WELCOME TO ANOTHER SELF CARE BLOG FORM OUR SERIES WHERE WE’LL TALK ALL ABOUT CREATING HEALTHY HABITS AND A INTENTIONAL MORNING ROUTINE TO HELP YOU START YOUR DAY WITH KINDNESS AND EMPATHY.

SELF CARE SERIES PART 5: Coming soon…

Do you struggle to get out of bed in the morning? How about losing your energy by midday? Do you experience brain fog in the morning or lack of motivation? Well you are not alone.

Cultivating a new daily habit that benefits your mind, body, and soul like an intentional morning routine can be one of the best thing to help you start your day with energy but when it comes to practicing it, there are a lot of obstacles that get in the way. When it feels too difficult, we tend to give up or make excuses about how it just doesn’t work for us. That’s why we really need to have a quick and easy morning routine that will energise and inspire us.

Here are my tips to help you create an intentional morning routine you’ll love if you’re currently struggling to make it happen.

  • Make sure you get the write amount of sleep
  • Wake up at least two hours before you have to start working
  • Avoid starting your day by going on social media
  • Stretch or workout
  • Have quiet reading or journaling
  • Meditate for at least 10 minutes
  • Make a wellness drink and breakfast

If you’re finding hard to create an intentional routine you’ve come to the right place. I have created some powerful *morning and night experiences*, to help you live an intentional and wonderful life.

Let’s talk about one of our the quickest morning routines which is perfect for those who do not have too much time in the morning but still want to take few moments for themselves so they can start their day energised. Our Kindness Self Care Package was especially designed to promote a mindful experience as well as an intentional morning routine. Designed as a thoughtful reminder to pause for a few moments to drink a cup of tea and meditate.

Start your intentional morning routine and feel ready for the day to come by following these simple steps:

green tea by niche tea

Wake up with at least 30 minutes before everyone else and find you favourite spot to spend the morning on. Brew yourself a wonderfully delicate green tea, combined with a medley of herbs and tropical fruits for a refreshing blend that nourishes the senses.

WHY GREEN TEA?
A cup of green tea first thing in the morning boosts focus and concentration. The drink’s mind-sharpening properties are partially due to the presence of caffeine, a stimulant shown to enhance attention and alertness. However, unlike coffee and other caffeinated drinks, green tea also contains L-theanine, an amino acid that exerts calming effects.
L-theanine and caffeine work together to improve brain function and mood — without causing the negative side effects that may accompany consuming caffeine on its own. For this reason, enjoying this tea first thing in the morning is a great way to start your day off on the right foot.
 

kindness prompt cards by the school of life

While enjoying you tea read some Kindness prompt cards which are designed to bring out our better natures. They present us with a series of thoughts that nurture our sympathy, our powers of compassion, and our appetite for forgiveness. They return us to who we always want to be and deep down already are: kind people.

HOW TO USE THE KINDNESS CARDS?
Read randomly through the cards to evoke your better self, always lurking in the wings.
You can keep one close at hand, on a desk or fridge, as a constant reminder to be kind.
Give one to a friend or loved one to thank them for their kindness (or to gently remind them to be so).

sicilian lemon shortbread

We’ve found a good company for your tea. Get a taste of the Sicilian Lemon Biscuits which flavour is a heavenly contrast between the sweetness of shortbread and the sharp taste of citrus. They are simply delicious!

Now you’re ready to face a whole new and exciting day full of surprises.

Hope you love quick and easy intentional morning routine will make the time to practice self love everyday.
