Routines are everything to me.  They keep me level headed, intentional, and productive. Knowing the first thing I’m going to do in the morning (make a matcha latte) is comforting.  Everyone’s routine means something different, of course.  Mine represents the time I take for myself before I do anything else in the day.

If you’re someone who presses snooze 8 times and rolls out of bed with just enough time to dress, grab a granola bar, and MAYBE brush your teeth…let’s chat.  Consider waking up 20 minutes earlier.  20 minutes of intentional self care could be the difference between a day where you’re just trying to stay afloat and a day where you are in control.

It’s true, finding a balance of routine and ‘winging it’ is key.  I try not to get so tied to my routines that I’m upset or anxious if something comes up.  It’s OK and oh so important to take time for yourself – preferably at the beginning of every day, to reflect, set intentions, and envision the way you will walk (or twerk) through your day.

If you’re a matcha person – give this recipe a try tomorrow morning!
