Speaking with WSJ Magazine for their My Monday Morning series, the “Smile” songstress told us about how she and Orlando Bloom start their day with their year-old daughter.

“Well, the first thing I do when I wake up is a little tiny verbal ritual,” explained Perry. “I do it every single morning. I say to myself out loud, ‘Thank you, God, for today. I am grateful for every day.’”

Katy added, “Then I try to start my day out with my daughter, playing and having some floor time with her. Reading some books. It usually varies what time we’re waking up, 7 or 8 a.m. Sometimes I get to sleep in and Daddy takes her until 9, which is super. But we do breakfast together.”

However, Perry and her daughter always take part in listening to a particular song each morning.

“We always start the day by listening to ‘Lovely Day,’ by Bill Withers,” noted the “Teenage Dream” singer. She continued,Daddy and I, we drink a couple strange drinks or healthy concoctions in the morning before we cram in our coffee. We drink a Niacin flushing drink, which makes us all red and gets the blood moving. Sometimes we’ll have celery juice, it just gets the movements going. We need all the help we can get.”

In order to gear up for her “PLAY” residency at the Resorts World Theater in Las Vegas, Perry has been going to the gym regularly to build up strength for the demanding performances.

She joked, “My exercise routine is being half late to the workout because I hate working out. I’m always like, ‘I’m so late, too bad I can only do a few things.’ The guy who works me out is like, ‘Yeah, right.’ Right now, I’m gearing up for a big residency at the end of the year in Las Vegas, so I’m back in the gym about 3 to 5 times a week, but really it is about strength training and weights. We also like to hike. Orlando has one of those hiking backpacks that we can pop Daisy into; she loves it.”

As a Popstar mama, Katy recently told PEOPLE that she is saving all of her over-the-top and iconic outfits for her daughter to try on one day.

"I kind of already have a vault," shared the American Idol judge. “I'm saving things for her. I don't know where she's going to be able to wear all these crazy outfits, but I'm saving them for her. Also, trust and believe I am always on the hunt on Etsy late at night just finding little cute costumes for all the holidays. I've got a gingerbread dress favorited — just all of my dreams come true."
