5 Enjoyable Morning Rituals Worth Waking Up For
Are you a morning person? Me
neither. However, I often think about how much we miss while lying in bed,
postponing the start of the day. Recently, after realizing that I have too much
on my plate – work, studies, chores, etc., I’ve decided it’s time to change my
lazy habits. I started waking up and hour earlier and you won’t believe how it
changed my life! Today I’ll share
with you my list of enjoyable morning stuff that I now have time for (and it feels great!).
“If you wake up early and take a mindful look at
the day, you’re setting yourself up for a world of enjoyment.”

Enjoy Your First Cup Of Coffee
If you are a
coffee lover you know how much it means for you to get your daily fix. Not only because it
helps you open your eyes, but because it wakes up your senses with its deep aroma and rich flavor. Getting up a bit earlier allows you to experiment with different recipes – add some coconut milk to your coffee, or some cinnamon and nutmeg… or some ice cream, why not?
If you are a
tea drinker, having time to
actually enjoy your “hug in a cup” is precious. Not to mention that preparing your tea is a very special ritual – it helps you start your day feeling balanced and inspired.
Do Some Yoga
Or any other sport you
like. Moving your body will boost your mood, make you feel toned up and even more
beautiful (yes, morning sport activities improve our self-esteem). No one said
you have to do “Insanity” (remember that insane 40 min cardio workout?), though
if you feel like it – why not? Even 15 minutes are enough to improve blood circulation,
feed your brain with oxygen and give you energy to meet the day.
No Adrenaline Rush
Have you ever thought
about how great it would be if you don’t get that unpleasant (at least for me
it is quite stressful) adrenaline rush when you don’t have enough time to get
your stuff together, before leaving the house. What to do first – put makeup
on, get dressed, have coffee, grab a bite, walk the dog or collect my stuff (that
is usually all-over-the-house)? Getting to know the feeling of having enough
time to do everything that needs to be done made me realize how much energy I’ve
wasted through the years. Who needs
stress that early, anyways?
Pamper Your Skin
How often do you have time
for a face mask in the morning? Never, right? When it comes to my beauty
regimen, I have the following mantra “Loving your skin and taking good care of
it, always pays off!”. So, as well as you find time to make some tea, watch the
morning news and take a look at the newsletter, why not find some time for a
beauty treat? Applying a hydrating mask in the morning is my all-time favorite!
It adds lovely glow to my skin and makes it look plump and dewy – any makeup
you put after that, literally melts into your skin. Your BB Cream/Foundation
will blend with ease and you get a flawless finish that will give you
confidence during the day.
“La Mav’s DNA Phyto Guard Mask is antioxidant-rich mask that re-hydrates the skin while gently exfoliating to reveal a radiant and evenly-toned complexion! The Mask is formulated with Pink Clay and Moringa Seed Extract to absorb impurities and deeply cleanse the pores, withdraw toxins, and leave the skin smooth and purified. The restorative powers of Vitamin E, Sea Buckthorn and Acai Oil in this mask increase moisture-retention and skin suppleness.”
Put Some Makeup On
C’mon, let’s be honest –
you like the person you see in the mirror after you have applied some BB cream,
gloss and mascara. But you don’t always have time for that, do you? Why?
Because you prefer staying under the sheets for at least 30 minutes after the
annoying alarm interrupted your sleep.
Though we would all agree that you don’t
need makeup to feel beautiful, some bronzer will definitely brighten your day. After
all, who would say no sun-kissed, radiant skin? Be the sun that lightens up
your own day!
“La Mav Sunkissed Bronzer provides a beautiful natural sun-kissed glow to your skin all year round. Perfect for contouring facial features especially cheekbones nose and chin. Simply buff the Bronzer with La Mav Vegan Kabuki Brush and you’re ready to go with a natural bronze look.”
