March Featured Products: Create a Productive Morning Routine
Have you ever noticed how different your day feels after a particularly productive morning? Getting off to a good start can make a huge difference in your state of mind and your productivity for the ENTIRE day ahead. We get it… life it is too busy for “luxurious self-care” in the morning, but you’d be surprised at how many healthy habits you can fit into your day when you commit to a routine. If you’re tired of racing around your room, gulping down a few sips of instant coffee, then rushing out the door, these tips will help you slow things down. Here’s how you can restructure your life, by restructuring your morning!

5 Steps to a Productive Morning Routine

1. Try to keep away from your phone

First things first - stay away from the phone! Almost all of us start the day by scrolling aimlessly through our phones for a few minutes after we hit the snooze button. If you start the day by checking emails and messages, or even the news, you are setting yourself up for a day filled with stress. Instead of reaching for your phone, try hopping straight out of bed.

2. Get moving

A great way to release some early morning endorphins is to do a few minutes of gentle exercise first thing in the morning. Try doing a simple yoga vinyasa flow, or some light cardio movements. If you have time, you could even go for a quick jog around your neighbourhood. By getting your body moving in the morning, you’ll give your body the energetic and mental boost it needs to approach the day the right way.

3. Leave time for an indulgent shower

Your morning shower doesn’t have to be a race against the clock. Give yourself a few extra minutes to really enjoy your showers in the mornings. Find a few indulgent, feel-good products to use to make your shower all the more enjoyable. We absolutely love the Mill Street Jojoba Balancing Shampoo & Conditioner. Jojoba oil is great for locking in moisture and rejuvenating dull, tired hair. Plus… it smells absolutely divine!!

4. Enjoy a healthy breakfast

The food we eat has a huge impact on our energy levels, as well as our mental stability. It’s important to eat an energizing, filling breakfast to set yourself up for a productive and proactive day. We recommend trying the overnight oats from Yumi Organics. Overnight oats are a delicious meal that will provide you with a steady flow of energy for hours. Try adding berries, honey, or pomegranate seeds for extra flavour. If you feel like you could use a bit of a detox, why not try adding Goli’s amazing ACV gummies into your breakfast routine? These tasty gummies have a range of health benefits - they can help to lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation, and keep your bodily systems running smoothly. You’ll feel stable and balanced for the whole day.

5. Include something special in the routine.

Include something you really enjoy doing in your routine. Maybe this is a face mask, an exercise class, or simply reading the paper over a cup of delicious organic coffee. Organic Traditions has an amazing instant coffee that contains ingredients that support memory, focus, and creativity, so you’ll feel focused and sharp for the whole day.
