My Morning Routine | Spring 2018

My mornings are one of my favourite times of the day. The sun is shining bright, the birds are singing, the squirrels are gathering their breakfasts of nuts we've left out for them, the bees are buzzing and the butterflies are fluttering - what more could anyone ask for? I love waking up super early and starting my day with a positive attitude and grateful thoughts, so I thought I would share with you my usual Spring morning routine which keeps my organised, motivated and positive.

| 5.30AM | Mornings start super early for me at half-five am as my husband's alarm clock goes off for work so that always wakes me up, not that I mind really as I get to have snuggles with our little pud Daisy. Once it gets to about six am I do a morning meditation and by six thirty I'm out of bed.

| 6.30AM | If it's a really sunny morning then I have an ice cold glass of water to wake me up and then will move on to a yummy morning cup of coffee whilst checking out the news. I'm not a massive fan of celebrity news so I will usually check my twitter moments news feed or watch Good Morning Britain to see and hear about what has been going on. I'll also be checking my to-do list or my diary to see what I'm going to be up to today too.

| 7.00AM | I'm the type of person who can't eat of a morning when I first wake up but by seven am I'll be hungry so it's breakfast time for me, then I'll have a refreshing morning shower (anyone else love morning showers?), do my morning facial routine, get dressed for the day, and put on some makeup - if I'm not going out for the day then I won't bother with makeup, but if I am going to be going out then I'll pop on some concealer, powder, mascara and a lip balm. I'll usually be listening to my Spotify playlist or a Be Inspired video on YouTube by now also.

| 8.30AM | By half eight I'll settle down with a drink and start catching up on my favourite blog posts via my blogger reading list.This is one of my favourite times of the morning as I love sitting reading about what everyone has been up to or what everyone has been loving lately, rooting for other bloggers is one of the best things ever you can do as a blogger!

| 9.30AM | Half nine usually rolls around pretty quickly and before I know it I'll be logging in to my inbox and replying to emails I've received overnight, there is usually between fifteen and twenty so once they're all replied to I will start blogging for the day; aka drafting, writing, scheduling, taking pictures, etc all of the good stuff that goes into being a blogger.

What is your usual summers morning like?

With love, Alisha Valerie. x

  1. Wow, thank you for sharing your morning routines! It inspired me of the things that I should be doing in the morning, instead of going back to sleep again �� I also love waking up in the morning and start being productive, and when I get up early I will feel guilty. I think I need to start making morning routines that eventually they'll become a habit :)x

  2. I love posts like this! Mornings are my favorite time as well and it's when I feel most productive. I also work nights,so my mornings are very relaxed and calm. I don't have to rush of if bed and off to work, and I prefer this type of schedule. Thank you for sharing
