What is your morning routine?
I’m such a creature of habit, so a routine is necessary for me to be productive and creative. I do switch things around every once in a while to change things up a bit.
My current routine starts around 7:00am when my first alarm goes off. I need a few minutes to shake off sleep, so I always set another alarm for ten minutes later, which is when I know I have to get out of bed. The first thing I do every morning is put the kettle on (which is my husband’s alarm - he hates the sound of it). I start my morning off with a mug of hot water and lemon followed by black tea. The first cup of tea is one of the luxuries of my mornings, and it’s something I look forward to every day. I then make breakfast or a protein shake if I’m heading to the gym for my morning workout.
How long have you stuck with this routine so far?
I switch routines every few months depending on my mood and my work schedule. I think it’s important to change things around and get out of my comfort zone.
What time do you go to sleep?
I want to say 10:00pm, but that never happens. I like to take some quiet time to read or write in my journal before going to sleep. I find that it’s a good way to disconnect from my day and get a good night’s sleep.
Do you do anything before going to bed to make your morning easier?
I wish I did because I like to take my time in the morning, but I almost never do.
