I am a routine person through and through. My mornings typically look the same during the week. I love seeing what people’s morning/evening routines look like so today I am sharing my 2019 morning routine! If you don’t have a morning routine maybe this will give you some ideas!
2019 Morning Routine
Andrew’s alarm goes off around 5:15 during the week and while I don’t jump out of bed then I’m pretty much up. I spend about 30ish minutes watching the news in bed with him or scrolling through my phone. I feel like some mornings especially since I have been pregnant I have had a much harder time getting out of bed first thing.
Once I am up I wash my face, do my skincare routine, brush my teeth, throw my hair up, and get dressed-usually in workout clothes. Then I take my medicine and drink a HUGE glass of lemon water. I find that drinking a huge glass of water first thing really sets my body right for the day. I also take pretty much all medicines in the morning (prenatal vitamins, Vitamin D, anti-nausea medicine, thyroid medicine, and a probiotic). For the last 4 years I have been taking Align every single day. Being super in tune to my health I know that certain supplements and vitamins really help my body. Taking a probiotic is so important for me and keeping my gut health in check. Align has a patented probiotic strain Bifidobacterium 35264™ that can’t be found in other probiotics, including store brands. You only need to take one a day, and I tend to keep mine in the original packing until I take it. For best results that’s what it says to do. Align helps promote and support a healthy digestive system*. Something that is so important but especially important to me during pregnancy. I have checked with my personal OB but always check with yours first! Align partnered with leading gastroenterologists, authorities in digestive health, to identify the best probiotic strain to help with occasional digestive upsets.* Basically you know it’s great! To get the most benefits from Align you want to take it every single day, not just when you feel like you need the balance.
After I take my medicine I sit with my breakfast and laptop at our island and do some work while I eat. Liam is usually up shortly after so I get him up and he has breakfast. Then we play for a bit in the playroom before it’s time to get dressed and ready for school.
Once I drop him off at school I head to either the gym or a barre class. I don’t have any coffee until after my workout since I can only have one a day. It’s my treat! I usually spend the rest of the morning working. I feel like my mornings fly by and before I know it, it’s time to go get Liam (the best part of my day).
What does a typical morning routine look like for you? Do you take a daily probiotic?
