I have never been a morning person, and although many people have said that will change after having kids that hasn’t been the case. Do I have to get up earlier because of my little rugrats? Yes. But do I thrive in the morning and do so with glee? Generally speaking, no. Haha.
In spite of the struggle, I want to maximize my mornings to the best of my ability. So I’ve asked the strongest mother I know (my mommy of course) how she powers up in the morning, and these are her top 3 suggestions!
1. Make Your Bed
My parents always had us make our beds in the morning, and my mom reveals it was more than a chore or torture tactic. 😉
Making your bed is an automatic “win” as you start your day. Who doesn’t like to begin their morning feeling accomplished? It also brings a sense of organization to your space, and if you’re anything like me, cluttered surroundings can make you feel cluttered as well.
2. Get Dressed Right Away
As a work from home mom it’s easy for me to delay this part of my morning routine. However, my mom highly suggests getting dressed as soon as you’re up, so that you’re ready for anything as you face your day. I find this to be true, and am glad I took this piece of advice from her the other day when I completely forgot about my OB/Gyn appointment. There’s no way I would’ve made it on time if I hadn’t been up and dressed!
Plus, it helps you avoid the feeling of being rushed, which reduces your stress as you set out to accomplish your daily goals.
3. Add Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen to Your Morning Drink
You don’t have to be on a keto diet in order to take advantage of the many benefits of keto collagen. Like most moms, my mother is constantly on the go, and wants easy ways to incorporate healthier lifestyle choices.
Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen is dairy, soy and gluten free, supports a healthy gut, healthy joints and healthy skin! You can even enjoy it whether your beverages are hot or cold, without worrying about it having an overpowering taste.
This grass-fed beef collagen has been combined with medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) from coconuts, making it the perfect way to power up my very own super mom, and you and yours too!
