What's the first thing you do when you get out of bed in the morning? A well-rounded morning routine sets the tone for the day and gets you prepped—both mentally and physically—before you dive into a packed schedule filled with emails, chores, happy hours, workouts, and more. Our series Morning Person profiles those who have mastered the art of the morning routine.

If you follow wellness and fitness content on social media, chances are you’ll probably be familiar with Mari Llewellyn. The influencer, who documented her fitness journey on Instagram, turned entrepreneur, has parlayed her passions for health and wellness into two successful businesses. From creating the popular workout app, Slay, to co-founding Bloom Nutrition, a line of superfood powders that have gone viral on TikTok, Llewellyn is just getting started.
We asked the fitness entrepreneur how she starts her busy workdays. Keep scrolling to see her #1 tip for staying productive and focused all morning.
I always start with going on a run around the neighborhood with my pup Lulu, followed by some ab exercises from my workout app, Slay.
I love switching up my workouts — I will weight train most days a week but also incorporate pilates and long walks into my routine. It’s super important for me to get moving each day because it helps me stay focused and productive.
After my greens, I make myself some breakfast, which is two eggs, turkey bacon, gluten-free toast, and strawberries! I pretty much eat the same breakfast each day.
Time to shower and get ready for the day! I’ve had a long journey with my skin, I used to struggle with cystic acne, so now I am working on taking care of the acne scars. I’ve been really enjoying the products from the Jan Marini line.
After my morning skincare routine, I'll move on to some natural and fresh makeup. I start with my Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, followed by Ilia Super Skin Tint SPF 40. Next, I'll add Fenty Match Stix Matte Contour, my favorite Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush, and finally, fill in my brows with the Anatasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil and I’m good to go!
