My Morning Routine

My Morning Routine

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.

One Chore

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.

Get 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!

    I used to be so good about making my bed, but now I literally roll out of it with just enough time to brush my teeth, slap on some makeup, and run out the door. I need to quit hitting snooze so many times and actually get up and be productive in the mornings. You know I start my day with puppy snuggles too!
