Brunson opened up about her approach to productivity in an interview with Fast Company. She says that she is always working with different people with different points of view. "Productivity to me right now is about communicating to create a solution. It's about articulating my ideas to larger groups of people and companies who may not get it right away. That's often looked at as a bad thing, like, 'Oh, man, these people don't get my ideas.' But what I've learned is that it just takes some expert-level communication to paint the picture for different people you're working with."


She Works Out On Off Days

Brunson is very busy, but she does make time for exercise. She tells Fast Company the she usually works out on her days off. "On a day that I'm not on set, I'll work out. I enjoy working out first thing in the morning. I have an exercise bike. It gives me a lot of energy for the rest of the day."


She Uses Body Wash


Brunson revealed some of her favorite skincare products to Harper's Bazaar. She says that she loves body wash. "I have OLAY—I used to use their Ribbon Body Wash when I was younger, and I still stick with OLAY body washes because of that. But in my bathroom right now, I have their Ultra Moisture Body Wash with Shea Butter. I keep it pretty simple; a good body wash and I'm ready to go."


She Makes Time For Herself

Brunson values her alone time. She tells Harper's Bazaar that she feels it helps with her wellbeing. "I know it's hard, because we're in a society that promotes working a lot and working yourself to the bone. Hustle culture is still very much alive, but I think people need to schedule time to sleep, rest, and do nothing—which includes not being on their phones and having their brains going a mile a minute."


She Uses Natural Hair Masks

Brunson revealed some of her favorite products to NyMag. She says that she uses a natural hair mask. "Bread is a great natural-hair brand. I really love their hair-care products and they've always worked really well with my hair. The conditioner is pretty vital to me, and I always make sure I have a bag lying around. It's soft, but I can feel the effects immediately. Plus a little bit goes a long way so it lasts a long time."
