5 steps to start your day!

"Mornings can be really tough. The reality of the aching body and the worries come back like a boomerang. Sometimes the night wasn't even restful, and you start the day with a lot of energy already drained.
It's time to leave the depths of your bed and jump into the wobbly adventure that is your life.
For those days, I have 5 rituals to start off smoothly:
1. Gentle: Giving myself time, right there, as soon as I wake up, savoring the first rays of light from the bottom of the bed.
Check on myself by asking "How do I feel today? "and think of at least one nice thing that this day could bring me.
2. Self-care: Take a trip to the bathroom to take care of myself! Freshen up my face, do some gentle gestures around my eyes to help my skin deflate. We can also choose to look into our own eyes, and say a nice thing or two. Kindness begins with you!
3. Full presence: Drink a cup of herbal tea while observing my environment or my bunny frolicking and return to the simplest of things.
Reminding myself that life is just that. Warm water in the morning helps to complete the body's elimination cycle.
4. Pleasure: Continue reading a book, watch videos, respond to my friends.
This is my procrastination time to rekindle positive emotions and motivate me to start the day. I follow up with writing my todolist.
5. Move: do some stretching, take a walk outside or just tidy up.
It allows me to tidy up my brain as well as my space!
And you, what is your morning tip to start the day?
