Tips for your morning routine

Mornings are never easy. But having a good morning routine can help calm your thoughts, organise your mind and start the day with a positive mindset. We have put together our best tips for your morning routine so you can start your day with a smile.

  1. Prep the Night before

    Make a list before you go to bed of everything that is on your mind or worrying you. By putting your thoughts down on paper, it can help to clear your mind and balance you. It can also help to put things into perspective and let you see things in a clearer light.

  2. Smile smile smile!

    When your alarm goes off, try and smile to face the day ahead. You will find this can help you to wake up more quickly and make you feel much more content and happy.

  3. Take a shower

    Showering in the morning helps to wake up your body and make you feel refreshed and revived. Using a shower gel with aromatherapy benefits can also help to enliven your senses and perk up your mood.

    We love the Elemis British Botanical Shower Cream which is infused with essential oils of Lavender, Geranium, Chamomile and Palmarosa to calm and balance your mood. We haven’t forgotten about the men either. Seascape Island Apothecary Homme Body Wash with its blend of Eucalyptus and Ginger is the perfect pick-me-up.

  4. Be grateful

    If you wake up grateful for all that you have, you will soon start to feel much happier. Make sure to appreciate that you have been given this life and the opportunities to pursue your dreams. Make a happy list of all the things you are grateful for and read them when you wake up.

  5. Drink lemon infused water

    When you wake up, make yourself warm water with lemon to help cleanse your digestive system and prepare it for the day. It will also help to flush out any toxins – which will give you boundless energy and lovely glowing skin!

  6. Practice Yoga

    Meditating in the morning can help centre your mind and balance your thoughts for the day ahead. Taking 10 or 20 minutes to practice yoga which will help to stretch out your muscles and wake up your body. That extra 10 minutes in bed won’t make you feel any less tired, but if you take that 10 minutes and use it to exercise your body, you will notice a huge difference in your energy levels.

  7. Smell incredible

    Start your day by using a scent which will uplift you and calm your mood. We love the Neom Essential Mood Lifting Kit which contains an on-the-go mist, a pulse point therapy treatment and a home mist so you can always feel happy wherever you are! Essential oils of Wild Mint and Mandarin help to encourage positivity and clear your mind; inspiring happiness and lifting your spirit.

  8. Make time for breakfast

    Making time to eat a healthy and balanced breakfast can help to prepare you for the day by boosting your energy levels. If you don’t have time to sit down, make yourself a quick smoothie and take it with you so you are filling your body with vitamins on the go!

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
