3 Things I Never Skip in the Morning
Thanks to Hyperbiotics for collaborating with me on this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
My morning routine is something I love, if I had 2 hours every morning to move slow and get all the things done that I want to I would love it. Reality is that I don’t get 2 hours to wake up and start my day so today I’m sharing 3 things I never skip in the morning with what little time I do have. Starting my day right is such a huge part of how the whole day is going to play out. I talk a lot about how wellness is a huge circle of things, not just your health so today I’m sharing the things of all sorts of areas of wellness.
3 Things I Never Skip in the Morning
I had the worst stomach before taking probiotics. I would be crampy, bloated, have indigestion, you name it, daily. I started taking them regularly about 5 years ago and now it’s very rare for me to have any type of digestive issue. I also feel overall more healthy and so much better. Gut health could be a whole series of blog posts but just know it’s extremely important and your gut is also known as your second brain. I encourage you to go to Hyperbiotics blog or pubmed.gov to learn more!
This one is huge guys, huge. I cannot have a good day unless I prepare myself mentally. Here are some of the things I do: 1. read my bible // I just go through one book at a time and read a few chapters each time I open it. 2. I write in my prayer/gratitude journal // Chris got me this for Christmas and it’s such a game-changer. I love writing down things I’m grateful for and going back to reflect on how awesome God has been. 3. I also can’t start my day without prayer, it’s not always a 30-minute quiet time full out prayer session but I always pray.
3. Oral Care
I just recently upped my oral care game with Hyperbiotics toothpaste and I love the benefits. I also use a copper tongue scraper that makes a huge impact. The benefits of tongue scraping are huge, I’m going to do a whole post on that soon. The last thing I use regularly is the Thieves mouthwash. I read that rinsing with essential oils is just as effective as flossing, how incredible is that (I don’t skip flossing now by any means but I love that).
Not every morning is perfectly planned and executed. There will be some days where I wake up and go straight into changing diapers and getting Emery ready for school without even brushing my teeth, but being intentional is something I strive for. One thing I’m working on is going with the flow if things don’t go as planned in the morning, what about you?

I just learned about probiotics and need to look into them more. Thanks for the recommendation!
You’ll be surprised at how much of a difference it makes!
I’m totally good for one and three! Although I’m grateful for all, I would like to make it a habit of formally journaling daily; trying to work it into my usual routine! xoxo, Sarah
It definitely makes a difference in the day
LOVE this!!! I am all about oral care as well and never ever skip that. I also received the 5 minute journal recently which focuses on gratitude and appreciation + kicking off and ending your day on a positive note and it has been wonderful. Definitely great to tofus on what we are grateful for!

So cool you have the journal too! It changes the day for sure
Sounds like a great routine! I will have to give probiotics a try, and I agree that oral care is so important – I’d never leave the house before brushing my teeth!
