Although some of you probably live by the motto “early to bed, early to rise,” there are probably just as many of you who opt for “late to bed, late to rise.” At times, enjoying the morning can seem difficult if not impossible. For those mornings when sleeping in is not an option, here are some ideas on how to start your day the right way:
TEXT A VINA
Send your bestie a quick text, like a “Good Morning” Bitmoji or a pic of your outfit. Make it a daily tradition. Having a quick convo with your bestie will surely put a smile on your face because it always does, even in the morning.
WORK ON A PROJECT
According to some of the greats, right after you wake up is when your creative juices are most freely flowing. Try working on an activity like journaling or drawing in the morning. You’ll leave feeling productive and inspired.
EAT A HEALTHY BREAKFAST
There’s a reason eggs and toast are breakfast staples. Dietician and nutritionist Elisa Zied says a healthy serving of proteins and carbs will satisfy your hunger and give you that quick, much needed energy boost.
GET AMPED IN ADVANCE
The night before, make a mental note of all the happy things awaiting you the next day. It can be as minor as the thought of your name being called out by the Starbucks barista. Getting out of bed will hardly feel like a chore.
WAKE UP TO WHAT YOU WANT
The urgency of alarm clocks rouses some people out of sleep immediately. Some people favor music or radio talk shows to ease them out of their slumber. Even though you can’t necessarily wake up when you want, you should at least be able to wake up how you want.
