To all those of you out there, who read this blog regularity (or at least read my Sunday's posts), it is a well known fact that I am a Morning Person.
The very first thing I do is "that water thing" - drinking a glass of warm water first thing in the morning is an excellent way to get my body going. You want the water to be warm so that it’s not a shock to your system first thing in the morning. Some folks like adding lemons; by all means, if you have them - do so, it will help get your digestive system ready for the coming meals.
Second thing to do (in my opinion) is to stretch your body, to give the world a "hug" - elongate your arms as far out as you can and inhale the morning's joy. It will get your blood running, and make your body realize bed-time is over.
Then more water. Cold water - for my face. I like to splash cold water on my face after morning cleansing. The chill in the water work two-ways: it closes the pores and prevents the facial skin from absorbing the environmental dirt particles (thus preventing my acne) and it's a great boost.
Have you ever wondered what would
a lady from a days-gone-by
devote her morning to?
I love breakfast. It is my favorite meal of the day.
Some people warn of the dangers of having a big breakfast. On the other hand, there are those who advocate it. I have grown up in a home where breakfast was a "must"; before anything else. It's where to power comes from, it's the fuel for your body, and "You should never leave home without having your breakfast" - I can still hear the words.
With my breakfast on one side, I have my morning reading (and/or writing) on the other. I like to empower myself in the morning, to get in a good mood . That is why I never recommend reading news in the morning; surely there's much better choices (a friend's blog posts, your bible chapters, few pages of your favorite book or magazine...)
Then - a day can start. :)
Time is an essential of our lives.
You and I all know that there's that infamous "time is money" saying. But, time is much more than that. When properly planned out, your time can be your best friend.
How do you spend your morning?
