Do Tell: What Does Your Morning Routine Look Like?

Last week I asked you all about your weekly rituals, either with your friends or alone. But this morning, as I was doing the same thing I do every morning, I got to thinking about daily routines. Without even realizing it, I seem to have a formula in place for everything from the way I shampoo to which foot I put my shoe on first! I know that I'm a creature of habit, but even you're not, do you have a morning routine, too? If so, tell us about it!

Get up at 6am, :) brush my hair, wash my face the first time, put on moisturizer. Wake up hubby, make breakfast and make lattes. Put on clothes and get gym bag ready. Brush teeth. Drive my hubby to work, on the way back I drive to gym, change and work out - it's 8 am now. Work out for an hour or hour and a half. Then drive home, and take a shower: wash my hair, then wash my face (in the shower), then condition my hair, wash my body, shave, rinse out conditioner. Towel dry, put hair in towel, moisturize my body and my face. Put on undies, do my makeup: foundation a bit of powder, eye makeup etc. Get dressed. Check email (I work from home with a 6 hour time delay to my actual workplace), do a bit of work from the night before. It's usually 10:30am my time now. Dry my hair, style it. Then I do errands etc, catch up on news, blogs. Sometimes I meet some friends for lunch, otherwise, clean house and stuff. At 3pm my time my actual workday starts, but because I did stuff in the morning already I am in good shape. It's a pretty relaxed routine in that sense, but that's only do to the 6 hour relay in terms of where I live now and where I work.

I don't have a fixed timetable because I'm a student but usually I wake up 30 minutes before my schedule. It's the perfect time for everything. I turn on the TV to watch the news and the weather, go to the bathroom, brush my teeth and wash my face. I get dressed because I usually choose them the night before. Sometimes eat sth because i don't like to eat the morning and that's it :)i'm ready to go to college, since i live really nearby.

Forgot to add between "breakfast" and "turning on laptop" that I make a cup of either green or white tea; sometimes I bother to squeeze a lemon into the tea (depending on how lazy I am.)

Brush teeth, wash face, do hair, makeup, start the hot water for coffee, go pee, put clothes on, pour the hot water into the French press, make breakfast, then set everything on the table, push down the French press, and do some internet activities while eating and having my coffee. EXACT same routine every single day. I'm so boring :P

I wish I had more time in the morning to relax, but I just can't wake up early enough (peel myself out of bed) to do things like watch the news, check my e-mail, sit down and eat breakfast, exercise, etc.I usually get out of bed between 8:00-8:15, then hop in the shower, pluck my eyebrows, put my contacts in, iron clothes, do hair, brush teeth, put makeup on, get dressed, and find my shoes (I can never find my shoes!). I usually grab an energy drink or diet soda and a nutrition bar on my way out the door around 8:30 to get to work by 9:00. I am going to have to make a major changes in my routine because I will be starting back at school full-time (including a lecture before work - MWF from 8:00-8:50) and working full-time (9:00-5:00). I know that part of my change will have to be getting things organized the night before and going to sleep at a decent time, which is something I have a hard time doing.

Hmmm...ok. I wake up @ 6:30 am and jump in the shower. I wash my hair, wash my body, shave my legs, condition my hair and rinse! I then brush my teeth and wash my face (cleanser/toner and moisturize). Get my clothes on, I iron if I need to. Try drying my hair which takes a lifetime (20 min). Then let my hair finish air drying out (I have super straight hair by the way) while I put on my make up which is bareminerals, eyeshadow, mascara, and eyeliner. Make sure my hair is done & good to go. Done by 7:30. Grab some coffee and a cereal bar and I'm out the door by 7:35 am. I want to be able to have a good breakfast by I just cannot manage to get up earlier.

According to a piece called THE EUREKA HUNT in last week's New Yorker,the best time to get new ideas is immediately upon awakening. New, crazy ideasoccur because parts of the brain are still asleep and major ALPHA wavesare happening.Grab 'em while you're Alpha-ing!
