Hi cool people!
What are your morning routines?
When I think of morning routines I think of cleansing and facial mask…..all that kind of stuff. But really, That’s just what some or most people include in their morning routine.
For people like me,….that’s just something we do once in a while (a long while).
As a little girl growing up in Nigeria, my siblings and I were taught that the first thing to do when we wake up is pray. After praying, go to the bathroom brush your teeth and wash your face before you even begin to look at any food. Then, a couple of hours after breakfast, we shower and then play. Lol. Those were on the weekends of course and holidays. However, on school days, it was wake up, pray, brush your teeth, shower, eat and off to school.
However, as an adult, I must confess I have sometimes forgotten to say my morning prayers and have no reason for that. My morning routine as an adult is just this: I wake up at 6:00 or 7:00am, feeling healthy, I go to pick up my phone to look at Instagram or check if i have any messages. My conscience becomes angry and reminds me of how ungrateful I’m being.
The conscience speaks.
It says: “you wake up healthy and you can’t even thank God or say good morning to Lord before you pick up your phone?” I slightly roll my eyes in my mind and at the same time shout at myself for taking God for granted. like a kid waiting to open a box of candy I quickly say a brief prayer, which consist of “thanking the lord, asking for forgiveness and blessings. Then I pick up my phone and open Instagram. So, for the first 45 minutes awake, I browse through Instagram watching funny videos and stuffs.
Depending on how much sleep I got the night before, I might go back to sleep or just lay in bed thinking. After about an hour, I get up, lay my bed, go to the bathroom brush my teeth, wash my face or shower (depending on how I feel) and get ready for my work. I work from home so………. Anyways, once I start working its very difficult for me to get up and do anything else until I’m done. That means no breakfast until about 12 03 1:00 pm, which is around the time I am done with phase one of my work.
That’s all I do in the mornings, there isn’t really much to it. I don’t do anything serious or fancy to my face, although i think i should. Anyways, right now my routine consist of the above.
How interesting was it? Lol
