A Day in the Life: My Ideal Day

intro.jpg

So, a couple days ago I was randomly thinking “You know, I haven’t posted anything super ‘lifestyle-ish’ in a while” and it got me thinking about some post ideas I could do that would go along with my lifestyle niche. Then I thought “Why not just do a post about how I wish my life could be?” And that’s how I decided to make today’s post. I know, genius, right? *takes a bow*

Anywho, today I will be sharing a routine for my day to day life (when it goes right) and things I like to do each day to be productive and get stuff done. So without further ado, let’s get right into it!

7:00 A.M. | Rise & shine! I’m an early(-ish) bird and like to get up around 7:00 so I can start my day before most of the world is awake.

7:00-7:10 | I’ll say a quick prayer for a good day, stretch in bed to warm up my muscles, and then get up and start my day.

7:10-7:20 | I usually lay out my outfit the night before so I can get dressed with no hassle in the morning. Then I’ll put away my pajamas and make my bed before I head downstairs to the kitchen.

7:20-7:45 | Every morning, I do this amazing thing called oil pulling before I eat or drink anything. It’s basically swishing coconut oil in your mouth for about 20 minutes. (I know it sounds weird – just hear me out) I swear this does *wonders* for your gums and is a great way to naturally whiten your teeth. I always check phone and listen to music while I’m oil pulling and then brush my teeth after my 20 minutes are over for super clean, white teeth.

7:45-8:30 | Next, I cook a hearty breakfast (usually oatmeal and berries or a breakfast sandwich) and make some warm lemon water for hydration and detox. I’ll eat my breakfast outside and take my vitamins with my mom’s homemade Kombucha. 

8:30-9:00 | After a delicious breakfast, I will continue my productive morning by doing a little grooming. I’ll go through my morning skincare routine and then brush/style hair.

9:00-10:00 | I usually have a certain task I want to finish each day, so I have time reserved in the morning to complete that task. It feels great to get your priorities knocked out so you don’t have to worry about them for the rest of the day.

10:00-12:00 | Next, I’ll finish any work or blogging I need to catch up on.

12:00-5:00 | I love to meet up with friends and go shopping or just hang around in my free afternoons. Otherwise, I’ll keep myself busy at home.

5:00-5:30 | I usually workout right before dinner and do my favorite full body workout routine that I found on Pinterest. (I’ll have to share it with you guys in another post – it’s amazing!)

5:30-6:00 | After my workouts, I’ll eat a nutritious dinner with the fam. (Fun fact: After exercising for 30 minutes, you can be burning calories doing pretty much nothing for two hours after your workout! Hense the reason why I workout before I eat. ;))

6:00-8:00 | I’ll use this time to finish any work that still needs to be done. If I’ve completed everything on my to-do list for the day, I’ll read, watch my favorite shows on Netflix, or browse around Pinterest.

8:00-8:45 | I love to take evening walks with my mom and dog, Merphy, around the park or downtown. It’s a great way to get outside and spend time with my family!

8:45-9:15 | When I get home, I’ll take a quick shower, possibly pamper myself to a face mask, and then get ready for bed.

9:15-10:00 | I’ll wind down for about 45 minutes prior to going to bed. I usually do my daily journaling, read, listen to music and chill for a little bit in this time.

10:00 P.M. | I’ll say a quick prayer thanking the Lord for a great day and then hit the hay.

That right there my friends is what I wish my days were like all the time. I mean look at it! It’s so organized and I just love it. I try to stick to this schedule during breaks and weekends so I keep up my productivity even though I don’t have school. If you want to use some of my ideas from this schedule or make your own, be my guest! In fact, I’d love to see that happen!

Also, my apologies for not posting for a while. I’m working super hard on my design business and branding my own blog. (and so far it’s looking pretty sharp ;))

Have a great day everyone, and I will talk to you later!

  1. Nup. I haven’t got any routine. I guess I just go with the day, accepting the tasks that it asks me to day. Not all the time, but you get me. 😛
    Although I sometimes wish I didn’t forget some things, I learn to forgive myself, I guess? Great post, Liv!

  2. OH THIS IS AWESOME. If only I could live my perfect day each day. XD My ideal day would include time for reading, writing, blogging, spending time with friends and family, and doing some things I normally don’t have time to do! Love this post!

    1. Oh I agree! This is my summer schedule. During the school year, homework and my job take over most of my daily schedule. And I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I really loved writing it! 🙂

  3. Oh my god, this is so organized?????? I go through most of my days knowing that I have to go to school and eat at least once. I’m still in awe of the fact that you can make this kind of calendar and follow through on it??? Also your blog design is just so pretty. Wow. I’m still in shock from it. How are you so organized and great and writing and have such a great blog?

    1. Haha this comment made my day! 🙂 Organization kinda runs in my family, and with flexibility, you can follow any schedule. 😉 And thank you! I have put a lot of effort into my blog, and it always makes me happy when people appreciate it! ^.^

  4. Sounds like a fantastic day! 😉 😉 You are way more responsible than me is sounds like! XD Putting pajamas away and making your bed and even cooking your own breakfast??? XD haha!!! I’m more lazy than you probably…my room is usually very messy, and my day is more of a ‘whatever’ than yours!! Sounds like a wonderful day thougH! Thanks for sharing!!!!!

    1. Oh trust me – I am not always organized. My room right now has school assignments thrown all over the place and random piles of stuff. 😬 Hopefully I will clean up everything soon though. 🙏🏼
      I love that you enjoyed it! 🙂

    1. Haha thanks! Organization runs in the family. 😂 I feel you though. It’s frustrating when you organize something and it doesn’t work out.

  5. I usually just freestyle up my routine…I’m not a very organized person. XD But this looks a lot like an ideal day for me, too! I do love doing all my urgent tasks in the morning so I can get them out of the way. 🙂

    1. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with a little freestyle! I admire that! And I totally agree. Getting the things done that need to be done first thing is the way to go! 😉
