindfulness, have an almost magical way of delivering more energy, focus, and productivity.
These benefits extend throughout the day and even influence good sleeping patterns, a healthy diet, and a better outlook on life. Find your morning magic. Discover what works for you. Then, practice your ritual each morning before you start the day for more success in all of your endeavors.
