The first thing my husband and I do when we wake up is read our scriptures. (Instead of reaching for our phones first thing- we reach for our scriptures. There’s just something about connecting with God before connecting to the world that makes a big difference in how our day goes.) Usually we’ll spend 15-20 minutes doing our own personal scripture study and then we’ll share our personal thoughts and insights with each other. If you don’t have a lot of time, just read a couple of verses. There’s no rule that says you always have to read an entire chapter. This is one of my favorite marriage tips that leads to a happy marriage – commune with God together.


Your Morning Routine should include praying as a couple.

After we read our scriptures, we kneel down next to our bed, hold hands, and say a prayer together. We like to take turns saying the prayer each morning and it only takes a minute. Listening to my husband pray over me and our children is seriously one of my favorite things in the world. We believe that when we love God first, we can love each other better and have a stronger, happier marriage. And when I know that we’ve asked God for His help and we are both in it together- I feel like we can do and overcome anything.


After scriptures and prayers, we exercise together. I know, I know. It’s not the most fun thing in the world for everyone, and it can be hard to motivate yourself to get started. But it seriously makes a BIG difference! I’ve never regretted a workout after it was done. This is the part of my morning routine that helps burn off stress, improves my mood, and boosts my self confidence. I am always happier and more productive on the days when I exercise. (And it feels SO good getting it done first thing in the morning.)

Our early morning routine sweat sessions are sort of like mini daily dates for us. Spending that time together does wonders for our marriage. We like to go downstairs and pick a Beachbody On Demand workout to do together. It only takes 30 minutes and there’s no gym membership or babysitter required- plus there’s a huge variety to choose from. (But you can do any exercise that you enjoy. Just get moving and get that heart rate up.)


Now that you’re all sweaty, it’s time for a shower! Someone once told me her best marriage advice was to shower together! Showering together saves time, water, money- and adds a little romance to your morning (if you know what I mean.) This step may seem like an obvious part of your morning routine, but I wanted to add it in here because it’s important. Take the time to STOP and enjoy a nice, hot, relaxing shower together. As moms it can be temping to rush right into the morning to-do’s of making lunches, doing the kids hair, and getting breakfast on the table- telling yourself you’ll get a shower later. But guess what? If you put it off- it’s probably not going to happen until much later. Plus, check out these fun robes!

Tell yourself that it’s okay to slow down and enjoy your morning. That’s why you woke up early- so you wouldn’t have to be in a huge rush! This morning routine is all about self-care. So take that shower and enjoy it! (Oh, and a shower radio makes things even more fun! Just saying. Turn on some music and sing and dance together. It’s impossible to have a bad day when it starts off that way.)


Morning routine tip: get ready to be a happy couple

Again, this step may be obvious. But make sure that after you take your shower- you get ready for the day. Even if you’re a stay-at-home mom and don’t need to go anywhere today. STOP and get dressed and ready for the day. Even if it’s just doing your hair or slapping on some lipgloss and mascara. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with having a lazy, pajama day- but I find that I feel SO much better and more productive when I take the time to get ready first thing in the morning. Besides looking good for my husband, I want to look good for myself. It’s such a small thing that has a BIG impact on your mood and attitude. When I’m confident and in a better mood we can be a happy couple without any lingering storm clouds.


After we’re dressed and ready, we wake up the kids, get them ready, and have a family breakfast together. Again, it may seem like a small thing but sitting down together for a meal makes the day go so much smoother than before when we were running late and grabbing whatever we could find to eat in the car as we rushed out the door to get the kids to school. Not every day will feel like a Bed and Breakfast, but your family and your marriage will benefit. Before, I was so busy getting the kids food that I would sometimes forgot to eat anything myself before heading out the door. I’ve discovered that a healthy, filling meal does a lot for my mood! We’re often still on a bit of a time crunch so we like to make quick and easy meals like green smoothies or eggs. (This bit of marriage advice may have to be adapted based on your spouse and children’s schedule, but if there is any way to wake up early enough to eat together- I highly recommend it.)


While we eat, we go over our plan for the day to make sure we’re all on the same page. Is there a parent-teacher conference? Piano lessons? Doctor’s appointment? Do we need to go grocery shopping? Run by the bank? Fill the car with gas? It only takes a couple of minutes but “syncing” our to-do lists for the day makes everything run so much smoother!


Wrap up Your Morning Routine With a Long Kiss

Finally, before you head out the door and go separate ways- make sure you kiss him goodbye. And I don’t mean a hurried peck either. Give him a nice, long kiss and a hug and let him know that he is totally loved. Who wouldn’t want to start their day with a little bit of flirting and affection? Let him know that you will miss him and can’t wait for him to come back home. This final act in your morning routine can fill that love bucket throughout the day.

That’s it! When those 8 things happen during my morning routine I have the BEST days! I feel like a million bucks and am ready to tackle the day with energy and enthusiasm.

Sure, waking up early isn’t easy… especially at first. But, you’d be amazed at how quickly you can transform into an early bird and how great you’ll feel when these things are happening consistently. A habit takes 21 days to cement. Begin this morning routine today and is 3 weeks let us know how it transforms your mood and your marriage. And if you have any tips and ideas from your own morning routine
