Usually I wake up on my own, between 5:30 and 6:30, but I always set the alarm as a backup at 6:33.
After getting out of bed, and going to the bathroom, I drink a glass of water, and make a 15-20 minute Yoga session.
If you never did Yoga before, I recommend Lesley Fightmaster (yes, that’s her real name) . She has a 30 day yoga challenge for beginners, which I enjoy very much.
Her voice is so soothing and she always ends the videos with a quote to inspire you for the day. You can check her challenge here.
After yoga, I prepare some herbal tea, and eat breakfast.
The breakfast I usually prepare the night before, in a small jar. It consists of multiple type of seeds , including chia, soaked in banana or apple smoothie, with cinnamon or cacao powder.
I once saw on social media a quote that said “Don’t trust a person that never drinks coffee”. I hope it was just an advertisement scheme because I never drink coffee ! Caffeine agitates me and honestly I can see a use for it if you have to do something that you don’t enjoy and you need a violent kick to force yourself to do it.
Would you still need it if you would start the day working at something you are truly passionate about? Just wondering..
There are a lot of people addicted to it, and they drink it even when they had a good night sleep. Without it, some experience headaches or other unpleasant symptoms.
In such a scenario it must be hard to give up coffee, but if you are really determined you can do it, and replace with green tea , black tea, a smoothie, a fresh juice or even a simple apple.
If you are not willing to give it up, that’s ok too, accept it and make drinking coffee a relaxing habit in which you embrace life with every sip.
Speaking of relaxation, my top favorite drink in the morning is chamomile tea. Mmmmm…….
It calms me down when I am stressed and I noticed that I’m more productive and full of energy when I’m calm.
Still body, empty mind, ready to embrace the day, and receive fresh ideas from the Universe.
Much love to you all.
