Whether you’re getting in a pre-work spin class on a regular basis or you’re more likely to hit snooze as many times as possible, just know this: There’s a good chance Martha Stewart—AKA the ultimate morning person—is going to make you re-evaluate your a.m. routine.

When the lifestyle mogul starts her day, pre-dawn—without an alarm clock, mind you—she gets her brain going before getting out of bed.

“I usually wake up with sunrise, which has been around 5 a.m…I have my iPad right next to my bed, and I do the mini-crossword puzzle.”

“I have no shades on my windows, so I usually wake up with sunrise, which has been around 5 a.m.,” Stewart told the Cut. “I generally read the New York Times right away. I have my iPad right next to my bed, and I do the mini-crossword puzzle—if I haven’t done it before I go to bed, because the new one is posted around midnight. It’s sort of a habit I have.”

Being able to think clearly enough to do a puzzle immediately after waking up is a true skill in itself, but being able to finish it before coffee is a talent we’d all love to steal.

Find out how to live long and healthy, according to Stewart. And if you’re struggling with what to make for tonight’s dinner, try this Martha-approved roasted veggies recipe.
