Monday mornings can be really daunting. The thought of having to start a new week and all the things that come with it can be overwhelming. Here are 5 ways to have a great Monday morning:
Tip #1 - Get to bed early
To wake up refreshed count back 7 -10 hours from when you need to get up in order to determine when you should go to sleep.
Tip #2 - Take 5 slow deep breaths upon waking
This helps calm your nervous system, relaxes you and kicks off your day in a good head space.

Tip #3 - Hydrate!
I don't know about you but I often wake up feeling super thirsty. Have a big glass of water early in the morning so that you hit the ground running and feel fresh and hydrated all day long!
Tip #4 - Wake your body up
Move for 5-10 minutes, do some yoga, take a brisk walk or just do some stretches to wake up your body, increase blood flow and ease any stiffness from sleeping.
Tip #5 - Power up with protein
Avoid the croissants if you want to feel energised and avoid a mid morning crash. Have a protein rich breakfast - eggs, yoghurt, berries and seeds or have a protein rich smoothie if you're on the go!
