I hope you all are having a productive Monday! I finished my junior year last Thursday, so I am officially done for the summer! Since I have some more time on my hands…I wanted to share my morning routine with you and give tips to create a routine that will have you smiling at the sun rather than pulling the covers over your head. I don’t consider myself to be a “morning person” per say, but since I have worked at 9 am every day during my spring semester, I’ve learned to start appreciating waking up earlier in the morning.
Here’s what my Morning looks like(on a good day):
Drink that H20 Girl
As soon as I wake up in the morning, I try to drink some water. It’s so important to stay hydrated during the day, and drinking a big glass of water as soon as you wake up is a great way to do this! Since I have to refill my Brita before going to bed, I tend to pour a big glass at night and end up finishing the rest in the morning.
I try to make my breakfasts healthy, although who doesn’t love a stack of pancakes??? My favorite combo is a fruit smoothie, some type of fruit, and plain cheerios with almond milk!
Here’s a recipe for my Green Smoothie:
1 cup of Spinach
I cup of frozen berries
I cup of almond milk(or any type of milk)
1 teaspoon of honey to taste
Work that Body
Ok, we all can’t be like Richard Simmons… but I try to do at least 15 minutes of some type of workout if I can fit it in before work! Here are some of my favorite workouts, and YouTubers I like to follow:
Tara Stiles(Strala Yoga)
Yoga with Adrienne
Tone it Up
Quiet time doesn’t have to mean meditating. It can mean journaling, reading, or anything that relaxes you! For me this means sitting down with my bible, studying scripture and then doing a 10-minute meditation. I love the app Headspace for this…they have quick meditations that you can do really quickly before work or class!
Well, this pretty much sums up my morning! I hope you guys enjoyed these tips and make sure to keep an eye on my twitter for updates on episode 3 of my podcast(that’s right we’re already on episode 3!)
Love you guys to the moon and back,
