I often get asked to share some behind the scenes, especially when it relates to my routines. Trying not to disappoint, today I’m sharing my girl boss morning routine and secret morning productivity hacks. Are you ready to rise and shine?
Back in the day, I used to be able to do it all. I woke up with my feet on the ground and went non-stop all day long.
Cancer, Hashimoto’s, autoimmune disease and chronic fatigue left me not only with an empty tank but also an empty brain. I had to figure out how to start my day for optimal productivity and completely revamp my morning routine.
I’m grateful to work from home, which I know not everyone can do. Even still, this is the girl boss morning routine that helps me stay focused on the priority tasks.
Having a morning routine will help to set yourself up for the day and also focus on getting your priorities accomplished first before you run out of steam. I don’t know about you, but I’m all about stacking the cards in my favor!
Are you ready to go behind the scenes?
My Girl Boss Morning Routine
There’s always a sense of intrigue to see behind the curtain at what other people do. I’ll share my morning routine with you as an example. But here’s the thing… I’m me. You’re you. We have different lives. We have different schedules. This is more for fun, but you can always dive deeper with The Best Morning Routine Habits to Start Your Day.
Obviously, it’s nearly impossible to stick to this schedule 100% of the time. Some days I have a Chamber of Commerce breakfast or doctors appointment or hit the Commissary for groceries. But for the most part, I try to stick to this schedule the best that I can.
Hubby Carter is a retired Green Beret so he wakes up at 4:00 to run. I’m awake at 4:30 (I’m a morning person too). For the first 30-45 minutes I stay in bed and begin with Bible study, prayer, gratitudes, and meditation.
My morning meds are taken with 8 ounces of water, followed by brushing my teeth. Carter is usually back and showered by then, so we’ll chat while I make the bed and he gets dressed.
By 5:15 I head downstairs (still in my PJs) and listen to the Bible in One Year podcast while I heat water for tea, turn on my Light Therapy Lamp and the Essential Oil diffusers, and put the clean dishes away from the night before.
After Carter leaves for work, I switch over to another podcast while I start working. Right now I’m listening to either Amy Porterfield or James Wedmore. I have a list of routine tasks I do and check every morning for work, which takes about 30 minutes. Only after that is finished is when I check email for the first time. I’ll drink some green tea and also have a little bit of fruit just so my stomach isn’t empty when I exercise.
I’ll work until about 7:00 and then change out of my PJs and into workout clothes. Depending on the day, I go for a walk, do some yoga, or lift some small weights.
After a shower (and dry brushing before my shower!), I’ll eat breakfast which currently is a large plate of fruit and some of my favorite homemade Maca Matcha Chocolate Superfood Bars. Then I start cranking on the top priority task of the day. It’s now approximately 8:00.
So that’s it. It’s not super exciting, but it’s what I do and it works for me. It gets me started on the right foot, keeps me on task, and helps me to accomplish the most important priorities of the day.
I’ve included several resources below, but I do recommend that you read the complimentary article to this one, The Best Morning Routine Habits to Start Your Day.
