5 "Me-Time" Morning Routine Ideas for Women:
Don’t Pick Up the Phone
Your phone is not just a distraction, but it can also expose you to potential stressors, like your bank-account balance or emails from work that might demand your attention right away. We’re all pretty much plugged to the phone all day, so why not delay the need to spend your morning really waking up to a brand-new start with no stress worthy routines. Your mornings should be time spent on yourself, calming your thoughts, and getting ready for the day ahead. So, stop picking up the phone the minute you wake up and start a mindful practice like meditation or simply sit for a few minutes taking in the joys of just being alive and healthy.
Clear Your Mind
Whether its meditation or just breathing deeply for a few minutes, wake up and sit someplace quiet for a few minutes to literally clear out all that’s cropping up. You have the rest of the day to worry. So, your mornings should be spent in quiet contemplation and gratitude. This will help you relax and feel more positive throughout the day. Anytime you feel your mind is wandering off to things that are stressful, just breathe deeply and turn your focus on your breath.
Get Some Alone Time Outside
Step outside just for a few minutes to breathe in the sunshine and watch the sky or to listen to the birds chirping. Even if you live in a city there should be some greenery someplace that you can go to and just watch nature. Not possible to step outside? Just sit in your balcony or look out the window for a few minutes as you sip your morning drink. The magic of a sunrise is deeply satisfying to watch, and it also helps reduce anxiety.
Turn on Your Morning Playlist
Music is uplifting and relaxing, so make a playlist of your favourite songs and listen to it in the morning. It could be something upbeat or calming, whichever you prefer. You could listen to it while you’re cooking or while eating your breakfast or on your way to work.
Make It Creative
When you do something fun, silly, and creative in the morning, you give your mind a break right at the start. Whether it’s solving a puzzle while you sip your coffee or knit before you leave for work, you could choose to do anything that makes you happy. A morning me-time routine is oddly satisfying because it gives you a sense of happiness knowing that your day is focused on you, and you are entitled to a relaxing break at any time of the day. Doing something you enjoy early in the day helps you validate your self-worth as it reminds you to focus on your well-being before everyone else’s. Even if it’s only for few minutes make it a point to start a creative routine that you enjoy and do it without rushing and worrying about your daily grind.
From writing your to-do list to exercising or trying out a new breakfast recipe, there a number of things you can do to really make your mornings your own. Waking up to a relaxing day with these 5 morning routines ideas is possible if you make it an intentional practice. When you choose to start your day without anxiety and do something that’s deeply satisfying your mind will learn to accept that as a part of your routine. A morning well-spent in relaxing calmness is a precursor to the rest of your day, so make it a point to enjoy the solitude before the rest of the household wakes up and demands your time and focus.
