My morning routine in a picture ☀️ +Step 1: Wake up and put a Progessence Plus drop on each of my inner forearms.
+Step 2: Roll Thieves on my feet.
+Step 3: Mix Ovasitol (supplement for my PCOS) with 8 drops vita D and 1 tsp magnesium in water, throw the multi vitamin, fish oil, digestive enzyme, iron, and women's health supplements in my mouth and drink.
+Step 4: Warm up a water bottle full of water on the stove, squeeze a full lemon and put the juice in a GLASS bottle (don't put hot liquids or oils in plastic 😵), drop 1 drop of Lemon in and add water. Drink up.
+Step 5: Wait 30 min after drinking lemon water to drink a smoothie made up of 2 bananas, a hefty handful of spinach, and a whole bunch of blueberries. An orange is a good addition as well.
I live by this routine. It may seem like a lot of work, but let's be honest, this post is taking me longer than this routine does. I think I have the prep of everything down to 10 minutes...and IT IS WORTH THE 10 MINUTES. YOU ARE WORTH THE 10 MINUTES.
What does your morning routine look like? 🧡
For years, my parents rented a large, rather rickety, wood frame, beach house in Gulf Shores, Alabama, for a week every summer. And though I and my four siblings gradually spread out across the country—and were at wildly varying stages of childhood and young adulthood—we would congregate there for whatever time each of could manage. Gulf Shores was a pretty quiet beach then. The days felt slow and hot and drenched in sand and salt water. The evenings were breezy and cooler. We played poker and monopoly and charades. Boyfriends and girlfriends were brought along. The huge screened sleeping porch was always full, and my personally favorite place to be at any time of day. It was always remarkable to see my father—who worked 50 weeks a year as a doctor and was frequently on call—so relaxed in swim shorts and happily grilling burgers, sipping a Budweiser. The thing is, on those family vacations at the beach, we were ALL relaxed and feeling far away from work or school or anything that required more than swimsuits, sunglasses, and a good book...(Budweiser was optional). . . .
