Hello again dear readers! Today I want to write and tell you about how my mornings are and what I do to prepare for a new day. Perhaps it’s nothing special, but I thought some of you might be interested in reading it. Then, this is for you!
I go to work at right before 8 in the morning, so I usually wake up around 7. I have my alarm set at 6.45, but sometimes I lay down a bit extra to make my body wake up a little more. It’s a nice thing to do, just laying in bed and slowly waving your toes, lifting your legs, moving your head. I like to make sure my body is completely awake before I get up.
Once I climb out of bed, I start making my breakfast. Most often it’s just oatmeal with some berries and almond milk. I also drink a big glass of water as soon as I get up, and sometimes I take a cup of tea with my breakfast. When the oatmeal is cooking in the microwave I do some very simple yoga. I’ve been doing it since a year back and I have no plan on stopping! It gives me energy and my body feels better and I haven’t had any neck or back pain since I started. It’s really basic, just a few easy poses. I can explain it furthermore later when in another post.
After yoga, the oatmeal is ready. A stir and a dash of cinnamon together with some almond milk and more berries, and it’s ready to serve! It’s a great way to start my day, with some warm and tasty food. If I don’t drink any tea in the morning, I’ll take a cup once in the office.
I always make sure to sit down in peace to eat, and I don’t get up until I’m totally finished with my food. If I have anything in my mouth, I’ll sit down until I’m done. I think this is very important, because eating and being stressed is never good. Take your time and you’ll feel much better! After eating, I go and freshen up. Sometimes, if I got time, I’ll take a shower. Otherwise I’ll just get my hair done, perhaps put just a little make up on, and brush my teeth. It’s very much depending on how much time I have, but I always brush my teeth and make sure my hair looks kind of good.
After this, I get dressed and go off to work. I live close to my work so it doesn’t take very long time to get there. Also, taking a walk or riding the bike in the morning is really nice. I wake up even more, and I get some fresh air. Much better than sitting in a small car or in a crowded bus. Basically, my morning is about waking up very carefully, and making sure I’m ready for the day. I like my morning routine, and I don’t think it takes too much time either. If you have any tips or recommendations to what I can do better, or any tips really – please contact me! Until nest time, take care!
