How does she do it all? In a recent interview with her sister’s wellness site, Poosh, Kardashian West revealed that her secret to keeping her busy, busy life in order is a lot of careful planning.

A day in the life of Kim Kardashian West

West told Poosh that most days she wakes up at 5:45 a.m. for her 6:00 a.m. workout. To keep things simple, she lays out her workout clothes the night before and “pretty much wear[s] the same thing all the time.” She works out for an hour before jumping to the next thing.

“Let’s say it’s a school day. I’ll wake the kids up at 7:05 a.m., and we’ll all have breakfast together. I’ll get the kids ready and then take them to school, come back, and start my day. Usually, we’re filming, and we have to get ready in hair and makeup, so I’ll have glam at 9:30 a.m. and I’m ready to film by 11 a.m. Or I’ll have meetings and just start my day,” she said.

Despite waking up so early, Kardashian West doesn’t go to bed most nights until about 11:00 p.m. thanks to her rigorous study schedule.

“In a perfect world, I love to go to bed early, but because I’ve been studying for law school, I spend my nights reading. The day usually consists of me going into the law office a few times a week, and then I film our show. Most nights I’m done after dinner, and I get the kids ready for bed and read books and put them to sleep. Then it’s back to studying for me until about 11 p.m.,” she said.

How Kim Kardashian West manages her schedule

Kardashian West says keeping her house, and her life, super organized help with her busy schedule.

“Everything is super organized in my house—micromanaged to the minute. Like I mentioned earlier, I will lay my clothes out the night before so when I sleep in, I’ll wake up at 5:53 instead of 5:45, and I just know my outfit is there. I have a toothbrush and my toothpaste all ready to go laid out by my sink. I just have to brush my teeth and go to the gym,” she said.

Additionally, she tries to keep her activities close to home for the sake of minimizing travel time.

“Luckily, everything I do is pretty close by in Calabasas. I try to keep everything as local as possible and make sure that I spend enough time doing the things that I really want to do, like waking my kids up, getting them ready for school, having breakfast with them, and dropping them off at school, because those things will keep me sane when I’m overworked,” she said.
