During the week, my morning routine is a mess…I don’t even consider it a routine since I’m usually rushing to get ready for school.
While I definitely need to work on my morning routine during the week, I must say that I do have a pretty solid one for the weekend.
I wanted to share a glimpse into what my weekend morning routine looks like. I love to devote time to self-care and relaxation as my weeks almost always end up being so busy and exhausting.
Contrary to the popular saying, “A Sunday well spent brings a week of content,” I think that a weekend well-spent can do just the same!
Wake Up- 10:00 A.M.
Depending on how tired I am from the week, my wake-up time varies. I’ve found that on most weekends, my body typically wakes up around 10-10:30a.m so that’s when I like to start my day.
I usually lay in my bed, grab my phone from my night stand and go through my e-mails, my personal and blog Instagram accounts, read my daily bible verse and check out a few new YouTube videos that have been posted from the channels I’m subscribed to.
I know, grabbing your phone first thing in the morning is not the best habit to have, but I’m just keeping it real (and am working on it!)
Morning Skin Care
When I finally feel ready to get out of bed, I head to my bathroom to brush my teeth and wash my face. Below is what my current morning skincare lineup looks like!
Breakfast – Avocado Toast & Eggs
I’m 100% a breakfast girl and cannot start my day without it. I love it so much that sometimes I’ll crave breakfast for dinner and have that instead of a normal dinner meal!
I’ve been eating a lot of avo toast lately and I’m not mad about it. I use Ezekiel bread for my toast, a half of an avocado from Trader Joe’s and put everything but the bagel seasoning on top. If I’m up for it, I’ll add an egg on top! I either eat this with a side of hot tea or a glass of cold water.
Catch Up, Plan, Read…
One of the reasons why I love the weekend so much is that it gives me time to breathe. I don’t feel obligated to rush or get assignments/work tasks done for the following day and actually have a bit of time to plan out the rest of the month and start some things I want to get ahead of.
Even though I recommend giving yourself at least a day or a few hours off from working on anything during the weekend, I can’t help but feel a little motivated knowing that I have more free time to do so!
After doing a little bit of catching up on some school assignments and work, I love to wind down by either reading, writing in my journal or planning content for my blog (this may be considered working, but to me it’s so much fun to do!).
This all takes place in my breakfast nook where all the amazing natural sunlight comes in. Being in this environment makes me feel so inspired and happy.
After a bit of R&R, I like to do a quick and easy workout.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that my latest obsession has been jump roping. I usually like to run, but sometimes it’s fun to switch things around!
Working out for as little as 30 minutes is an instant mood-booster and I highly recommend incorporating this into your morning routine if you’re not already!
Get Ready For The Day
After I’ve completed a work out, I officially get ready for whatever the day has planned. I am such a huge homebody, but even if I’m not going out, I still like to dress in comfortable clothes as it makes me feel good in general.
What’s something you can’t go without doing in the morning?
