It’s amazing how much I can get done and how much better I feel about the day when I’m intentional about my mornings! Since starting a new job a couple weeks ago, I’ve had to tweak my routine just a bit. Giving myself blocks of 15-30 minutes really helps me to stay on schedule when I have to be out the door at a certain time.
I am not a morning person, so you’ll notice that none of my morning tasks involve talking to people or doing anything noisy. Over the years I’ve found that it’s actually better to ease into the day instead of sleeping until the last possible moment!
Here is the morning routine that I follow every day except Saturday.
- Wake up
- Prayer time
- Make bed
- Make coffee
- Start laundry
- Feed cats & empty litter box
- Share today’s blog post on social media
- Work on upcoming blog posts or videos
- Get dressed
- Brush teeth & put on lipstick
- Gather my things and head out the door!
There’s not a lot of wiggle room in this schedule, so I try to lay out as much as possible the night before. My morning routine can’t be successful without a good evening routine! Making sure that my outfit is ready, my lunch has been packed and the dishwasher is empty all help me to keep on track with my morning routine.

I don’t know if these sheets will help your morning routine efforts – because they make it hard to get out of bed! The set that I own is currently on our guest bed and Paul is really jealous that they aren’t in our room. Ha!
