Get out of bed when your alarm goes off
-I know lounging and looking at your phone always seems ideal but put off checking your phone. It can include a lot of stress factors, give yourself the first 15 minutes of waking up without looking at your phone. Sometimes when I check my phone it derails my entire morning routine.
Make your bed
-Everyone’s least favorite chore I know but making your bed is a 2 minute activity that will make you feel good. Whenever my bed is made, I feel so much more productive and less cluttered. Plus, who doesn’t want to crawl into a freshly made bed at the end of the night.
Stretch your body
-Whether you love to workout in the morning or not, make sure you do a quick 5 -10 minute stretch before starting your day. It’s a great way to get your blood flowing!
-I always drink a big warm glass of water with lemon before I start getting ready. This helps boost my metabolism and gets me ready before my workout.
Wash your face/get ready
-I personally like to workout in the morning. So I will quickly wash my face and save my complete morning/skincare routine till I’m back from the gym.
Squeeze in a workout
-I love working out in the morning, even if it’s a quick at home workout. Getting your heart rate up can help start your day with more energy!
-If you are still feeling groggy or tired, try a quick 30 second cold shower. This helps to awaken your body and I promise you’ll be ready to start the day.
Write out your to-do list/review your day ahead
-I try to save this till I’m completely done with my morning routine. It keeps my morning less stressed and I can strategize the rest of my morning with a clear head. I keep appointments + tasks in my calendar so I can delete as I complete.
