We all have bad days—but there are some things you can do to set yourself up for a better one. This is something actress Lucy Hale knows, recently spilling on the morning routine she swears by to ensure her days get off to the best starts possible during an event with Almay in Los Angeles—and it comes with a little mind trick.

“What gets me going? Coffee obviously,” Hale says, laughing. “But something I do no matter what time I have to get up for work, wherever I am in the world, is wake up an hour earlier to actually have time—if I start manic, I’m going to have a really crappy day, rest assured. I’m going to be irritable; you’re not going to want to be around me. I always make sure I have a slow morning to do whatever it is I need to do.”

Another reason to implement Hale’s tip? Slow mornings (particularly with coffee) is also a big component in longevity, with the longest living humans in the world starting their day in just this way. Hale also revealed that she begins her mornings by writing down what she hopes to achieve—another thing tied to longevity. Ikigai is a Japanese concept that focuses on having a “why(aka your soul’s purpose)—what are you getting up for and what’s the emphasis of your day?

On top of Hale’s list of what she hopes to achieve, she also creates a gratitude list every a.m. “I start and write things I’m grateful for… it really does help me,” she says. Research suggests that a gratitude practice can aid in a reduced risk of depression and anxiety, and a boost in happiness and well-being. Gratitude has been linked to improved sleepless stresslower blood pressure, and improved immune function. (So it may be time to try a gratitude practice, even if you’re a skeptic.)

Ultimately, for Hale, it all comes down to self care in the morning. “Get that coffee cranking, puppy time, face mask if I have time, all those things,” she says.

When you have adult acne, it’s easy to feel alone, as if you’re the only one getting breakouts past the age of 18. However, anywhere between 12% and 22% of women ages 26 through 44 experience acne, and that number is increasing by the day (on the other hand, only around 3% of adult men experience the condition). In our Acne Diaries series, we’re asking influential women who happen to have acne about their relationship with their skin and the products they use to keep it happy. Next up: actor Lucy Hale.

You’d think acne would have been the least of Lucy Hale’s concerns when she showed up on set to film Pretty Little Liars. But it often wasn’t newfound fame, nailing her lines, or navigating on-set relationships that caused her the most stress; it was her constant breakouts.

“There were tears,” Hale tells Glamour. “There were days when I didn’t want to be in front of a camera. I remember vividly one day we were filming Pretty Little Liars—and the show’s called Pretty Little Liars, so they wanted us to look a certain way—we had to specially light my skin to reflect in a different way so you wouldn’t see my acne. I remember being just so embarrassed and mortified.

“When you’re growing up and you have bad skin, it’s just another added layer of getting comfortable with who you are,” she says of why her skin had such an effect on her sense of self. “I think the reason I’m so obsessed with skin care and beauty is because I struggled with my skin—you just want to crawl in a hole. It feels very isolating, and it can feel so heavy and so difficult. Looking back, I wish I could have had more grace and compassion with myself, but when you’re in it, it’s excruciating.”
