I’ve been working on having a morning routine, I found myself struggling not sure where to start each morning. I kept forgetting to eat breakfast. I kept not putting my makeup on or any of the other little things that make me feel more human during the day.

I sat down and looked through the Google Play Store to see if there was an app that could help me. I downloaded a few to try but my favorite app: Routinery:

The Routinery App

I have created a morning routine and a night routine. I have only used the morning one so far, but it’s made such a big difference in my mornings. I feel more set for the day.

My Routine

Now that I have used the app for a couple weeks I’m updating my routine just slightly. That’s the great part of the app. I can move around the habits I need to, I can add habits, and I can adjust the amount of time I need for each habit.

  • Drink water (2 min)
  • Get ready for the day (15 min)
  • Take vitamins and pills (2 min)
  • Breakfast (10 min)
  • Writing (10 min)
  • Yoga (30 min)

Every morning my app reminds me to start my morning routine at the time I set up. I then start the routine. It sets up a countdown clock and we are off on my habits.

I really like if I get interrupted by a call or a kid I can pause my timer. I can also add more time to a habit – like writing if I get really inspired – or I can just click the check mark if I have finished it early to move on to the next habit. Also if you need to you can skip a habit if you need, like if you are going out to breakfast you can just skip the breakfast option.

Should I Subscribe?

I am tempted to subscribe for the premium features of the app that include showing how you are doing overall with each habit, unlimited routines, and more. I rarely subscribe to an app but this might be one that I do subscribe to.
