Kick-Start Your Day With A Morning Routine
Mornings can be a beautiful thing. We know some of you are probably rolling your eyes right now, but it’s true! Mornings are the perfect time to ease into your day, get into a positive mindset and mentally prepare for what’s to come. Don’t get us wrong… not every morning is perfect. There are always going to be those days where you sleep through your alarm, spill coffee on your blouse, or can’t find your keys right before you head out the door. But, mornings don’t always have to be a last-minute frenzy. Getting into a consistent morning routine could be just what you need to start your day off right. Here are some of our favourite morning habits that we encourage you to try!
Wake Up Early
We get it, not everyone is a morning person. But, there is something so relaxing and calming about giving yourself some extra time in the morning to do what you love. Whether that means sitting outside in the backyard, watching an episode of your favourite show, or cuddling with your pets, adding that extra ‘me’ time to your morning routine creates mental relaxation that sets you up for a productive day. If you have a hard time waking up early, try setting the alarm just 15 minutes earlier and go from there!
Wash your face
The very first thing we do when we wake up in the morning is wash our face with the Altilis Beauty™ 3-Step Skincare System. By using the InflorEssence Facial Cleanser, InflorEssence Serum and InflorEssence Moisturizer every morning, we are keeping our complexion fresh. Washing your face in the morning helps to remove any dead skin cells and bacteria that have accumulated over night, gives your skin a boost of antioxidant and UVB-protective properties to protect against radiation and pollution, and replenishes the skin’s natural moisture barrier for a glowing complexion all day long. Not to mention that washing your face provides you with a much-needed jolt of energy first thing in the morning.
After a long night of sleeping your body is going to be in need of some serious hydration. Drinking lots of water in the morning is a very important habit to include in your morning routine. It even has a ton of benefits including kick-starting your metabolism, giving you energy, and keeping your skin nourished and hydrated all day long! Drinking lots of water gives your body the fuel and energy it needs to function at its fullest, making it the perfect addition to your morning routine.
One of the most rewarding habits that we include into our morning routine is to spend a few minutes every day to reflect on what we are grateful for in our lives. Not every day is going to be perfect, but when you have the opportunity to remind yourself of what’s important to you on a daily basis, those little hiccups or challenges you face during the day won’t cause you as much stress.
Drink Your Java
Need we say more? For us, coffee is a must for our morning routine. Like we said earlier, we love waking up early to enjoy a fresh brew in a state of peace and relaxation! Not to mention that if you’re in the habit of creating a healthy morning routine that allows you to start the day on a relaxing note, eventually you may not need to reach for that second, third or fourth cup of java during the day. We know it works for us. Check out our favourite blend right now.
Now that you’ve heard some of our morning routine habits, we hope that you to give them a try! Remember that in the end, what works for one person is not going to work for everyone. So, we encourage you to find what works best YOU so that you’re ready to seize the day!
