Morning Routine to Start Your Day Right #MondayMotivation

by - July 16, 2018

Hey, lovelies, it's Monday and that means it's time to be productive and start your week right. A month ago or so, I started (and unfortunately didn't continue), until now, a #MondayMotivation tag on my blog. I decided to bring it back and give you a close up into my morning routine which I started using recently and I've been loving, too.

1. Hydrate

The best way to start your morning right is to hydrate yourself. Every morning I start with a glass of lemon water. It helps me to improve my digestion and kicks starts my metabolism and it's pretty tasty, too. You should definitely give it a try.

2. Meditate

This one is life-changing. To meditate first thing in the morning gives you a sense of focus and understanding of what you will do on the following day. And it obviously relaxes you. Just take 20 minutes off of every morning, that's it, only 20 minutes and you can truly improve your life.

3. Plan ahead

After I drink water, I make tea (but you can have your wake up coffee if you'd like). Then, I get my bullet journal. And take 5-10 minutes off of my morning to plan my day, week or even a month ahead. I think setting goals in life is very important and writing it down gives you a sense of better knowledge on focus on what you want to achieve.

"The distance between our lives and our dreams is called action."

4. Have a healthy breakfast 

Today, I had this oatmeal. I just poured oats with 15-calorie coconut milk. I didn't expect it to be that low-calorie, by the way! If that isn't a reason for you to ditch dairy, I don't what is. Then, I put the oats with milk in the microwave and let it warm for about 1 and a half minutes, maybe 2. And when it cooled down, I was ready to eat it. Usually, I put fruits on top, but I didn't this morning because I didn't have any available. And to be honest, after a workout, I don't wanna rush to the grocery store so quickly. 

5. Put on your makeup, get dressed and get ready for the day

After everything, it's time to get polished. Put on your best dress or shirt, get your makeup on fleek and go outside, make this day the best day possible!

How do you spend your mornings? Should I add something to the list? Tell me in the comments.

If you want to see my makeup routine, let me know below.

  1. Love everything about this post, I definitely am going to start meditating in the mornings. xxx

  2. Interesting post! Would you like you follow each other?:)

  3. I followed you here on Disqus and Google+ ❤️

  4. I usually have all these plan, but just end up sleeping longer. But I have started drinking loads of water, and sometimes with lime/lemon. I also did meditation for a while but fell out of that routine. Reading other peoples morning routines (like yours) really inspire to try again, and try harder.

  5. I’m glad it inspired you! I fell out of the routine sometimes as Well, but mostly I stick to it :) Thanks for the feedback, Namra💕

  6. There's a lot more to your morning routine than mine. I kind of... roll out of bed, shower and get ready to take on the day. I should probably use some of your ideas! :P

  7. Haha yeah, I should add some things as Well like exercise or yoga, but we’ll see about that😂

  8. A morning routine for me is a must, I feel so lost if I don't sit down and plan my day! I love working out in the morning rather than meditating, however, I've wanted to start getting into it in the evenings to relax and unwind a little. Great post! x

  9. All of these are important habits to incorporate! When you wake up, the last time you drank water was before you went to sleep. It makes a big difference! Your oatmeal looks super delicious! Thanks for sharing your morning routine! :)

  11. I gotta start working out! But meditation is cool too, you can do it any time of the day, it doesn't matter. Thanks <3

  12. You are right that we need to start our day right.
    I love to drink water and plan my day ahead.

    Much Love,
