10 ways to start your day on a high!

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit”

Here are 10 tips on how to kick start your day with ease and positivity!

1 – My day always starts with a little luxury – my favorite coffee. & before I do anything I take 10 minutes of quiet time to really savoir it. My mum bought us a Dolce Gusto for my birthday and it’s my favorite kitchen accessory EVER!! Nothing perks up a blonde’s morning like a Nescafe Americano with skimmed milk!!

2 -  Rise and Relax! I always aim to get up at least 90 minutes before I leave the house so I can take my time to get myself together with ease and I always start my day with a hot pamper shower! January is always my favorite month for showers too because I nearly always have a tonn of Bodyshop products gifted to me over the holiday season! Yes… I do shower before & then again after the gym, yes I know it’s weird but I like to feel fresh before I start my day, whatever I’m doing.

3 – Avoid social media for the first hour of your day – get your get up and go on with some peace and quiet, a clear mind and no distractions. You’ll be amazed how much quicker whilst being relaxed you can get ready without it!

4 – Prep your outfit the night before – there’s nothing more frustrating than having to rummage through your drawers looking for a matching pair of socks at 5am – have it sorted and ready to go.

5 – Make sure you have your food prepped the night before – this will help you to make healthier choices with your food throughout the day with ease.

6 – Make the bed! Nothing beats coming home to a clean apartment and made bed – set your evening up in advance with a warming entrance after a long day. Even at your most stressful points of the day - you still have that to look forward to!

7 – Take your vitamins with a glass of cold lemon water! This is especially important if you have an active lifestyle or are on any form of calorie restrictions. I take 1 Myprotein active woman multi vitamins every morning. The lemon water is high in fibre assisting your digestive system speeding up the metabolism for some healthy morning bowel movement! Double win!

8 – Exercise! Training first thing in the morning means I skip the traffic, save petrol, starts up my metabolism earlier in the day and that hour of me time before I head into the office leaves me feeling like I’ve already accomplished something #Winning before 9am!

9 – Review/set your goals for the day – and at the end of the day write down 3 things you have accomplished through out your day. Make this a daily ritual and you will be smashing through those new year’s resolutions before you know it!

10 – Smile, at everyone you see. Even ‘those’ people, who don’t wish you well, or smile in return. Smile, and do it for you. Do it because you’re a good person and it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks you are going to have a great day and your positivity shines from the inside out!
