5 Life changing ways to start your day..
ONE: Before you even get out of bed, I recommend taking 5-minutes to mini-meditate. Setting your alarm just 5 minutes early to do this can set you on the right path for the day by allow your mind to become still and free of life's clutter from the start. Just 5 minutes to listen to your innermost feeling, to experience the space within that harbours a precious peace. If you're not sure how to begin this practice then I invite you to try this 2-minute meditation tomorrow with me.
TWO: Start the day off with warm lemon water to rehydrate, get your vitamin C intake & kickstart that metabolism as you wake.

THREE: Ever watched an animal as it wakes? They don't jump straight into the day without taking the time to stretch it all out. What a beautiful example they are! Let's take a couple of pages from their book & set aside at least 10-minutes every morning to show our bodies some much needed TLC.
Try this FREE 10-minute morning yoga routine, and let me know how it made you feel.
FOUR: Fuel your body in the right way. One of our favourite breakfasts is to pre-make a chia pot the night before to save time.

FIVE: Keep a journal. Every morning, write down a positive affirmation - a word, a quote that you love or a goal for the day ahead. It's also important to write down your to-do list to help keep stress & aniexty at bay - that way you can tick off what you've done, making the day's chores seem less daunting.
It's the best way to start your thoughts off on a postive & meaningful path.
