What is the first thing you do every single day (I mean, after you hit the snooze button)? When did that step in your routine begin?
Whenever I wake up, I say a prayer. I thank God for a restful night and I ask for guidance throughout my day. I also pray for Christopher, my friends, and family. I open our bedroom door and I am greeted by my beautiful kitten Alleyjandra. She sees me and immediately starts purring and meowing hopping about and following me wherever I go. We head downstairs and I fill my hot pot and press the button to boil water for tea. I gather the contents of my lunch then head back upstairs (trailed by Alleyjandra) and get ready for my day. Right before I leave, I kiss Christopher goodbye then head out to face the world.
This morning routine started back in September when I began my new job at the high school. The early mornings were an adjustment for me, but I believe I am getting the hang of it! In the future, I plan to get to bed earlier and get an even earlier start. Ideally I would love to even fit in a workout before work since I haven’t established a solid workout routine yet.
My very BEST morning routine was the summer before this past summer. I would wake up quickly, say a quick prayer, then I had this routine with the foam roller that helped energize me. I would do a morning workout then take an icy cold shower. Followed by a smoothie or breakfast. Throughout that time, I felt like I was at my fittest and healthiest. Someday I will get back into a routine like that.
