Good Morning Friends!

A lot of you have been asking me about what I do as part of my morning routine! So I wanted to break things down for you and get super specific on how I love to start the day.

Morning routines are SO important because they set the tone for the day ahead.  It’s key for you to build a morning routine that works for YOU. It doesn’t have to be long either! While I like to take a little bit more time for myself in the morning, you can also keep it short and sweet. The key part of a solid morning routine is that you start your day with a self care activity that makes you feel good.

Whether it’s meditation, exercise, morning news, coffee, and/or some reading – I highly recommend you start building a morning routine for yourself that you love & you can STICK to.  One of the great benefits of creating a morning routine is that It gives you predictability.  It allows you to center yourself – ultimately giving you the support you need perform to the highest degree, professionally and personally.

In the vein of morning routines, I wanted to breakdown my ideal morning routine for you:

  1. Hydrate with filtered water first thing in the morning: Hydration is key to starting your day on the right foot since you wake up dehydrated.
  2. Bounce on rebounder for 5 min: Benefits include stimulating your lymphatic system, plus it’s a super energizing way to wake up and get your heart pumping.
  3. Read my book & drink matcha: I love being able to spend some quality time losing myself in a book while drinking some hot coffee or match. I personally love Four Sigmatic Coffee or Primal Kitchen’s Collagen Matcha.
  4. Workout or move: I typically like to workout for 1 hour every morning or 20-30 minutes if I’m in a rush or hopping into meetings.
  5. Multitask in the shower: Shower and oil pull at the same time. For those of you who aren’t familiar  – Coconut Oil pulling is swishing 1 tbsp of coconut oil in your mouth for 10 min to help with overall gum health /teeth whiteness. Be sure to spit it in the trash when you’re done.
  6. Dry brush, brush my teeth & get dressed so I can get fully ready for the day.
  7. Lastly, I finish off with some breakfast & gratitude.  I love taking 5 minutes to write in my Five Minute Journal reflecting on everything I’m grateful for as it’s a super positive way to start of your morning.
