Blogmas day 5! You know what that means? 20 more days till christmas!! Who else is excited!? I sure am!! Anyways todays post is all about morning routines. I have a lot of different ones, depending on the day of the week and my mood. I was trying to choose one to post about and then I figured, why not do a few of them! So here are three very different morning routines, varying in moods, day of the weeks, and personality! Also just a disclaimer I start school at 7:45 a.m. and it takes me about twenty minutes to get to school so I plan on leaving at 7:15, and for my Sunday routine I start church at 9:30
Lazy (pretty much everyday) Morning Routine
I sleep with my phone on the other side of the room, so that when my alarm goes off I will have to get out of bed to turn it off. It is an incentive to getting up and staying up in the mornings. On most days of the week my alarm will go off at 6:22, because if the alarm goes off at a less common number, I feel more obligated to get out of bed in the morning. But me being the lazy person I am, will wake up walk to my phone, and set my alarm for 6:40, and go back to sleep for a while. When my alarm goes off the second time I will wake up and grab my phone and put it in my bed and set 5 minute alarms until 6:55, when I finally decide to get out of bed. As soon as I get out of bed I immediately regret waking up so late and I automatically think “Well no wonder you always look like crap when you go to school, cause you get out of bed so late.” then after I scold myself I say, well tomorrow I will do better, tomorrow I will wake up earlier. Even though on most days, that doesn’t happen. By the time I have waken up all the way and gotten out of bed it is 7:00. Then I have to rush to get ready, I usually throw my hair up into a ponytail, and put on a little concealer, mascara, and eyebrows. Its usually already 7:15 already, and I run to get dressed, and run downstairs and throw the remainder of my lunch together (My amazing cousin that I take to school, usually gets to my house at 7:15 and makes my lunch for me cause she knows that we would be so late if she didnt lol) and run out the door.
Productive Morning Routine (aka the routine I wish I could bring myself to do every morning)
On days that I am being productive I will wake up between 5 and 5:30 depending on what I have planned, but usually its about 5. I wake up and move around for a minute, light stretches and maybe some jumping jacks, to wake me up so I am not so tired. Then I run downstairs and make some coffee, tea, or red-bull depending on my mood for the morning, and make a bowl of oatmeal with berries or brown sugar. Then I will go upstairs to my office, and sip my drink, eat my oatmeal, and work on my blog for a while. Then Ill read, or watch motivational videos, or meditate, or listen to podcasts, or write in my journal, and continue to do that until about 6 or 6:30 depending on how ready I want to get, but for this specific example I want to say probably about 6:15. On days that I give myself enough time to get ready, I will probably curl my hair and do my makeup nice, and then I will pick out a cute outfit, and actually make a nutritional lunch to bring to school. Then if things work out well, I will have a few minutes of downtime before my cousin gets to my house to play with my puppy Delilah, or read some more, or listen to some music that will get me pumped up for the day. Then we head out for the day.
Sunday Morning Routine
I don’t talk about religion a lot on my blog, because I don’t want you to feel like I am forcing anything upon you. But I go to church, and Sunday routines are my favorite, be looking forward for one of those coming up here soon! But on Sundays I usually sleep in a little bit, until about 8. When I wake up, I like to plan out my outfit for church first (usually jeans and a nice shirt, and occasionally a dress), before I get ready so that I can decide what I am going to do with my hair and makeup. Sometimes I do it curled, or straight, or if I am feeling lazy I would do a messy bun, and I usually do simple subtle and pretty makeup, that Isn’t to extreme. After I am done getting ready I will grab my Bible, my notebook, and a pen. I will also head downstairs and make some tea in a to go mug and head out.
