What's your morning routine?

Recommended Posts

I don't know about you, but I notice a huge difference in days that I follow my morning routine vs. days where I wake up a little later or have to skip my routine. There's something to having a good ritual that you enjoy first thing in the morning that sets the tone for the rest of the day and encourages you to get out of your warm bed in the morning, and I thought I'd share what's important for my routine each morning:

  1. Wake up early (5am-8am)
  2. Get up out of bed and MOVE (pace around apartment, do dishes, laundry, stretch)
  3. Ignite my senses with a cold shower (with some warm water for contrast)
  4. Shave, brush teeth, put on some relaxing clothes
  5. Brew coffee
  6. Go to my reading corner and read for 30-45mins
  7. Cook breakfast and think about my goals
  8. Light exercises or take a walk
  9. Get to work!

This is the core of my morning routine with slight variations from time to time, but it works well for me and helps me start my day feeling refreshed and productive.

How do you start your days?
