This is One Strategy ‘Momager’ Kris Jenner Lives By
Arguably the most famous—or infamous—celebrity mom in Hollywood, Kris Jenner has been known to be the driving force behind her 6 children, their careers, and their businesses. This influence has even earned her the moniker, “momager”—or mom + manager.
Aside from starring in their reality series on E!, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, 64-year-old Kris also manages the careers of her children and helps out in their business ventures. She has been so successful that her youngest child, Kylie, is now the youngest self-made billionaire in the world, Kendall is now the world’s highest-paid model, and Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe are killing it in their massive endorsement deals, successful lifestyle brands, and thriving entertainment careers.
But how does the CEO of Jenner Communications balance all these on her plate and still look good? Well, she does have a strategy that she has lived by for decades: prioritizing her health.
In an Instagram video she did with Khloe’s denim brand, Good American, Kris talked about this advice and what she does to stay fit and healthy. She advised people to get enough sleep and take care of themselves. Jenner makes sure to work out, stay strong, and stretch in between meetings and filming. She revealed that she works better the stronger she feels.
Importance of Sleep
For people who have demanding jobs like Kris, sleep is a hot topic when it comes to health. The world’s richest people even urge people to get at least 7 hours of sleep a day. In a blog post, Microsoft founder Bill Gates said that people need 7 hours of slumber. As for the richest person in the world, Amazon head honcho Jeff Bezos, 8 hours of sleep can make one feel energized and excited.
Jenner, herself, tries to sleep around 6 to 7 hours every night. Although she has revealed that she only used to have 4 to 5-hour nightly shut-eyes, this has changed for her the older she got.
Short Daily Workouts
An early riser, Kris starts her day with a workout. She usually does Pilates or 45 minutes to an hour on the treadmill. After exercising, she then watches the news.
In a September interview with Poosh, Kourtney’s lifestyle brand, Jenner declared that she feels mentally, emotionally, and physically prepared to face the day after she finishes her daily cardio workout.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella also agrees on the benefits of cardio exercise. He typically spends 30 minutes in the morning hitting the treadmill and feels a huge difference during the day. Nadella has said in a LinkedIn podcast in December that he tries to keep this habit regardless of where he is or what time zone he is in.
This routine is backed by science. According to studies, exercising does well on your memory and problem-solving skills. It also helps you handle stress better. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America has said that doing aerobic exercises regularly can aid in easing tension, elevating and stabilizing the mood, improving sleep, and boosting self-esteem.
According to Mayo Clinic, squeezing in at least 30 minutes of exercise daily, 3-5 days a week, can improve the symptoms of depression or anxiety.
