At the Town & Country Philanthropy Summit’s milestone tenth-year celebration, Arnold Schwarzenegger shared his secret for a successful morning: favoring immediate exercise over early reflection.
The acclaimed actor and former bodybuilder, at 76, bypasses morning contemplation for a robust workout. He describes this habit as a shift from a monochrome to a vibrant, colorful state of being, crediting this routine with his sense of well-being and perspective on life.
Schwarzenegger’s daily regimen includes tending to his beloved pets, Lulu, Whiskey, and Chanel the pig, before heading to the gym. His philosophy is straightforward: sidestep early morning overthinking by engaging in exercise, which he believes wards off negativity and fosters positivity.
This practice, he asserts, has been a cornerstone of his success both professionally and personally, as a father to his four children. Schwarzenegger’s morning discipline extends beyond self-improvement to philanthropic efforts.
He reflects on his journey, acknowledging the support he received along the way, which now fuels his desire to give back, especially through his work with the Special Olympics and fitness-focused afterschool programs.
In a shift from a self-centric first half of life, Schwarzenegger’s latter years are dedicated to contributing to the world’s betterment.
