Good morning rays of Sunshine!
How many times have we struggled with waking up and get s**t done? On my account: endless! I am the hugest binge-watcher of YouTube’s morning routines and that always give me anxiety: how do they (those perfect YouTubers, ndr) manage to get up at ungodly hours such as 5:30? Seriously, get some sleep girls! Where do they find time and will-strength to drink apple vinegar and hit the gym in the bloody winter cold? Are they seriously able to WRITE a journal that early in the morning?
I can’t even remember how many time I failed while trying to set up a healthy and productive morning routine for myself: the hardest part is actually getting up before 10.30, and in those rare cases where I manage it… I end up wasting my time on Instagram, watching cute videos of cute kittens. But I am an optimistic person and I do firmly believe that achieving those miracle mornings is not impossible. On the other hand, I am well aware that nobody has never ever slept in at least once.
So, long story short: I am here to write about my IDEAL morning routine, the one that I follow during those magical days (two days per YEAR maximum) when I wake up alongside chirping birds and whatnot. But also, I will write about my HONEST morning jam, the one that slap me in the face when I hit that snooze button too many times.
THAT DREAMY MORNING ROUTINE
It’s time to wake up little nugget! I love starting my day early: I have more time available and there is just a magical atmosphere when the rest of the world is still asleep.
Usually when I wake up my body is like a broomstick and it won’t cooperate with me unless I do some sort of workout: it might be a moderate run or a yoga flow or some HIIT, but trust me, afterwards you will feel energized and super motivated.
SHOWER TIME! And make-up time, because when I am feeling productive I usually pull out my business self completely. (I even get dressed properly)
Finally the best part of the day: BREAKFAST! It is by far my favorite meal because I get so creative with food and treaties. According to what I have available, I usually make myself a banana and red fruits smoothies, topped with chocolate and coconut chips, chopped fruit and maple syrup to garnish everything. Otherwise, I always have some non-diary greek yogurt stored in my fridge with some nuts and peanut butter.
And now it is time to finally be productive and do what I have to do for the day, that can be UNI works, chores or errands downtown.
THAT BRUTALLY HONEST MORNING ROUTINE
Let’s get real: everything you just read is complete b*******. I rarely do that. RARELY. What follows is me most of the time, especially during winter months.
The alarm goes off, but I know better than waking up so I don’t even think twice and I hit that snooze button HARD.
I woke up from a wonderful dream into a complete nightmare, because I slept in and most of my “productive” morning has already gone.
I have no time left. I quickly gulp down some coffee and some cereals.
I quickly wash my face and teeth just to get rid of my morning breath (it is a normal thing, NO JUDGMENT!)
I start working as fast as I can, with my pajamas still on and my eyes half closed.
At this point I usually give up on being productive and go back to my Instagram videos of cute kittens.
And that’s it for today my friends! I hope you found this post interesting and please let me know what are your honest morning routine in the comments below.
All the love,
