Goodmoring Sunshine, The Earth Says Hello: An Ideal Morning Routine

February 18, 2016

morning-routine

I promise this post is a bit more interesting that the title makes it sound!

I feel like every blogger reaches a point in their life when they think, “I should do a post on my morning routine.”

I, my friends, have reached that point. But to be honest, I  don’t really have a daily morning routine. Every day turns out to be little different. So I’m just going to outline what my morning sometimes looks like but more generally, how my ideal morning routine goes.

6:30 Wake Up and Stumble-Over-to-My-Computer Time

Over winter break, I started getting up super early because of my jetlag but I ended up just keeping the early-rising going because there’s something so nice about being awake before the rest of the world.

I usually head straight to my computer, check the socials and then queue a blog post. Sometimes I’ll had out and get coffee but I’m the kind of person who prefers to stay in PJ’s until I have to become a real person.

8:00 Breakfast Time!

By now I’ll be getting a little hungry. I hate having the same exact thing for breakfast every day so I’ll shake up my morning routine by rotating between spinach and onion omelettes, toast with jam, cereal and even the occasional pancake (my boyfriend and I have a thing for singing ABBA while cooking said pancakes which makes them even better). Oh, and this is where coffee comes in too.

10:00 Gym Time

Recently I’ve been really good about going to the gym every other day. After drinking my coffee (which is actually really good for working out!), I’ll throw my bag together and hop over. I usually only end up working out for about 45 minutes (I’m not one of those people who devotes a full half day) and will then head home to shower.

12:00 Meetings/Coffees/Lunches/Classes (ha, almost forgot about those)

Post-post-gym-shower and having become a person (which is admittedly my favourite part of this morning routine), I’ll usually have a few things to do for the rest of day. Whether they’re meetings or more fun social things, having the endorphins from the gym and a good nights sleep make my day soooo much easier.

 

Overall, I really like starting my days like this. I’ve never been much a sleep-until-1-pm but do envy those people sometimes. I just think it’s so amazing how much stuff you can cram into a day just by waking up a bit earlier.

And while this morning routine is subject to change daily, I like thinking that I’ve at least got some pattern to my days.

What’s the highlight of your morning routine? If there was one thing you could change, what would it be?
