Motivational Mondays #2

I am working as hard as I can to launch my blog under the domain rather than this one. That’s right, I’m going to self-host my blog.

Mornings can be a rushed, tiring ordeal during the week. Time can fly by and you can easily be late for work or school. However, these easy tips will help you better manage your mornings, so that you have a good, motivating start to the day:

  • Eat a large breakfast – I know you’ve probably heard this before but eat a large breakfast. It will give you more energy for the rest of the day.


  • Drink lots of water – Cold water wakes you up faster than coffee.


  • Sleep with the blinds half open – This way the natural light will start to wake you up, and you feel less sleepy when the alarm goes off.


  • Stay away from that sleep button – Don’t press sleep on your alarm, the extra five minutes won’t make you less tired, just late. Try and get out of bed and downstairs as quickly as possible, to avoid the temptation of staying in bed. This can be achieved by putting your alarm clock on the other side of the room, so you have to get up.


  • Stretch – By stretching your body, you wake yourself up even further, and also make yourself feel like you’re ready for the day. It only takes 2 minutes.


  • Wake up earlier – If you are often running late in the mornings, try waking up earlier. You will find the mornings much more relaxing if you wake up 15 minutes earlier. If you find this makes you tired, then go to bed earlier.


  • Read an inspirational quote – Get the right mindset for the day by reading an inspirational quote in the mornings. I post daily quotes on my Instagram –





Motivational Mondays #1

It’s time for the first post of Motivational Mondays! Motivational Mondays and Fitness Fridays posts are a bit shorter than the Euphoria posts on Wednesday and Sunday. I haven’t completely decided what I’m going to do every Monday, but today sit back and enjoy my three reasons to stay motivated:


1. Confidence: The more you follow your dreams and accomplish goals such as running a marathon, the more confidence you’ll gain.


2. Family: Have you ever wanted to make your family proud? By following your dreams and sticking to goals you’ve set for yourself, you will become a role-model to your family.


3. HappinessNothing makes you more euphoric (long-term) than achieving your goals, especially when you know they pushed you to the limit. So, if it ever gets tough in the first few weeks of a new resolution or goal; just push on, it will be worth it in the end.


At the end, I would just like to add a video that is inspirational and will motivate us all, so here is this week’s choice:

I don't own this video, but it is very inspiring, and it basically sums up what 
my blog is all about.
