Morning Ritual

Hey!

It’s a gloomy morning around my area, which might explain why I got up fairly late today. 9 AM I think is considered early for a lot of teenagers on summer break, but I love mornings, and I wanna get the party started ASAP!

I’ve developed a regular little routine for my mornings that stays pretty much the same throughout the summer and school year. The difference?

Summer:ย Ahh, what can I do today? :)

School year:ย Why am I up? I have 5 minutes to catch the bus. Ugh I gotta go get my socks.

Either way, this morning routine makes things much better. So after I roll out of bed and wash up, here’s how I groove:

Say hello to He who made the new day.

Breakfast. Favorite meal of the day!ย Today was a big bowl of Greek yogurt, banana slices, strawberries, chia seeds, a drizzle of agave, and of course, a spoonful of Naturally Nutty Vanilla Sunflower Seed Butter. Must have nut or seed butter.

Reading food blogs, especially Kath Eats Real Food, has definitely made me a breakfast enthusiast. I am ALL over the oats, pancakes, yogurt bowls, and cereals. I know, I know…I’m just another one of those conformist bloggers that hoards bananas and nut butters. I won’t argue. Because it’s true.

Check email, blogs, and social media. Typical.

For quite a while now, I’ve been eating breakfast standing up. Not only to get a view of the TV, but also because I like to get off my butt when I can, especially if I’m going to be sitting at school all day. I feel like standing also helps my posture and keeps me just a liiiitle more awake than sitting (that may or may not be true). Here’s actually an interesting article about excess sitting that I recently read: Sitting is the New Smoking

Watch the Today Show. A little bit o’ news. A little bit o’ culture.

Random find: You can watch pandas live on the internet. I just discovered this about 2.5 seconds ago thanks to the Today Show.

Down the vites. Calcium and vitamin D. The gummies aren’t a chore though ;)

Andddd then I get started with some other things! Blogging right now obviously. Also on the to-do list: exercise, pack for Canada (on the roadย again!), and start my second summer reading book<–Last year of this!

See you this afternoon!

Let me know: What are some things you do in your “morning ritual”? What did you have for breakfast?

  1. I just woke up, typical. I got dressed, and now I am going to eat brunch somewhere. We don’t know yet! Haha. I don’t really have a morning ritual. It needs to be different everyday for me haha… Oh! And I haven’t even finished my first book. That’s not good!
