3 Ways to Power Up Your Morning Routine

This post is sponsored by Ancient Nutrition, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

I have never been a morning person, and although many people have said that will change after having kids that hasn’t been the case. Do I have to get up earlier because of my little rugrats? Yes. But do I thrive in the morning and do so with glee? Generally speaking, no. Haha.

In spite of the struggle, I want to maximize my mornings to the best of my ability. So I’ve asked the strongest mother I know (my mommy of course) how she powers up in the morning, and these are her top 3 suggestions!

1. Make Your Bed

My parents always had us make our beds in the morning, and my mom reveals it was more than a chore or torture tactic. 😉

Making your bed is an automatic “win” as you start your day. Who doesn’t like to begin their morning feeling accomplished? It also brings a sense of organization to your space, and if you’re anything like me, cluttered surroundings can make you feel cluttered as well. 

2. Get Dressed Right Away 

As a work from home mom it’s easy for me to delay this part of my morning routine. However, my mom highly suggests getting dressed as soon as you’re up, so that you’re ready for anything as you face your day. I find this to be true, and am glad I took this piece of advice from her the other day when I completely forgot about my OB/Gyn appointment. There’s no way I would’ve made it on time if I hadn’t been up and dressed!

Plus, it helps you avoid the feeling of being rushed, which reduces your stress as you set out to accomplish your daily goals.

Isn’t my mama cute?!

3. Add Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen to Your Morning Drink

You don’t have to be on a keto diet in order to take advantage of the many benefits of keto collagen. Like most moms, my mother is constantly on the go, and wants easy ways to incorporate healthier lifestyle choices.

Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen is dairy, soy and gluten free, supports a healthy gut, healthy joints and healthy skin! You can even enjoy it whether your beverages are hot or cold, without worrying about it having an overpowering taste. 

This grass-fed beef collagen has been combined with medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) from coconuts, making it the perfect way to power up my very own super mom, and you and yours too!

  1. I was always taught to make my bed first thing in the morning, too. It just makes me happy to look in my room and see it made. 🙂 Weird, but I guess it works. (PS: Your mom is adorable!)

    1. It’s not weird! It makes you feel like you’re off to a great start! And my mom is pretty awesome. Thanks!

      Blessings, Patricia

    1. I haven’t tried the keto diet but this is a great and easy way to incorporate it!



  2. I have been seeing this Keto Collagen everywhere. There must be something to it. Plus, I cannot get dressed without making my bed. Literally, making my bed is one of the first things that I do every morning. It’s been engrained in my mind to make my bed, get dressed, and then go about my morning routine.

    1. That’s a great routine to have!! The Keto Collagen is super easy to incorporate too!



  3. I’m a big believer in making my bed and getting dressed. It’s so helpful to feel like, whatever else happens, I AT LEAST got that far. 🙂

  4. Love your mama! I don’t make my bed or get dressed until 3 pm but I try to before my hubby gets home. I really need to get better!

  5. My morning routine is so bad. I was in a good habit at making my bed and fell off the wagon with that. I’m also someone who works from home and often find myself working in my pajamas which are shorts and a t-shirt. Collagen is also something I want to start implementing as soon as I have our baby in a couple weeks.

    1. When are you due? I’m expecting in July!! But I hear you on the struggle!!



    1. Let me know what you think if you do!! I’m trying to get back to making my bed daily too!!



  6. Ummm….your mom is gorgeous! And I always feel so much better when my bed is made when I wake up. I’m not a morning person either!

  7. I totally agree on number 2, I feel bad lounging around in night clothes! Will check out the Keto Collagen product, I’m always looking for new ways to be healthy!

    1. It can be hard to get going when you’re not dressed first! And the Keto Collagen is super easy to incorporate!



  8. Your mama is so adorable.
    I have to say, I am actually a fan of Ancient Nutrition.
    I haven’t come across the Keto Collagen but I am definitely going to hunt it down now!

  9. 1) Your mama is a doll. 2) These are great suggestions, I really do feel so much better when I’ve gotten my bed made and gotten myself in a decent (cute even!) outfit!
