What’s your morning routine?
My morning routine does vary but I usually wake up quite early, about 6ish. I always try to start my day with meditation, journaling or some goal setting. Movement is very important to me so whether it’s a class, walk, run or swim, so I always get outdoors and move my body. The other thing I never start my day without is my bulletproof coffee, it helps me maintain sustained energy throughout the day and starts me on the right foot!
