What Is Your Morning Routine?

What Is Your Morning Routine?

Recently I have been waking up at 6:00am. I do my yoga for 15-30 minutes. I normally have nausea and bone/muscle pain when I wake up but I make myself get on my yoga mat and I always feeling better for it afterwards. It makes a huge difference to how I feel for the rest of the day. After yoga I have coffee then take my children to school. Then I go for a one-hour walk. When I get home I have a juice. The yoga and the walking in the morning have made a huge difference in improving my energy levels and mental health.

I have a little nausea in the mornings so I’m glad I don’t have to rush off to work. (retired) I’m usually good by about 9-9:30 & start my day with breakfast & a slow cup of coffee by the window (bird feeder nearby). Some days I’ll read my daily devotion at that time. Then it’s off to the rural park next to our neighborhood for a walk on a trail through the trees. Of course morning appointments can change things, but this describes most mornings. Even if I don’t feel great for whatever reason , I always feel better after walking.

My husband most mornings makes me a cup of coffee and we sit in bed and then I always have my home made muesli and fruit. I usually try and do some exercise each morning as long as I feel rested. However on the days I am a bit flat even a walk in the fresh air still helps. I don’t have a really strict routine except on my “work” day once a week where I volunteer at the food bank. That requires me to get up and be somewhere. I have only recently stopped casual nursing as the irregularity of shifts and the work was too much for me. Generally the mornings are the best time for me to be productive as I often feel tired in the afternoons. We are coming into lighter and warmer weather now, the mornings can be lovely 🥰

Since being retired I usually wake around 8am, no alarm clock, except on Wednesdays and Saturdays when I get up at 6. I'm usually fatigued and in pain but force myself to exercise for about one hour. After that I feel much better. A shower and breakfast of oatmeal with nuts and berries and I'm ready for my day. Oh, don't forget coffee and my many supplements. I spend some time at my community garden and home projects. Don't forget my wife's honey do list. On Wednesdays and Saturdays I build and renovate houses with Habitat for Humanity from 8 to 4. Dinner at 5 with more supplements and HU. I don't know where the time goes but I can't seem to get to bed any earlier than 11. Sweet dreams and thankful for another day.
