My Morning Routine (And How It'll Bring Calm To Your Day)

Even though your morning routines may seem never changing, there is always one factor that will randomly appear.

My Morning Routine (And How It'll Bring Calm To Your Day)

Ring ring. It's 5 am. Time to wake up. Class starts in three hours. You need to organize yourself to get through the day. As you sloppily get out of bed and put on those fuzzy slippers, you manage to walk towards the fridge. The glow of light smacks your face, and you stand there in an utter grimace.

Should I make food this morning? You ask yourself. You slightly glance at the clock from the stove. It shines brightly 5:35 am, and the cereal box next to it catches your eye. "Cereal it is," you mutter as you grab the ceramic bowl. These are one of my typical mornings on a weekday. Honestly, this is probably the most joyful morning I have on a daily basis.

My morning routines are very monotonous. However, I like it to be that way. I find happiness in routine. It is comforting. A lot of people need to be in a stressful environment to thrive, but I cannot live like that. I know a lot of individuals are very on edge about things.

For me, I want to live in peace. I do not want always to be stressed out about small details. Little details are things that can be tackled one at a time. I think people try to tackle too many things at once. Waking up at an earlier time makes this easier for me. I wake up at five am every morning to get everything ready to start my day.

It is pretty amusing. My significant other is the complete opposite of this. He is the complete opposite of me. He suffers from insomnia, so he either wakes up early or late. He is a light sleeper, so I have to be careful whenever I wake up. But, he always shines a smile on his face even if I wake up the prince from his slumber. He is the one thing that I never planned to have in my routine.

I would always spend my mornings alone. After he had appeared in my life, I started to sleep earlier to wake up more refreshed in the morning. He made me refrain from drinking coffee, and I began drinking more water. He slowly stopped my bad morning habits and replaced them with good ones. Even though it is a small factor that I did not calculate in my morning routines, I would never change it for anything this world can offer me.

Even though your morning routines may seem never changing, there will always be this one factor that will randomly appear. Never fear to face it. Always embrace the unknown. It is the only thing we can do anyways.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
