I once watched a video entitled, "If you want to change your life, make your bed." It was an inspiring speech about all of the things people need to do in order to live, happy, healthy productive lives. I've always been one to make my bed in the morning, as it helps to prevent me from getting back into bed and getting up and moving! As I am making changes in my life to become a happier, healthier person, I thought I would share with you today a few of the things I've begun doing that are really helping me to live my best life possible! These 3 Ways to Start Your Day Off Right are vital to me being productive each day, which leads to a more productive, satisfying life overall.
3 Ways to Start Your Day Off Right
Make Your Bed Before You Do ANYTHING Else
I know that we all have our morning routines. We get up, use the bathroom, make our coffee, check our messages, etc. The first thing I do when I wake up is make my bed. Arranging the throw pillows and all! Not only does it help prevent me from indulging my lazy side and crawling back into bed, but it just makes my bedroom look nicer, and it's one less thing I have to worry about for the rest of the day!
Of course, sometimes a little fur baby crawls into bed with me and I have to just leave it alone for a while...but once they're up and moving around, I make the bed up after them!
Take Your Vitamins and Supplements
I am a firm believer in taking a daily multivitamin, as well as other supplements. For instance, I take a daily vitamin, as well as supplements for my hair, skin and nails, B12, etc. There's quite a few that I take daily, and I actually feel the difference in my energy level when I miss a day.
I once forgot my supplements as I left for a three week long trip to Europe, and my nails all broke and my hair became incredibly dry by the end of the trip. Vitamins and supplements work! I take them with my morning iced coffee or a glass of cold water.
Eat a Filling Breakfast
I was NEVER a breakfast person, I mean I NEVER ATE breakfast. During a recent work trip, a morning breakfast was on our itinerary and I was literally forced to attend because it was scheduled. I actually found that I had more energy throughout the day, and I wasn't snacking as much during that trip! I've always known that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but I never really believed it to be true for myself. What better way to get a filling breakfast than with the tried and true staple, cereal? There are so many varieties, and I am absolutely loving the new varieties being introduced by Cheerios lately - like the new Cheerios Oat Crunch at Walmart!
Cheerios Oat Crunch is made with the Multi Grain Cheerios that we all know and love, then topped with whole grain oats and real cinnamon. Cheerios Oat Crunch delivers that early morning substance that we all need, with each bite more delicious than the last!
You can actually SEE the whole oats added to the O’s that have been added for more texture and a great crunch. It was created for people like me, who are looking for a filling breakfast and a unique texture and delicious taste!
What makes Cheerios Oat Crunch so great?
The use of delicious ingredients rolled into One Multi Grain Cheerios, topped with whole grain oats, and real cinnamon. It's nutritious, hearty, and tastes great! They don't use artificial flavors, there are no colors from artificial sources, it contains 9 vitamins and minerals, is a good source of fiber, and only contains 4.5 grams of total fat per serving. Cheerios Oat Crunch actually has more than ½ of the daily recommended whole grain serving (48 grams are the recommended daily amount).
I hope that these 3 Ways to Start Your Day Off Right are as helpful to you as they are for me! You can pick up Cheerios Oat Crunch at your local Walmart store, or even buy them online at Walmart.com!
