YouTube celebrity Michelle Phan walked Today through her morning routine and it sets a new standard for professional multitaskers everywhere. She never oversleeps because she always wakes up before her alarm, she does squats while brushing her teeth, and she checks emails in the shower:

The first thing I do right when I wake up is look at my phone to see what time it is, to make sure that I don't oversleep—which never really happens, because I always beat my alarm clock by a minute. Next, I brush my teeth, and during that time I like to do squats. And while I'm showering, I put on my waterproof phone case so that I can check my emails. So it's really about maximizing my time and it's all about efficiency.

After I'm done showering, I go into the living room and do pushups while I'm reading and answering emails, and then I look at my calendar to see what my schedule is.

For the rest of us, it's a good day when we just get to work on time.
