Do you read Cup of Jo? It’s in my feed and I’ll click through when something piques my interest. Joanna’s morning routine was recently featured on Huffington Post and being the huge internet creeper I am, I loved it; I love reading about people’s perfectly plain, mundane, normal mornings.
Since I haven’t found anything entertaining on the internet in ages, I thought, this morning I’d share my morning routine with you based on the same questions posed to Joanna. (minus the ones about life pre/post kids, obviously)
What time do you get up in the morning? Usually between 7:30-8am
Snooze button? Nope. Even when I had an office job I’ve never hit a snooze button. I used to have an alarm set for 7:08am but would wake up between 6:55 and 7:05 everyday.
What do you wear to sleep? Gilligan & O’Malley pjs from Target.
What’s the very first thing you do when you wake up? Open the patio door to let the crisp morning air in.
Do you exercise in the morning? If I’m going to work out, it has to be first thing in the morning. I get progressive lazier throughout the day and it just won’t happen.
Coffee or tea? Coffee. Always coffee.
What’s your go-to breakfast? Other than coffee, I’ve been bad at breakfast lately. I’ve been bad at all meals lately, actually. I go through these strange phases where cooking seems so hard and every food sounds unappetizing. For the most part, I keep breakfast simple: either oatmeal with raspberries or yougart with strawberries, toasted coconut flakes, and sultana raisins.
My ideal morning is: waking up early, getting a coffee and watching the sun rise over the ocean or a mountain, then tucking myself back under a duvet and reading a magazine or watching something on Netflix.
What is your morning like?
