  1. Good morning! I have enjoyed listening to this podcast on morning routines. I was encouraged by a therapist back in October to write down all the things I do each morning, after work, and bedtime so that I can have set routines. Here is my morning routine which looks unbelievably long but a lot of the line items only take a few minutes each. Oh! and I love my cordless stick vacuum, too. Mine’s just a shark but it helps me to keep up with the dog hair everyday.
