This week on the HelloMornings site, we talked about our morning routine. It wasn’t until recently that I realized if I really wanted to start my mornings right, I would need to prepare the night before. Not having a plan in the morning, when my brain is still a little fuzzy, did not get me anywhere, even if I did wake up at the my target wake-up goal time. I’m very visual, so I put together a little page of my HelloMornings routine. I’m trying to have a day set aside for planning for my week and our meals (most likely Saturdays). So I don’t really plan too much in the mornings, besides just taking a look at our calendar to see what’s going on for the day.
Note: My mornings don’t always look like this. Some nights I am waken by sick kids, or kids just want to let me know it is raining outside, or a kid who wants me to bring them to the bathroom…
How does your morning routine look? What’s the first thing you do when you wake up? I should have included turn off alarm clock as my actual first thing, but oh well, there wasn’t anymore space on the page. 😉

Love the visual, Joyce!
My mornings generally begin with a repetitious prayer of “Lord help me, Lord help me…” 🙂
thenewbec, Yup, that’s how it starts here some days too. :p And He does help us! 🙂
Looks great!! I’d love that routine as well. I still haven’t been able to add in exercise yet. When my kids get a bit older I think a more thorough routine like this will be more attainable!
Nicole, Like I said, this is ideal. :p I rarely get around to doing much exercise in the morning. Anything that involves too much movement will wake the kids. haha!
I would love to know about #4 The Habit Workout. I’ve looked all around Kat’s webpage etc and can’t find anything on it. :o) Very nice visual of your morning routine. I’ve got to get mine on virtual paper soon and I’ll link up my routine as soon as I do.
Hi Paige, Glad to hear from you. The Habit Workout can be found in Kat’s Maximize Your Mornings ebook. Let me know if you still aren’t able to see it. http://inspiredtoaction.com/ebook/
