Morning’s are my favorite part of the day. The world is quiet & it’s the best time to start your entire day on the right foot. There’s a few things I do that really help me make my day productive and fulfilling, so I thought I would share it with ya!
7:00am– Time to wake up! For some reason, 7am is my sweet spot. I feel energized the whole day, I don’t wake up groggy and it helps my anxiety (have no idea why but it does).
7:15am– Make Dan breakfast + coffee time! This is coffee time, so it’s obviously the best part of my morning 😉 Dan has been working long days, so it makes me happy to be able to make him some eggs before he leaves for the day. Sometimes those small things make a big difference when you’re not able to spend a ton of one-on-one time with each other.
7:45am– Pray + Read my bible + Read my devotional. This has been huge for my anxiety and for just having a joyful day! I used to pray in the evenings but by the time the evening rolled around I was already so stressed it was hard to get out of that stressed out state. Praying right when I wake up helps me stay way less stressed throughout the entire day. If you’re looking for a new bible, I love mine! Its the “The Jesus Bible” version and you can shop it here. This ‘Embraced’ devotional by Lysa Terkeurst is awesome too! You can shop that here.
8:30am – 9:30am– Post + engage on Instagram. Just in case the day gets away from me, I try to get a good hour of engaging in before I get up and get ready for the day.
9:30am – 10am– Breakfast! Breakfast for me usually consists of a couple eggs + toast, leftovers (I’m weird, I’ll eat anything for breakfast) or Kefir + an apple with nut butter if I’m not super hungry.
10am – 10:40ish– Workout from home! I workout M, W and Friday and have been loving the PopSugar workouts on YouTube. I get bored super easily, so this allows me to do a different workout each day and actually see results! They have videos for everyone too!
10:40am – 11:10am– Put my face on! That’s what my grandma used to call it, so it just stuck 😉 I wanted to share a few of my favorite products with you because I love them! I’m not a beauty blogger by any means, I’m a very practical gal and these are super practical products you can use every day!
Aveeno Lotion- good for your whole body and face. I’ve been using this forever!
Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum- This has been great for the appearance of my skin! I use it in the am and pm.
Mad Hippie Face Cream- This face cream really does moisturize! I use it before I go to bed and wake up with my face still hydrated.
First Aid Beauty Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer- I’m obsessed with this! It hydrates your face so well and helps your makeup go on smooth. I use every am.
First Aid Beauty Radiance Pads- These exfoliate my sensitive skin and have helped its appearance quite a bit. I use half a pad in the am and the other half in the pm.
Scrunchie- Hey, they’re back! I’ve been using scrunchies over regular hair ties because they’re better for my hair and don’t give me any headaches. & they bring me back to my gymnastics days 😉
Happy Monday! Have the best week ever!! I’d love to hear what you do every morning that gets your day started on the right foot. Comment below and let me know!
