My productive morning routine was one of the first posts I published on this blog back in April and is still one of my most popular posts to date.
Since everyone seemed to like my original post, I decided to write a new post with my updated morning routine.
My routine has changed since the start of lockdown as quite a few things have changed in my life since the start of lockdown.
Firstly, I graduated in July so I am no longer doing online uni. I am now working as a Marketing Intern from home 2 days a week and the rest of my week is spent blogging and doing an online course.
I still wake up early the majority of the week but I have started waking up later on the weekends as I began to burnout a bit.
Anyway, with that being said, I wake up at 6.30 am most days and have found a new morning routine that works really well for me.
I have always been a huge fan of morning routine and always preach about having one but I realised I was focussing too much on being productive rather than setting myself up for a good day.
As someone who suffers with a few mental illnesses, I need at least the first 30 minutes of the day to be mindful and focused on self-care – something I have only just worked out. Better late than never hey!

6.30am Wake Up
I set my alarm for 6.30am on my Fitbit which vibrates to wake me up. Sometimes, I manage to sleep through this alarm so I have a backup one on my actual alarm clock. Once my body is in a good rhythm I can wake up without an alarm but as I am just getting back into a consistent schedule, I need an alarm
The first thing I do before anything is drink some water and take my medication. This is extremely important because I need to hydrate and if I forget to take my meds, its not good! Taking the first thing is what works best for me trnal
Once I have managed to actually keep my eyes open for more than 30 seconds, I sit up in bed and grab my journal (which is always on my bedside table). The night before, I write the same headings my morning journaling sessions. These are:
- Dreams – I have very vivid dreams and I can remember them 99% of the time. That’s why I like to write them down as I believe our dreams tell us things.
- 3 Things Im Grateful For – I try to vary this everyday. There is so much to be grateful for and starting my day off noting some really boosts my mood.
- My Manifestations – I write the same 3 manifestations everyday. These are basically goals I have that I want to manifest so I write them in the present tense and try to visualise them.
- My Daily Intentions – I write down 3 daily intentions, these can be tasks I want to get done, something I want to feel, something I want to do etc. IT depends on my plans for that day.
I have started incorporating yoga into my spiritual morning routine because my back had been killing me recently. I have always loved yoga but I haven’t practiced it for a while so I am only doing beginner flows. I will either watch a youtube video or just intuitively move my body into poses that feel good.
I used to exercise in the morning but it felt more like a chore. The reason I switched to a more spiritual morning routine was so I could focus on doing things that made me feel good and to be honest exercising just doesn’t! I prefer to go on evening walks and do some boxing when I feel like it.
Meditation has become a necessity for me recently and I meditate everyday, morning and evening. I used to be someone who thought meditation was nonsense. However, I have noticed a big difference in my mood since meditating and it is one of my go-to self care ideas for depression!
I like to listen to guided meditations as I am still getting used to sitting in silence. My brain is constantly busy so I struggle to meditate properly without some guidance. But I am working on this and it is definitely a goal of mine for 2021.
I recently brought an acupressure mat from Amazon to try and help my back and its amazing! It has loads of benefits such as improving circulation, reducing tension, getting rid of migraines etc. It really gives me a boost of energy I need for the day!
Depending on the day, I will take a shower in the morning to freshen up and wake myself up.
Sometimes I prefer to shower as part as my evening routine so I skip this step and just chill, read or make some breakfast if I’m feeling hungry!
After I finish my spiritual morning routine, I sit down at my desk and start working. This is either blogging work or marketing work, depending on the day.
I will be working more hours this month so I will be working a lot more and will definitely be relying on my spiritual morning routine to keep me sane.
