This post was inspired by a blog I read by the beautiful Connie of ‘a life of perfect days’ in which she talks about her new morning routine [read it here]. I find it fascinating to read about the goings-on of other people, particularly when it comes to routines and how they live their lives.
So I thought this morning I would share my morning routine with you all too. I follow [loosely] an ayurvedic routine, incorporating what I can and what works best for me into my daily routine.
So here goes:
5am – my Great Dane puppy Lara wakes me up every morning, I rarely need an alarm clock these days.
Jump out of bed, walk upstairs and feed two [of my three] dogs
Brush my teeth and use my tongue scraper
Drink a glass of warm - hot-ish water
Prepare my breakfast, and lunches for my husband and myself
5:40am – take my doggies out for their morning walk
6am - drink my ayurvedic herbs
Morning run around for 20 minutes: tidy up, last minute ironing, make the bed, etc.
Drink my goats milk and Avaydec Imperial [herb jam] mix
Feed my third dog [he’s fussy and likes to eat later in the morning. Seriously.]
Shower and get dressed for the day
7:10am – At my desk ready to work!
This is my general routine. Every other day my husband walks the dogs, so I either [naughtily] sleep in until 5:30am, potter around the house a little longer or meditate for 20-30 minutes.
We would love to hear about your morning routine so please leave a comment below and share how your morning flows and any tips for making your routine work for you.
