There are some days of the year that you wake up and everything feels like a wonderful hallmark movie. The kind where the light streams perfectly into your bedroom. You wake up to a crisp morning where you have nowhere to be and nothing on the calendar, other than things you want to do.
But there are also mornings where you wake up and you didn't realize, but you are out of coffee filers. You forgot to put your clothes out the night before so now you have five minutes to put together an outfit before going to work. And then, after you're too far to turn around, you realize you forgot the coffee, you had to scrounge together, at your house.
On those harder mornings here are a few things to help:
1// Remind yourself of the positive. Write on your mirror, or on the back of your door, an encouraging word to read outloud to yourself before you leave the house.
2// Wear your favorite perfume. This is definitely a go to for me! On the mornings where I wake up and I don't really "feel like it," I put on my favorite scent and it reminds me of travel and fun days and I immediately have a little moral boost .
3// Remember that every day is new, today is what you make of it! And if it sucks, there's a new try tomorrow. You can have a bad moment of your day, but that moment doesn't have to define your day! Take a quick lap around the block and clear your head.
4// Close your eyes and breath slowly three times. Balance out your breathing, its the simple things that help turn your day around.
5// Drink a glass of water. Sometimes it's just you being dehydrated from the night before that makes you a little more cranky.
6// Give yourself something to look forward to at the end of your work day. You can stop on the way home from work and pick up food for dinner, or go out with a friend for a drink.
7// Go to bed early that night. If you're not having the best day, set yourself up for success tomorrow and get a good night sleep!
8// Drink a cambucha or probiotic drink. Do something small that's good for your body. Keep your stomach happy!
9// Do something at the end of the day that makes you feel pampered. Do a quick 5 minute face mask, or make yourself a cup of chamomile tea before going to bed.
10// Do something that switches up the way you think. Two hours before going to bed, put down the social media and pick up a book, or paint something when you get home. When was the last time you painted something? For me, I honestly don't remember.
