This Is What My Morning Routine Looks Like

No matter how late I sleep, I always wake up at sunrise. I sleep alarm-free most nights unless I have a super early appointment. 
The secret? East-facing windows. They soak up all the morning sun and brighten up my bedroom. When I sleep early, I wake up just in time to catch the dawn cracking in front of me. I’ve seen it a hundred times, but it still feels like the first time. Amazing.
Depending on how heavy the schedule of the day is, sometimes, I pull down the blinds so I can sneak in a few more minutes of sleeping. 
Now this is the time I need my phone to set an alarm for every 5 minutes for 30 minutes.
On WakeUp Ep.02, I use my hip power to get off the bed. Yes, very James Brown – Get Up Offa That Thing.
Then I make myself a cup of tea while I’m preparing things I need for the day. I know… I should’ve done this the night before, but I like using my nighttime energy for more sleeping and less day prep!
Will that cup of tea ever touch my lips? Depends. Sometimes, I remember. Sometimes, I make another one and then remember “oh, I just made one.”
I take a shower, do my quick and dirty skin face prep and no matter what the last thing I make sure before I leave the house – I got my phone and beady lanyard where my key is.
