Hey friends! I hope you’re having the best summer! I know I’m not alone when I start to feel “over” summer and ready for a routine and cooler weather. We’re so busy and random these days that I sometimes forget to start my day right. To me starting my day right means starting it with intention. There are lots of things I do, not all of them every day, but here are some ideas.
Wellness Wednesday | How To Start Each Day With Intention
Stretch and Meditate
I love stretching and it always makes me feel 1000x better but I often forget to do it! While stretching I like to meditate or direct my focus on the things I am grateful for.
Establish positivity before your to-do list starts adding up in your head by counting a cycle of deep and slow breathes for 3-5 min or more if you can.
Gut health is super important guys, so much so that I’m going to do a whole updated post on it. I’ve chatted about it here. I am still taking Hyperbiotics, I’ll link them below. I also take magnesium, B12, and a few others. Listen to your body and figure out what it needs. You can also lookup personalized vitamin companies, I haven’t tried any but they look super convenient.
I have a morning oil lineup and I do it every single day. It does change from time to time, right now it includes Progessence Plus, Gratitude, Valor, White Angelica, and my immune-boosting roller. I also use my morning serum with Frankincense, Lavender, Copaiba, and Palmarosa. If you want to start using oils and change your life let me know!

Read + Pray
Read whatever it is that brings you joy and inspires you, for me, it’s the bible. I also spend time every morning praying for the day. I get a lot of ideas for living with intention in a book I’ll link below called How to Live with Intention.
Coffee + Good Breakfast
Try to incorporate as many colors as you can with plants and fruits/veggies.
You don’t have to do a CrossFit workout but do something that you like, maybe it’s going for a walk, but aim for 30 min of movement.
What do you do to start your day? I hope you found some helpful tips and things to incorporate into your morning routines. You can shop anything I talked about below.
