I’m not a morning person at all but at some point even I need to get out of bed. A couple of weeks back I decided to change my morning routine and it was the best decision ever. Now I actually enjoy my mornings, even the early ones! So how did I get here? I’ll tell you.
Start your Morning right
I do know there isn’t only one right way to start your mornings but I can tell you what has worked best with me. I loved to linger in my bed for at least half an hour or more and snooze a little bit more but with that I would like loose so much time. So I made a change. When my alarm clock goes off I will stay in bed for another 15 min but not longer. I like to check my messages and brows on Instagram whilst in bed. Then I get up and either have a shower, do my Pilates workout or just go straight for the breakfast.
You might not know this but I hardly ever ate breakfast on a weekday. I just wasn’t hungry or felt the need to eat something. Other with my drinks. A good morning is only a good one when I had my tea! My fave is peppermint tea from our own or my grandmothers garden.
Eat your Breakfast
Yes, eat your breakfast! You heard me right. It might take you a while to find the food that works for you but I found mine. As I said , I used to skip breakfast on a regular basis but that has stopped now! To give your body some fuel for the coming day is so important and will kickstart your mornings just right. I love my muesli bowls! Usually I have a chocolaty/ fruity muesli with some natural yoghurt. Sometimes I’ll add some honey too or switch things up with a vanilla or berry yoghurt.
Here you can see my custom mixed muesli from mymuesli with a chocolate based muesli, raspberries, cherries, coconut flakes & chia seeds. It’s just yummy – and you can even name your own muesli so I know have a Blogger Muesli. If you don’t wanna create your own mix, mymuesli have a great range of their own mueslis.
Get Active in the Morning
I think the biggest change for me and my morning routine has definitely been the breakfast and getting out of bed “as soon” as my alarm goes off. This way I’m getting my blood flowing and I’m just ready to start work with so much more energy. On two days of the week I’ll do some Pilates before breakfast (love the workouts from Blogilates). It’s not just good for my body but my mindset benefits from it too. (If you wanna know how my skincare routine in the mornings is head over here).
Now I enjoy getting up and small changes really do help if you are struggling to get out of bed in the mornings. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still not a morning person! On weekends I will have a big lay-in. However my mood and attitude have changed! I’m getting up with much more ease and my muesli bowl is always a nice pick-me-up in the mornings.
So how is your morning routine? Feel free to tell me in the comments down below or maybe you even have some more tips for me.
