Have you ever noticed that getting out of bed on a Sunday morning is nearly always easier than prizing yourself from between those warm and comforting covers when Monday rolls around? Of course, Monday mornings are never going to be quite like Sunday because there is work and all of your other weekly responsibilities to think of. However, there are some tactics we can use to make not just your Monday mornings but make your weekday mornings more effortless. Keep reading to find out what they are.
DO WHAT YOU LOVE FIRST
Now, you are probably wondering what identifying your most important value has to do with getting you out of bed in the morning. Well, it’s all about seeking out what makes you tick and the one thing that you will get out of bed for. Of course, that doesn’t mean that we get to spend our whole day doing that one thing. However, allowing ourselves the first 10 -20 minutes in the morning to do what we love can make your weekday mornings more effortless and bring a whole lot of difference to each and every day.
With that in mind, if you love to read, get up, and read the latest novel of your choice in the kitchen. If what you adore is art, get up as soon as your alarm goes off and head to your desk to complete a quick drawing or painting challenge. Then you will be up and in a great mood, ready to carry on with the rest of your day.
MAKE TIME FOR BREAKFAST
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and eating the right things early in the morning can really make a difference to how the rest of your day goes. To that end, choosing a healthy and nutritious breakfast is important indeed.
That means it’s probably best to drop the sugary cereals and the highly processed breakfast bars. Instead, why not try whipping up your own morning meal that contains healthier ingredients like chia seeds and fresh fruit? Your body and mind will thank you for it!
ENHANCE YOUR COFFEE EXPERIENCE
For many of us, coffee is the thing that transforms a tough morning into a more bearable one. However, the problem with the massive popularity of coffee is that the stuff you can buy in stores is all a bit generic and bland. It just doesn’t have the oomph to satisfy the more sophisticated coffee drinker’s pallet. Fortunately, it is possible to use online retailers like Just Fresh Roasted to source flavourful and novel coffee beans and brews. Ones that will both wake you up and delight you, even on the grimmest of Monday mornings!
GET PREPPED THE NIGHT BEFORE
Last, of all, you can make Monday and every other morning run that much smoother by taking the time to get prepped for the next day the night before. This means having a bath or shower in the evening before bed, making a packed lunch, and even picking out your clothes and makeup. Indeed anything that makes those first 30 mins easier to manage is a worthwhile activity. Even if it is just setting out your work bag and laptop, so you don’t have to search for them when Monday morning rolls around.
