Hello everyone. Today I am sharing with you my perfect morning routine. I´d say perfect because I do not always have the time to do all of those things but I’ll try to get them in as often as possible because I believe that the way you start your day sets your energy and your mood for your entire day.
I’ll wake up between 6am and 6.30am. I was always a morning person so I do not necessarily need an alarm. But I like to set one so I do not sleep much longer then 6.50am because I would feel grumpy all day long if I sleep too long. Of course I do sleep in sometimes when I really feel like it but most of the time my body wouldn’t allow it.
First thing in the morning I’ll try to make it a habit to drink some water. For some reason I always forget it in the morning even though I have no trouble drinking a lot during my day. I like to drink at least 4 liters a day.
Next thing would be making my bed and walking around my room to make sure it is all cleaned up if not it’s the time of my day where I do a quick clean up. I also like to open my window during this time to get some fresh air in.
If I feel comfy in my room again I´ll do some yoga to wake up and get energized. I mostly do a 20 to 30 minute routine from Boho Beautiful on YouTube (make sure to check them out they do have an amazing channel) followed by a quick 3 to 5 minute facial yoga to tone up the jaw line 😉 .
Next step I like to do some journaling. I just take some time to write down whatever comes to my mind. Sometimes I write down what happened yesterday some days I write down what is bothering me. Sometimes I even write like a little story or an essay and on a few days I even write a poem. On some days I plan my future, make a bucket list or plan an event. Then I always love to write down one single thing that I am grateful for like for my mother or simple things that I have a house to live in or that I have the possibility to get a good education. And last but not least I like to write down one goal for today. Just one thing I want to accomplish this day. It can be something very simple like meeting an old friend or reading for 1 hour or I don’t know what you guys may like to accomplish but by setting a goal you can easily achieve during your day you will feel amazing once you hit it.
Last step before we go on to the breakfast is my facial routine: 1. Washing my face with clear cold water 2. Put some anti acne facial water on 3. Use my anti acne pen on affected areas 4. Brushing my teeth for about 2 minutes 5. Put on my face cream 6. Put on some deodorant and I am ready for breakfast.
Breakfast. I love to get a healthy and vitamin rich breakfast in to set myself up for a healthy day. At the moment I am obsessed with oatmeal. I use 1/3 cup of oats and mix it up with a smoothie or sometimes with a little bit of coconut yogurt (I really like the one from Joya without added sugar). It tastes amazing. Then I will add a ton of fruits. Always on board is my all-time favorite the banana. And since it is autumn I would probably have an apple along with it and some small fruit like Clementine’s or some plums, a kiwi fruit, an orange guys there are plenty of options out there. On top I always put some cinnamon because cinnamon is life. Along with that I would have an herbal tea. My favorites are green tea, ginger tea or peppermint tea. But to be honest I am really in love with nearly every herbal tea I have ever tasted. And I also take some magnesium supplements after my breakfast. After that I am ready for my day. 🙂
