There’s just something about having a morning a routine and starting the day off right. It can be so simple, but such a game changer! Everyone’s morning routine is different and unique to us as individuals, but if you need some inspo, here are some things I do most mornings:
1. Meditation/prayer in bed
Once my alarm goes off, I grab my phone and turn on a meditation or some Hillsong Worship music and just lay there in bed for about 10 minutes and dedicate that time to meditation/prayer. I know you’re probably supposed to sit up while doing this but I’m just so comfy in bed and love this time.
2. Morning skin care routine:
In the mornings, I usually just wash my face and put lotion on after. Brands I love are Honest, Intelligent Nutrients, Cocokind, and I have been wanting to try January Labs and Drunk Elephant.
3. Full glass of water and a green juice
I definitely start each morning off with a big glass of water and just recently have been incorporating green juice into my morning routine about 3 times/week. I like to juice cucumber, celery, lemon, ginger, and carrots.
4. Gratitude/journal practice
This takes 5 minutes. I have a specific notebook dedicated to this and I write down what I am grateful for, affirmations (ex: I am loved), prayers, and goals. There’s no right or wrong way to do it, but just feels so good to get my thoughts down on paper and also having a gratitude practice has changed my life. Writing down what I am grateful for each morning has me in constant thought of how much there is to be grateful for. It changes your perspective on everything in life. So powerful!
5. Fit For Me workout
I start most week days with a 25-40 minute FFM workout video and it is my FAVORITE way to start the day. Best feeling!
This all takes about 45 minutes-1 hour and completely sets the tone for my day. I crave this time in the morning now and truly enjoy it! PS-I try to stay off my phone during this time (except for the meditation).
