Good afternoon everyone! 🙂
Today I am taking part in a launch tour hosted by Julia for her new blog, Lit Aflame!
We all know how it is. School time rolls around and with it comes early mornings. Awful, miserable, mornings.
Of course you could say that I’m a morning person, but you could also say that I’m a night person too. So I guess I’m both. But just let me say, being a “night” person, makes being a morning person even harder than before.
Because for some reason I need this thing called sleep, what’s up with that?
Anyway, today we’re going to be talking about 4 steps to having a great morning start!
Why Does a Good Morning start even matter?
I have discovered something, something amazing, something life changing, something WORLD stirring! It is the greatest discovery of all time. I have discovered that a good morning start or a bad morning start can aid in deciding what sort of day you will have. And we all (at least the sensible ones of us) want a productive day that is smooth and in the end of which we feel that we actually accomplished something. Or maybe not, maybe you’d rather a day that drags on in a haze at the end of which you feel as if you have accomplished NOTHING and so feel like a complete and utter failure.
Yeah, that’s what I thought.
Get Up As Soon as your Alarm goes Off.
Ah yes, that wonderfully dooming “snooze” button.
I mean, uh, just don’t push it.
Because you really don’t get that much more sleep and only drags the inevitable out until by the time you at last get up you feel terrible and your schedule is thrown off time. So as soon as that dreaded alarm begins to ring it’s death shrill, don’t give yourself time to think about how tired you are. THROW YOURSELF OUT OF BED.
Seriously, don’t get up slowly, JUMP up, getting up quickly helps in waking you up more and getting you going for the day. Plus, you are up on time and everything can go smoothly, no more behind schedule!
Read the Bible/Pray
A good rule indeed it is! What better way to get yourself prepared to face the day than to spend some time in prayer and the Bible? This is a MUST. Seriously, set your alarm early enough for you to have time to do this. Spend. Time. with. God in the morning! Commit to doing this and follow through with it!
Take a Walk
For those of you who are stuck in the city. . . well. . . that is unfortunate. But for the rest of us who live in the country, one thing you should definitely add to your morning schedule is a walk!
Because, I mean, fresh air, some exercise. . . all great stuff.
Just getting out of the house and into the clear air of the outside can clear away that fog that will sometimes linger about you after waking, plus it gives you some quiet time to think before launching into the flurry of the activities of that day.
Eat Some Breakfast!
Don’t skip it, after that nice walk eat something before starting your school or whatever else you have to do.
Me personally? I like to eat an apple. And yes, that can be considered breakfast, you don’t need a whole feast. Just something small and refreshing, (which will preferably hold you over till lunch).
And there you have it! Set yourself up to have a great day by having a great morning!

Celebrate the Launch of my Blog with me!
I am on a quest. Or that is, I was.
That’s right, I was on a quest, though it wasn’t the dragon slaying sort (I prefer to ride them). But it was a very important quest nonetheless!
My poor young self of a few months ago started a free blog, to make sure I wanted to actually do this blogging thing. Turns out, I LOVE blogging, so then the time came to pull out the matches, scoop the Ice-cream, and get serious about blogging!
Why am I bothering you about this? Don’t you have much better things to do than have your precious time wasted by me? Uh, well, yeah, literally anything would probably be more worth your time than reading this — but let’s be honest here, you would much rather waste your time listening to me talk than do anything productive, right? (no? Just me?) ANYWAY the thing is I AM BUILDING AN EMPIRE!
*cough* I mean, I’m launching my “official” blog.
And I have just come back from my quest of gathering a group of wonderful bloggers to help make the launch special (one of which you are reading this at now).
Again, why am I bothering you?
Because celebration! I mean come on! You can’t launch anything without having a party, right? So here at Lit Aflame we are having a week long celebration and if I do say so myself, it’s purty awesome. Because, guys, there’s a giveaway! I LOVE giveaways! Nearly as much as I love Ice cream. The only sad thing is… I can’t enter my own giveaway, the good thing? YOU can!
