Let's be real. Mornings are hard.
I wish I could say that every morning I jump out of bed ready for a beautiful day, but the reality is that most people have to work hard to enjoy the getting up part of mornings and I'm in that majority.
Mornings are a great time to get things done and be productive. These are a few tips I've learned to help get me going in the morning. Hopefully these will help you too in starting your day off right.
Make Your Bed
Open The Blinds
Make A Yummy/Healthy breakfast
Plan Your Day
Read Your Bible + Pray
Make your bed <> I find making my bed in the morning helps me in two ways. 1) When I first
jump roll out of bed making my bed gets me moving and wakes me up a little. 2) Once the bed is make it's way less temping to get bed in it and fell asleep.
Open the blinds or windows <> Getting natural light into the room while getting ready is a great way to boost your mood and wake you up. If the weathers nice out, open a window to let the fresh air flow through and hear the birds chirping.
Make a yummy/healthy breakfast <> This is something to look forward to and something to give you energy and keep you going all morning. Take the time to make pancakes or enjoy fresh fruit rather than skipping breakfast.
Get outside <> This could be simply eating your breakfast on your back porch, going on a walk, stretching outside, or doing a full blown workout. Whatever you do, being outside in the fresh air and sunlight will definitely boost your mood and energy.
Plan your day <> Take a few minutes to write out your to do list for the day, check your planner for appointments, and maybe write a bit in your journal. Get it all out on paper to make your mind less cluttered throughout the day.
Read your bible + pray <> There’s no better way to start the day than with the Word of God. Set aside a few minutes each morning to read the Bible and pray. Trust me, you’ll set yourself up for a better day ahead when you take the time.
