5 Things to Add to your Morning Routine

To feel better about the rest of your dayProcessed with VSCO with a7 preset

  1. MAKE YOUR BED. There’s something magical about having a made bed that makes you feel like you can accomplish anything the day brings you. If I feel unorganized or like I can’t get anything done, chances are my bed wasn’t made that morning. Try it for a week and see how you feel.
  2. HAVE A LIST OF 3-5 CHORES TO GET DONE BEFORE NOON. As simple or as complex as you’d like-choose what works for you! It might be getting in a workout, unloading the dishwasher, or starting a load of laundry. 
  3. GET DRESSED. I used this as a general term for anything from brushing your teeth and putting on a different pair of leggings to doing your makeup, hair, and the whole shebang! Added bonus if you put on tennis shoes, it might motivate you to squeeze in a workout!
  4. PLAN/PREP YOUR DINNER. If you’re an overachiever and already have your week’s worth of dinners planned out-A+, this is still a great time to prep your dinner. I do this from time to time but its definitely not something I do every week, so I typically plan our dinner the morning of. This may include marinating chicken, turning on the crockpot, or writing down what to buy at the grocery.
  5. GIVE YOURSELF SOME INTENTIONAL ALONE TIME. Even if you can only spend 5 minutes sipping on coffee and reading a bible verse, it’s important to spend a little time each day to work on yourself. I just ordered this book and I can’t wait to start reading it each morning.
