5 Morning Moments Every Girl Needs!

Everybody likes a lie in and morning’s can be hard work if you don’t get enough sleep. It can be impossible to convince yourself to actually get up, especially if you’re doling out your precious time for a shower, choosing your outfit and doing your makeup and hair. But it’s important to make the most of your mornings, they can help determine the rest of your day and lay foundations for better habits and a more productive week. If you’re struggling to make the most of your mornings, here’s five morning moments every girl needs!

#1 Water
It’s important to rehydrate yourself after a night’s sleep. So as well as splashing your face with cold water, you should try to drink some. Add some sliced fruit to your water and put it in the fridge overnight for a delicious and healthy drink in the morning.

#2 Breakfast
Never underestimate the importance of breakfast. It stops you having hunger pangs before lunch and can give you a burst of energy for the rest of the day. Make sure you have a breakfast packed with nutrients and vital ingredients to give you a spring in your step for the rest of the day.

#3 Stretches
If you’re so inclined, doing some brief stretches in the morning will help limber you up for the rest of the day. Use an app like Yoga Studio to do stretches at home, it gets the blood pumping, improves your posture and can banish a number of health problems.

#4 Visualise
Take a moment to think about the day ahead of you and focus on the positives. Even if you’re dreading the day ahead, think of all the little happinesses ahead of you and try to make sure you’re feeling good about this day.

#5 Socialise
It’s nice to get some chatting done in the morning, you don’t want to be boxed off with colleagues all day feeling anxious and stressed, so don’t compromise your socialisation. Having a giggle in the morning can help you relax and realise it’s not the end of the world if you have a bad day!

    Water and stretching are huge! I try and remind myself to do this everyday. I find my skin looks so much better if I have a glass of water before I go to sleep and when I wake up :)

    I find that going through my schedule for that day and organizing my room and belongings before I leave gets me really motivated to be productive. Great post!

    I make the most of my mornings by enjoying a cup of coffee while watching some YouTube videos, before my boys get up.

    These types of posts always are so aspirational for me. But I can never execute :( I just love sleep too much.

    Breakfast and lots of green tea is key for me. Without the two, I can’t even get going in the morning! :)

    The importance of a morning routine cannot be underestimated. I feel so much better when I wake early enough to take my dog on a long walk, drink hot lemon water and make a green juice. I feel so much more energized even if I get less sleep!
