It’s a gloomy morning around my area, which might explain why I got up fairly late today. 9 AM I think is considered early for a lot of teenagers on summer break, but I love mornings, and I wanna get the party started ASAP!
I’ve developed a regular little routine for my mornings that stays pretty much the same throughout the summer and school year. The difference?
Summer: Ahh, what can I do today?
School year: Why am I up? I have 5 minutes to catch the bus. Ugh I gotta go get my socks.
Either way, this morning routine makes things much better. So after I roll out of bed and wash up, here’s how I groove:
Say hello to He who made the new day.
Breakfast. Favorite meal of the day! Today was a big bowl of Greek yogurt, banana slices, strawberries, chia seeds, a drizzle of agave, and of course, a spoonful of Naturally Nutty Vanilla Sunflower Seed Butter. Must have nut or seed butter.
Reading food blogs, especially Kath Eats Real Food, has definitely made me a breakfast enthusiast. I am ALL over the oats, pancakes, yogurt bowls, and cereals. I know, I know…I’m just another one of those conformist bloggers that hoards bananas and nut butters. I won’t argue. Because it’s true.
Check email, blogs, and social media. Typical.
For quite a while now, I’ve been eating breakfast standing up. Not only to get a view of the TV, but also because I like to get off my butt when I can, especially if I’m going to be sitting at school all day. I feel like standing also helps my posture and keeps me just a liiiitle more awake than sitting (that may or may not be true). Here’s actually an interesting article about excess sitting that I recently read: Sitting is the New Smoking
Watch the Today Show. A little bit o’ news. A little bit o’ culture.
Random find: You can watch pandas live on the internet. I just discovered this about 2.5 seconds ago thanks to the Today Show.
Down the vites. Calcium and vitamin D. The gummies aren’t a chore though
Andddd then I get started with some other things! Blogging right now obviously. Also on the to-do list: exercise, pack for Canada (on the road again!), and start my second summer reading book<–Last year of this!
See you this afternoon!
Let me know: What are some things you do in your “morning ritual”? What did you have for breakfast?
