Post and YouTube video by Rain San Martin
In this post and video I share my "basic" morning routine as of Fall 2019. Other work and home straightening may occur throughout this ritual, yet these are the pillars of the day. This is to encourage you to design one for yourself! Experiment with your ideal ritual until your morning is customized to your taste. This is Lifestyle Design at it's core!
My Morning Routine - 2019
5:00am Wake (most days of the week)
*Get ready for the day.
*Review calendar and key tasks.
6:00am Make coffee.
*Enjoy coffee while reading blogs (Mon / Wed / Fri) or physical publications (Tues / Thurs / Sat / Sun). -30 minutes. I drink a bold blend of Peet's Coffee Sumatra (affiliate link which helps to support this site) , which I usually buy from our local grocery store Meijer.
*Clean one bathroom. We have two. This keeps them looking presentable.
7:30am Work on blog post for VintageGothicLady.com, YouTube channel outline or Hubpages article writing https://hubpages.com/@rainsanmartin. This is 1 hour spent of focused time for Creative Business Hour.
8:30am Cook breakfast, ready by 9:00am
10:30am Deep cleaning 1 hour, Homekeeping focus.
I have discovered that for me personally I need to devote more time to keeping the home, deep cleaning and decluttering than has generally been recommended in our modern era. Vintage housekeeping principles are something I am continually striving for. Over time I have seen a great improvement in the homes cleanliness and aesthetic. Progress not perfection.
Here are a few tips that will help you with your morning routine:
-Set out your clothes the night before.
-Write a simple routine.
-Get to bed early.
My morning prioritizes two lifetime goals: 1 hour – deep cleaning: Keeper of the Home life purpose. 1 hour Blog Writing and YouTube planning: Creative Business Passion. I encourage you to incorporate your lifetime goals into your morning routine!

Have a wondrous week!
