When I first started working from home, I decided to take the opportunity to create a morning routine. I had visions of waking up early to journal in bed, hopping in the shower, going through a multistep skin-care routine, and blending up a green smoothie before sitting down at my desk.

Spoiler alert: none of those habits stuck, but I did come up with my own version of a morning routine that helps me start each day feeling calm, confident, and ready to take on the day. Though none of my daily habits are revolutionary, they all have one thing in common — they make me feel like my best self.
