Mornings can be spent in so many different ways. Some people get up and rush through their mornings , thinking about all the things they have to do that day. Believe me, I know so many people that tell me they feel stressed the minute they get out of bed. For me, my mornings are my time, and I take pride in making the most of my time.
Journaling is such a great way to start your morning. I get my journal out with my cup of coffee and Start writing away about all the things I’m grateful for. I write down some of my favorite quotes that I live by, and it truly puts your day in a better peaceful place. It’s so easy to get caught up in the crazy chaos of the world. It seems there is always something going on around us. The only thing I have learned is that my life is the only thing I can control. You can either be happy and stress free , or you can walk through your beautiful day being stressed out about things that are out of your control. It’s your choice.

Drink Lemon Water
I start each morning with a large glass of lemon water. It just is something that I have been doing for so long and it instantly is a great start to my day. It restarts my metabolism and helps to flush toxins out of your body. I usually warm it up and place a nice lemon wedge in there. It is so refreshing.
I usually start my day with morning stretching before heading to my workout. It helps relax my muscles and it’s just a great way to say hello to your day. It helps me feel better during my workouts and helps to prevent injuries. I do avid yoga, but there is something about a morning salute.
