My Morning Routine: Day 1 Update

Morning Routine Update

How did your morning routine go this morning? If it didn’t go as planned, don’t feel badly because I didn’t do that well, either. 🙂

Here’s how my morning went:

Got up at 6:30 a.m. — yup, I had every intention of getting up at 5:30 a.m., but it just didn’t happen!

Morning Routine Update

Read my Bible, wrote in my blessings journal, and started a load of laundry.

7:00 a.m. — I got a little distracted checking email for 15 minutes (bad girl, I know!).

7:20 a.m. — Silas got up and I helped him take a bath, get dressed, and ready for his soccer camp this morning.

Morning Routine Update

After that, I set up the diffuser with Peace & Calming & Lavender… I love diffusing these two oils together! So soothing and refreshing!

7:35 a.m. — I headed down to the garage to get in a quick run on the treadmill while Jesse made breakfast (bacon & eggs this morning — yum!)

Morning Routine Update

{I snapped this picture, because I thought it was a great example of what I’ve been learning in life over the past few years. Sometimes, it’s okay to be happy with just getting a job done, even if it’s not close to perfect. I can stress over having things perfect or I can give myself grace and just do the best I can do!}

7:45 a.m. — After running, I packed a quick lunch for Silas and got him out the door with Jesse. And then I ate breakfast, cleaned up our room, made our bed, switched the laundry, and cleaned up the kitchen while the girls got around and ate breakfast.

Then it was 8:30 a.m. and time to tackle my morning computer work.

So yes, my morning didn’t really follow my Planned Morning Routine, but I did get a good start on the morning. And I’m hopeful that tomorrow will be even better. I’ll let you know how it goes tomorrow. 🙂

Morning Routine Update

I’m off to watch a movie and fold this pile of laundry with the kids. I hope you have a great afternoon!

My New Morning Routine (er, at least, the PLANNED routine!)

My Planned Morning Routine

Whew! It’s been a busy morning! We had soccer camp for Silas, swimming lessons for Kathrynne, and Kaitlynn had to get a tooth pulled at the dentist (poor girl!).

I promised you that I’d post my planned new morning routine for June this morning. And well, it’s not morning still, but I figured you all would understand that life just happens like that sometimes!

In between the busyness of the morning, Jesse and I had a chance to talk about our morning routine, though, and here’s what we came up with:

My Planned Morning Routine

5:30 a.m. — Up, read Bible, pray

6:00 a.m. — Run, shower, dress (start laundry)

7:15 a.m. — Breakfast, Family Bible Time, read 1-2 chapters aloud to kids

8:00 a.m. — Morning Cleaning Time — make bed, straighten room, switch laundry, help clean up kitchen, load dishwasher

8:30 a.m. — Computer Time

In an effort to be consistent and follow through with this plan, I’m going to be brave and post an update around noon each week day for the next week (and possibly longer if I’m still struggling with the routine after the first week!) to let you know how my morning routine went that day. I’d love to have you join me and let us know how you’re doing, too!

Today’s Project

Come up with a simple morning routine and post it in the comments below. Then, come back here every week day around noon for the next week to let us know how your morning routine is going. Let’s all encourage each other to be more intentional and make the most of our mornings!
