SKIN CARE ROUTINE: GET READY MORNING ROUTINE WITH DR. MONA VAND

HELLO!! SKIN SKIN SKIN.

I LOVE IT- you know if you’re following along on IG STORIES.

I’ve been obsessed with skin since I can remember. Really though, I remember being like 19 under an umbrella with SPF & a huge hat on while all my friends were baking. To me healthy, glowy skin represents YOUTH! So screw spending a bunch of money on makeup, I would rather save it for skin.

You know a lot of people would call me PSYCHO. I like facials a few times a month- before you think this is excessive, WAIT! Number 1.) I get one hour of uninterrupted work done. Seriously- it’s heaven. Mo, who does my facial massage ( shout out to ShopGood ), creates this peaceful environment where I can get my self-care done ( check! ), enjoy aromatherapy ( check! ), AND return my e-mails/reply to DM’s/Slack with my team/add to social media. 2.) I LOVE A MULTI-TASKING MOMENT. This hour is efficient because I get to do a few things at once. Oh & 3.) the energy is ROCKING where I go. It’s quiet ( easy to work ), vibey ( calming ), & drowns the noise out ( so …

MORNING ROUTINE 2019

One thing that most definitely does not change is my three things I do every.single.morning. These three things set up each day for me. Think of them as a framework. A framework that is so very needed on crazy days. It’s to the point now that if I do NOT do these vital three things, I’m a grumpy bitch. LOL. Then something changed: a secret. Once you learn this secret you will never wake up the same way again. The second your eyes open you will think the same three things- trust me.

( You should know I discovered this secret morning routine through Aubrey Marcus’ book– we interviewed him on The Skinny Confidential HIM & HER Podcast & he raved about his morning routine, again. Let’s just say his morning routine helps him reach his full potential, everyday ).

5 VERY Simple & Effortless Morning Routine Tips

LAURYN

I AM QUITE SPECIFIC ABOUT MY MORNINGS.

In fact, Michael & I got in a fight the other day because he screwed up my morning. LOL. No joke. Like an actual fight over our mornings. Do you die?

Let me set the scene: I’m in my bathroom getting ready for the day. My music is playing ( Michael Bublé Holiday on Spotify if we’re getting specific ). The tangerine & lemon oil is going. I have a candle lit ( mimosa scent, duh! ). And I’m quietly & calmly listening to a business podcast as I do facial massage.

IN COMES MICHAEL LIKE A BAT OUTTA OF HELL. He starts going on & on about something to do with work. And I snapped. I ran out of the house with my facial massager in hand, fully wearing my lace nightgown & screeched at him: “THAT’S IT! YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO TALK TO ME ABOUT WORK AT THE HOUSE BEFORE 9 AM.”

( Picture me, I was like that “LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE GUY.” Remember him? If you don’t, watch this video so you can get the full visual of just how horrendous my 8 AM freak out unfolded …

YAWN! Morning Routine: Wake Up With Me

wake up with me | by the skinny confidential

wake up with me | by the skinny confidential

Not shockingly, I have a very specific way I prefer to wake up. I am not a fan of waking up super early. Typically I fall asleep late ( I work a lot a night ) so I try to start my mornings with barely ANY pressure.

One day I’ll film a “Wake Up With Me” video, but in the meantime here’s a breakdown of my ideal morning:

8:30 AM: Wake up and lay in bed for 15 minutes.

I try to meditate for five minutes every morning. Before you laugh, wait. Five minutes is actually a very long time ( for me ) to meditate. I lay there not moving and try to clear my head. I breathe and make a promise to start the day with positive intentions.

8:45 AM: Check my phone ( but who doesn’t? ).

I respond to a few emails, go on social media, & make a list of five things I ABSOLUTELY have to do that day. This helps me have a productive mindset all day.

9:00 AM: Make the bed.

I’m obsessed with starting the day by making the bed. Somehow this sets the tone of the entire …

YOU ASKED!

CURRENT NIGHT TIME ROUTINE is alive & kicking.

Hope you guys are loving videos- as you can tell I am really tapping into the YouTube situation. It’s a fun way to show you EXACTLY what is happening. Audio is EVERYTHING & writing is my first love, however video is always needed. There’s something just right about you guys being able to SEE what I am doing.

Huge Tim Ferriss fan. Love his podcast. And his latest book, Tribe Of Mentors. So this post is a very Tim-ish post. Basically I wanted to break down my best-case scenario night time routine for you. Like Tim, I believe a reliable night time routine is VERY MUCH important.

The better the sleep, the less stress. Always.
