Do you have a morning ritual?
A particular way you like to spend those early hours of the day that help to start your day right?
A Typical Morning in the life of #flavourfoodflow
I wake up to the sound of a super obnoxious alarm, pounding from my phone that’s about two metres away from my bed.
Whilst no doubt waking me up, having the phone parked far from my bed means I have to physically get up to turn it off. And once I’m up, well, there’s no reason to get back in bed.
I then quickly get changed into my workout gear, motivating coloured tights, and head out the door for my morning walk. I listen to a lot of nostalgic music, so I pretty much reflect on incredible memories for a whole hour. It’s amazing!
As mentioned in yesterday’s post on Morning Walks, I like to always have an end goal. For me, it’s a hot morning coffee from The Boathouse in Balmoral. I give myself 30 mins to enjoy the coffee, and write my daily blog post. Talk about an incredible office space…
Once I arrive back home, feeling rejuvenated and energised from the fresh air and post-exercise endorphins, I begin my routine.
- Hot water and lemon
- Big glass of water
- Herbal tea
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin B
- Magnesium Citrate (dissolved in water)
Common Breakfast Choices:
- Green Smoothie (with protein)
- Chia Seed Pudding
- Eggs & veggies
I then enjoy my food with no distractions, as I’m super big on digestion and ensuring that each mouthful is mindfully eaten.
- TIP: I know it sounds silly, but aim for about 30 chews per mouthful… At least! This will help you to slow down, and also reduce that post-feed bloat.
I attend to all my social media tasks on Instagram and Facebook whilst I’m finishing off my hot beverages.
- TIP: save all your old jars. They make smoothies, teas and even water that much more enjoyable to drink!
By now, it’s about 8/8:30am and I’m ready to get changed and get moving!
So. What’s your new morning ritual?
