My Morning Routine

Hi and welcome back to my blog, today’s post is all about my morning routine. Now that I am working from home, I’m so much more relaxed in the mornings because I don’t have to rush and leave out for work.

I naturally have been waking up quite early, around 6.30am and lay in my bed for a while. It’s like my body doesn’t feel tired at all and I don’t bother trying to go back to sleep. Having a good morning schedule is so important for your day because it sets the tone to how your how day will go. My routine is below, not always in this order but it gives you an idea of how I start my day.

  • Say a mini morning prayer
  • Say affirmations in the mirror
  • Listen to a guided meditation or relaxation music for 10-20 mins
  • Brush my teeth and wash my face
  • Read a few pages of a book (currently: My Sister the serial killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite which I really enjoyed reading because of the twist at the end)
  • Make my bed
  • Workout for 1 hour
  • Get washed
  • Have breakfast

My phone is definitely used during this time to respond to any emails and I might also listen to the radio or put some music on. Starting the day right sets you up for having a positive, productive day and you’ll feel great afterwards.

Is there anything else I could be doing? Leave suggestions below

Back to blogging

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog, I know it’s been a while and I knew I would come back but I didn’t think it would be because of a virus. This COVID-19 situation has literally effected the whole world and I too am social distancing, “working” from home and only going out to pick up a few things from the shops or for a walk. Also, if possible I am hoping to volunteer in a hospital or do some part time work in a supermarket to help out whilst I can.

I’m back because I now have so much more time on my hands and blogging is a great way to keep us connected in these unusual times. As I’m writing this I have only been social distancing for 11 days and it’s already quite weird, not because I’m a super social person and I go out all the time but because the vibe and energy of life is so different now, the supermarkets are stocked but not full of essentials and if anyone dares to cough or sneeze every head turns in that direction. I guess after a few weeks, staying indoors will become the norm for all of us.

Just to end off, for people finding it really hard just take a moment to close your eyes and take 3 deep breathes, breathing out for one second longer and think about 3 things you are grateful for saying them out loud 

1. I am grateful for my family
2. I am grateful that I am still employed
3. I am grateful for my health 

Stay safe, stay healthy and keep washing those hands xx
