A morning routine might be the most important thing you do every day. A solid routine in the morning promises to set you up for a successful day. It can help you feel GREAT and ready to tackle the world! Spend approximately half an hour each morning taking care of yourself. It can help optimize your productivity all day long.

I have a VERY regimented morning routine. Click the button below for a snapshot of what my morning looks like.
Take an extra couple of minutes every once in awhile when in the shower. Use this recipe for an invigorating body scrub perfect for exfoliation and managing cellulite problem areas.
Coffee Skin Scrub
- 8 oz. glass jar with lid
- 10 drops Grapefruit essential oil
- 5 drops Cypress essential oil
- 1 cup unbrewed ground coffee
- ½ cup olive oil or other oil of your choosing.
If you don’t have oils don’t worry just mix it up without them.
- Combine all ingredients.
- Mix together well.
- Store in a cool dark place.
- Apply the scrub a few times a week to desired areas such as thighs, belly, and arms, and rinse off.
Concerned about it going down the drain? Use a screen over the drain to catch the coffee ground
If your morning routine needs some work start planning it out. Make a list of the items you want to be a part of it and how long each will take. Remember to include time to feed the cat/dog, do the dishes, and any other chores you do every day. Based on the time required determine what time you need to get up.
In order for your morning routine to work you also need a good evening routine. Go to bed at a reasonable hour to allow for 8 hours of sleep. Have trouble falling asleep or sleeping through the night, get my GUIDE, 5 steps to promote a good night’s sleep.
