Do you have a good morning routine that charges you up for the day ahead?
Did you know that how you spend your mornings can impact your entire day, week, month and even life?
We know you’re working very hard on your business, full-time in the office or studying - juggling it all while raising kids.
Your mornings can be busy, hectic, unpredictable and, it seems, all you can do at this point is simply keep your head above the water hoping for the storm to pass soon.
It is 100% possible to wake up on a Monday morning and feel energetic, content, in control and ready to take on the day with a big, bright smile on your face. Too good to be true? Not at all!
The secret lies in your morning routine!
If your morning routine is structured and filled with things that nourish your soul, body and make you happy then you’re on the right track to having a productive day.
We are very excited to share with you our bullet proof formula for an energy boosting morning routine!
Wake Up Early
Good morning is a peaceful one!
If you’re a busy mum, for example, then it would be a great idea to set your alarm an hour or two before your kids’ wake up time to set your intentions for the day ahead, have a cup of coffee, do your skincare routine - do everything you’ve always wanted to without interruptions and hurry.
When you wake up before sunrise, you can’t help, but feel like you are already ahead of your day - you have a chance to start your day on your own terms rather than playing catch up.
Tips to help wake up early:
- Make a firm promise to yourself to wake up and start your day early.
- Set an alarm and don’t hit the snooze button, no matter what.
- Sleep early.
- Gradually adjust to your new wake up time by waking up every single day 10 minutes earlier than the previous one until you reach your desired wake up time, then stick to it.
Start your Day with Gratitude.
Gratitude is a straight path to happiness and bliss.
In order for us to feel happy, we need to program our mind to think positive and uplifting thoughts and the best way to do that is to practice gratitude.
- Count your blessings
- Have a Gratitude Journal and write entries every single morning
- Look at your sleeping family members and let your heart fill up with gratitude for how much love, joy and happiness they bring into your life.
Take a moment, be present, let go of worry, feel the gratitude in your heart and soul!
Practicing gratitude daily will charge you up with positivity and give you a much-needed energy boost first thing in the morning.
Have a Cold Shower
Yes, you heard us right! Now it’s time to WAKE UP.
We have been introduced to cold therapy and the benefits of it through Wim Hof Method. We have experienced the positive impact of taking cold showers every single morning in our own life.
Cold showers help you wake right up, stimulate and boost your immune system as well as increase your alertness and develop unshakable discipline in the process.

Move your Body
Do something active every single morning. Go for a walk, a swim, get that work out in at the gym or in the comfort of your own home - even 30 mins can make a huge difference in your day!
If you go for a walk, you start your day with fresh air, clear mind and better mood.
If you get your workout in, you start your day with higher energy, lower stress levels and an undeniable feeling of accomplishment.
If you do your workout outdoors, you get the best of both worlds.
Have a Nutritious Breakfast
Having a healthy, nutritious and, most importantly, yummy breakfast is a cherry on top of your morning routine.
A healthy plate of food full of colour will give you good quality energy. By this point you’re as energetic as you can be, bursting with happy hormones, grateful to be alive and enjoying this brand new day to the fullest.
You can handle whatever the next 24 hours have in store for you as you have set yourself up for a successful and productive day!
You feel GREAT inside and out! Imagine feeling like this every single day of your life. Imagine how much you can accomplish!
The truth is - when you feel good about yourself and confident in your own skin, your work becomes inspired and focused, your relationships thrive and the quality of your life significantly improves.
One of the key components to achieving this daily bliss is incorporating an energy boosting morning routine.
