Dolly Parton Reveals Her Morning Routine That Has Her Getting Up At 3AM

Dolly Parton may be 73 years-old, but the country music legend is staying as busy as ever! Now, she’s opened up about the morning routine that is the secret behind her youthful energy, and it revolves around getting up very early in the morning to do “spiritual work.”

“I’m usually up by 3 o’clock,” Parton explained. “I go to bed early, but I’m just an early bird.”

Though many of us enjoy sleeping in, Parton says that she loves getting up in what she calls “the wee hours.”

“I do my little meditations, I do my little spiritual work,” Parton said. “I get more work done between 3 and 7 than most people all day, because it’s quiet and the energy’s all low-key, except mine.”

She added that one of the most important part of these early morning hours is taking the time to pray.

“I pray…that’s the first thing I do when I get up, I just thank the Lord for another day,” Parton said.

The early morning hours aren’t all for praying for Parton, however. She also gets a lot of work done, checking mail, answering calls, and even doing some songwriting if an idea comes to her.

The fact that Parton gets up early to work should come as a surprise to no one, as she has long been one of the hardest working women in show business. It’s so refreshing that Parton is also so open about her strong Christian faith, and that she incorporates this into her morning routine every day. God bless you, Dolly!
