It can be a little difficult to get out of bed on fall mornings. The chill in the air and all the cozy fabrics you’ve moved into your room can make it feel like the perfect place to keep resting. But when you need to get up, it shouldn’t feel like a struggle. Here are some great things that can help you start your mornings off right this fall.
Coffee or Tea
The first thing that comes to mind in the morning is your morning beverage. Whether you prefer coffee or tea, that jolt of caffeine is the first thing you’ll need when you get up in the morning. Chances are, you have your favorite beverages and your favorite way of preparing them, but there’s always room to spice things up.
If you usually make your coffee in an instant coffee maker or a coffee pot, try something different. Get a kettle or a French press to liven up your mornings. If you are willing to try new varieties of tea, investigate buying loose-leaf tea and steeping it per the instructions to discover new flavors.
Your Favorite Coffee Mug
One of the best parts of your morning tea or coffee is putting it in your favorite mug. Coffee mugs can be the perfect thing to make you smile and start your day right. Whether you choose to put your tea or coffee in a thermos or a traditional coffee mug, or have a favorite black pride mug, make sure to surround yourself with ones that will make your day brighter.
Even the kitschiest coffee mugs are charming in their way. There are so many places online you can search for unique, funny, or classy mugs. Choose the one that makes you happiest.
Your Favorite Sweater
Some people love to step outside first thing in the morning. Getting some fresh air after being cooped up inside all night can be a great experience and help start your day off better. But you can’t step out on your deck or porch without putting on a sweater.
And that’s where your favorite sweater or coat comes in. If you don’t already have a sweater hanging by the backdoor for these occasions, choose something cozy, easy to put on, and will keep you warm while you step outside. You can even take your coffee out there for a beautiful, calm morning.
House slippers aren’t just for seniors. Some of the best fuzzy, warm house slippers are made with busy people in mind. There’s nothing worse than swinging your legs out of bed and putting your feet on a cold floor, and in fall this becomes a real problem for most of us.
Keep your slip-on house slippers next to the bed. That way, you can slip your feet right into them and avoid the cold floor altogether. Very few of us have the luxury of heated floors, and house slippers are less expensive! Choose slippers with a thicker bottom pad for the best effect.
Delicious Scented Body Wash
Taking a shower in the morning can help refresh your body and get you ready for the day. Showers are amazing like that – they can relax you before bed and wake you up in the morning. While some have sensitive skin and can’t use scented body washes, using a brightly scented wash can help get your morning started right.
Though they probably don’t make coffee-scented body wash (yet), you can find some bright scents to liven up your morning. Choose something citrusy or fruity to get you started right. You’ll be launch straight into productivity once you’re clean and awake.
Warm, Fluffy Towels
Finally, you can’t get started with a shower on a cold morning without some fluffy towels. Consider choosing a towel that is large and soft to help you get going after your shower. You should also consider buying a towel warmer if you like taking showers on cold mornings. It’s an investment, but they can make all the difference!
Fall mornings don’t have to be so difficult. A few well-placed motivations can help you get through to start your day the best possible way. Make sure to surround yourself with things you love, and don’t be afraid to get cozy – it’s fall, after all!
