Morning Rituals

Morning Rituals...

I’m a morning person. I wasn’t always this way. In fact, before my son was born you’d be lucky to find me awake before one in the afternoon, but these days I cherish those early hours of the day. It’s that time I have to myself, before the little one wakes and the hustle and bustle of getting us all ready and out the door on time begins. It’s a time to reflect and prepare myself for whatever I may face throughout the day. It’s the time I figure most of the things floating around in my head out. It’s MY time.

My Morning Ritual...

6:00 a.m. I like to get up at least 30-45 minutes before my child does.


6:00-6:05 a.m. Put the kettle on and make my Lemon-Cayenne Water to jump start my metabolism. Try it! 

6:05-6:15 a.m. Sip and reflect. Be present. I ask myself: “What are your goals for today?”, “What do you want to accomplish?” Be positive, it sets the tone for the rest of the day.


6:15-6:45 a.m. Finally, I do a few light yoga sequences, just to fully wake up my body and mind. Like this!

Your Morning Ritual...

I challenge you to try this, or find your own ritual to do, every morning for the next week. Maybe you might want to incorporate the last 20-30 minutes to meditation, or a full on at-home workout. Whatever it is, give yourself that time where you don’t have to worry about anyone but yourself. I promise it’ll make such a difference. You might just end up keeping your morning ritual forever! Give yourself that time. You deserve it, mama!
