Simple Routines That Help Keep Me Healthy

Morning Routine and Night Routine - Mentally and Physically Healthy

I almost didn’t want to share my morning and night routines because they might overwhelm some women or might seem too simple for others. They are routines that I have had for a couple years now and have been tailored to meet my goals. They have helped keep me mentally and physically healthy.

I didn’t want to share them because I once remember looking at another woman’s morning and night routine and feeling like I could never do what she did. As if what I was doing was not good enough.

When you read my morning and night routine remember that it did not come naturally to me. I had to work at it and most of all I had to be gentle with myself when I did not complete my lists. Now I’m in a place in my life where 80% of the time I am able to get through my routines. Sometimes I’m so tired after a workout that I come home and take a nap. Sometimes I’m so tired from the long day that I can barely keep my eyes open to read one sentence of my book. I hope that no matter how many times you fall short of your routine – you never stop pursuing the best version of yourself. So many times we let one bad day ruin the rest of the week, the month or even the year.

Don’t feel obligated or guilty into doing anything on my lists unless you think it will help you with your goals. Ultimately, I’m sharing my lists to help you pinpoint what you need to do for your life.

I would love to know your routines in the comments down below.

Always remember you are good enough and capable of achieving anything.

  1. <3 thank you for sharing! I agree with you on being gentle with yourself as you establish what your individual routine should be that keeps you mentally and physically strong.


  2. Both my morning and night time routines look pretty much the same so it’s encouraging to see someone like minded and super successful! 🙂

  3. My routines look similar. However, as with anything else, when you plan something, God usually changes the plan. So my routines are only in place until God decides there is something else I should be doing.

  4. This is a beautiful routine to follow by everyday. I tried the morning routine today and it honestly made me feel so good; so motivated and empowered. It is insane how just by reading this, I could feel completely different and I could change the emotion that I feel about my day just with a quick bible reading or gratitude journal. I am definitely thinking of buying the Gratitude Workbook. This is the first blog post that I have read of you’rs and I really love it. Cant wait to read more 🙂
    Thank you beautiful
    Love Jennifer 🙂

  5. Just when I needed to see something reminding me to take better care of ME.
    Although they are simple tasks we’ve all been guilty of doing everything for everyone else before our own needs at one time or another. Yes, of course I do them, but sadly it’s usually whenever i can find time to, no longer having the important routine that became so habitual i’d done them without realising I had done anything at all. So, YAY! Tonight I restarted my routine… did them all & then some (adding a few of my own; *brush my hair… monthly routine->*have my hair, fingers, toes, eyebrows done professionally, as well as take a bath w/candles & soft music…
    Well, thanks to you taking the time to share this, I will be now sure to push myself to take time for ME again! No excuses, every night before bed , NO MATTER WHAT!
    For this I again thank you so very much !

  6. I can totally relate when you wrote about investing into stationary, I feel like I can be more productive with the right tools. It sounds funny but it does wonders, taking down notes is so much fun and interesting to read through them.
    Thank for the advice really appreciated it.

  7. Thank you so much, for reminding me, in such a simple and beautiful way, to practice self-care. Like most every other woman I know, I’m guilty of taking care of everyone else, and putting myself last, then feeing guilty because I didn’t accomplish what I wanted to. This reminds me to show myself some grace! I’d like to add, have a good belly laugh and also dance every day, whether day or night, or both! PS-love the photo of Santorini, my favorite place on Earth! 😉

  8. Muito bom! Gostei e copiei na parede do meu quarto!
    Very good! I liked and made a copy to put in my bedroom.
