With the change in season means darker, colder mornings; making it even harder to get out of bed. I mean, who wants to get up and going when the sun is not even out?
Lucky for you, we have come up with a few tricks to boost your morning and beat the cold-weather blues!
1. Stay consistent
Try and rise at the same time each day. This way your body will be running on a natural clock, making you healthier and happier in the morning!
2. Don’t wake & scroll
It is so easy to reach for your phone to silence your alarm and immediately log on to social media. This will not only keep you in bed for longer but will also make it harder to wake up your mind.
3. Make your bed
I’m not trying to sound like your mother.... but make your damn bed! If you get up and make your bed you definitely won’t crawl back in. This is also a great way to get your body moving and blood flowing right when you wake up.
4. Get moving
The best way to wake up is with a little endorphin rush (in our opinion)! Leave your workout kit out the night before so you can wake up and jump right into them. Book yourself into an early morning class or lace up your trainers for a run.
5. Plan your breakfast
Two words: overnight oats, a buzzy topic in the fitness world. All you have to do is whip up a jar of oats the night before and you have a delicious breakfast to look forward to in the morning. Plus oats are full of fibre which will keep you full and energised all morning.
6. Listen to music
It has been scientifically proven that music stimulates your brain and releases happiness hormones! Switch on some of your favourite tunes and do a little boogie to wake up the right way.
7. Make slice part of your morning
