I am so happy to be sharing with you my summer morning routine. There is no better feeling than waking up on a summer morning with the whole day ahead of you. My morning routines are usually all the same but in the summer I like to really take my time with my routine and enjoy it.
I’m up early in the summer because of my Frenchie. If you’ve been following me for awhile you know French Bulldogs overheat easily so I like to take our morning walk before it gets too hot. This is usually when she eats, plays a bit, and goes for her walk. Usually after this, Sky is done for the morning and ready to go back to bed or lay in the sun.
This is my prep time as I like to call it. I fill my water bottle and make a coffee or chai. This is when I like to wash my face and brush my hair so I’m just set and ready to go for the day. I always put on sunscreen during this step, even if I’m just going to be at my desk because the sun is so strong.
I’m not a big breakfast eater but in the summer I usually will take a bowl fruit to my desk. I love getting up early in the summer and getting things done so that I have the whole afternoon to do whatever I want. Since I work for myself, I like to time block my day. I briefly mentioned in my Productive Morning Routine that I usually work in blocks of time. This is fun over the summer because I get as much done as I can and then just move on with my day. As you can see, Sky just hangs in her bed right next to me!
This might not be morning but I definitely carve out time in my day to get in the sun. I love laying out especially since I live on a lake so I always make time to do it. Sky is usually inside in the AC or in her pool like this picture so she doesn’t really hang but I’ll be out side in the afternoons getting my vitamin D.
My summer morning routine is definitely short and sweet but I love summer. Whether you’re working from home or out and about, just the vibe of summer puts everyone in a great mood. I love the occasional random nap or the spontaneous trip for ice cream.
Let me know what your summer morning routine is like!
