Gwyneth Paltrow's Morning Routine For Fall 2020
My Morning Routine
My mornings have slowed down considerably. School drop-offs and rushing to an exercise class to cram in
a workout before my first meeting seem like a distant memory. But a new set of constants have taken their place.
Since quarantine began, I’ve started every morning with meditation. I use the Insight Timer during TM sessions,
Headspace when I’m struggling to get deep and need some guidance, and The Breathing App when anxiety is
concentrating in my body rather than my mind. Afterward, there’s an hour or so before the kids wake up when Brad and
I hang out in the kitchen and I’m able to get some work in over a hot cup of coffee with half-and-half—a ritual
that’s a meditation in its own right. Our new, next-level, ultradelicious goop Fair Trade Specialty coffee is deep,
creamy, and mellow—and equally good in the afternoons, when I have a second cup, this time over ice with a splash of
We created goop Fair Trade Specialty Coffee to be the richest, best-tasting coffee we could find—and it really
is. Together with our friends at Common Room Roasters and third-generation Colombian farmer Astrid Medina, we
created a whole-bean medium-roast Arabica that smells incredible right out of the bag, as it’s brewing, and as
you’re sipping it.

I’ve always been into working out daily; it’s such an important part of maintaining overall
health and the immune system. I put two GOOPGLOW packets into my water bottle and drink it before, during, and
after Tracy Anderson Method, yoga, or The Class by Taryn Toomey (I’ve been doing it all
it’s a giant emotional release, a spiritual cleanse, and an intense workout).

Working out every day can be a grind. I find that a workout clothes upgrade can be a motivator,
which is why I love the G. Sport x Proenza Schouler collaboration. And I wear Hoka sneakers because
comfortable to walk or dance in.

Some days, instead of a high-intensity workout, I’ll do a morning walk and listen to a podcast. In
rotation now are The
Peter Attia Drive, The goop Podcast, Harvard Business Review,
by Techcrunch, and On
Being when I want something uplifting (Krista Tippett is magical).
I’m not a big-breakfast person and will usually follow my workout with a smoothie.

The G.Tox Himalayan Salt Scalp Scrub Shampoo is a hero product that’s stayed under the radar but
is incredible. It lathers into thick, rich suds; it’s so moisturizing; and the salt crystals give the best
scalp massage. It’s a visceral experience, leaving my hair feeling clean, full of volume, and shiny. Following
shampoo is the one nonclean product I still use: conditioner. (We’re working on a clean version—fingers
crossed for next year.)

I discovered the Crown Affair kit in the goop shop after reading Jean’s
story about it. If you’re
keeping conditioner use to a minimum, the serum works great to seal in shine. There’s also a comb, a silk
scrunchie, a towel, and a hairbrush—plus a little hourglass to time your brushing.
In the warmer months, I smooth on G.Day body oil while my skin’s still wet postshower. It smells
like spice—vaguely like your dad or boyfriend. Once it starts to get cold, it’s GOOPGENES body butter head to

Or I’ll use this Sadhu oil, which is so good after the shower if you have sore muscles or joints.
You can massage it on pre- or postworkout, too.
I stole a tester bottle of our forthcoming GOOPGENES face oil from the product development team
and have been savoring it drop by drop until the official launch next year. I layer this clinically proven
moisturizer on top to help with fine lines and wrinkles. It’s a family favorite: From my daughter to my mom,
we all swear by it.
