How you start your morning determines how your day goes

🌸🌸🌸

The energy you bring into your day can have a lasting effect on the rest of your day. Your intention, energy, and mindset should be used to your advantage at the beginning of each day so that you could live your day to your fullest potential and reach your goals more easily.

🌸🌸🌸

Ways to improve how you start your day:

🌸Before going to bed at night

-visualize what you want to do and accomplish during the next day. (Set your intention)

-Set an alarm for early in the morning (My sweet spot is usually between 5 and 6 a.m) If you have work/school, set your alarm for at least 2 hours beforehand. Those two hours can help a lot each day.

If you are someone who needs many alarms to get out of bed, set one half an hour before, one for 10 minutes before and one for 5 minutes before, but get up physically at the five minutes before one so that you still have 5 more minutes to get your act together… Remember to try overtime to get rid of snoozing.

🌸Waking up

-Wake up with a smile. I have found that this improves my mood and positivity tremendously during the day.

Each day is a blessing, and you can treat it as such with a smile.

-Don’t lay in bed longer, get out of bed.

-Make up your bed, because then you’ve already completed a simple task for the day, embedding discipline.

🌸Have a Morning Routine

P.S this is just the tip of the iceberg of the things you can do in the morning. Find a morning routine that suits you.

-Go over your goals for the day (mentally or already have a to-do list). Look forward to completing them; mindset is important.

-Meditate/Journal/Practice gratitude/Read. Do something to improve yourself mentally and/or spiritually.

-Workout for 5-30minutes. This is also a huge mood and determination booster for me.

-Watch a morning motivational video

-Listen to morning affirmations

-Drink a glass of water. Already have a glass of water waiting for you next to your bed.

-Don’t check your social media, you’ll get distracted.


I have found most of these things listed above very helpful to improve my day, productivity, and mood.

Hugs and why they are so damn amazing

Yesterday I was at an event and I met someone new, she was much older than me, still, there was an even admiration towards each other and a few meaningful hugs were exchanged and it reminded me of how much I miss those tons of hugs I used to have each day.

Then there were people that I knew my whole life long and every hug from them, long and short, were heartfelt.

There was this one moment I was a bit upset and just sat down outside, quiet and away from most of the people, and someone, who I also have known for long came and asked me if I was alright (she knew everything that went down) and then after I assured her that I was okay and just collecting myself, she pulled me into her arms and I immediately felt comforted, better, and much happier.

I knew I had to make a blog about hugs and then went and created a quick draft post so that I won’t forget. Hugs are truly powerful and like my heading said, pretty “damn amazing”.

Whenever I am having a bad day or is down, all I really need is a good long hug from someone I care about. What makes you instantly feel better?

Benefits of hugging

  • Hugs can make you happier.
  • Hugs are natural stress reducers.
  • It boosts your heart health
  • Can protect you against illnesses
  • Reduces fears, anxiety and even pain
  • Helps with communication skills
  • Improves relationships

The thing is when we hug, our muscles relax, oxytocin and endorphins get released, dopamine and serotonin levels increase… all these boosts your mood and relieves symptoms of depression.

How many hugs we need a day:

  • Hugs should last about three seconds at the least.
