My morning ritual is a stable one.
First, I make some oatmeal with almond butter and chia seeds ( or some other healthy source of protein and fat depending on recent grocery store sales), almond milk, and frozen fruit. I microwave the fruit to warm it up and I weigh myself while everything cooks
While I’m eating breakfast, I log into Duolingo and practice Spanish for about five minutes.
Once breakfast is finished, I do half an hour of some sort of exercise.
Depending on the day, it might be strength training, yoga, dancing, or jogging/ walking in place inside. It’s dark outside in the morning now, and the streets are often slick with snow or ice as well.
I strongly prefer morning workouts because they get my blood pumping and wake up my mind for the day. It’s also nice to check that box off of your to-do list. With sunset happening so early at this time of the year and the cold, slippery conditions popping up outside as autumn turns into winter, it can be really hard to convince myself to exercise after dark when I’m sleepy. So this way I don’t have to exercise again at night if I don’t want to.
A shower is generally necessary after my workout, so that happens along with brushing my teeth, changing clothes, etc.
And then I turn on my light therapy lamp and begin my workday, so what happens after that depends on my schedule for that particular day.
