Today we’re talking about our routines- what we do when we wake up, and how we wind down as bedtime approaches. Having a routine in place helps to set your day up for success. You feel good, in control, and are better able to manage healthy eating and lifestyle changes. This also results in improved sleep and energy levels. Below is an outline of our daily routine. Listen in to get the more thorough and interactive version! Hopefully some of the things we incorporate into our routine will be helpful for when you develop your very own routine. Have a solid routine you find helpful? Drop a line in the comments below and let us know!

Wendy’s AM Routine:
- Wake up to my relaxing Samsung morning flower alarm after having around 8 hours of sleep

Love this! I recently discovered his idea of having an AM and PM routine and it has made a world of difference for me. It’s simple, but yet meaningful.
Jess, what was that self-massage that you mentioned?
Guys, I’m such a huge fan of the work you do! You inspire me a lot. Keep it up!
THERACANE!!! LOVE IT!

My morning routine is similar to Jessica’s except for the working out part. I usually pic a couple of breakfast recipes for breakfast that are smoothies or oatmeal and head into work by 7. But my evening routine is similar to Wendy’s. I thought i was the only one that felt like I didnt have time for tv. I always wonder how everyone else spends hours every night watching tv or talking on the phone. I do incorporate an hour of cleaning everyday and do at least one load of laundry. I cook/make next day lunches every day and will start doing afternoon daily workouts soon. Like you guys, I do face/hair at night and try to pray/read nightly. I’m still trying to figure out how to get some “me time” in the evenings because it’s starting to get depressing otherwise. By the time everything is done it’s so late!
