Are you the kind of person that snoozes your alarm for an hour, scrolls Instagram for another 20 minutes and at the last second finally jumps out of bed in a rush to shower, change grab a coffee and run out the door for work?
If I'm being honest, even now with a pretty solid routine...I still have mornings like this. It's only natural! But what I have learned is that when my morning is rushed and hectic, it sets me up for a day full of chaos, feeling out of my body & I am unable to make the best decisions for my body and mind.
Slowly, I have realized that when I slow down in the morning and take the time to become one with my body & mind, I am in control of my day and much more aware of the choices I make.
What my morning routine looks like...
I try to keep my wake up time consistent, around 8am each morning I am slowly getting myself out of bed.
I immediately drink a large water to wake up my body, followed by a warm water with lemon. Sometimes I add Apple Cider Vinegar and Cayenne for an extra digestive kick.
Meditation is key. This calms & clears your mind and allows you to create the pace of your day. It also helps me to bring positive thoughts to the forefront of my brain.
Once I have done all of this, I can start my day with a protein filled breakfast of either eggs + avocado, probiotic coconut yogurt, a big smoothie or a breakfast salad.
