3 Reasons To Have Morning Rituals + My Own


ince college, I have been such a morning person! Being back in my bedroom feels amazing. I have my own space, without the worry of waking up my roommate. For some reason, I feel the need to be extra productive since my college will be all online come July. So now, I have been creating a few rituals that have been so good for me!! Here are a few reasons why I hope that you too can perfect your morning ritual, along with sharing my personal routine run-down!

Sets the tone for the day. 
This is my main reason for creating a morning schedule. It's amazing how I feel when I wake up knowing all that my day holds. One thing I add within my morning ritual down below is my gratitude journal. I've been trying so hard to use it regularly, and I'm loving the results!

Can spark creativity. 
When my room is clean, laundry is done, and emails are sorted, I can finally enjoy my day. Even if it's a simple act of being creative with my smoothie ingredients it then becomes a change of pace. I feel inspired best when my surroundings are clean and full of nature light!

Makes you more productive. 
An obvious one, I know, but waking up early and tackling a to-do list all before 11am in the summer is truly incredible. This really has surprised me being home, because sleeping in or taking a long shower is always nice, however, I feel that those two rituals are not helpful during the week.

                          My Personal Rituals!! 

1.  Make the bed.
2.  Take care of my dog.
3.  Start a load of laundry.
4.  Check emails.
5.  Get ready, be happy with outfit choice and hairstyle!
6.  Make a healthy breakfast.
7.  Listen to a podcast in between tasks.
8.  Do a devotional.
9.  Be creative. Watch a YouTube video while doing makeup or listen to music.
10. Write down 5 things in a gratitude journal.


  1. Such a great idea! I’m not a morning person at all so this is good for me to think about!
