Hope you all are doing well during these crazy times! For today’s blog post I thought I would show y’all what my daily morning routine looks like during quarantine. I know that for everyone it’s been getting harder & harder to stay productive during these times, so use this blog post as inspiration to get out of bed today & get something accomplished. On that note let’s get my morning started…
I usually wake up around 8:00 a.m with the sun shining through my curtains. I know I was just talking about trying to be productive, but that still doesn’t mean that I can always immediately get out of bed! I’m not gonna lie, I typically watch an episode of All American, Dawsons Creek, or YouTube videos before I even take try to step out of my bed. Once I finally take that first step though I head to the bathroom to do my morning skincare routine & brush my teeth. In case you’re curious my current skincare routine has consisted of 3 products that I 10/10 recommend.
- Kiehls cucumber herbal conditioning cleanser
- SkinCeuticals Vitamin C serum
- Kylie Skin face Moisturizer
Post skin care I head downstairs to my kitchen and drink a big glass of water since they say the best way to stay healthy is to stay hydrated, so if you haven’t had water yet today STOP READING and go get a big cup of agua, add a lemon if you’d like, and drink up! Next, I go and take my vitamins. My fam and I love the brand Olly, I take the women’s multi vitamins & probiotic vitamin, and I really feel like I notice a difference in my health by taking them. Recently, I’ve added elderberry immune vitamins & Vitamin D to my collection! If your interested in starting to take vitamins during quarantine but don’t wanna go out, amazon sells all of the Olly vitamins! (Here’s the link)
Now it’s time for my fav part of the whole day… Breakfast! It’s become my favorite meal of the day. Today, I had 2 rice cakes. One had peanut butter with bananas and the other had Nutella with raspberries on it. This has been my go to breakfast, but I also like making avocado toast, eggs, and English muffins. Once I thoroughly enjoy my food I make an iced coffee or a chai tea latte. Going into quarantine my mom surprised me with a milk throther which I’ve been wanting for so so long which has now turned me into a barista. I used to get Starbucks a lot but now I couldn’t tell ya the last time I’ve had it! Let’s just say my milk throther is getting it’s moneys worth lol.
By now it’s around 9:30ish which means I need to start doing my online school (ugh). The one thing that quarantine has taught me is that I could never handle doing online school 24/7. I get bored sooooo easily & I have no one to talk to which is a problem because I’m a very chatty person! With that in mind I try to get my work done as quickly as I can, so I can keep my day rolling! Sometimes if I feel like I need a break though, I do a work out between classes.
Staying active is very important during quarantine because we don’t even realize how much physical activity we usually would do in a day. Whether it was walking from class to class at school or after school activities we get a lot of steps in. I know it’s hard to stay motivated but I keep this quote I saw on Pinterest in mind “Be Addicted to Bettering Yourself”. My workout of choice has been running usually, but if I wanna do something a little more fun, here are some fitness YouTube channels I like:
By this point it’s lunch time which means my morning routine has come to an end. I hope you all enjoyed my QuaranTEEN morning routine! As a little bonus here is a little video of what I did on the day I wrote this post, so sit back, enjoy, stay safe, and I’ll talk to y’all soon.
