HOW TO CREATE THE PERFECT MORNING

05/10/2016

Maybe it’s my rapidly increasing age – BRB while I cry into my lavender scented, floral blanket – or just that I am a major granny in a 20 something’s body, but there is nothing I love more than taking the time to create the perfect morning. Mornings are my time. I mean, getting up at 5:30am/6am always feels like death but once your body and mind has actually woken up, there’s nothing like the perfect quiet time to yourself to set you up for an amazing day ahead.

Luckily for me, the babes at Tempur – i.e queens of Mattresses and comfort – feel the same way and put on a (ridiculously fun and lovely) event all around creating the perfect morning, so I decided to take some tips from said event, and my own little somethin somethin’s too to put together a post to help you create your own perfect morning too.

I’m still working out how to kidnap and force McDreamy/Harvey Specter/[insert your own choice of dream man here] to join me for said dreamboat of a morning but I’ll keep you updated.

Lol, I wish I was joking. I really wish I was…

A good night’s sleep 
There is no such thing as a perfect morning without a pretty damn amazing sleep. Oh sleep you big fat babe, you! And I really wanted to give you a few tips because as a lot of you will know, I suffered terribly with insomnia for years, tried CBT, hypnotherapy, just about everything and I’ve finally found what works for me.

A healthy breakfast
If you’re anything like me, the temptation to demolish a fry up/pancake stack/bowl of bacon in the morning is oh so strong, but starting the day with a healthy (but obviously still delicious af) meal will just make you feel so much more alert and ready for the day and not at all sluggish. Tempur had the most Instagram worthy Granola, fruit, yogurt and toppings station – yes I said “one of everything please” and no I’m not sorry – and not only was it so delicious, but it really did set me up for the day.
Yoga
I’ve practised yoga a few times now but I have to say, the incredible lady at the event – I so wish I knew her name – did the most insane class that I’ve ever had. It was still very zen and not too intense, but she also came round and massaged out knots in the middle of poses too (I’m now considering hiring someone to massage me every morning, any takers?) and I left the session feeling so calm and collected and ready to be a girl boss (until I realised I had toilet tissue stuck to my trainer the whole time #nailinglife). But it was honestly incredible and something that I really need to incorporate into my life. Yoga is so amazing for your mind, body and soul and there’s nothing like looking after yourself to start your day off right.

Morning Mantra
I know what you’re thinking, when did Elle turn into a raging tree hugging hippie but hear me out on this one. Our Yoga teacher told us to say one nice thing about ourselves at the end of practice. At this time, I’d had one of the busiest and most challenging months of my life. I had the most manic day ahead and I just couldn’t help but for once sit back and reflect and say “actually girl, ya done good. You work your butt off, and it’s kinda paying off”. And I really hope that doesn’t sound arrogant or self indulgent, but one thing I realised is that we all lead such busy lives that sometimes we forget to stop and take a moment to realise that we achieved so much. So yeah, every morning, say something kind to yourself, pick out things you’re grateful for and I promise you you can’t not feel positive.

So that brings me to the end of my little perfect morning post. I honestly don’t think there’s anything better than falling into the most insanely comfortable bed at night, waking up so refreshed and taking the time to start your day in the most perfect way. 

I would love to know what makes a perfect morning for you? Is there really anything better than a bed that feels like you’re laying on clouds? 😉 I always love hearing your thoughts!

As always, thanks so much for reading!

    Great article! I hope this helps a lot of women out there.

    Fix your marriage and relationship after a breakup or divorce, 100% guarantee Love spell..! A very big problem occurred in my Marriage seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited. I sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me, and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past 7 months, gave me a call to inform me that he is coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there if you have any problem contact Dr Trust, i give you 100% guarantee that he will help you..
