This one is easy, the moment you wake up – give thanks for another day. Even easier than that, thank yourself for having the courage to face another day.
Have a Little Peace
The best way to start your day is with peace of mind. Keep your morning calm for a few minutes. Just BE. Don’t start planning, don’t turn on the tv, and do not look at your phone. Just BE – enjoy the small amount of time you get to be free in the mind. Try to give yourself at least 15 minutes of free space, even if you have to wake up a little earlier.
Plan Your Day
After you’ve found a little bit of peace, plan the day. Think about the things you want to achieve for the day and set a mental schedule. If you have timing issues, make sure you give yourself even more time. Be sure that you factor in a little bit of time to do something for yourself. Whether it be reading time, working on a goal, or simply applying a face mask.
Water Yourself (and your plants or pets)
The first drink you have should be 8 ounces of water. If you’re fancy like me, infuse with fruit the night before (or meal prep for the week) so you’re always prepared.
Create a Vitamin Routine
I’m aging in theory, so I take vitamins religiously. Vitamins for my skin, blood, and gut. Consistency goes a long way, vitamins aren’t an every now and then practice, it takes about six weeks to notice any difference, and after that, you’ll wonder how you lived so long without feeling so great. I recommend at least a multi-vitamin and a good probiotic for the digestive system.
