The first thing I do in the morning is make my infused water. I make it with mint, lemon, lime, ginger, and cucumber. I drink the whole thing and then I pour my morning coffee. I’ve gotten out of the routine of starting with coffee because it eats your stomach lining and gives me jitters…it’s not a good way to start the day. So I start with the water, take my morning supplements (Juice Plus+ fruit and vegetable blends, vitamin D, vitamin C, vitamin B, zinc, and a CBG immune booster), and then have my coffee.
I take my coffee and go upstairs to what I call “the retreat” and meditate. Right now I’m a student in the A Course in Miracles, and I cannot do my day without it. I read the daily lesson and go right into the meditation. Once I’m done with my lesson, I write in my journal what I got from the lesson after I’ve meditated on it. All of that takes me about 10-20 minutes – not much time, but it makes a huge impact on how the rest of my day goes.
Sometimes I’ll grab a piece out 28 Secrets to Glow Up – it’s tips for health, energy, and radiance by my dear friend Marianne Talkovski. She’s here locally in Indy and is an esthetician, acupuncturist, and certified life coach. She has this awesome book out about all these ways you can glow up, so I’ll open it up and it’s always the right secret at the right time. After that, I walk down the hall to wake up my kids and get them ready for school.
After the kids are off to school I head downstairs to workout. Today I’m doing yoga, and I’m always accompanied by my dog Louie.
Now it’s time to get ready to head out for the day. I switch up my skincare routine and the scent I’m using every 6-12 weeks. Right now, it’s super dry out and it’s winter so I’m using GOOPGLOW Vitamin C + Hyaluronic Glow Serum on my face every morning. I follow that up with Eminence Neroli Age Corrective Eye Serum (I’m obsessed with this stuff). Then I top it off with Ambre Blends Skin Tonic. Sometimes, I may even add a little bit of CBD salve from Green Cherry Organics for an extra layer of hydration on top of the Skin Tonic.
Today I’m using the Ahnu Natural Deodorant and then using the Ahnu Spritzer all over, and then I grabbed the Ambre Oil Essence because I like mixing that with Ahnu. On my body, I’m using the Ahnu Skin Tonic layered with the Body Cream since it’s dry outside – it’s the perfect time to use both at the same time since it lasts all day. Then I get dressed, grab my infused water, and head out the door to work!
