A morning routine or morning ritual is series of actions you take each morning.
A solo routine allows you to spend time connecting with yourself before you start your day and is an act of self-love.
A morning routine with another person allows you to spend time connecting with another before you start your days and is an act of commitment and respect for the success of the relationship.
When it comes to having a happy relationship, I think there are certain routines that can have a powerful and positive impact.
My morning routine feels so good these days and I do a solo and partnered one daily.
Here’s my solo morning routine:
Open my eyes
Feel and speak aloud my gratitude for waking up to another day and being alive
Acknowledge that it’s a new day that I am not in control of
Use the bathroom
Free write about whatever thoughts, fears, gratitudes and/or desires on my mind
Rip up/release the fears and stories or place my desires and gratitudes in my spiritual collection box
Juice 16oz of celery
Make green smoothies for me and my partner
10-15 mins of physical movement
Morning ritual with my partner (see below)
Get ready for the day
Here’s my morning ritual with my partner, we do this before we head off to work:
Share how we individually feel in this moment
Read a short inspirational text
Share how we related to the text
Share a gratitude for the self, for the other and for the world
A morning routine can look however you design it.
It can be 2 hours or 2 mins. Whatever you chose let it be something that leaves you feel like you did something loving and caring for yourself and/or your relationship.
Do you have a morning routine? I’d love to hear about it below!
