My Morning Routine for a Happy and Productive Day

Establishing a morning routine HAS BEEN LIFE-CHANGING!

I am much more productive, I am happier and I feel less stressed. 

Believe it or not…I ACTUALLY want to wake up in the morning and look forward to my day. 

Having a morning routine also is a great way to add self-care into my day.

I technically have two routines: one for heading into work and one for the weekend.

Below I have shared both morning routines.

If you want to learn more about WHY and HOW to create a morning routine, check out my post that provides step by step instructions and tips on how to create a healthy morning routine.

My Workday Morning Routine

6:15 – 6:25 – AM Wake Up 

I set my alarm at 5-minute intervals just to make sure I don’t sleep through one of them. I also try to not hit snooze.

6:25 – Check on Cats Water/Food

I always make sure the cats have food and water as soon as I get out of bed.

6:30 – Drink Water, Brush Teeth, & Take Supplements

I drink 8 – 16 ounces of water EVERY morning.

This has been really helpful with waking me up as being dehydrated can make you feel groggy and tired.

Instead of reaching for coffee I HIGHLY recommend drinking water first.

Next, I take my probiotic, D-Mannose and allergy medication.

Recently, I added Dram CBD drops into my routine. I take a dropper full and place it under my tongue and then drink water to wash it down. 

Then I brush my teeth and pull my hair back.

My Morning Routine for a Happy and Productive Day

6:35 – 10 Minute Yoga

If I wake up early enough I try to get 10 minutes of yoga in.

This has been the hardest part of my routine and it’s still a work in progress. 

I use the yoga app on my phone because they have a super simple 10 minute morning yoga sequence. 

6:45 – Shower

After yoga, I hop in the shower so I can get ready to head into work. 

Shower time is also where I go over what I need to get done that day in my head.

It’s my time to give myself a pep talk to get me in a positive mindset for the day. 

7:05 – Skincare

After the shower, I follow up with my skincare routine which consists of the following:

  • Moisturizer
  • Eye Cream
  • Sunscreen
  • Body Lotion

I keep my skincare routine very simple.

I also don’t wear makeup so this helps save me time in the morning 

7:10 – Hair 

I am VERY low maintenance so doing my hair comes down to throwing some product in and that’s it.

No blow-drying, straightening or styling. 

7:15 – Get Dressed

At this point, I start getting dressed.

I use the Cladwell closet app that takes all of your clothing items and pairs them together to style outfits for you. 

I try to plan ahead and do this the night before on the app.

Planning out my outfits for the day had been the MOST significant time-saver in my morning routine. 

7:25 – Grab My Stuff and Walk to the Trolley

After getting dressed I grab my lunch, jacket, and bag.

I say goodbye to my cats and head out the door to walk to the trolley to head into work. 

My Morning Routine for a Happy and Productive Day

My Weekend Morning Routine

During the weekend I like to take my time in the morning and enjoy myself. My boyfriend works most Saturdays so these are the mornings I really savor “me” time and practice self-care. 

6:30 – 7:00 – Wake Up

Since it’s Saturday I am not too strict with waking up. 

I try to wake up around 6:30 to keep my routine consistent with the rest of the week but sometimes I need the extra sleep.

Hang Out with Cats & Read 

Some mornings I really just enjoy laying in bed cuddling with my cats and reading. Or I will watch something on YouTube.

8:00 – Water, Supplements & Cats

Like my workday routines, I check on the cat’s food and water and then take my supplements and drink water.

8:10 – Coffee, Breakfast & Planner/Goals

When I’m at home, my favorite breakfast is Kodiak Cakes protein pancakes. They are so delicious! I make these and coffee.

Then I will sit down for breakfast and get out my planner.

I write down everything that I need to get done over the weekend and what I want to do for fun. 

Sometimes I will check on my finance or goal planner to update my progress.

9:00 – Yoga

After breakfast, I do a 20 – 30-minute yoga session. 

I really enjoy doing this after breakfast because I am more awake and can focus on my practice. 

9:30 – Shower – Get Ready

Once yoga is completed I brush my teeth and get in the shower. 

Afterward, I finish with skincare and hair just like my workdays.

Then I will get dressed. 

10:30 – Start My Day

At this point, my morning is over and I will start doing whatever I planned out that day. 


Hopefully, this has inspired you to create your own morning routine and helped to give you ideas on how to curate your mornings to include self-care and productivity!
