Hey, lovelies, it’s Monday and that means it’s time to be productive and start your week right. A month ago or so, I started (and unfortunately didn’t continue), until now, a #MondayMotivation tag on my blog. I decided to bring it back and give you a close up into my morning routine which I started using recently and I’ve been loving, too.
The best way to start your morning right is to hydrate yourself. Every morning I start with a glass of lemon water. It helps me to improve my digestion and kicks starts my metabolism and it’s pretty tasty, too. You should definitely give it a try.
This one is life-changing. To meditate first thing in the morning gives you a sense of focus and understanding of what you will do on the following day. And it obviously relaxes you. Just take 20 minutes off of every morning, that’s it, only 20 minutes and you can truly improve your life.
3. Plan ahead
After I drink water, I make tea (but you can have your wake up coffee if you’d like). Then, I get my bullet journal. And take 5-10 minutes off of my morning to plan my day, week or even a month ahead. I think setting goals in life is very important and writing it down gives you a sense of better knowledge on focus on what you want to achieve.
“The distance between our lives and our dreams is called action.”
4. Have a healthy breakfast
Today, I had this oatmeal. I just poured oats with 15-calorie coconut milk. I didn’t expect it to be that low-calorie, by the way! If that isn’t a reason for you to ditch dairy, I don’t what is. Then, I put the oats with milk in the microwave and let it warm for about 1 and a half minutes, maybe 2. And when it cooled down, I was ready to eat it. Usually, I put fruits on top, but I didn’t this morning because I didn’t have any available. And to be honest, after a workout, I don’t wanna rush to the grocery store so quickly.
5. Put on your makeup, get dressed and get ready for the day
After everything, it’s time to get polished. Put on your best dress or shirt, get your makeup on fleek and go outside, make this day the best day possible!How do you spend your mornings? Should I add something to the list? Tell me in the comments.
