I absolutely love my morning routine. It sets the tone for my day and helps me be the best mom I can be. Right now, I’m waking up around 530am to workout and complete my morning routine and complete my quiet time.
Once my 3rd baby was sleeping through the night consistently, I was able to start this routine. Prior to that, I was NOT able to get up consistently. If you’re in a season of inconsistent sleep, I wouldn’t worry about trying to have a morning routine. When you’re up in the middle of the night, you can easily become exhausted during the day. So please do not read this and think you need to add a morning routine to your tasks. This is simply for those who feel they have the capacity to wake up and get their quiet time in. Of course, if you’re a night person, you could do these things in the evening/nightime if that works better for you.
Here’s how my morning typically goes:
525am wake up, brush teeth, change into workout clothes and make electrolyte water.
535am begin workout. I vary my workouts between Peloton workouts, mostly Barre and Pilates as well as walks/runs on the treadmill.
605/610am complete workout.
610am make coffee and sit down to complete my morning routine. Morning affirmations, prayers, daily schedule, daily goals. See free printable worksheet for more details
645am shower, get ready for the day
715am see kids off to school
