Ryan Seacrest is a new resident of New York City but isn’t new to a fast paced lifestyle. He recently came to New York from Los Angeles to co-host “Live” alongside Kelly Ripa. Besides his new gig on the morning show he produces hit shows like “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and “American Idol,” which gave him his start in show business. You might have heard his voice on your commute hosting his nationally syndicated radio show. Outside of show business he also has a clothing line and a skin care line. He also founded the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, a non-profit committed to inspiring today’s youth in entertainment and education. Needless to say, Seacrest has a lot of plates spinning.
How does he keep up according to nytimes.com? Like the rest of us, he is learning to balance work and personal life. He’s learned to be disciplined and structure his day in order to manage his impressive workload. Surprisingly, Seacrest’s morning starts in a pretty normal way. His alarm clock wakes him up bright and early, and he showers and shaves before treating himself to matcha tea and coffee. He has learned to feel comfortable with fitting in time for exercise, and boxing is his current go to fitness routine. Seacrest, the TV host and producer, catches up on the news before work and on his commute, taking a car to free up his time.
As per Forbes.com, his key to success, however, has been training himself to prioritize and organize his day. Like everyone else, Seacrest is human and only has so many hours in a day to fit everything in. Different times of the day are designated for different activities in order to keep from being ruled by immediate demands. For example, the afternoon is dedicated to long term projects. This also means scheduling in time for food, wine and socializing on the weekends. Sometimes being disciplined means taking time off from work. He sets aside time to put aside the phone in order to cut out distractions and rest and recoup when necessary.
