This year I have been doing my best with getting a solid routine down in the morning so I can move forward with my day efficiently. Since I am a freelancer, I often work from home. However, each day is different. I could be waking up as early as 5 am or I could be “sleeping in” until 7:30 am. No matter what time I get up, my morning routine is constant. I prioritize getting ready to hit the gym first thing in the morning. I know a lot of people struggle with motivating themselves to work out in the morning so today I am sharing my tips that help me get going!
Drink a cup of hot lemon water first thing in the morning. Lemons have a ton of benefits for your body and your skin. They are loaded with vitamin C and it gives your immune system a boost. It also helps with your digestion. And if you are blocked up, you will feel sluggish all day. A hot cup of lemon water solves that problem.
Change Into Work Out Clothes
I actually lay out my gym clothes every night so I see them first thing. That way I am not looking for a sock or a sports bra. Sometimes if I am waking up extra early, I will wear my gym clothes to bed (no kidding) so I don’t find an excuse to not hit the gym first thing in the morning!
Brush, Moisturize, Deodorize
Immediately after changing into my gym clothes, I brush my teeth, wash my face, apply moisturizer and deodorant. I have been using Dove products for as long as I can remember. I recently switched to their Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant which offers 48 hours of odor and wetness protection. I am a huge fan because of added skincare benefits with its NutriumMoisture formula which leave for softer, smoother skin. Also the scents are just amazing. My personal favorite is “Cool Essentials” which smells like a fresh cucumber! And after reading this review, I just had to make the switch!

And then I go forward with my morning workout at the gym! Pretty simple morning routine, right? It’s great to get into the habit of a solid routine so you can move forward with your day. What are some of your routines that help you get going in the morning?
