Ryan Seacrest Shares His Secrets To Work-Life Balance And Success

At just 43-years-old, Ryan Seacrest continues to participate in a variety of ventures including hosting, producing, and developing businesses or charities. In the past several years he added a popular morning show to his resume, replacing Michael Strahan as Kelly Ripa’s new co-host for “Live with Kelly and Ryan.”

Ryan Seacrest is well known for his hosting role on “American Idol” which he has been part of since 2002. He has returned to host a reboot version of the show in 2018. The recognizable TV star also produced several hit reality shows including “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

He doesn’t just do radio or television shows, though. There’s the Ryan Seacrest Distinction brand of menswear and an easy-to-use skin care line called Polished by Dr. Lancer. In addition to those ventures, he has helped to create a non-profit organization called the Ryan Seacrest Foundation which works to inspire today’s youth using entertainment and education as the focus.

He credits working out as a major part of his own regular health routine. He uses a trainer and says he’s worked out during lunch hour on business days even though it’s not the norm. He’s also been so vehement about keeping with his workouts he brought a trainer to the Bahamas so he could keep his routine during the “Live!” television show there.

Ryan Seacrest told the New York Times that he works with a boxing coach, rides Peloton bikes, and tends to enjoy a run in the park to stay fit. While he enjoys his wine, Seacrest also eats healthy. He’s a vegan and consumes matcha tea in the mornings to “set the tone” for his body.

Some of the other things that Ryan Seacrest does are consume overnight news in the morning and try to watch some TV. During his seven-minute commutes in the morning car ride, he reads. All of this helps him stay on top of current trends or events.

In terms of working with others, the 43-year-old star believes that using the word “yes” and the phrase “got it” are great for most things. Seacrest says people like hearing the “yes” word and “Got it” is a great response for most emails.

He also has some rules about time management and some wisdom gained from the late Dick Clark. A big part of managing his day is breaking it into two halves. Seacrest says he won’t respond to any pressing requests or phone call interviews until after “the first half of the day.”

He says Clark told him it’s best to stay calm and relaxed to “make the job look easy” for everyone watching him as a host or broadcaster. Ryan Seacrest appears to be doing just that even with the whirlwind of projects he’s involved in.
