The way we begin our morning sets the tone for the entire day.
The Perfect Morning Routine
After a lot of trial and error, I have crafted the perfect morning routine. I’m going to update you guys on what my current morning routine looks like. Starting from the moment that I wake up.
Wake Up 4:45 AM
I like to start my day at 4:45 AM. I use to wake up at 5:00 AM but then got into the bad habit of laying in bed for 15 minutes before I actually got up. With that said, I started to wake up fifteen minutes earlier at 4:45 AM in order to account for the time that I lay in bed. When I finally get out of bed, the first thing that I do is make my bed. Personally, I like having my bed made. It’s just visually satisfying, every time I walk into my room and see that the bed is made.
Get Ready 5:00 AM
After I make my bed. I go into the bathroom and take off my glasses and put in my contacts. Once my contacts are in I brush my teeth. I am right handed but I brush my teeth with my left hand. I watched an interview with Mel Robbins and she shared that she uses her non dominant hand to brush her teeth. It is said that if you do this you will improve your motor control and strengthen the neural connections in your brain. Next, I take my hair out of the braid that I slept in and brush my hair. I usually style my hair in a ponytail or a bun. After I style my hair I change into my workout clothes.
Stretch 5:30 AM
Once I have changed into my workout clothes. I like to grab my laptop and sit-down in this wide open area in front of my footboard in my bedroom. I’ll sit down on the floor and stretch anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes. While I am stretching, I like to watch YouTube videos. I’ll watch videos from some of my favorite YouTubers and or motivational videos to get me mentally prepared for the day.
Workout 6:00 AM
At 6:00 AM I like to put on my gym shoes and go to the gym. Most of the time I workout in my garage gym but sometimes I will workout at the gym in my community. This concludes the perfect morning routine. I filmed my morning routine on my YouTube channel to compliment this blog post. It’s linked down below for you to watch.
