My Work From Home Morning Routine
I've been working from home for more than a year and if I'm honest... I absolutely love it.
Before the pandemic, I was already working from home a couple days a week and it was always my favorite part of the week. I was made for the work from home life.
While it may be easy to convince yourself that you can roll out of bed 5 minutes before you're on the clock, let's be real. That's not the best way to start the day.
But I've totally done it.
Ninety-nine percent of the time, I'm sticking to my morning routine. For years, I've been pretty crazy about how I start my day. I don't want to jump out of bed and just start the day. There a lot of things that important to me that I must do every single morning. I like to ease into my day, while still being productive with my time.
The first thing that I do when I wake up is meditate. For me, meditation is being still. I like the app Abide, which is a meditation app for Christians. I also like to just sit in the quiet or with some relaxing music and visualize. I spend at least 5 minutes in meditation every morning.
Once I've had that time, I open my Bible and read and journal. If this isn't your thing, reading is a great thing to do in the morning. The Daily Stoic is popular and there are also a number of self-help type books that are good reading options to start your morning.
For journaling, I just write some notes based on my devotions that morning or just how I'm feeling. I will then write down 5 things I am grateful for and also 3 things that I am working towards as if they have happened already.
After some quiet time, it is time to do all my beauty things.
The first thing I'll do is brush my teeth, scrape my tongue, and wash my face. I use a toner (I've been loving this one lately) and apply my face sunscreen. After that, I take a few minutes and ice roll my face.
If you aren't ice rolling your face, you are missing out on some serious magic. My face gets a little puffy this time of year because I have pretty bad allergies, but ice rolling my face in the mornings really helps depuff and it just feels so freakin' good.
Two other things that I do in the morning: drink water and take my vitamins. I'm like a witch doctor with the number of supplements I take. It's a whole thing.
Also, make your bed. If you aren't making your bed, you need to start now.
This whole routine probably takes roughly 30 minutes and let me tell you, it makes such a difference in how my entire day goes.
I feel refreshed, renewed, and ready to take on the day. Even if I am still working from home in my pajamas.
What is the number one thing that you must do every single morning?
