Every good morning routine starts with getting up and taking on the day.
I’m not going to lie, my morning routine on the weekends is way different than my weekday routine. What I’m doing during the week is completely different than what I am doing on the weekends. The weekends are my days off and I refer to them as the days that I want to be lazy and will be lazy on but still get things done.
Even though the weekends are when I have a day off, I don’t sleep them away. At least, not anymore. And, you shouldn’t either. I did sleep them away in the past, I’m talking sleeping until noon and feeling like I lost my day.
Can you think about all the work you can get done during the weekend that your work might steal from you? Need to hang a shelf that you bought in October and it’s just sitting on the floor? Do it on the weekend. Need to clean the baseboards? Do it on the weekend. There are so many things that could and should be done during the weekend.
You don’t need to be a morning person to have a morning routine, remember that.
How are you going to change this?
How are you going to implement a morning routine during the weekends?
You don’t need to be an early riser to kick off a morning routine. You could wake up at 5:30 AM and still not be considered an early riser — it’s all about how you see yourself. I’m not an early riser. Most people would not consider an 8:30 AM or 9:30 AM an early wake-up.
You just need to create a routine that helps you get through your day. What do your weekends usually compose of? And, what do you want to do on your weekends? Those are questions that you should focus on then you’ll figure out a strategy for errands and doing things you love all in one day.
It’s not doing it all but it’s doing all that you want to do. That’s how I see it. You just need to figure out how you want to spend your morning and how you want to jumpstart the day. Figure out how you want your mornings to go and a routine you want to implement in your life.
It’s time to challenge yourself.
The weekends are not all about doing nothing and we all figure that out on Sunday when the Sunday Scaries start popping up and we realize all that we didn’t do.
I’m not going to tell you how your morning routine should go but I will give you ideas on things to add to your routine.
How to create your morning routine:
Wake up a little bit earlier.
Life could be just a bit easier if we woke up earlier than our usual scheduled wake-up call. Some of us might feel that way and others don’t. I feel like if I were to get out of bed a little bit earlier, I could accomplish maybe one or two things before starting off my day. That is how I feel about being an early riser. I’m not saying you should become an early riser or to wake up before the sun comes up but getting out of bed before lunch/brunch hours could help out here and there.
You don’t need multiple alarms, trust me that’s not going to help you out when it comes to quality sleep. Set one alarm and make yourself get up. Start it off by moving your alarm back thirty or so minutes. Don’t set a wake-up goal of 6 AM if you normally get up at 8 AM, that’s not going to help you out. And, make yourself work to turn the alarm off. Put it in your closet or in another room which will make you get up and move around to turn it off. Why do you need to do all of this? Your brain needs to wake up with you and you’re going to get your blood flowing by moving.
