MY PRODUCTIVE SLIGHTLY BOUJIE MORNING PAMPER ROUTINE | Lily of Nigeria Lockdown Series
Hey guys! Nowadays we are all working from home, and I've had to adapt to a productive routine working from home. I find myself waking up at 5 am, which according to some experts is a healthy morning routine. It's indeed a welcome change, and I've learnt to make the most of my extra awake time. In this blog post I am sharing my 5 am morning routine with you, which some months ago would have had me rolling with laughter. I try my best to maximize every minute of the day, and get more work done. It also helps that the sun rises pretty early here at 4 am sometimes, and other times at minutes past 5 am. Personally, from my experience I think the secret to gettingup early is sleeping early.

5 AM: Wake up, and lay in bed for a bit.
I like to dress my bed once I get out of it, it keeps me calm and organized. On some days I drink my lemon and water, on other days I make sure I drink 1 litre of water and have a bath. On other days, I rush to the bathroom (do a pee), and/or have a bath, (on some days I bathe if my walk is scheduled in the evening on others I walk first, then have a bath when I get back).

5:30 AM: Exercise
To be honest, the most exercise I do is brisk walking for 4 miles, stretching my entire body (I use an app to guide me because, well 🤷🏽‍♀️). I don't know about you boo, but I am not a fan of huffing and puffing, hence, no extraordinary exercises... At this juncture I want to state that this is not a luxury pamper morning routine. We can have that post on another day, just not today, or this period.



I listen to some of my favourite podcasts sometimes while I am walking. When I get back I check my phone (go through emails, whatsApp, social media, and maybe watch one or two youtube videos).

My relaxed hair is currently in the transitioning stage so I like to moisturise it once in two days. I use warm water on it while in the shower to moisturize it. Then, I apply my leave in conditioner and seal it with hair grease (you read that right sis, hair grease THANK GOD my hair is THRIVING).

7:30 AM: At this point, I go through my to-do list for the day, and have a cup of tea, or some fruits if I am feeling a bit empty in my tummy. I usually eat at 2 PM because I am not a breakfast person (never have been). I only just discovered I've been doing intermittent fasting without knowing it had a name.

8 AM: Boot my PC and get down to work.

I usually have some video calls around 11 am for professional reasons.

12:00 PM: if I'm done with my video calls I'll use this time to catch up on some of my favourite shows, or just keep practicing my French and Russian.
