Last week, Dorothy posted about a day in her life, and it inspired me to create a new series about my routines and "how I do it" (hence the name of the series!) Maybe I'm just nosey, but I find these kinds of posts really interesting!
Even though I don't start class at the same time every day, I try to wake up at the same time every day. Not only does this help my body to become used to a routine, it makes the actual getting out of bed much easier. Even though we're only three weeks into the semester, my body is already waking up around 7:40 without an alarm clock. Of course there are some days when I have to wake up a bit earlier if I have an early morning meeting or need to finish up some last minute work, but with my current course load and commitment schedule, I've found 7:40 to be a pretty good base wake up time.
I try to prepare for the morning the night before by putting my books out on my desk or right into my backpack, picking out an outfit or two, and making sure that all of my electronics are plugged in to charge. This alleviates a lot of the stress and time-consuming activities in the morning so that I can wake up a bit later and quickly get ready for my day.
What do you do in your morning routine to keep your mornings peaceful?
