Welcome to My Morning Routine, where Busy Philipps and other good-life gurus share their personal (frequently surprising, often healthy) morning rituals—to help you make your a.m.’s more awesome.

I wake up between 6 and 7 in the morning and make Bulletproof coffee, which I’m obsessed with. I’ve been doing it for months and months and months and I love it so much. I use the Bulletproof brand coffee, grass-fed butter, collagen, protein powder, and MCT oil, plus a little vanilla bean if I’m feeling sassy.
Then at 8 or 9 a.m. I’ll go work out at LEKFit. LEKFit is honestly the best workout I’ve ever done in my life. I sweat more; I get all my cardio and strength training. Lauren Kleban, who created it, is sort of my workout guru. She helps me stay motivated every day to go to her class. I also love the community. It’s not just an anonymous going to the gym to use the treadmill—I’ve become friends, like real friends, with the girls I work out with. We support each other, we’ve all cried.
I live in Los Angeles, so I feel like the entire place is geared toward health and wellness. But I think it’s important for people to find it for themselves—and for me, sweating every single day is important. It makes me feel like a human being. I’m able to be a better parent and a better friend, and it calms me down. I need that endorphin release.
Busy Phillipps isn’t kidding about how sweaty she gets during a LEKFit sesh. And for more Dawson’s Creek love, get the recipe for the DIY turmeric mask Katie Holmes’ facialist swears by.
