Good morning sunshine! As a Danish girl living in Canada, I know the importance of having a solid morning routine. And let me tell you, every time I don’t have one, it’s like the day just disappears into a blur of stress and chaos. But, when I stick to my routine, it sets the tone for a productive and enjoyable day.
So, how do I achieve this flawless morning routine? Well, here are my 5 tips for creating a happy and healthy morning routine, just like the ones we have back in Scandinavia:
Wake up at the same time every day – Yes, I know, this is easier said than done. But trust me, once you get in the habit, you’ll never look back. Waking up at the same time every day helps regulate your internal clock, and you’ll feel more refreshed and energized.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate – Start your day by drinking a big glass of water. Not only will it wake you up, but it will also rehydrate your body after a long night’s sleep. Bonus points if you add some lemon to it, it will give your immune system a boost!
Give Gratitude & Set Intentions – Start your day by acknowledging what you’re thankful for and setting clear intentions for the day ahead. Write down 5 things you’re grateful for and 5 things you want to achieve. Celebrate your accomplishments and start each day with a positive outlook! Remember, you’ve made it this far, so give yourself a pat on the back and focus on what you have to be grateful for. And who knows, writing down your intentions may just give you that extra push to tackle your to-do list with ease!
Enjoy a healthy breakfast – A good breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it sets the tone for the rest of your day. I love making myself a bowl of oatmeal with fruit and nuts, or a smoothie with some spinach and berries.
“Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning can often tell you what kind of day you are going to have.” – Lemony Snicket
Plan your day – Take a few minutes to plan out your day, write down what you need to do, and prioritize your tasks. This will help you stay focused and organized, and you’ll feel more in control.
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
