With darkness streaming in through the window, it can be a challenge to trade the warmth and coziness of your bedroom for the colder temperatures outside. If you have a hard time jumping out of bed when your alarm goes off at this time of year, we’re here to help. A few tweaks to your morning routine can make starting your day something to look forward to. Try these tips, or just a few, to reset your morning and start the day feeling refreshed and ready.
In the Bathroom
Most people start their day in the bathroom and having an organized one can help the morning remain stress free. Make your routine easy with a wall mounted or standing storage unit with adjustable shelves, so you can keep essentials out of sight but easily at hand. Use a pretty a countertop bath accessory set to corral stray items like cotton swabs and toothbrushes. If a hot shower is your go-to for warming up on cold mornings, stock up on plush towels to wrap up the heat a little longer.
In the Kitchen
Sitting down to enjoy breakfast on a work day might seem a bit luxurious, but it’s a morning habit worth forming. Stock the fridge with fresh fruit and yogurt for quick to assemble parfaits which look beautiful in white bone china dinnerware. Not only is it incredibly durable, but bone china keeps food warmer longer on the plate and in the mug – which is essential for that first coffee of the day.
In the Bedroom
To start your morning off on the right note, it is equally important to establish a good nighttime routine. Make your bedroom a serene escape by putting away phones and iPads before bed. Invest in bedding in a colour or pattern you love and don’t forget about the pillows and duvet. A temperature enhancing duvet helps regulate body heat throughout the night, making for a more comfortable slumber. Establish a consistent bedtime that gives you enough sleep to wake up feeling rested in the morning.
