My Morning Routine

Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been MIA, I’ve had some health concerns recently so I took a break to focus on my mental (bad) and physical (worse) wellbeing. Anyways, my daily routine suffered for a bit and I’m trying to get back on it.

Wake up around the same time: During the week, I wake up between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. and lay in bed until it’s absolutely necessary to get up. Depending on the time, I can set my intentions for the morning and squeeze in some housework before I begin my lovely workday.

Move that old body: I like to move my worn down body so I’m not cramped up and feeling any more awful. I either stretch, pace around my apartment, and if I’m feeling spicy I’ll do a cardio workout. Since I’m not out in the community anymore, I’ve had to find new ways to keep doing the bare minimum for physical activity.

Keep caffeine on deck: It doesn’t matter if it’s coffee, tea, Red Bull, I just need something to help keep myself awake. In the morning I will drink coffee, and in the afternoon I will switch it up and treat myself to a sugary energy drink. (No, I do not get enough sleep. Yes, I am dehydrated).

Find a good playlist: Spotify has been a life saver during this ~panorama~ to get me through hours of case notes and assessments. I usually pick lo-fi playlists or jazz because it keeps me on my toes. Of course, you can listen to anything you want. I find that if I put on Netflix, I’ll be more distracted and end up binging a show instead of….well you know, working.

What kind of routine do you follow? Do you like to switch things up to keep things interesting?

  1. You’re beating me when it comes to waking up at a decent hour. I’ve been sleeping in until noon! I feel so unproductive when I sleep in so sleep and the cycle keeps repeating itself…despite the good intentions. 🤦‍♀️
