Ever wonder what it’s like to be a beauty queen? How about a beauty queen on a mission to save the planet? We got an insider’s view into a day in the life of Lindsey Coffey - model, activist, & current titleholder of Miss Earth 2020 – the beauty pageant with a purpose. She shared with us her schedule from start to finish & the craziness in between.
7:00am – I like to start the morning with self-care routine including some light yoga. I also use this time to myself to listen to music & recite my goals for the day.
7:30am – A glass of celery juice followed by a healthy breakfast to get me through the day.
9:00am – After breakfast, I have a call to check in with my team at Miss Earth. The pageant itself is just one part of the organization. We do so much else & there’s always new projects & initiatives to discuss.
10:15am – I run out for a model casting followed by a fitting. Gotta pay the bills!
1:00pm – Back home to enjoy a pre-prepped lunch. I love a warm plant-based bowl & avo-toast. I’m also obsessed with smoothies these days.
2:00pm - After lunch it’s work, work, work. Today I’m preparing notes for an upcoming speaking engagement about solutions to the water crisis & for some upcoming interviews. I’m also reviewing notes on future Eco-Ed topics & brainstorming potential projects.
4:45pm - It’s a nice day so I’m heading out to the park for a quick workout with my trainer & some time in nature. I always end with 10 mins of meditation to clear my head. Some days I do volunteer work like walking dogs for the Humane Society or getting together with my group for a litter clean up. Both are great ways to help my community & also to spend time outdoors.
5:45pm – I get in a quick catch-up call with a friend.
6:00pm – I end the workday with a Zoom meeting with my agent to review upcoming projects & to get a status report. It’s hard to keep up with my schedule & I’m so grateful to have the support of a team.
7:30pm - Packing for an early flight out the next day for a photoshoot. I guess this is still work ha!
8:00pm – I usually cook but it’s been a long today so I’m treating myself to some take-out from a new vegan spot I’d been wanting to try.
As I wait for my order, I’m gonna wind down the day with a candle lit steamed shower & watch some psychology hacks on YouTube’s TopThink. They have episodes about increasing productivity, building confidence, simple life changing hacks.
9:00pm - Watch just ONE episode of the new Halston documentary. I always try and find new documentaries to watch. Mostly ones on the environment but I also love biopics & historical ones.
10:30pm – I’m a list person so before bed I write a list of what I want to accomplish for the next day. Then off to bed for some much-needed rest…
