I am super religious about my nightly routine however more recently i have tried to enforce a morning routine as well. My nighttime routine helps me unwind and relax, and my morning routine helps set my mood for the entire day. I don’t consider myself a morning person, which really only makes my morning routine all the more crucial. In recent months I’ve loved putting a routine into place giving me a feeling of calm. I also like to feel like I’m ahead of the day so that annoyances and irritations don’t get to me like they would if I wasn’t feeling grounded. Here’s my routine broken down:
I have two kids, four and two years old, and they wake up very early. So the night before, I prepare breakfast smoothies - banana, non-dairy milk, oats, linseed & peanut butter. This way I know they are both getting a healthy breakfast even if we wake up late. Olivia's school bag is packed and I organise clothes for the day.
morning, so I choose to ignore my phone for at least an hour or two. And the longer I stay off social media in general, the better my days are. In fact, I’m hoping to try a digital detox!
This comes later in my morning usually whilst Sofiya has her fruit snack. I love reading a few pages of inspiring books every morning. If you follow me on Instagram, you can watch my Instagram story every morning and read along with me. I am thinking of sharing snippets of the most inspiring parts of what I read. Right now my favourite is “Who says you can’t you do” by Daniel George.
My other favorite read in the morning is The Blogosphere Magazine It’s a really unique magazine printed on high-quality and the most beautiful photography and inspirational interviews from the Blogosphere. It’s a publication written by Bloggers for Bloggers and a great way to discover new talent.
incredibly proud mama but I soon became overwhelmed. This workbook really helped find myself!
I genuinely believe morning worksheets are an incredibly powerful way to bring your intentions and desires into your life experiences when you're otherwise preoccupied.
And that’s my morning self-care routine! It takes less than an hour, and most days I do have interruptions because my girls will require attention but it still recharges me and really helps set the tone for my day.
