Tools of the Trade
Last week I told you to dream big, and this week am I’m going to share a little behind the scenes of how I do just that. I know I love to hear about what other people are using to make their lives easier and more fulfilling.There are so many apps, tips and tricks nowadays I thought I would share some of my own in case you were needing a little inspiration to try a new way.
When it comes to the tools I use every day to help me stay motivated and continue to keep creating, I rely heavy on a morning routine. It changes a little week-to-week or month-to-month, but it’s basically the same idea.
I keep a big glass of water next to my bed (in a glass jar because no plastic bottles in my house!) and drink the whole thing upon waking. Think about it you just slept for 6-8 hours (hopefully) without any water. Your body is thirsty even if you don’t think so. Sometimes I put some lemon too because it’s great for the digestion.
Everyone talks a lot about gratitude and I know it sounds obvious but it truly makes difference in my day. You don’t have to write it down, I find just thinking about all the things I have and appreciate in the world sets my day off to a sensational start.
I don’t get to exercise everyday but I do move my body in some way even if it’s just for 5 minutes. Stretching, yoga, taking a walk all feel really good for me and being outside is another plus.
I don’t believe in diets but I do believe in eating food that makes me feel good. This usually looks like a smoothie. It’s easy on my system early in the morning and gives me the energy to tackle the day. I love adding lots of green veggies, banana and protein powder.
I hope this helps you if you’re looking for new ways to start your day. It doesn’t take a lot of time or energy, just some intention.
Till next week,
