Everyday victories are pretty priceless in my book. As a mom I want to feel my best every morning and refuse to be that frazzled mom still in her pajamas hiding behind over-sized sunglasses in the morning drop off lane. I have been “that mom” one to many times, they are so inopportune and embarrassing. In collaboration with El Monterey Signature breakfast burritos and the #MomWins campaign, I am sharing five morning hacks to help you feel your best every morning.
Five Morning Hacks and El Monterey Signature breakfast burritos
Take the time when you are most awake at night to plan for the next day. Have outfits laid out the night before, backpacks packed; ready to grab and go, lunchboxes pre-made… Take planning a step further and have an entire week of outfits ready for small children.
Set an alarm for the alarm
Set a first alarm fifteen minutes before you need to wake up. This will interrupt your sleep pattern and act as a warning snooze.
Skip the five minutes you used to spend catching up on facebook in bed. Keep your phone and other distractions off while you complete your morning routine.
Get your Blood flowing
To energize and invigorate your mood have a playlist of music ready. Grab a cup of coffee to sip on in-between a morning stretch. Spend 10-20 minutes each morning stretching in a light exercise fashion. Work on a couple of yoga poses to help wake you and get your blood moving.
The Full Belly
