my 10-step morning checklist

Today I thought I would share with you my 10-step morning checklist so I have the best day ever. I was always never a morning person, always a night howler. But recently things have changed since I have switched up my routine. It's made me have some good days, some the best even. So here are my 10 tips...(these are not in any order btw)
(1) Set out your clothes the night before: I've recently done this so it saves me rushing around in the morning finding my clothes. It also saves so much time in the morning.

(2) Wake up earlier: Set your alarm for 15 minutes earlier than you're used to. This was tough for me as hitting that snooze button on my phone was a bit of a habit.

(3) Go to the light: I wear a eye mask to bed every night as I heard it helps get rid of bags from under your eyes. So I never see the sunlight until I take them off. What I tend to do is open my blinds and stare out the window just for a couple of seconds. Sunlight is the best motivator to wake up.

(4) Drink water: The best way to jump-start your body first thing is to drink a glass of cool water. I now keep a bottle of water beside my bed every night so that when I wake up in the morning it's the first thing I drink.

(5) Get ready: Go for a shower and follow your regular beauty routine.

(6) Set one goal: Stop and meditate on setting one goal for the day.

(7) Leave on time: Strive yourself to leave 5 minutes earlier than you normally do for work, school or university.

(8) Eat breakfast: The amount of times I used to go without breakfast but there is always somewhere in your town that can make a fast breakfast so you can grab-and-go. If not have a cereal bar while on the go.

(9) Pre-pack your lunch: Most people already know to pack their lunch the night before. But to save some more time in the morning, fully pack it in the bag you'll carry it in. Include your drinks aswell, then leave in the fridge ready to go. If you want to add an ice pack, that should be the only thing you need to add in the morning.

(10) Play music: Music helps get everyone moving and motivated to wake up and start the day.

Are there any other things that you do to help the morning run smoothly?

  5. I've always been a morning person & I definitely agree with all of these points you've mentioned! :) Especially setting out your clothes the night before really does help. Whenever I don't do it I just can't decide what to wear & get super stressed out! x
