As a variety of wellness experts, celebrities, and social media influencers swear by their morning routines consisting of everything from morning Pilates to journaling, one could say morning routines are now as popular as they’ve ever been. Daily routines for those who despise mornings and routines can also be found with a simple search. It sounds great to go from hitting the snooze button sluggishly to waking up feeling ready for a new day, but how is it possible? Reclaim your morning and kickstart your day by using the following six tips
A great morning begins with a good night. As you are clearing up dinner prep lunch for the following day; while you are relaxing, plan your outfits. These simple preparations will make you feel mentally ready to have a productive day. Be sure to give thought to your nighttime routine and do the same thing every night leading up to sleep. A good night’s rest will make #2 a bit easier to implement.
Wake up Earlier
Getting up early can mean the difference between a relaxed start to the day and feeling stressed or rushed. If you happen to be a night owl, start by waking up five to ten minutes earlier until you get used to it, then gradually increase until you are waking up at your goal time. Give yourself a little space to ease into your day. I recommend aiming for a full 30 minutes of slow sipping tea or coffee time before you have to start getting ready. The thoughts you have during those slow-moving 30 can set your mind in the right direction.
Elevate your Senses
A diffuser blend to set the tone for the day is a must-have for any motivational morning routine. If you are looking for a fragrance that will help you take on the day each morning, look no further. For a vibrant and empowering aroma, combine Peppermint, Citrus Fresh™, and Lemon.
