In this post I talk about:
While you might think that mornings are not your thing, and you’re more of a night owl like I used to be, these tips might change things a bit. If you want to set yourself up for the best day you can have, every day, why not start off big with a luxurious morning? We all like to have the queen or king inside us happy, right?
You might not want to do them all at once, but I’m sure that including at least one of these in your morning will make you feel great and be a super nice start to your day.
PIMP YOUR WATER
There are tonnes of advice out there about how important is to hydrate first thing in the morning. So, why not make that glass of water more unique and turn it into a health boost with a note of luxury? This is something that needs to be prepared the night before if you want to take full advantage of it.
GIVE YOUR MIND A GOOD BREAKFAST
Another common advice is to read in the morning. While that’s, of course, good advice, so we can have a moment of quietness and inspiration before our to-dos absorb us, what we feed our minds with is of great importance. And considering that, I must say newspapers are a total no-no. Other ideas of how you can feed your mind a good breakfast in your luxurious morning are:
INDULGE IN SILENCE
This is probably my absolute favourite of all time. There is nothing more recharging than to sit in silence and give ourselves the time just to be. I’m talking, of course, about the powerful practice of meditation. Something so simple and yet that people so many times find so difficult. All it takes is the act of sitting with the intention of watching the breath. In more detail:
MAKE YOUR BODY FEEL ALIVE
The best you can do is to pump up your heart rate, but if you’re not a fan of jogging, do at least something that puts you in contact with your body. Things that can help you with that are:
GIVE YOUR BODY A RICH BREAKFAST
I’m Portuguese, so a simple coffee and toast were my breakfast companions for a long time. Until I decided that my body was important enough to deserve a little better. Without much of an effort, it's possible to give ourselves what we need and start off the day a little (or a lot) better. Here are some of the best foods to include in your breakfast, if you’re looking for a happy body-mind:
Extra tip: if you think you don’t have time to prepare big breakfasts, why not put a bunch of things together in a powerful morning smoothie?
