My Morning Routine ( For #WAHM/#SAHM )

This post contains affiliate links. I receive a small commission if you click or purchase anything.
If you follow me along on my Insta Stories you'll see that I share my schedule with you to keep myself accountable for what I'm doing for that day ( and also because many of you admitted to being nosey and like to see what I'm up too! ) A question that keeps coming up now that I'm a SAHM/WAHM is what my morning routine is like.

Let me share by saying that even before kids I've always been a morning person. The morning was my oyster to beat the clock and get everything done off my to do list before 10am if I could. I loved being able to get items finished so I could enjoy the rest of the day and still attempt to do it to this day in my early 30's.

One thing really always helps my morning routine go smoothly is setting everything up the night before. This means I put my work out clothes near my bed to put on the second my alarm goes off, setting out my water, weights and yoga mat in front of the TV to start my work out and prep breakfast for myself, the kids and the husband.

The mornings can be super chaotic and without doing this small prep work at night, it really helps me focus on what's important in the morning when I get up. Of course, not all mornings start this way of course because #Kids and if you have ones that are like yourself ( aka my daughter gets up at 6am ready to go ) I like to at least get something checked off my list before the chaos begins.

My favorite items are below!



5-6am: I wake up to my alarm and grab my work out clothes. I'll change and then head downstairs to start my work out ( check my favorite ones here

6-730 : I chug a glass of water while the coffee brews and start to check my emails. Once the coffee is done I'll enjoy a cup in my favorite mug while writing down in my Gratitude Journal what I'm thankful for the day ( usually about 5 things per day ), and begin getting breakfast ready for the kids. Our favorites are overnight oats, pancakes or eggs and avocados. Lily usually comes down around 6:15/6:30 and Landon will wake up around 7am. Both kids eat and then we get dresses upstairs, brush our teeth and come back down.
7:30-8: I usually am double checking what we have for the car ie a water bottle for the kids, snacks for later if we have errands to run after school, making sure backpacks, coats and shoes are out for them to reach in their locker 

The rest of the morning is driving to school, getting errands done and getting work done but that's usually my morning. Tell me what is your morning like?

  1. Yeti makes some good products. Kinda expensive and we had something that took forever to get replacement part. Still make good products.

  2. I am so out of it in the mornings. My alarm is off at 6 and then it's a whirl of getting the kids out the door to the bus stops. I am not with it until after 12 so I ask people to not start convos with me until then, if possible.

  3. I get up at 6:15am and then I'm out of the house by 6:22, but I miss a good morning routine. I loved having the time for myself.

  5. I'm a morning person too and now that I'm an empty nester (where did the time go?) I start my day off early in the morning with a good workout and a huge bottle of water. I like to get it over and done with. Then it's a shower, coffee (YAY), daily devotions/affirmations and then my work day begins.

  6. I get up at 4 AM Monday Wednesday Friday and go to the gym. If I try to do it at home I won't so I need to make myself go to the gym. I could use a couple cups of coffee before I go sometimes LOL.

  9. I wish I was a better morning person. I have always been a night owl and prefer going for walks or working out in the evening. Other than that my morning is pretty similar to yours. Those school days are always hectic.

  10. I am SO not a morning person, but sticking to routines definitely helps make it easier.

  11. I am only a morning person when I'm at the beach. I get up early then to watch the sunrise, otherwise I'm a nightowl. When my kids were small, I had to get up early enough to get them out the door and myself off to work, and it was a struggle some days.

  12. My day always starts with coffee as soon as the kids are off to school. I love my Yeti tumbler btw.

  13. Wow, you start your day early! I need to discipline myself and do work outs in the morning too.

  14. WOW you start your day SUPER early lol I can't. I wish I was still a morning person but I'm such a night person instead.

  15. I like that you talked about getting organized the night before. I find that the days I don't do that, those mornings are so much more chaotic or I might forget something I needed to bring with me as I rush out the door. I love you write in your gratitude journal in the morning too! Great start to the day! --Paige Bainbridge (paigebainbridge.com)
