My Mindful Morning Routine

WAKE + CAFFEINATE 

I usually wake up around 5:30 am without an alarm and the first thing I do is go get coffee. You guys know me and my coffee addiction! 

GRATITUDE

Once I have my cuppa Joe in my hand, I will open up my hobonichi planner and in the monthly section write in one thing I am grateful for. Doing this everyday has really shown me that no matter how hard your situation may be, they is always a silver lining and something to be grateful for.

AFFIRMATIONS

I have a list of affirmations stating "I am..." that I read to myself every morning. This not only starts your day off on a positive note but you feel empowered and are attracting what you want. 

MEDITATION AND VISUALIZATION

This has been the most beneficial part to my morning routine by far. I deal with a lot of anxiety so practicing meditation and visualizing my goals have really helped me to stay calmer, connect with myself more and keep my goals at the top of my mind everyday. 

YOGA + EXERCISE

This is my favorite part of my morning. I love to get out of bed and stretch and do my mini yoga routine (leave a comment below if you would like a post on my yoga routine!) It not only makes me feel looser but also gets my body ready for the day. I also like to do some physical therapy exercises for my injuries as well. 

READ

I have always been a bookworm. Whether it is on Pinterest, Audible, my Kindle or reading a physical book, I always like to get some reading in whether it's self-help, fiction or blog posts to help me with my business. 

PLAN DAY

Y'all know I'm a planner and my planner is with me in hand wherever I go. I like to sit down and write out my to do list, any important things I need to catch up on or follow up on and block time out for certain things. This helps me to stay productive and on task.

PUT ON SOME JAMS AND SLAY THE DAY!

Okay maybe this is the most fun out of all. Once I'm ready to start my day I put on my playlist with some upbeat jams to get me dancing and ready to take on a new day!
