A good day starts with a good morning routine. As a believer in how you start your day reflects throughout the day, I always like to make the most of my morning and give myself plenty of time to ensure it gets off to the best start.
I’m naturally a morning person and find the first part of my day my most productive, so on weekdays I like to get up at 6am. The first thing I do is head downstairs and make myself a hot water and lemon.
Whether it be a cold dark December morning or a bright and breezy summers day, I put on my trainers and go for a brisk 30 minute walk or run. I love exercising in the morning, it works wonders on your energy levels and gives you a positive mindset (either I’m going to continue being healthy for the rest of the day or I’ve earned my 3pm cup of tea and cake!)
Next I’ll shower, do my skin care routine, make up and get dressed for the day, before making myself a nutritious breakfast. My current go-to breakfast is natural yoghurt with either berries or banana, sprinkled with crushed almonds. Delicious. I’ll sit down with my breakfast and coffee and plan my day ahead.
I’ve already achieved so much. I’ve treated my body to 30 minutes of fresh air and released so many endorphins doing so, I’ve indulged in a healthy breakfast, treated my skin and allowed myself enough time to make myself feel good by putting on my favourite lipstick, yet I’m still in the office by 8.30am motivated with a clear mind and a positive outlook for the day ahead.
Its amazing how just adding 30 minutes to your morning before you leave the house can change how your day turns out.
