I find that creativity starts with a positive mindset, and I'm all about starting my day in a way that allows me to be at my best in work and play.
Everyone has different things that work for them, but I always find it inspiring to read about how other creative professionals begin their days. So today, I'm sharing my morning routine!
I haven't always been a morning person, waking up does not come easily to me, and I am guilty of pushing snooze, but once I'm up I'm up and very chipper!
The first thing I do when I wake up is roll out of bed, check my email, brush my teeth, and apply all of my lotions and potions.
Washing my face in the morning is my favorite part of my routine. It wakes me up and gives me a clean slate.

Next, I change into my workout clothes and go to the gym. As soon as I'm done with my workout, I come home and make my morning protein shake.
Syd makes breakfast for the kids while I shower and get ready, and then we switch off so he can get ready while I get the girls dressed and ready.
After that, we tag team taking them to lessons or school.
I listen to all sorts of music, but in the morning Syd and I often turn on music that the girls love so we can have a dance party in the kitchen to get everyone pumped up for the day. Usually, they pick Taylor Swift or a top 40 song. When I'm alone in my bathroom getting ready, I listen to everything from The Black Keys to Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, Lizzo, and Tyler, the Creator to get my day going.
Our new towels from McGee & Co. elevate my morning routine for sure (they are soo soft,) but here's a few other things I can't do without in our shower:
