I’ve never been able to really stick with a morning routine. It’s usually a goal of mine for the new year, but then life happens, and I end up with the same old habits of running around like a chicken with my head cut off. This also happens any time I have time at home before an obligation. However, I’ve recently gotten into a morning routine that doesn’t leave me as frazzled feeling as I have in the past.
Drink Warm Lemon Water
Prior to coffee, I’ve been drinking warm lemon water. I let Gizmo & Winston out while my water is warming, so I multi-task that way.
Make a To-Do List
I used to make a to-do list for the entire week, but I often felt that I wasn’t even making a dent in it. Now, each morning whenI wake up, I make a list of all the things, both personally and professionally that I need to accomplish in the day.
Catch Up on Instagram with Coffee
After I have my lemon water, I catch up on Instagram. I don’t have time during the work day for social media, but also, if I’m being honest, I don’t want to be glued to my phone 24/7, so I knock it out in the morning & right before settling in for bed.
Snuggle My Pups
Y’all know it’s no secret that I love my pups. Nothing starts my day off better than snuggling them for a few minutes before leaving for work.
Make the Bed
I cannot stand leaving the house without making our bed. On the rare day that I don’t make our bed before leaving for work, I still make it before going to bed.
Whether it’s folding a load of laundry, putting dishes away, or wiping down the counters. I try to do one thing to care for our house before getting ready.
I pick out my outfits on Sunday night for the week, so unless there is a big shift in weather, or I just don’t feel like wearing tights that day, I have found that this saves me so much time in the morning. I usually wash my hair at night, so I style it in the morning, and then swipe on It! Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact, Benefit Dew the Hoola Bronzer, and It! Cosmetics Mascara.
What is your morning routine?
Hope you’re having a great week! Happy Friday Eve!
