Happy Monday Babes! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I’m definitely curious what everyone is doing at home. We need some more ideas for at home things to do. Currently, I have been doing a lot of binge watching, house projects, and cooking. My husband, and I are currently getting the patio all cleaned up and prepping for an outdoor movie night this weekend. Last week I was so busy with work and feeling a bit unmotivated. I realized I needed to get back on track this week, so I’m sharing with you 5 ways I help myself get and stay motivated.
The first thing I do when I get up in the morning is wash my face and brush my teeth. I love the fresh feeling of being clean, and the water helps wake me up. I like to use my cold facial roller with my serums and lotion, because it helps de-puff my face. This helps me get moving in the morning.
HAVE A CUP OF COFFEE
Sometimes I don’t even finish a full cup of coffee, but mentally I need it. This past week I picked up some coconut sugar, oat milk, and coconut Reddi-whip, so I have been making my coffee with that. I think the bit of caffeine gets my brain kick-started and I’m more productive.
I have some vitamins that I take in the morning, and some I like to take at night before bed. I realized that if I take too many in the morning it gives me an upset stomach. I feel much healthier though when I am taking at least my multi-vitamin and my probiotic.
DRESS FOR SUCCESS
I could easily sit around in my pajamas all day. However, I feel much more motivated when I get dressed. Sometimes that means putting on a dress and heels, and sometimes it’s just a tee and joggers. Either way, I think getting out of your bed clothes and into something else is very helpful for getting your day going.
When you get your body moving in the morning, it gets your blood flowing and wakes you up. Sometimes I just do a neighborhood lap with the dog while I drink my coffee. And then other days I make the time for a 15 minute cardio workout. Make sure you move your body for a minimum of 30 minutes a day and it will help you stay motivated.
Tell me one thing that you do to stay motivated.
