Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has revealed he manages stress through a strict diet and exercise regime as well as quirky lifestyle habits like hours of meditation each day.
The 42-year-old’s only daily meal is dinner, but he won’t eat at all on weekends, he has ditched warm showers altogether and he walks the distance between his home and the social media HQ in an effort to make sure his mind stays sharp.
According to Mailonline , Dorsey – whose net worth is $5.3billion – claims the routine makes his days feel longer and says he’s able to switch off to get ample sleep every night.
‘During the day, I feel so much more focused. … You have this very focused point of mind in terms of this drive,’ Dorsey said about having his only meal between 6.30pm and 9pm.
Dorsey usually enjoys fish, chicken, or steak with a salad or a side of vegetables and has berries or dark chocolate for dessert.
The single man – who says he wants to have a family at some point and is trying to experiment with what has the best impact before he does – will allow himself red wine on occasion but notes it interrupts his sleep if he has too much.
But he ditches food altogether for two days of the week and reintroduces calories into his diet with bone broth to prepare for the new week.
‘I’ll go from Friday ’til Sunday. I won’t have dinner on Friday. I won’t have dinner or any meal on Saturday. And the first time I’ll eat will be Sunday evening. I’ve done that three times now where I do [an] extended fast where I’m just drinking water,’ Dorsey revealed.
‘The first time I did it, like day three, I felt like I was hallucinating. It was a weird state to be in. But as I did it the next two times, it just became so apparent to me how much of our days are centered around meals and how — the experience I had was when I was fasting for much longer, how time really slowed down.’
