Back to School Morning Routine | Start Your Morning Like a Boss
Before I begin to make it seem as if I have the most perfect mornings, I don’t. There was a point of time where I missed every alarm and decided to sleep in. Well anyways, I’ve had a big turn-around during my summer and Fall classes. In the summer, I commuted an hour to a Phlebotomy Certification class that started at 9am. Now I have 8am classes almost everyday. Between the two, I’m awake by at least 7:00am daily and no later than 6:30am for my 8:00am classes. Basically, I found something to wake me up in the morning. For me, it happens to be blogging and classes. We’ll all have a morning routine that works for us and is specific to our goals. I’ll go ahead and tell you the things that I do and you can choose to add to your routine if applicable. Hopefully you’ll see a few similarities AND differences. We obviously don’t have the same goals.
Revisit Your Planner
90% of my planner was completed on the first day of classes. This includes all assignments, tests, and quiz dates. Things that I write in along the way:
- Days to begin an assignment/studying
- and date of completion
During each morning, I write down my critical tasks. These are the things that I must get completed for the day. I start with these tasks before I move to something else that may be in my planner.
Do the Essentials
The first thing I do when I wake up is open my blinds (it helps to wake me up). Then, I check my text messages and social media. On a good day, I would do this after the other essentials (brushing my teeth, combing through my hair, etc.).
Well, I’m obviously a coffee girl. I’ve been drinking iced coffee lately, and for some reason it wakes me up more than hot coffee. I’m not sure if it has anything to do with science, but anyways. I haven’t always made breakfast but this has a positive effect on my morning routine. I go to class refreshed when I’m not hungry. I always eat a quick breakfast, such as a bagel and cream cheese, muffin, or fruit smoothie. This usually always holds me over until lunch.
Check Blog Comments // Edit Upcoming Posts
Sometimes, social media isn’t always for entertainment for me. I spend the time available in the morning replying to blog and social media comments. If I have a new post for the day, I would spend a few more times proofreading before I am ready to post it. Even though I’ve probably read for the 30th time. This happens to be my most favorite part of the mornings.
Now it’s time to go to class and BE A BOSS.
