I love reading about other bloggers’ morning routines. This inspired me to share my own. My morning routine changes throughout the year, depending on if a semester is in session. I’ll share my current morning routine. This routine is more relaxed now that my summer season is here.
6:30 A.M. | Publish blog posts + Tend to cat
I hit ‘publish’ on each blog post at 6:30 local time. My cat tends to wake me around this time each morning, so I naturally wake up. I feed him and sort through any other needs he may have. He settles back into bed with me. I’ll briefly check social media. I make note any comments or notifications that I need to respond to.
8:30 A.M. | Post on social media
I schedule my social media posts at 8:30 AM daily. Scheduling my posts saves time and effort. By this time, I’m ready to take on the day ahead. I spend about a half hour responding to comments, posting, and scrolling through my feed.
9: 30 A.M. | Get out of bed + Make breakfast
I coax myself out of my warm bed. Anyone who knows me will know that I am consistently cold. It often requires some effort to leave the warmth. I throw on a robe and slippers before heading to the kitchen. I brew coffee and whip up something for breakfast. The coffee provides an energy boost for the day. My typical meals include: A smoothie, an omelette, or a bagel with cream cheese.
10 A.M. | Check e-mail + Monitor blog post
With breakfast in my stomach, I settle in to my laptop. The first thing I do when I sit is respond to any e-mails in my inbox. I read any newsletters I’m subscribed to. Light reading in the morning keeps me focused. I monitor the status of my blog post and respond to comments on the post. I also begin drafting the next post.
I like to keep my routine quick and simple. What does your morning routine look like?
