If you watch YouTube videos, you might have discovered that it’s all the rage these days to uncover popular Influencers’ morning routines.
I understand that. I watch all the morning routine videos YouTube throws at me, because I’m curious to find out what successful people do every day in order to be successful.
So here is a comparison of my morning routine versus popular influencers’ morning routines:
Influencer’s Unrealistic Morning Routine*:
*(Based upon an amalgam of real YouTubers’ real videos)
When I first wake up I try to spend a couple hours without looking at my phone. (Says the influencer.)
I disconnect and just devote the first hours of the day to myself and have some quiet me time. I then drink a big glass of water, do some yoga, run 50 miles and have a cup of coffee.
Then it’s time for my shower, where I use all natural homemade products that I made myself.
After my shower I enjoy an all-natural breakfast with homemade bread and all homemade foods. Check out my videos with recipes for homemade rye bread, homemade spelt bread and gluten-free corn bread. I make them every day! (Winsome smile.)
Then I spend some time journaling. I find it helps me to put myself together and I recommend everyone practise journaling as a part of their daily lives.
I practise meditation — I trained with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi himself in my last trip to the Himalayas.
Then I take about an hour to read the Bible and pray.
After that I do my hair and my makeup and get dressed.
Only after I finish all that do I get into my car and drive to my job as CEO of a major international banking corporation.
Now, this is me when I try to follow that Unrealistic Influencer’s Morning Routine:
MY Morning Routine:
I get up, spend about half an hour trying to resist the urge to see if anyone has sent me an exciting whatsapp inviting me on a trip to Africa and then in the end I can’t resist any longer, and I spend about an hour on the phone checking all my groups and all my emails.
And then since I’m lazy and don’t feel like getting out of bed yet, I lounge around some more and read up on all the news.
After that I have a big glass of water and a big glass of diatomaceous earth. I take half a teaspoon of diatomaceous earth (make sure it’s “food grade”, I take it because it’s supposed to make your hair grow) stirred into a glass of water.
After that it’s time for yoga where I put on a podcast and listen to the podcast while I do yoga.
After the yoga routine I find the podcast so fascinating that I then need to listen to another one. Then another one. And finally another one. So then I just spend the rest of the morning listening to podcasts and do nothing else.
Then I realize it is now lunchtime and I haven’t eaten breakfast yet.
So I go to have breakfast, which might include store-bought items like sliced sandwich bread from a plastic package (as opposed to fresh baked baguettes which is what most people eat here in Europe, but I’m too lazy to get dressed and run down to the bakery), supermarket brand jam and UHT milk.
I eat breakfast while I spend the whole afternoon watching YouTube videos. By the time I finish breakfast it’s dinner time.
And I haven’t even practised meditation yet.
So I sit in meditation, fall asleep and sleep until the next morning. Where I do all these same things all over again.
One day I’ll get that popular and successful influencer’s morning routine down pat!
