Barbara Pierce Bush thinks big, and not just because she’s part of that famous Texas family. The 34-year-old CEO and cofounder of Global Health Corps, a nonprofit dedicated to health equity, aims to improve care in some of the world’s poorest communities. A fan of cardio workouts, the New Yorker is usually up at 7 A.M. and lacing up her sneakers soon after. “Since I started running,” she says, “I haven’t stopped!”


1. Cat Call


“I use my iPhone as an alarm clock but also have a more effective, living alarm in my cat, Eleanor. She wakes me up at the same time every day, waiting to be fed and pushing me to get to the gym.”


2. Gratitude Attitude


“Before checking my phone, I write down three things I’m grateful for.”


3. Scenic Route


“The West Side Highway is a great path-I usually start in Tribeca and go up along the water. On weekends, I love running across the Williamsburg Bridge, running around in Brooklyn and then back to Manhattan across the Brooklyn Bridge.”




4. City-Girl Gear


“I’m a huge fan of Outdoor Voices and Nike! I wear Nike LunarGlide 7s for running and Outdoor Voices gear in gray, charcoal, navy and pale blue.”


5. Weekend Reads


“I’ve learned to love and protect my downtime. On days off, I read the newspaper in bed with coffee before meeting friends for a class or a run.”


6. Iced Coffee


“I drink it year-round-it’s my favorite luxury. The ladies at my coffee shop know me and have it waiting. That and a protein shake, and I’m good.”


7. Beauty Essentials


“I use Tatcha Camellia Beauty Oil [$95], EltaMD Renew Eye Gel [$50], Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow [$68] and black eyeliner. And I always carry ChapStick [$2]!”


8. Group SMS


“My mom and sister wake up before I do, so without fail, I have sweet text messages waiting.”
