WATCH: Healthy Morning Routine

Hey everyone!

So this video is my healthy Autumn morning routine! With the colder weather and fewer daylight hours I like to make a few changes to my skincare, diet and exercise routine. Before I got into a routine I would really struggle with early mornings and when I had to wake up early for a meeting I would feel sluggish.
One day I decided to set myself a challenge for one week to go to bed at the same time (11pm) and wake up every morning at 6am The first few days were tricky, but with a no-phone in bedroom policy and laptop off at 10pm – I managed to do it! After a successful first week I decided to try another week and thats when I felt my body clock changed, I even found myself waking up before my alarm!
I must admit when it comes to Autumn/Winter it can be that little bit harder to wake up early, especially when it can be cold and dark when you wake. To combat this, I play a few mental tricks so I don’t sleep in:

1. I will have booked my workout class the night before and that means if I snooze I lose ££££!
2. I prepare my workout kit the night before – no excuses!
3. Breakfast will be a tempting smoothie, Acai bowl or chia seed pudding (see recipe below)
4. I grab a fun but strict workout buddy – someone who might never pick up my calls again if I don’t show up :p

My morning mantra is:

Wake up with determination, go to bed with satisfaction!

    Hello Emma! I absolutely loved the new morning routine video.
    You know I’m going to try the chia seed pudding recipe. I’ve also reconsidered my opinion on coconut milk and will give it a try as well. Hope your weekend is going well. Love you!

    • Emma Miller

      Hey there! Ooh I’m excited you’re going to try it out! Yes coconut milk is good but I would buy the fresh stuff from Alpro rather than any tinned coconut milk. Make sure to snap me any pics or you can upload here :))

      Looking forward to seeing your creation! Again thanks so much for watching and commenting – it means a lot! Xoxo

    Hello my little ray of sunshine! LOVED your morning routine vid, and I like the hacks for getting out of bed in the morning. I’m with you on getting the gym kit out the night before. It was the only way I could get up and go for a run early morning! I’m going to try some of your recipes, although breakfast for me is the meal I always struggle with. Out of interest is there a reason you chose to go the sun warrior route for protein? I’m reading Bear Grylls fuel for life at the moment and he’s quite pro vegan – it’s an interesting read. You always make me smile with your snaps, and you always look phenomenal! Looking forward to the next one 🙂 Love ya, xx

    • Emma Miller

      Hey Mark! :)) Always love reading your comments on here! Impressed with your early morning runs! How do you feel you struggle with brekkie?
      Yes try some of my recipes! I choose Sun Warrior because its quite natural and not full of preservatives like other protein shakes. I haven’t read that book but going to check it out online now – I used to be vegan and its definitely a healthier way of life!
      So happy you’ve been enjoying my snaps – sending love! xx
