My mornings are really important to me, they are mine and B’s alone time. For this reason, I try and schedule everything work wise between 11AM and 5PM. The truth is, that’s what I try to do…but that isn’t the always the case. I know there are MANY moms out there who have to wake up and go…whether you have 5 minutes or 3 hours, you have to make it work for you.


I’m really working on waking up before B right now so I can do my meditation practice before he wakes up. On days that he is my alarm clock, as soon as he starts screaming MaMaaaa I get out of bed and as my feet hit the floor I say what 3 things I’m extremely grateful for. Then I pick up my phone (away from my nightstand) to see what time it is then put it right back down without reading any messages or going on Instagram. It’s taken a lot of time and discipline not to look at my phone first thing in the morning but it’s helped reduce so much anxiety in my life that I refuse to now. I always splash cold water on my face to help wake me up and wash off anything negative that I was holding onto from the day before. I think of it as washing away what is not serving me.


I kiss B so many times it’s annoying when I see that little face then go to the kitchen and make some warm water with lemon.


After the water it’s either English breakfast tea with rice or coconut milk or a coconut milk latte (when I’m not on a personal coffee free challenge!).


Green Juice
Green Smoothie
Mixed fruit


Meditation practice if I don’t get in this on before B wakes up I take 25 minutes to first read my lesson in A Course In Miracles (workbook in back of book), then a 20 minute meditation with a prayer at the end.


Either a …
10 minute, 20 minute or 30 minute flow (depending what I have time for)


Either —

2 or 3 pieces of avocado toast, steel cut oats, or a green juice if I haven’t had one yet.


Dry brush
Essential oils
Makeup (my 5 minute daytime makeup tutorial here)

…Out the door

    Hi Melissa! Thanks for sharing your morning routine. Do you use any products on your face (cleanser, toner, sunblock, etc.)? If so, which ones do you use? Do you use the lavender essential oil on all your body & face?
