Start off the new season, and each day, the right way with our favourite ways to savour Spring mornings.
In the deepest, darkest days of Winter, we would do anything for an extra hour of light. Come Spring, however, now the clocks have gone forward, our morning routine often remains unchanged – despite it being the perfect time to refresh your regime. Start off your day the right way (and make the most of that extra vitamin D) with our favourite ways to savour Spring mornings.
- Appreciate natural light
Waking up to light (and if you’re lucky, sunshine) streaming through the windows is one of Spring’s greatest pleasures. If you’re usually reliant on blackout blinds, don’t roll them down all the way – leaving even a small gap at the bottom will allow the morning light to pour through, waking you up far more naturally than a shrieking alarm ever could.
Often the brightest room in the house, moving your morning routine to the bathroom will also help to wake you up naturally. Our bestselling Bathroom Caddy will keep your space clutter-free.
2. Have something to look forward to
It may sound simple, but having something enjoyable to wake up to will make getting up infinitely easier. Seek pleasure in the small things: a sleepy cuddle with your little one; a delicious, nourishing breakfast; a considered skincare routine. Try getting up slightly earlier, too – you won’t miss 10 minutes of extra sleep, but you’ll reap the benefits of a thorough skincare regime.
3. Embrace morning rituals
Make your mornings as valuable as your evenings by establishing pleasurable rituals – and sticking to them. Drinking a glass of water as soon as you wake up will kick-start digestion; try adding fresh mint to a carafe and keep it by your bed for ease. Burning a citrusy candle –like our Verveine and Orange Grove fragrances – boosts serotonin levels in the body, making you feel more awake and energised.
Lastly, give your mind time to reflect by writing down three goals for the day ahead – our Plans & Thoughts duo are the perfect choice of notebooks. Our top tip for fitting in new rituals? It’s been said a thousand times, but laying your clothes out or prepping breakfast the night before is key to establishing a good morning routine – leaving you more time to enjoy the things that matter.
