Over the 6 months or so I’ve incorporated some habits into my morning routine. Here are my 4 favorite healthy morning rituals to start your day on the right track!
While I probably have a few more things that I do, (like brush my teeth, brush my hair, wash my face…) I’ve decided to just include my 4 favorite healthy routines for a better morning in this post.
There are a few morning rituals that have become such an essential part of my morning routine. Doing these 4 routines in the morning helps me wake up, put some importance on myself in the morning, plus it helps me start my day in a relaxed state of mind. I also find my mind to be more clear and ready to take on whatever tasks I have waiting for me that day.
It’s become such a norm in our society to rush everything, including waking up in the morning. So many people run out the door and don’t even have time to enjoy breakfast (which is such a shame). So, as I have challenged myself, this year (2019.) I want to challenge you too. Simply think of the things you would like to change in your morning routines and create better habits which will help you to slow down your morning and take some time for yourself to practice your rituals!
Self-care should be practiced every day and because of it, I am sharing my favorite 6 healthy routines for a better morning!

After waking up, I always check my diary. At the moment I am using Jo&Judys a5 calendar which helps me keep up with my emotions, daily plans, and activities.
So with my early morning drink, I take 5 minutes of my time to write down my feeling and intentions for the day. By writing the quote of the day, helps me create a positive mindset, which will thrive me through the day.

I do know that a lot of people skips breakfast and I hear about them so often, but that is actually a bad habit /from my perspective). Why? Because half of those people end up in the bakery eating a pastry product instead of a healthy homemade breakfast. I mean, even if you’re not that hungry in the morning, try and enjoy a light breakfast, like a piece of fruit or a handful of almonds.
