Mornings can set the whole mood of the day. It helps me determine if my day will be good or bad, productive, or unproductive. A morning routine is how you start your day.
I have experienced that in this time of uncertainty, my morning routine is how my day will go. I try to stick with it every morning, even on the weekends.
On the weekends, I adjust my wake-up time so that I can sleep in, but I always set my alarm. I have a time where I don’t let myself sleep past. This consistent time can guarantee that my day won’t be wasted.
No matter what time it is, I spend a few minutes lying in bed. I check the news and my email. There are a ton of articles saying you shouldn’t check your phone first thing, but I choose to.
What you want to do when you first wake up is totally up to you. Maybe jumping out of bed and going for a run is your cup of tea.
When I get out of bed, I go to the living room and socialize for a bit. There I play a strategy game. This game allows my mind to wake up.
I then decide what to make for breakfast. My go-to breakfast is scrambled eggs with cheese and toast with honey. I have found that it is the best breakfast to hold me over.
I change it up from time to time. Variety is important. I will also have oatmeal some days and cereal with milk others. Breakfast can fuel you for the day, so I can move from my morning properly.
