Very few things in life are as peaceful as early mornings. The air is cool, the sun is rising with all it’s beautiful colors, and the birds are just beginning to chirp. The worries of yesterday have faded away and the opportunities of today are on the horizon. I’ve always thought that mornings were the best time to think and create.
No matter how beautiful the early hours of the day are, not all of us are born with the natural ability to wakeup at 5am and immediately jump out of bed to soak up all the magic. We’d rather hit the snooze button until our responsibilities come creeping in and demand our attention.
If you’ve been trying to wake up a bit earlier but have been struggling to get up and get moving, here’s some tips that might help!

On Monday I mentioned one of the healthy habits you can add into your life this year is to take some time for yourself and love yourself a bit more.
It’s no secret that we live in a world filled with high expectations. Living in the digital-age has made it very easy to compare ourselves to other people. The truth is, as much as we know we should, it’s hard to love yourself when you’re constantly bombarded with images of perfection and impossible standards.

I’ve been thinking lately – the most ironic thing about life is that humans spend so much time preparing for it, trying to fix it, complaining about it, or being too busy to even live it. In reality, the moments that mean the most and the situations that inspire us are those moments that we are just at peace, living completely in the moment. Could life really be that simple?
When we were children, each day was an adventure. What If we lived today and each day with that same mindset of curiosity and wonder?

For some, even the thought simply enjoying the day brings up excuses like ” I can’t do this because ___ ” or ” Yeah, that easier said than done. It’s almost impossible to enjoy life when ____ ” It’s so unfortunate that we’re taught to set ourselves up for life and not live it. It’s not considered “normal” to live with the sole purpose to create something beautiful for the sake of enjoyment, make art daily, and spend time with loved ones. But why not?
