I've always been a morning person, ever since I can remember. I've always felt the most productive when I wake up around 6-7 and start my day productively. I always start my day with getting up straight away and making my bed, this sets off the day as already being productive and also stops you from getting into bed after because you've just took the time to make it, so why ruin it? (that's how my brain works anyway!). Mornings to me are my favourite part of the day which some people would find crazy to hear, I know a lot of people who don't wake up till after midday (which there is obviously nothing wrong with that but this is just a post for people that would like to start waking up a little earlier) and sometimes, I wish I could do that but I'm just not that person and I've kinda accepted that now and I'm actually so happy with how that has worked out for me.

Breakfast is key to a successful day and I know a lot of people don't like eating before a particular time, I would say to eat something - even if it's a few biscuits with your morning tea, it's something. Skipping breakfasts does nothing for me personally, I always plan my day around when I'm going to eat which sounds crazy, I know but it helps me - for example, after getting up out of bed and brushing my teeth, I always go downstairs and have some breakfast and this is normally a bacon bap or scrambled eggs and smoked salmon whilst watching some Youtube videos and this sets me up for the day as I'm where I'm going to be working and I've had something to eat to help me concentrate, because who wants to be doing work whilst they're hungry? Plus may I just add, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I really feel like it sets you up for a day of tasks and it gives you the energy to be able to do them. I may do a little post very soon for those of you that struggle with what to have for breakfast with a quick and easy ideas for you!
After eating breakfast, I always get ready for the day. Pyjamas are the best thing in the world, but not when you want to feel productive because you're too relaxed (especially if you work from home regularly) so I always think it is best to get ready as if you would be going to work, this prevents you from feeling like you want to sit and slouch and do nothing. If you don't work from home and you're just looking to be a bit more productive then you should definitely still follow these steps - make plans with friends, family, tidy your house/room or find little things to sort out, such as the bedside cabinet that you've been scared to look at for months (trust me, we've all been there - you're not alone!).

My morning routine is very chilled and relaxed, obviously depending on what I'm doing in the day but I always set my day off to be as I'd like them to be... productive and busy. I know this may sound crazy to people and this won't work for everyone but this is just my personal routine and the order I do things works for me but you will find your own little way of doing things but getting up and booking your day with little things makes a hell of a difference to your mind and I would recommend everyone to do this, whatever your job or whatever you decide to do during your days!
And finally, I always finish off getting ready for the day by applying some skincare, I try and make sure this isn't something too heavy and something that is just going to help me keep my skin hydrated throughout the day, I've recently been using the Nivea Light Moisturizing Day Cream with SPF and this has done exactly the job - it's very light on my skin and keeps the dry patches on my face making a reappearance!
