Rise and shine gorgeous! It’s Monday bloody Monday again. And though sometimes I thoroughly enjoy starting the new week, I honestly hate having to wake up early. Admitted, when I am allowed to sleep in, I never do as I used to/as my brother does. I tend to be up and dressed by ten latest. But the fact that I háve to wake up early just sucks, it’s the ‘having to’ thing that makes me dread that alarm and hate getting up a gazillion times more. On an early Uni-day, I have to be in the train by 6, meaning my alarm is set at 5 (yes, it takes me an hour to wake up, shower, get dressed, pack my stuff and race to the station), which I would call a pretty inhumane time, no? But do you know what helps? Ha, there you have it again; a positive mindset. So, today..
11. Greet the day (and the new week!) with positivity (before getting out of bed)
Just take a moment to roll over, giggle and yawn into your pillow, hug your covers one last time, take a deep breath, SMILE, stretch and get your pretty little feet out of bed. Open your blinds, greet the sun, and go about your morning routine. As I told you guys last week, an absolute must for me is a hot shower in order to wake up. I set my alarm early enough to be able to shower for at least ten minutes, I need it more than an extra ten minutes of sleep. Then I turn on my radio (regular wake up time = the ‘crazy hour’ at the radiostation, meaning I wake up with Spice Girls, Tom Jones or happy songs music on a daily basis) and sing, dance and jiggle my way into my clothes. It’s the only way I can make it to the station with a smile on my face, grab that cup of freshly ground cappuccino and run (álways late!) to catch my train.
What is your morning routine? And how do you make sure you start your day positively?
