A day in the busy life of Shakira balances exercise and a healthy diet with a focus on self-care and mental well-being.
Here's an insight into the daily routine that has played a pivotal in her success.
- Shakira starts her day early with a shower, a healthy breakfast, and a green smoothie.
- She works out six days a week, with every day being different.
- It's a balancing act between producing new music videos, releasing new music, charitable work, and being a mother.
- Shakira takes Sunday off to rest and recover ahead of the upcoming week.
Shakira starts her day early, waking up at 7:00 a.m. After getting up, she takes a shower and brushes her teeth to start the day feeling refreshed and ready to go.
Her phone stays off until after her morning routine to ensure her focus and a balanced mental state.
At 8:00 a.m., Shakira has breakfast of "eggs or avocado with olive oil, tomato, and sea salt, followed by a smoothie with berries, plant protein, and greens."
Shakira's trainer and close friend Anna Kaiser tells us on BodyrockTV.com, "She works out six days a week, and every day is different." Her trainer explains, "She's producing new music videos, releasing new music, and still very involved with her Colombian charitable schools." Kaiser also says, "There are simply too many things going on at the same time. She's also a mother with children who she wants to spend time with. There are simply insufficient hours in the day. As a result, we must refocus. Find strategies to refocus, realign, and strive to be present."
The Colombian songstress takes a break for lunch of fish and fresh veggies or a colorful salad with her family at 2:00 p.m. Lunch is frequently cold, and dinner is usually warm.
If that routine becomes too monotonous, they'll switch to pork chops, a favorite of Shakira's. "Pork chops aren't my favorite dish, but she enjoys them," Kaiser explained. "There will be dark chocolate on occasion, like a truly pure dark chocolate with little to no sugar."
If she isn't performing at night, Shakira returns home around 8:00 p.m. after a long day of rehearsals and meetings to spend time with her family. Dinner is usually fish or chicken and vegetables.
She heads to bed at 10:00 p.m. so she can get the 8 or 9 hours of sleep she needs for the next day.
You'll not find her doing much on Sundays, which she uses as a day of rest and recovery.
