Ok, switch over to your creeper brain. I’m about to get a little more personal about my morning routine.
Imagine the following:
6:30 am: My husband snoozes his alarm 12 times, and finally decides to get up. Sleepily, I ask him to open the kitchen door, because if he does, my tiny fluffy dog will sprint to the bedroom, hop in bed with me and immediately assume the “little spoon” position. The puppy is warm, and I ask him if he slept well. He did, because he’s a dog and his life is the easiest.
6:50 am: Eventually I go downstairs to make breakfast, and I don’t mean pour a bowl of cereal. I mean a hearty, savory, uses multiple pots and pans BREAKFAST. I don’t mess around when it comes to breaking my fast.
7:30 am: By the time my puppy and I have enjoyed a long, filling, made from scratch breakfast, I have about 15 minutes before I need to leave the house.
8:00 am: I arrive at the clinic and start seeing patients. Makeup done. Hair styled. B vitamins restored. Gut health improved. Brain boosted. Reasonably professional outfit on.
Ok… so I may have left some things out… like those 15 minutes where everything falls in place? Oh yeah. That.
Those 15 minutes are where the Dollup has been a game changer. I don’t know if you’ve seen the Dollup hanging out in the “accessories” part of our shop, but if you have, you’ve probably wondered why we carry a makeup case alongside our physician-grade nutrition.
Here’s why: we’re REAL not IDEAL.
Ideally, I would get up earlier, give myself plenty of time to get ready, and avoid the rush.
In reality, I will not wake up earlier. I don’t have kids yet, and I’ve heard once you have them that you basically stop sleeping. So yeah, I’m gonna revel in my comfy sheets until further notice.
So how does my morning come together?
In those 15 minutes, I smooth my hair out, put clothes on, put some foundation on my face, and pack my bag for the day... at lightning speed.
I toss my Dollup in my bag, which contains the rest of my makeup, and my vitamins.
I hop in the car, and take off. When I sit at a red light or 2 along the way, I take my supplements (for me, that’s a Methyl B, a fish oil, and a probiotic… sometimes a multivitamin if I’ve been slacking with my clean eating). When I pull into the parking lot of the clinic, (at 7:58am) I toss on my eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, blush, and lipgloss.
(I don’t recommend multitasking in cars, just to be clear. But I had to tell you guys the truth about my own routine).
