I have always been the type of person that is so organized. SO organized. I message my friends about weekend plans the week before so I can put it in my planner. Sorry not sorry. So, when it comes to my morning routine, I have it down pat. I figured out what works for me, and what I need to do for myself in the mornings to feel my best throughout the day. Our mornings are the most important part of our day. Creating a morning routine for your schedule is the perfect set up to have a kick a$$ day. Think about this: if you start your day on Instagram, checking in on what other people are doing, how do you think the rest of your day is going to look? You’re morning routine doesn’t need to be hours long, but you enough time so you don’t feel rushed. Below are actions I recommend to start your day, let me know how you plan to integrate these into your morning routine!

  • Wakeup at the same time every day. This helps your body clock develop, creating a solid sleep schedule. It also avoids the feeling of being extremely shocked when your alarm goes off.
  • Make your bed. MAKE YOUR BED. This gives you less chance of climbing back in and makes your room look nice.
  • Meditate. As soon as you wake up, sit up and set your timer for 5 minutes, visualize your day and breathe deep. Take this time for yourself. 
  • Attitude of Gratitude. Write down 5 things you are grateful for. It can be anything from good coffee to a roof over your head.
  • Send love to 3 people that are bothering you. If they’re bothering you, they’re affecting your day and your mindset, and they don’t even know it. Send them love and move on. 
  • Turn on some feel-good music, but one that also has enough energy to get you excited for the day. For me, it’s Spotify’s Feelin Good Playlist. This gets me dancing at 7am. 
  • Journal. Now, I always rolled my eyes at the “Dear Diary,” thing, but journaling is not that. I started when I lived alone in LA, and it helped me understand where I am that day mentally. Journaling helps get things off your mind from the day before, and sets you up for the day (I tried doing it at night but I would end up falling asleep- ha). If you need some prompts to get started, check out my eBook that provides you with 14 days of prompts to help you become more self-aware. The eBook also has more writing ideas for your morning routine and night routine!
  • Planner. Plan your day! Add in anything else for the rest of the week that has come up. I am an ambassador for Passion Planner, and I seriously cannot live without my planner. Passion Planner has helped me create the life I want to live, keep my schedule in on place, and gives me enough blank space for notes and my imagination. You can use my code PRESLEY10 at checkout 🙂
  • Get ready. Whether you’re headed to work or workout, start getting ready for your day! This probably includes washing your face (please), eating a good breakfast (please), and cleaning up any mess you made while getting ready (it’s nice to come home to a clean room).
  • Go crush your day!
