As my night routine post was so successful, I decided to a morning routine as well! The morning is my favourite time of day. I try to make this most of the early hours, and I usually achieve the routine in this post 6 times a week. For some reason Thursdays are never great for my productivity. Does any one else have a day like that? No matter how hard you try, it just never works out? Let me know in the comments.
If it doesn’t happen in the morning, it doesn’t happen at all. That’s why I do this first thing! Usually the sessions are about half an hour long, which is perfect. Through yoga my body can fully wake up before I get on with other tasks. Also, after sleeping for eight hours, I certainly need a stretch! You can read more about my daily yoga practise here.
2. Skincare routine
It’s really important to have a skincare routine. When I wake up, I cleanse my face then use moisturiser with SPF. However the evening is a little bit different! I won’t go through this now though, because I just uploaded a whole post about my skincare routine!
Without breakfast, I start snacking throughout the day. My go-to breakfast is porridge but I do have lots of other recipes! While eating I enjoy reading. It’s a more positive experience than watching the news! Currently I’m reading The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken.
I don’t touch screens until an hour after I wake up. And after breakfast and yoga, it’s usually 7am. Which means I can practise my languages! At the moment I’m doing French et c’est tres facile cependent les verbes sont difficiles! J’adore français.
5. Post on Instagram
On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays I spend about ten minutes posting to Instagram and catching up on your lovely comments! Doing this at the start of the day motivates me to be productive. And your kind words always bring a smile to my face ☺️
6. Do one thing from my to-do list
This could be writing a blog post, practising my cello or even doing homework. But ticking something off my to-do list close to the beginning of the day makes me quite happy! And once one thing is ticked off, I just want to carry on.
They deserve a cuddle every morning!
8. Head off for my day
At the weekends I might go for a walk or have a drama rehearsal. On the days where I have nothing planned, I try to get myself out. Being inside all day really isn’t good for me! Even though I might want to stay in bed, the best thing for both my mental and physical health is getting outdoors. Some days I have a load of homework so I’ll take myself to the library to do it.
Thank you for reading this post! I’m sorry for the dominating pronoun being ‘me’ and ‘I’. So in the comments, let me know what you do in the mornings.
Is there anything you can’t miss in your routine? How do you prepare yourself for a busy day?
Hope you’re all well, whether you had a good or bad morning!
