Creating a simple, but powerful morning routine

As seasons of life shift, so do our morning routines. Maybe you have one, maybe you don’t, maybe you want a more set routine, or maybe you do better going with the flow. Regardless of what season you’re currently in, having habits we integrate into our mornings can help us set ourselves up better for our days. 

In today’s episode, Robin shares her current morning routine and the reasons why she prioritizes them in the morning. Whether you’re looking to make a new routine, want to switch yours up a bit, or you’re just getting started, this episode is packed with tangible and rejuvenating ideas.

    Tell me, what to do if you can’t force yourself to do exercises in the morning? I get up and I really feel very tired, I don’t want anything, and only at lunchtime I start to feel energized and start doing something. Or does it matter when I exercise? I just got used to doing it in the evening and after it I just have to rest and that’s it) But I also don’t really like it, then in the morning I’m very sluggish and constantly want to sleep

      Hi there! There’s really no one “right” time to exercise. It might be more difficult to get going in the morning, but you might find that you feel better after wards. We encourage you to experiment and find what works best for you and helps you feel your best! ?

    I wake up at 5 am and am at school by 6. Home by 4:30 or 5, so a morning routine is not possible. I prefer morning but it’s just not possible. Could I do this in the afternoon?

      Hi Alison! What works for one person doesn’t always work for another – so if mornings are challenging, we absolutely encourage you to experiment with developing an evening/afternoon routine that works for you! ?

    I previously stuck to an evening regimen because of time constraints.. However, ever since I changed my job and switched my exercise routine to morning, I got great results. Your episode is on point.. Thanks for sharing.

      It’s great that you’ve developed a routine that works well for you, Riya! ?

    Loved this podcast and although my season of life is much farther along than yours, we share very similar morning rituals including a spiritual time filled with meditation, prayer and journaling in a gratitude book. This is followed by a workout listening to a wonderful spiritual app and finishing the morning with your Pilates workout. I am on day 4 of the 5 day free trial classes and really enjoying them so far!
    Thanks Robin.
