A typical day for producer Ryan Seacrest begins at the crack of dawn at 6am with some moisturizer, and a check of the forecast. He will then go downstairs and enjoy his favorite drink before heading out. As he got into his 30s, he began to realize the importance of working out daily. On an average day, he would hit up the gym during work hours. Even during a vacation, he would frequently bring a trainer along to ensure he kept his workout pace.
The most essential quality to his kind of work is being able to manage time. He has trained himself to focus on long term in the afternoon and devote his mornings to forward thinking tasks. Ryan Seacrest also finds it relaxing to put away the phone for a period of time. On the side, he maintains a vegan diet and splurges when appropriate. The entertainment industry can be draining, but he has found a way to balance professional and personal time.
At the end of the day, Ryan Seacrest (@ryanseacrest) truly enjoys his job from the bottom of his heart. American Idol was recently revived by ABC, which has put him back in the public spotlight. He learned the ways of being a top-notch host from Dick Clark. He was one of America’s great entertainment figures, and Ryan Seacrest has done an amazing job of filling that role for the current generation.
