I’ve been wanting to write this post for some time. These I find hard to write because there isn’t much to say but I’ll do my best to elaborate and make this more enjoyable for you. I hope to maybe mention some things that I use or do in the mornings that help me start my day on the right foot. I’m working on the healthy and relaxing steps of my morning so I can be productive and motivated for the whole day.
WAKE UP AT 9 AM
The second I wake up, I take a few deep breaths and wipe my eyes. I am guilty of getting on my phone the moment I wake up so I’ve been trying to just relax in bed for a few minutes before grabbing it. I feel like I’d be one of the few (or many) that could just stay on their phone 24/7, which I know isn’t really healthy. I need a day off from social media that’s for sure but man it’s hard and I constantly have FOMO. How does anyone else deal with this?! As I said, I’m working on it. Usually within minutes of me actually waking up the dogs come out of the covers, because yes they sleep with us, and they start prancing around for food.
GET UP 9:30AM-10AM
I’m taking back my mornings….
I roll out of bed and try to pull the covers back together and fluff the pillows. I throw some bottoms on and fix my hair quickly for a minute so it isn’t in my face. I grab my glasses and put my socks/slippers on. The dogs run around my legs and hide under the bed waiting for me to say “okay, food, who’s hungry?” and they dart into the other room.
FEED DOGS/GET READY
I walk to the kitchen, reach into the pantry closet, and feed the dogs- one by the toy box and the other by the back door. As they eat for about 5 minutes (they eat super fast/LIKE THIS) I try to go hug and kiss Sean and say good morning to him while he gets ready for the day (work or not). I then put the dogs outside to potty (bark at the top of their lungs and pee on the back porch, so not okay Maggie…). While they do their thing, sometimes I’ll play a music playlist or get through a podcast or two while I gather clothes, get dressed, brush my teeth and redo my hair. Sometimes I do my makeup and sometimes not. When I do, I really love Younique and all their products, it is good coverage and doesn’t freak my skin out, and feels light like it can still breathe. I’ve been starting their skincare products lately too, I’ll leave an update for that later. I do love this moisturizer though and didn’t know how thirsty my skin was. I’m almost always messaging Pamela and Raewyn by now and seeing how their mornings are going. I bring the dogs back inside and if they pottied they will get a treat like these from BarkBox –referral code link- (I tried one last month and they LOVE IT ALL). I would highly suggest this as a sub box because even my small dogs loved their toys and goodies!
Then their energy kicks in while I start my day-they play and jump around, or they hop on the couch and go back to sleep.
