5-9 Before The 9-5 | Beachly Tips

Aloha, beach lover! It's official, Fall is in full swing over here at Beachly HQ which to me means it's time to set a new routine to welcome in the new season! Lately, a trend has been popping up all over TikTok of gals showing off their 5-9 routine before starting their 9-5. I thought this was a perfect time to give it a try myself and share with my Beachly Tribe my thoughts, feelings, and tips to implement this in your own life!

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not asking you to jump start into a 5 am routine just because the seasons changed, I certainly haven't taken that deep of a dive! But I think there are some great things one can take from changing up their routine and getting an early start to the day. Let's dive right in!

5 AM... as if! 

Like I said, Beachly Tribe, I didn't just jump right into waking up at the crack of dawn and have a full 180 on my morning routine. However, this inspired me to think about easy ways to start waking up earlier in order to have more time in the mornings! I also noticed this led to huge differences in my mood, attitude, and overall feelings of the day. 

All you have to do is set your alarm 10 minutes earlier and slowly work your way from 10 minutes to 20 minutes until you hit one hour earlier than your usual wake up call. Setting aside that extra time and rising out of bed earlier than usual gives you a peaceful moment in the morning to get your day started. You can fill this time with a morning stretch, your favorite cup of coffee, or getting some fresh air and sunshine with a light morning walk.

5 am relax

I started doing this and have grown to easily wake up an hour before I normally was! While I may not be quite at the 5 am mark, I have truly enjoyed having extra time in the day to relax before starting work. 

6 AM... time to get the day started.

Now, this is where I saw the biggest change in my morning routine and something I plan on implementing for as long as I can - early morning walks! Once I'm up, I drink a large glass of water (hydration is key!), slip on some comfy workout clothes (I have a perfect recommendation) and head out the door for a nice easy walk listening to a podcast or my favorite music. 

For me, the key was to just do it. Once you're up and moving, it's much easier than you would think to get a nice mile or two in all before you have your first cup of coffee! 

Lately, I have been loving throwing on my Offshore Joggers with a cute workout top to get the day started. These comfy, cozy joggers are featured in the Fall Beachly box and have become a staple in my wardrobe. Not only are they perfect for early morning strolls, but they bring the perfect amount of aloha vibes to your morning!

7 AM

By the time I'm back from my morning walk, I'm ready to relax, sip on some coffee, and slowly ease into the getting-ready process of the day. The best part? There's no need to feel rushed with all the extra time you've given yourself!

It's the perfect time of morning to throw on a relaxing playlist, light your favorite candle, and relax. My current favorite candle? None only than the Broken Top Pineapple Sage Soy Candle available in our Beachly Fall Add-Ons Sale. It's just the right amount of seaside vibes you've been craving. Not to mention, it pairs perfectly with the Mango Wood Coasters by Salt + Umber in our Fall box!
