Mornings go one of two ways, they are either magical or I should go back to bed and try to start the day all over again. My husband (Shawn) and I never yell at one another, it’s something we stopped doing long ago. Every now and then, one of us wakes up cranky, and start a fight. It’s not that we don’t love one another, or cannot get along. Honestly it does not happen often, but when it does WOW! See whoever is out of bed is cranky, and jealous because the other one is still laying in bed, so the mutter things, toss stuff around, and anything else it takes to get the others attention, until BAM – million accomplished! What could have woken up in a good mood and starting your day out right is gone!
I know, we are adults but it’s just not fair if he starts it! Really it’s all silly, but it happens silly as it is. Thankfully, the longer we stay together the more we learn about one another, and how to let things go. We both know if something happens in the morning to just let it go, and don’t look back. If either one of us bring it up it’s because we want to laugh at out silly we acted. Neither one of us is negative people, nor are we hateful, and I am glad that we are able to leave those types of arguments alone.
As I get older I have learned there are certain things that help me stay focused on the day ahead of me, and not allowing myself to be upset because I am awake. It helps me be in a better mood the entire day, and I feel like I am setting a good example for my children. The last thing I want them to see is mom stomping around because she isn’t happy about which side of the bed she woke up on.
Over the years I have learned there are certain things I can do to help start my morning out right, and continue to have a good day. Having things to do in the morning helps keep me focus on what I am doing. If you are struggling to start your morning out right here are a few things that have helped me feel great in the morning.
Plan your mornings
Now you don’t have to grab a notebook and plan our every itty bitty detail, but a little planning helps. I will plan things I need to get done in the morning – pay bills, go to the grocery store, meet up for playgroup, or a mom daughter date I promised Mattie.
Sun in my windows, and the smell of coffee from the kitchen
Let the sun shines in! It’s so much easier for me to wake up naturally, with the sun in shining in my windows. Not only that, but it helps me wake up in a better mood. If I am super lucky the sunshine in my windows is accompanied by an awesome scent of brewing coffee. I love waking up about 15 minutes after my husband, when the coffee is going and the sun is shining in the windows. It’s perfect, and it always puts a smile on my face!
Don’t jump out of bed
Rather than jumping out of bed, allow yourself a few seconds to stretch. There is nothing like a morning stretch to loosen your muscles . I love stretching my entire body, from my neck all the way down to my feet. It feels good on the body, wakes you up, and how does it feel to have made yourself a little taller for the day, lol. Okay, it doesn’t make you taller, but we can pretend like it adds an inch!
If anything puts me in a bad mood it’s being rushed right after I wake up. It makes me stressed out, which puts me in a bad mood that is hard to shake. So I wake up an hour before everyone, but I am okay with 15 minutes if I stay up a little late the night before. I need at least an extra 15 minutes to really wake up before its time to start getting read for the day.
Drinking water in the morning helps me start my morning out right!
I love water, and staying hydrated throughout the day is important. Starting the day with a refreshing glass of water help with energy, and makes drinking water easy the entire day. I love water, the first glass might not sound good, but once I get it down that is all I want for the rest of the day. Plus, water makes you feel great, and eat less.
Get up and move in the morning
Go for a walk, workout, or clean the house to get your body moving. It helps make you feel better for the rest of the day, and it’s done and out-of-the-way.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, don’t skip it because you are too busy or we don’t have time to sit down and eat. Now you can toss one of Tyson® Day Starts™ sandwiches in the microwave for two minutes, pour your coffee, and get your things together. By the time you finish you can grab your Tyson® Day Starts™ sandwich and head out the door.
Tyson® Day Starts™ products are a tasty solution for anyone who has to eat breakfast on the go. Plus, there is SEVEN kinds of Tyson® Day Starts™ sandwiches to enjoy.
We tried the Sausages, Egg, and Cheese Biscuits, and Ham, Onions, & Green Peppers Wrapped Omelets sandwiches. I don’t think one of the Tyson® Day Starts™ sandwiches was better than the other. It really just depends on which one I am in the mood for. My husband on the other hand would tell you hands down the sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit was the best!
Tyson® Day Starts™ products are great for busy moms who are on the go, husbands who leave for work without eating breakfast, kids who need to eat before school, or anyone who wants a yummy, convenient breakfast in only two minutes.
