3 small changes I made to my morning routine to have a more productive day.
P O D C A S T S
I am 100% a podcast convert now. I used to whack on the same Spotify playlist every morning on the train, as I thought that some upbeat music may be the way to try and motivate and distract myself from the stresses of London.
But oh man, I've found podcasts to be so, so much better. I have a post coming up that features my fave ones so far, so I won't go into detail about those for now, but honestly, a good podcast has the ability to motivate you ~so~ much.
I love listening to podcasters discussing important, and not-so-important topics on my way to work. It really gets my brain in gear as I'm thinking about my own opinions on these topics as I listen.
There's also nothing better than listening to some fab career women to get you all set up for a day at work!
I mentioned in this post that I really needed to start drinking more water, and it's something that I've incorporated into my morning routine, too. Now that I'm on the bus - and y'know, actually have space to move - I carry a big water bottle with me and make sure I drink it all by the time I've got to work, to start the day off in the right way!
Obviously, there are so, so many benefits to drinking water first thing in the morning, but the ones I've noticed the most have been the difference in my energy levels and my general mood, as well the difference in my skin!
Hopefully, I can really keep this one up.
