How To Start Your Day Off Right

So who wants to have a good day today? Yep, that’s you all then – who wouldn’t?!
Sometimes the day doesn’t pan out how we’d like but we can sure try to have a good day right?
I always make sure I do these following things to have the best day possible. Even if it turns out crap, I can say I tried my best, cant I?!


Get a daily planner (YAY stationery!!)

Okay, this one technically starts the night before but meh, its an important one… Buy yourself one of those day-to-view diaries! I plan my day just before I go to sleep the night before by writing down things I need to do the following day. I don’t plan the day hour by hour, its kind of more a to-do list of the day.
It’s a great way to de-stress before bed and you can wake up and not worry about forgetting about things you need to do.


Wake up earlyclock

I know I know, nobody likes waking up early when they don’t actually need to but being in a routine every day helps me fit everything I need and want to do that day


Eat Breakfast

Not everyone is a breakfast kinda person, me included, but I do make myself eat something. I’ve noticed that if I don’t eat at all my brain is definitely not as alert and I am just generally more sluggish… I also write better blog posts!


Listen to a happy playlist

This really picks me up of a morning, I love finding ‘happy’ playlists on Spotify or listening to a playlist I’ve created myself full of my favourite songs.
Such a better way to start your day rather than watching news programmes full of doom and gloom!


Have a shower

You probably already do but having a shower in the morning helps me to wake up and face the day. Then there’s the obvious benefits, y’know like not worrying about if you have a bit of the old b.o when walking past that fit guy in work…


Drink water

This one is best to do all day… KEEP HYDRATED, omg I cant express the benefits of keeping hydrated enough to you guys. I’m so much more alert during the day and it actually gives me energy too. Not to mention the 1001 health benefits drinking water has.


Practise Yoga

My favourite way to start my day. Seriously, I love putting a ‘Yoga with Adriene’ Youtube video on my tv and switching off mentally. I cannot tell you how much yoga has helped me over the last year and a half since I’ve been practising. Yoga with Adriene is like doing yoga with your mate, she’s hilarious and her yoga routines are easy to follow. Please do check her out if you haven’t already, she’s pretty awesome!


There you have it, 7 ways to start your day off right! Have you got anything you do to get your day off to a good start?

    I hate waking up early but I do find that getting and staying in some sort of a routine, starting with an early rise does make me feel so much more productive!

    Waking up early is always on my list and I usually wake up at 8 am but I want it to push back it to 6 am AND I am struggling. Do you have any tips to wake up early without being all groggy and sluggish?

  5. These ideas are great Livvy, all positive and I can see how they will all help, I looked at Yoga by Adriene, she comes across as lovely so I’m going to give the 30 day thing a go! 😀Thanks for linking that x

    I really want to try yoga, but no way want to go to a class so will certainly be trying this. I love waking early now, is so peaceful and can get so much done plus in a crazy way you feel more awake.

      I hope you do try her vids, I’m not really keen on going to classes either so Adrienne is brilliant for me! Xx
