The Perfect Morning Routine

Ask any successful person their secret to success and they are likely to mention something about their routines.

Routines help you create positive daily habits that many claim are key to a successful life. Even if you’ve found your perfect morning routine, we know that following it consistently can be difficult. Late nights may cause you to hit snooze one too many times or distractions like your phone, your children or pets can also cause you to lose focus.

Instead of following your zen-like morning routine, you’ll be rushing out the door with wet hair and an empty stomach.

The best routine is the one you can stick to.

Take baby steps when building your routine and don’t try to be too ambitious.  Need some inspiration? Guud co-founder Morgane has her routine down to a science. Check out her fool proof morning routine and start your day full of positivity and power!

🧘‍♀️ Step 1: Yoga time


My alarm goes off at 6:45. I like a lie in as much as the next person, but I always try to get up as quickly as possible. I start every day with a 20-minute yoga session. This session sets up how I feel for the rest of the day.

🥑 Step 2: A Healthy Breakfast

Our family loves a healthy breakfast. Our favourite is a smoothie bowl packed with fruits and veggies. Here’s how to make it:

Ingredients (2 servings)

  • 2 frozen bananas. (Tip: Place the bananas in the freezer the night before, without peeling)
  • 1 apple or pear
  • 50 ml coconut water or almond milk
  • ¼ avocado
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 1 handful of kale (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice
  • 80 grams mango pieces (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 date (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seed

How to Make Your Bowl

  • Put the coconut water or almond milk in the blender.

  • Now add all soft ingredients.

  • Then add the hard or frozen pieces.

  • Mix together until smooth (but don’t go too crazy, otherwise it will be runny!)

Serve the smoothie bowl with granola, cocoa nibs, seeds, coconut flakes, and pieces of fruit. Yum!

But what about coffee?!

I have breakfast without coffee. In the past, there was no way I could function without it, but I have found that it negatively impacts my cycle. So I now avoid coffee altogether.

Now, I prefer ginger or turmeric tea or raw cacao with maca and almond milk. It’s just as tasty and it’s a super healthy energy boost too!

✨ Step 3: Superpower Supplements

I always include supplements in my diet. I take two different kinds: one in the morning and one in the evening.

Morning Supplements: Every morning, I take 1 capsule of Guud Flow. Depending on which phase of my cycle I am in, I also take Guud Glow supplements for my skin. I used to get really bad pimples, but these supplements help my skin absolutely glow.

Evening Supplements: At night, I take Guud Inside because it is packed with omega-3. Omega-3 helps balance regular female hormones and has an anti-inflammatory effect. I find that it’s best to take this one right after dinner.

I also take Guud Vibes which helps me get some quality Zzzzs. Guud Vibes contains high quality, easy-to-digest magnesium which helps produce your sleep hormone – key to a good night’s rest.
