My Morning Routine

Lately I’ve been waking up early (5:30am), because I traveled to London for a couple of weeks to lead a retreat, and my sleep schedule shifted. I really enjoy it!

Someone asked me recently what my morning routine is like, and I told them: It changes regularly, depending on what I need.

That said, I haven’t shared my morning routine in awhile, so I’ll share it here. Please remember that this routine is provisional — it will change when I need it to.

Here’s what I’ve been doing lately:

I used to do some movement (like exercise or yoga) here, but lately I’ve been waiting until mid-morning to move my body, and then late afternoons for harder workouts or runs.

I change my morning routine (and wakeup time) to fit my needs in different seasons. Some seasons require more quietude and reflection, others more activity and focus, others more mindfulness and movement. The morning routine should serve the needs I have at the time.

I hope this helps! Wishing you beauty and wonder in your mornings as well.
