4 SMALL STEPS TO MASTER YOUR MORNINGS.
The sound of an iPhone alarm is undeniably cringy to most. After all, mornings are tough especially when your bed is so warm + welcoming. Here at L’ABEYE we can relate — but we’re also here to help. Having a really good morning can set the tone for having a really great day, and I think we can all agree… we deserve more really great days. Here’s four small steps that we work into our morning routine so that you can feel like you’re kicking ass + taking names from the time you wake up, to the time you crawl back in bed.
MAKE YOUR BED
Nope, it’s not your mother on the other side of this screen. It’s the cold hard truth. (Okay, I’m being dramatic. BUT, it seriously makes a difference!) Making your bed not only inhibits you from crawling back in, but also ends your day on a positive note. It’s a simple productive task that can give you a small sense of accomplishment in the AM, but also give you something to look forward to when you get home. *peels back covers and dives in*
LET’S GET PHYSICAL
I know, I know. I just told you to make your bed, now I’m bringing up exercise?!? But it doesn’t have to be anything too serious. For some, this may mean going and hammering out a run, and for some this might be meditation/yoga/a 20 minute walk. Whatever it is you choose to do, let this be the time your mind gets to sort through some things and chillax before you get to going 90 MPH.
FUEL YOUR BODY
In the hustle + bustle of the morning its easy to forget to give yourself some fuel to go about your day. It’s not to say you need to go all in with eggs, bacon, pancakes…. (but if thats your thing, respect
.) We find smoothies do the trick for us, and if you’re really doing things right you’ll throw in a Blender Bomb
to really get yourself some fuel. Plus, smoothies are great on the go!
MAKE A LIST
I’ll admit it. I have a list problem. But now that I’m thinking about it, my so-called “list problem” is really just a whole bunch of solutions. Going over what you need to do for the day and making a list not only helps your brain sort through what it needs to get done + when, but it’s also so satisfying to cross off your completed tasks. Been there, did that.
