Morning Routine

11 Jul

Good morning!

How is it Wednesday already!?  The summer weeks are flying by way too fast.

As I sit here eating my breakfast before 8:00 a.m. (2 eggs and a slice of my zucchini bread) I got to thinking about how different my morning habits are now than they were in high school and my early college years.

Back then, I HATED getting up early.  I would wake up with just enough time to get dressed and then I would grab a granola bar (or even skip breakfast) and be out the door.  I never gave myself more than a half hour max before I had to be on my way.  Getting those extra few minutes of sleep seemed way better.


Now, however, if I don’t have at least 1-2 hours before I head out the door I feel like my whole day is thrown off.  I need at least 30-45 minutes to make a substantial breakfast and have time to enjoy eating it.  I also like to occasionally do crossword puzzles in the morning and I always catch up on the blogs I read.  And there must be enough time for coffee.


Once breakfast, coffee and blogs happen I need enough time to get ready.  Shower, makeup, hair… I try to be mostly low maintenance but I always lose time when I start to get dressed.  I’m never satisfied with my outfit for the day on the first try!

I’m off – on Wednesdays I volunteer at a senior home.

Have a good one!

Question for the Morning:

  • Do you have a morning routine that you need a certain amount of time for?  Or do you prefer to sleep as late as possible and then run out the door?
