If the morning hours aren’t your favorite part of the day, you might have a thing or two to learn from today’s blog post. From learning something new each morning, to getting your workout over with early on, here are some ways to make your morning perfect.
My mornings are still in survival mode with an 8-month-old being the main focus of the AM hours, so my routine is hardly streamlined. But I’ve learned that what’s even more difficult than taking a few minutes to clean up the house when I’m exhausted is trying to do it before coffee.
Get your workout over with early.
I know, it sounds insane—especially since a lot of the time, my work hours are pretty flexible and I don’t necessarily have to do my workout at the crack of dawn. When my workout is finished at 6:15 am, I spend the first few quiet hours of the day getting started on tasks that I know I might normally procrastinate on later in the day.
Feed your morning.
This might sound silly, but finding a breakfast that I absolutely love and am excited to make and eat is one way that I can get excited about the mornings. Whether it’s my Fab 4 Smoothie or an amazing omelet, knowing what I’ll be having for breakfast in the AM (and being actually excited about it because it’s delicious) can really help get me out of bed.
