Morning Routine of a Freelance Graphic Designer

Morning Routine of a Freelance Graphic Designer - student project

My primary focus: My focus on creating a perfect morning routine will ultimately give me extra hours in the day. Before the rest of the world is up and at it, I can get a good start on the day: replying to emails, writing new content, and progressing on my own personal work.

What habits will I do? Distraction-free writing, walking the dog, and reading.

Routine Breakdown: 

  • 5:50 am: Wake up, bathroom, brush teeth, wash face (10 min)
  • 6:00 am: Take care of pets (10 min)
  • 6:10 am: Eat breakfast, read (20 min)
  • 6:30 am: Make coffee, write, work on personal work, catch up on emails (60 min)
  • 7:30 am: Plan out the tasks for the day (15 min)
  • 7:45 am: Walk the dog, tidy up, break (45 min)
  • 8:30 am: Start work

Bedtime focus:

  • Relax, destress, and strive to "turn-off" 30 minutes before bed
  • Read one chapter of a book
