Weekly Morning Routine

Let me start by saying that I am not a morning person. Getting out of bed in the morning is one of my biggest struggles. However, with days becoming warmer and the sun shining brighter. I find it easier to get out of bed at an earlier time and develop a routine for myself.


7:00 A.M Wakeup
I know that this is not early for some, but I work from home, and as I said, I am not a morning person.


7: 15 A.M Get dressed and stretch.
Because I work from home, my version of getting dressed is usually some loungewear. However, there are times where I like to put on some nicer clothes to help give me some extra motivation; it’s pretty rare. I also have just started doing some quick five-minute stretches in the morning. It has made a difference and helps when you are sitting for 8 hours a day.


7:30 A.M Treadmill
This a new and exceedingly rare step to my routine. When I say rare, I mean I have only done this twice. I only do this if I feel up to it. I probably should not say this is part of my routine, but I am trying!


7:45 A.M Skincare
This is either after just stretching or, on the rare occasion, a walk on the Treadmill. This is my favorite part of my morning routine. I take the time for myself and try to rush through this step. Why is washing your face so relaxing?


8:00 A.M Coffee and maybe breakfast
At the age of 22, I have developed a dependency on caffeine. I blame college and work. I also love the taste of Iced Coffee. At this point, it is a necessity and helps prevent headaches. Breakfast usually varies. Most of the time, I am not hungry and will eat later in the morning.


8:30 A.M Work
By 8:30, I am online and ready to work pretty much the rest of the day.

This is usually my standard routine Monday through Friday. With a couple of outliers here and there. For example, when my alarm goes off at 7:00, I do not get out of bed until 8:20, but it is okay to have those days. I will not lie; it is a boring routine, but I think one of the things 2020 has taught us to appreciate the boring parts of your life and be happy to do these things.


Are you a morning person? Or is there something you need to do to start your day?

  1. Oh wow, this sounds like such a refreshing morning routine, especially since you mentioned that you’re not a morning person! I’m definitely not a morning person but I love when I wake up early. I usually roll out of bed later than 11:30 when I don’t have classes which is something I’m trying to change, hahaha!

    • It is so hard being up and moving in the morning. In college I was able to do classes at 8:00 am with no problem. How times have changed lol
