Tips and tricks to hack my morning into creating the best day possible!
I’m a firm believer that my day will go as well as my morning. I’m still working on my morning routine, but this is how it goes for most days.
My alarm goes off and I lay in bed for about 15 minutes. This helps me wake up easier and not be so groggy. Sometimes, I’ll get out of bed and put a cold eye mask over my eyes if I wake up with swollen eyes.
Then, I head into the bathroom to wash my face. I didn’t use to wash my face in the morning, but I found that it helps me wake up. I need all the help I can get! Then, I moisturize with my favorite stuff I keep going back to. Did you know that dark circles come because of a lack of moisture? Within a half hour, my circles are usually gone.
I spend about 20-30 minutes getting ready in the morning. Putting on makeup is therapeutic for me. I always feel better when I fit this into my morning routine. The timing depends if I do my hair that day or not, but I usually do it 2-3 times a week. While I get ready, I catch up on some of my favorite YouTube Channels and listen to my scriptures.
Sometimes, I plan my outfits the night before, but majority of the time, I forget. I pick out my outfit and get dressed for the day. This is one of my favorite parts of my morning routine.
Since Taz mostly works from home, he gets our lunches together a lot. We cut up all the things for a salad the day before so it makes our mornings easier. We find things to eat for breakfast and spend a little while together before I head out the door. I kiss him goodbye and then I’m off to work!
