During term time we have a routine that we follow every day, day after day! If we want to tell someone about it, we can use these phrases:
Me despierto. - I wake up.
Me levanto. - I get up.
Me lavo (los dientes). - I wash/brush (my teeth).
Me ducho. - I have a shower.
Me visto. - I get dressed.
All these phrases are REFLEXIVE - that means that you do them to yourself, which explains the me part. Me lavo literally means 'I wash myself'.
Me lavo. - I wash (I wash myself).
Me baño. - I bath (I bath myself).
Other things you do every day aren't reflexive:
Desayuno. - I have breakfast.
Hago la cama. - I make my bed.
Salgo de casa. - I leave the house.
You can make longer sentences with these phrases. For example:
Me despierto a las siete. - I wake up at 7 o'clock.
Me ducho y desayuno. - I shower and have breakfast.
Salgo de casa a las ocho. - I leave home at 8 o'clock.
