Do you think it’s healthy to have a morning routine??? I honestly love our morning routine and I don’t function well when we don’t stick with it.
All summer we have had a solid routine going in our house. Our routine is simple but keeps us organized in the morning and also allows us to spend time together.
Here is what “MY MORNING ROUTINE” looks like:
I wake up around 6:00am almost every day, give or take 15 minutes. Sometimes Ava wakes us up early and other days we are blessed with a later wake up call.
When she’s up I change her diaper, give her a cup of milk, grab myself water & a coffee and immediately start pulling out food to make all of us breakfast.
We usually eat breakfast between 630-650am every day.
I get myself dressed and ready, we put Ava in the stroller & take Cooper for a walk around 730am.
On Mondays and Wednesdays when I teach early classes Marc takes the 2 of them for a walk without me. The other days I arrive at the YMCA for 8:00am shortly after our walk.
While this routine is only about 1 – 1.5 hours of my day, it works for us and I feel good when we stick to it.
Sometimes on the weekends our breakfast & walk get pushed back a little later, but when we don’t get out of the house for that walk it bothers me. I love getting fresh air, its a natural caffeine fix for me, plus it gets my blood flowing and I’m ready to start my day with some good endorphins.
I always feel energized after our walks and it feels great to know that my little doggie got his exercise in for the day.
This routine has allowed us to spend extra time together and even Ava has grown to LOVE it. Especially the walks If Marc tries to walk Cooper without us, she starts to cry and doesn’t want want to miss out!
There are plenty of people out there that do not have a morning routine and usually SKIP breakfast & exercise. I think it’s so important to do both! If you work it into your schedule anything is possible. Marc works 45 hour weeks plus commutes 35 minutes each way to work and he still finds the time to eat breakfast with us and take Cooper for a long morning walk!
