Hello, everyone! Today, I wanted to share My Daily Routine for a More Balanced Life! Since the year began, I have done many things in order to improve my lifestyle. I’ve started eating a more plant-based diet, I’ve been working out more AND more consistently, and I have been using better products for my body (inside and out)! If you’ve ever been wondering, “what’s her daily routine?” then this post is for you.

I’ve partnered with Colgate® to share two of their new products! There’s new Colgate® Zero Toothpaste and new Colgate® Zero Mouthwash. Both are formulated with 0% artificial flavors, sweeteners, and colors and smell amazing. You can easily find them at Walmart! I love that part the most, because it’s where I do my weekly shopping trips. Today, I’m going to share how I’ve incorporated these products into my daily routine!
My Daily Routine for a More Balanced Life
My Healthy Morning Routine
I wanted to start this post by outlining my healthy morning routine before I go to work! This is my daily routine that I do almost every day of the week. It’s proven to be the quickest—and most efficient—way to get ready, and I’m generally done in less than twenty minutes! I really value my sleep and try to get as much as possible every night. Having an efficient morning routine is always helpful, because I can sleep in longer!
I always, always, always start off my day by brushing my teeth! I feel like I can’t start the morning without having perfectly fresh breath. First, I use the new Colgate® Zero Toothpaste (shop it here), and then I follow it up with the new Colgate® Zero Mouthwash (shop it here)! I particularly love the toothpaste because it comes in peppermint, which is also my favorite flavor of gum!
My favorite part of the toothpaste (and why I use it every day) is that it’s formulated with 0% artificial flavors, sweeteners, preservatives, and colors. Plus, it’s vegan, sugar-free, and gluten-free! Now that I’m going plant-based with my diet, I’ve really been looking for more clean beauty/healthcare products, too. This new line from Colgate® is everything I could want and more! After I brush my teeth and use the Colgate® Zero Fresh Breath Mouthwash, I do a quick morning makeup routine.
I think having a morning routine is healthy and such an important part of the day. I have also switched to more natural cosmetic products! I use a little bit of concealer, some pressed powder, and then a tad bit of mascara. That’s the gist of my daily makeup routine for work! Sometimes, I mix it up and fill in my eyebrows a little bit, but generally this is all I do!
My Daily Routine at Work
During the work day, my routine is pretty consistent! I usually get to work between 7am-8am and leave around 4:30pm-5:00pm. I usually end up hungry around 10:00am and eat a granola bar! They’re vegan with only a few ingredients and are very filling. They also usually tide me over until lunch!
During my lunch break, I usually pack something plant-based that I made the night before, or I’ll throw a couple of black bean burgers into my bag and call it a day. On the blog side of things, I generally try to pump out some Pinterest pin covers (or work on a blog post) while I’m at lunch!
On Sundays, I usually try to prep some snacks/meals for the week. Since I went plant-based, I have started making hummus! It’s really easy and also super affordable as well. If I get hungry in the afternoons while I’m at work, I usually grab some hummus and pretzel chips and call it a day!
My Evening Routine
After I get home from work, I try to work out every day (unless I have a large amount of blog work to get done). I love to run and it’s my favorite way to exercise. Since the new year has begun, I’ve started running at least one mile a day, and over the last two weeks, I’ve been shooting for two! I can already tell that my body feels healthier.
I shower, eat, and work on blog related tasks in the evening as well. If I have to post content, then I’ll do that and engage for around 30 minutes. If I need to create pins for my Pinterest account, I’ll work on that! Balancing working full-time and blogging is sometimes difficult, but I’ve found a routine that works for me (read more about it here).
My Nighttime Routine
I feel like all curly girls have a nightly routine for their curly hair! Mine is pretty specific but not as detailed as you might think. I always start by showering (if it’s a wash day), and then I wrap my hair in an old t-shirt (it’s better for curls than a towel), and go to sleep.
Once I’m actually ready to go to sleep (I try to get 8 hours or more every night), that’s when I start my actual nighttime routine! Growing up, I was ALWAYS a fan of the dentist. Even as a kid, I flossed every night and really cared about taking care of my teeth. I was especially cautious when I had braces!
I’ll start by brushing my teeth with Colgate® Zero Peppermint Toothpaste! As I mentioned earlier, I can’t get over how much I love this toothpaste being formulated with 0% artificial flavors, sweeteners, preservatives, and colors! In my efforts to use alternative products for my body, Colgate® Zero Peppermint Toothpaste is right in line with these efforts.
After I brush my teeth, I floss and use Colgate® Zero Fresh Breath Mouthwash! I think this mouthwash is great to use after you’ve brushed and flossed, because it kills 99% of germs. That means if you’ve gotten rid of most of them by brushing and flossing, this will take care of the rest!
Where to Shop for Colgate® Zero Toothpaste and Colgate® Zero Mouthwash
The best part about both of these products is that you can easily grab them in stores or online through the Walmart app! I shop at Walmart for everything I need weekly, so this is super easy for me. The best part is that Walmart also carries all the plant-based foods I’ve been eating and at a fraction of the cost! You can kill two birds with one stone.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! I had so much fun walking through my daily routine with you guys, and I hope it has you excited to try out the new Colgate® Zero products at Walmart. The most important part of my daily routine is making sure my breath is fresh, so I’m thrilled that I have these products to help with that!
