How To Start The Mornings Feeling Positive

Starting the day can be hard especially if you aren't a morning person. I'm very much a morning person even more so now I have two children and two dogs lie-ins aren't possible anymore. 

I find getting up in the summer extremely easy as soon as the sun rises I'm up and out of bed between 4-5am with a spring in my step and all the motivation in the
world, but during the winter it's definitely not as easy.

I have written down my top 5 tips on how to be productive and start your mornings full of positivity and that get up and go feeling.

1. Shower 

Having a shower first thing really awakens me but to really make me feel pumped and ready for the day I play music. I have a playlist of music on my phone especially for that morning doom and gloom feeling!

2. Music 

As I mentioned above music is a fantastic way for inspiration, I may sing like a cat being strangled but listening to music and singing along badly really puts a smile on my face!

I also have set playlists on my phone for different things, for example, the morning playlist tends to be extremely nostalgic and cheesy music. For blog work I like to listen to calm and inspiring music and then for the car with all my errand running and school pickups, it's a full-on Disney broadway/karaoke spectacle! 

3. Get Planning 

Every night before bed I write down in a notepad or on my phone all the things I need to do or have for the next day. This allows me to sleep stress-free without worrying in the mornings one of the first things I do is to check my list which helps me with prioritising.

4. Breakfast 

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I have to agree, the days where I eat a nutritional breakfast are the days I have more energy and more motivation. 
For breakfast choose foods like porridge, eggs and even smoothies to start your day right.

5. Affirmations 

I have recently become a fan of the Law of Attraction, this isn't about finding love as a lot of people seem to think it's about. It's about how to manifest your dreams by leading a positive and happy life with gratitude and mindfulness.

Every Morning I spend 5 minutes reading positive affirmations, they could be about general happiness, money, work and even self-confidence. I  also like to search on Youtube for affirmations with meditation so  I can shut off for 2-5 minutes to absorb in the energy and the positivity. It always makes me feel happier and refreshed. 

So that's my 5 ways to start the morning with positivity, let me know what you do in the morning to feel positive and motivated for the day ahead.
