TGIF y’all! And Happy April Fool’s Day! 😀 Did you do any pranking? Or were you the one pranked?
Listen, I have a question for you and I want your answers in the comments section. K?
But first, the introduction:
If previous posts are enough indication you all probably know by now early mornings are my absolute favorite part of the day. We (you and I) have exchanged our early-morning routines in this post and learned a bit about each other – always such a treat 😀
We’ll I’ve recently upped the ante in that department so to speak. I’m now using my feel-good song as my alarm. I used to use this zen-y, slow-rise melody which honestly was a very good choice but, every once in a while you just have to shake things up, no?
So that got me curious about what other people’s feel-good songs are and of course I have to ask the question on my blog 🙂
I shall start the ball rolling with my own happy-ness anthem which izzzz:
Now look me in the eye and tell me if that’s not a great song to begin the day with XD Dancing absolutely recommended 😀
Okay so it’s now YOUR turn – what’s your feel-good song at the moment? You don’t have to be like me and use it as your morning alarm, just that it makes you smile or places you in a happy/inspired/motivated/peaceful space.
You can give me just one or an entire list. Run with it! I shall be waiting for your answers 🙂 Seriously, I will.
Some time over the past several days I reached 1K followers – a very significant and exciting milestone in my blogging life 🙂 Needless to say, I feel so happy and exhilarated and lifted up and so encouraged 🙂 🙂 🙂
When I started out all I wanted was reach 200+ and now … well … pheeewww!!! 🙂 I feel like I’m on top of the world! 😀
❤ THANK YOU SO MUCH to all you sexiest followers on wordpress! ❤
Hello sexy sun drops! TGIF aaaannnd, it’s time to put ourselves in a “feel-good” mood once again 🙂
Originally, the title of this blog post would have been “3 things I do each morning to start the day on a positive note”. But I’m interested to hear about how YOU do it because I’m sure we can get a few wonderful tips from each other if not, get to know each other a bit more 🙂
I bet most of you have set up your mornings to give you the best headstart. But if not, consider this a good time to think about it.
So let me start with my own 3 –
Open balcony doors to let good chi in.
Our second floor living area is blessed with opposite doors that lead out unto balconies (see blog header for one of those). And the first thing I do every morning is to open both so I can let in the fresh Indonesian early-morning breeze.
Enjoy the moment for a few minutes.
I then step out unto the main balcony for a languid full-body stretch while deep-breathing in the fresh, cool air. I stay here for a while to take in the rustle of the leaves, the lush green of the trees and lawns, the birds, the beautiful blue sky and the quiet neighborhood.
Brew coffee to fill house with divine aroma.
Then I go down to brew a magic elixir. I get a kick out of thinking the rich aroma of brewed coffee is what the husband smells upon peeking his head out the bedroom door 🙂 It’s such a perk-me-up in its own right don’t you (fellow coffee lovers) think? 🙂
And those are my first 3 – it gets a bit hectic after that 🙂 But these moments are mine alone and they are a welcome prelude to the rest of the day.
Now it’s YOUR turn –
What are some of the things YOU do each morning to start your day right? Fire up my comments section with your welcome chatter 😀
I believe the best gift you can give to your loved ones is to be a happy person.
I am of mixed nationality. I am also 1/4th enigma & 1/4th dragon according to husband & daughter.
I cannot sing. But for Karaoke nights I have prepared this and am ready to sing it with gusto.
Have you noticed that the sentences are getting longer?
My tolerance for spicy food has significantly increased while in Indonesia.
I have hooded eyes and want to learn how to make them up so that they pop!
Do a quick body roll if you’re still reading this. Yes, I like to mess with you like that XD
I love to exercise at home using YouTube videos. My favorites are from him and them.
I believe the world would be a much better place if more people got enough quality sleep at night.
