The Morning Routine

by Tony Steenson, 36, Bricklayer, Goonellabah, Australia

Fourteen years ago my morning routine was:

  • Go to work {didn’t need to wake up as I was still awake from the day before}.

About ten years ago my morning routine was:

  •  Wake up
  •  Get stoned
  •  Grab some lunch (loaf of bread, tomatoes , salt & vinegar chips, chocolate if I hadn’t eaten it all the night before)
  •  Off to work.

All that in 30 minutes, although I could do it in 5 if needed. There was also still a bit of my fourteen years ago morning routine going on as well. 

Six years ago my morning routine was:

  • Wake up
  • Breakfast of baked beans on toast
  • Get lunch ready {whatever I could find in fridge}
  • Go to work.

This took maybe 30 minutes to 1 hour but always rushing to get out the door.

My morning routine now:

  • Wake up feeling refreshed from my sleep
  • Cup of tea
  • Work on computer for an hour or so
  • Stretches and exercise
  • Prepare my lunch for the day {often baked vegetables that have been pre-prepared}
  • Breakfast of what I feel like at the time {anything from soup to eggs to leftovers or even an apple}
  • Leave home for a great day anywhere from 5.30 am – 6 am.

I sometimes rotate the order in which I do these activities.

I also do housework each morning to support my family.

I can now fit so much more into my mornings as a result of living a great life and including routines and rituals that really support me; I rarely rush out the door, as I hate the anxiousness it puts me in.

My mornings and my morning routines are now glorious.

  1. The honesty of this blog is such that anyone who reads it can only say “Wow”. There is another way of living that defies the cycle of abuse, and that way is called The Way of the Livingness.

  2. They certainly do sound it, and what stands out for me is how valued and purposeful your mornings and morning routines are. A great reminder that we are living in every moment and the quality of how we live every moment means everything. As such fulfilment is possible to live regardless of where we are and whatever we are doing.
