My morning routine is sacred!
In college I started waking up early so I could have some time before class to relax and restore for the day ahead. This routine really stuck!
I feel so bright and clear minded in the morning, so I take extra time to utilize those moments wisely. I’m pretty good at utilizing my time efficiently, but that is a practiced skill.
I know some of you might be thinking, ‘Wow this chick is insane for waking up earlier than necessary!’ But, I like to start my day with the right intentions so the rest of the day will follow suit.
On the weekends I let myself sleep in, so I’ll let you in on my week day morning routine.
Here are the deets:
5:45 a.m. My alarm goes off and I groan. Then I get my butt up, brush my teeth, change and drive to my morning workout. Depending on the day that’s spin or weight training.
A good tip is to put out your workout clothes the night before because at 5:45 a.m. there can be so many excuses not to get up and go.
*I usually take Friday’s off or take a walk before work. This past Friday I used my working walk to the grocery store and get some spinach for my smoothie, productivity at it’s finest!
6:50 a.m. Get back home to shower. During this time I get ready and drink my warm lemon water. All while listening to some bomb podcasts. (I’m obsessed)
I also take my supplements! I have them in a little old lady pill jar with the days of the week and all…Don’t judge!!
These are just what I take, so keep that in mind.
–Biotin: Healthy hair, skin, nails
–Probiotic: All about that gut health, baby!
–Multivitamin: Just because you know, I’m so #health
–Digestive Enzymes: Help the body break down food properly. Gut health is the key to life!
I usually eat and chug my coffee while watching some YouTube videos.
7:50 a.m. Time to get a little work done and write out my to-do list for the day. Hello Type A once again. If I don’t write things down, it’s like they never existed in my memory…So I’m big on lists.
8:10 a.m. Say goodbye to Patrick, who is usually still sleeping in bed, and head off to work!
I’m obsessed with my morning routine because I get so much done before most people are even up! That accomplishment fuels the rest of my day.
What’s your morning routine like?
