Winter break is coming up, or it’s already happening, and for the next 3 or 4 weeks, we have absolutely no structure in our lives and we need a routine. So, today I’m going to share my winter routine, that will include inspiration from Hygge, the 1940s and 50s, as well as modern college students.
For school, I tend to wake up at 4:30 in the morning, however, now that I don’t have to be out of the house at 7am, that’s going to change. Here’s my winter break morning routine.
7:00am – Wake up and use the restroom
7:10am – Drink 200ml of water and brush teeth
7:20am – Yoga and workout
8:20am – Shower, skin care, get dressed, do hair and make up
9:00am – Make bed, open blinds, quick room clean
9:15am – Breakfast!
9:45am – Bible time (read bible, pray, sing some songs, journal)
10:15am – Reading time (read my current book)
10:45am – Play with Aero (my doggo)
11:00am – Take a walk outside
11:30am – Freshen up and do one self-care activity
The afternoon is a great time to get things done, however we can often experience an afternoon slump after doing too much or not enough.
12:00pm – Lunch!
12:30pm – One MCAT study lesson on Khan Academy
1:00pm – Power nap
2:10pm – Sewing practice? Crafting? Something creative
3:00pm – Mindless activities (YouTube, TV, Netflix, video games, etc.)
4:00pm – Eat dinner
4:30pm – Hang out with family
5:00pm – Gratitude and tarot
6:00pm – Meditation and prayer
6:30pm – Free time (Netflix, YouTube, video games, etc.)
8:30pm – Change into PJs, skincare, brush teeth, hair up
9:00pm – Blinds close, quick room clean
9:30pm – Reading time
10:00pm – Sleep!
It’s always important to keep a consistent schedule, which is why I make routines for every time of the year. I hope this has inspired you in some way.
Lots of love,
