Wake Up Happier Everyday

I struggle to get going in the morning (I am sure we all do) but I have implemented some strategies that make the a.m. easier. I would never call myself a morning person, but I have no choice. The alarm is set for 6am Monday through Friday. I have to get up and get myself ready, get Kennedy ready, get Carter ready, make lunches, make breakfast for everyone, and of course do a million other things around the house before we leave. Thankfully I have found some ways to make mornings less hectic and more enjoyable. I hope they bring you some peace and make your days happier and easier.  Make sure you keep reading because I am sharing a coupon code with all of you!

Be smarter about your alarm. I have my alarm clock (my iPhone) next to my bed on my bedside table and I never press snooze. I set it, it goes off, and I get right up. You have to seriously lie to yourself. It is mind over matter, so just tell yourself you love mornings and you can't wait to start the day and you will convince yourself it is true. Just think of all the things you can accomplish by getting up and starting your day first thing in the morning.

Pull open the curtains or open the blinds. Light helps regulate melatonin, the hormone that tells our bodies when to wake and sleep. So let those rays stream on in!

Get exercise. I feel energized when I am able to start my morning with a work out. But the reality is that I can't do it every day. I always do at least a couple of stretches while I am making the kids pancakes or waffles. I also try to do lunges when I am blow drying or styling my hair.

Shut off those devices. I know it is so hard to do! But, you will say you are going to check Instagram for just a minute and before you know it is midnight! Give yourself a curfew and maybe try reading a book instead.

Have bedding that you love. It is so important to have wonderful, soft, luxurious bedding. My bedding is from Linens & Hutch. Protect your comforter and improve the presentation of your bedroom with this beautiful rugged stripes patterned 3-piece duvet cover set. Made with the finest microfibers, this classic piece is utterly soft and smooth. The duvet cover provides the highest quality due to its durability, stain repelling feature, and overall long lasting nature. Included in the 3-piece set are two matching pillow shams, along with the duvet cover.  I love it.  It is so soft and I have been sleeping so well.

Also, make your bed every morning. I know what you are thinking... it is just gonna get unmade again tonight, I don't have time, no one is going to see it, etc. But I believe making your bed every morning starts your day off right and will help you accomplish more tasks throughout the day. It looks and feels better, and for me it sets a good example to my children as well.
