Having the same old morning routine can have you not wanting to get out of bed in the mornings. Doing the same thing over and over again can be tiresome so shaking things and adding a sense of luxury to your morning routine will not only make it more bearable, but enjoyable.
Doing something new, no matter how little is good for your mental health. Adopting just one of these methods can completely change the game in the mornings.
Adding A Sense Of Luxury To Your Morning Routine
Wake up earlier
Having more time in the mornings to yourself can transform the early hours. Sleep inertia is a regular part of waking up, but it can make it more difficult to focus and stay productive if you’re up and heading out the door straight away.
Becoming an early riser not only gives you more time in the day but can dramatically improve your mood. So, you can say goodbye to those morning grumpies.
Get creative with breakfast
Eating an exciting breakfast can help you set up the mood for the day. Skipping breakfast results in your metabolism slowing down and having less energy throughout the day. Whether you opt for a healthy or more indulgent option, it’s the most important meal of the day and helps boost your alertness.
To make your early mornings even more special, you could invest in a coffee press or machine to get the most out of your first cup of coffee. You could also have something a little more interesting to eat to make you more excited to get out of bed like pastries or overnight oats.
The health benefits of morning exercise are endless. It can help you avoid distractions, make healthier decisions, and sleep better the following night. You’ll also get to reap the mental benefits for the rest of the day as early exercise increases the secretion of neurotransmitters that boost mental clarity, and you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment.
Early morning exercise might sound daunting, especially if you’re already up first thing. Be patient with yourself and remember to fuel up before hitting the gym or going for a run. Your workout should then be followed by a cold shower as it has many benefits for your skin and body.
Upgrade your skincare
Skincare is a key element of a rejuvenating and calming morning routine. It helps get rid of any impurities that have built up in the skin overnight or anything left over from your night-time skincare routine. Your morning skincare regime doesn’t have to be complicated, and it sets your base before applying any makeup.
It’s definitely okay to go makeup-free some days, but if you like to look a little more made-up before leaving the house, you need to ensure your skin is hydrated.
Invest in a smile
Having good oral health is a sign of good maintenance and taking care of yourself. Investing in your teeth is a good investment in yourself as a healthy smile can provide you with an array of benefits. These range from good self-esteem to fewer trips to the dentist in the future. You can eliminate morning breath with a water flosser, alongside mouthwash and good quality toothpaste.
