Morning Routine Ideas

I can definitely say I’m a morning person, I normally wake up at around 6:30. I like to have a slow, long routine and have those few hours on my own. As I am still having a full day of work from home, I use the morning as my relaxing time and depending on the day, these are some things I do…

“Every morning you have two choices. Continue to sleep with your dreams or wake up and chase them”

  1. Read
  2. Journal
  3. Write a to-do list
  4. Learn a language (every morning I sit down with the Duolingo app and learn French)
  5. Make bed
  6. Tidy up space for the day
  7. Open curtains
  8. Open windows
  9. Morning skin care routine – wash face, cleanse, moisturise etc
  10. Go outside and breath in the fresh air
  11. Exercise – go on a walk, go on a run or do a home work out
  12. Drink a lot of water to rehydrate your body after sleep
  13. Blog! – this is the time that I write all my blog posts and it is such a productive but relaxing hobby to do in the morning
  14. Have a cup of tea or coffee
  15. Make yourself breakfast and enjoy it. Actually sit down and take your time to eat it!
  16. Connect with friends and family – send a good morning text or have breakfast with them over a video call
  17. Get dressed – when I know I have a long to do list, I wear clothes that I’d normally wear to Sixth Form to make sure I’m productive but mostly I am living in joggers and sweatshirts to be comfortable for the day.
  18. Make a list of three goals for the day
  19. Set yourself up for work – after breakfast, I set up my work space with my laptop, a tea or coffee, and get all my notes and papers that I’ll need. I try to avoid doing anything else on my desk but work, so when I sit down my body knows it’s time to get going!

I can honestly say that having the morning to myself helps me organise my 24 hours and calm any stresses or anxieties that I have. It gives me a few extra hours to be productive whilst people are asleep.
