My (Super) Basic Morning Routine

LIFE TIPS / HACKS, Uncategorized

Hello, hello! I hope you’re having a lovely day. Spring is amazing, don’t you agree? In today’s post – inspired by the lovely Ella – I will be sharing my morning routine! To be honest with you, I don’t really follow a “strict” routine. These are just some of the things I find myself doing every morning before I start my day. You may have a routine, you may not – but however you start your day, start it with a grateful heart! ❤

Let’s get right on to the post.


NUMBER 1 | Wake Up

I usually wake up from 7:30-8:30am, depending on what I have going on that morning/day. Sometimes my dad wakes me up, other times, I get up naturally because of the sunlight (yipeeee). That has it’s pros and cons – a few weeks ago I woke up at 6am thinking it was 9! Maybe it would be better if I had an alarm clock and black-out blinds…or, maybe not.

Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

NUMBER 2 | Social/School notifications

In the quiet of the morning I like to check my online school’s site for updates and other little things. I also check my email and chat with friends. If I have some homework that needs to get done right away – or that I didn’t do the night before – I’ll do it now.
Don’t wake up with the regret of what you couldn’t accomplish yesterday. Wake up while thinking about what you will be able to achieve today. 

NUMBER 3 | Breakfast

This step is *pretty* vital. I usually eat while checking my social/school notifications and email (above). It depends on the day as to what I eat. The menu can include anything from toast, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, to a smoothie, or – if it’s one of those days – there’ll be something fancier.
Set a goal that makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning.

NUMBER 4 | Prep For The Day

After I finish eating, I’ll go pick out what I’m going to wear that day and get dressed. I’ll brush my teeth, do my hair (aka brush it… I have legit no hairstyle inspiration ever bc #basic), and get ready for the day with all the stuff that needs to get done.
Focus on being productive, not busy.

NUMBER 5 | Devos

Before I officially start my day, I’ll do my Bible reading. This usually consists of reading chapters of both the Old and New Testaments and, if I’m feeling creative, I’ll journal a verse or two. It’s always good to start off the day in God’s word.
Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Psalm 143:8

NUMBER 6 | Start The Day

After I finish my Bible reading, I’ll start the day off with school and the normal everyday to-dos.
Start each day with a grateful heart.
And that’s my super basic morning routine! I hope you enjoyed reading about it, and if you’d like to see more posts like this, let me know in the comments!

  1. My morning routine? Well, I wake up, get dressed, take the dog out, eat food, and start my schoolwork. I can’t have a good day unless I get fresh air, even just an open window.
    This was a really fun post! I was disappointed when it ended (I just looked at the screen and thought, aw man…)
    I really like the new look, too! 🙂
