Start Your Morning off Right
Are you a hair on fire, running late, crazy ass morning person? LOL!

Or, do you give yourself enough time to enjoy your mornings?
Meaning… You get to enjoy that cup of coffee, some quiet time, and some nice tunes as you plan for your day accordingly.

I used to dread the mornings. Probably because I always stayed out way too late, never felt rested, chronically hungover, and always felt like I had nothing to wake up for.

Over the years those feelings and emotions have definitely shifted.
Now, I cherish my mornings.
I’ve created my own rituals.
I can’t wait to get up and start my day. 

I want to share with you a few tips to start your morning off right!



1) I know this might sound corny or cheesy, but when I first wake up I brush my teeth and rinse off my face. Something about fresh breath and hydrated skin that makes me feel refreshed and ready to start my day.

2) Do something that makes you happy!
I love to put on my favorite music in the AM.
This changes daily depending on my mood, but makes making coffee a lot more groovy.

3) Enjoy a nice warm beverage.
This can be coffee, a morning cup of tea, or some hot water with lemon and ginger. Take some time to just sip and enjoy. 

4) Have a scent-sational morning.
I love to light some candles and put on my diffusers in my office and yoga room. Something about creating different smells in each room makes me feel calm and relaxed.
Do you have a favorite scent?
If so, use that to start your day.
It’s instant gratification and will definitely put a smile on your face. 

5) Journal, Meditate or Move Your Body.
I can’t stress these three things enough.
I’m not saying you need to do all three, but pick one. 


Journaling allows you to brain dump and get clear on the day that lies ahead.
Meditation will allow you to get grounded, focused, and clear. 
To just be and feel present.
Then, moving your body will boost those endorphins and you’ll be guaranteed to have a day full of success.

All these morning rituals allow me to feel happy.
I want my mornings to be full of joy and intention.
It’s not too much to ask I don’t think.

I would love to hear how you spend your mornings. 

My mornings are my super duper happy place.
And, I can't forget my four chihuahua fur babies.
They do make great snuggle buddies. Hahaha!
