This post was inspired by my fascination with other people’s morning routines; there’s something about them that is so revealing. I’ve been consistently doing this routine for about 9 months now, so I thought I’d share it with you all.
My morning changes slightly depending on whether I work out at the gym or run outside, but below is my typical weekday morning on the days that I run outside (which right now is most days).
5:20: Wake up & drink water [about 12 ounces]
5:30: Meditate for 10 minutes [I use the Insight Timer app]
5:40: Get dressed
5:50: Eat half a banana & warm up for the run [this is my warm up routine]
6:00: Run [3-7 miles, depending on the day]
7:00: Drink water [around 8 ounces] & stretch
7:10: Shower & get ready for work
7:40: Leave for work & eat a rice cake and some dates along the way [I eat Lundberg brand rice cakes]
8:20: Eat breakfast [over night oats with almond milk, cocoa powder, cinnamon, 1/2 banana, berries, and almond butter; microwaved for a minute] & drink 12 oz coffee with around 1/2 cup soy milk
8:30: Check email/social media & read the news [I subscribe to the Skimm]
I also drink around 8-10 ounces of water throughout the remainder of the morning, but that’s pretty much it. I’m otherwise working at my desk.
