I find that having a routine in the morning is so important, not only physically but also to my mental health – it helps me to feel fresh and ready for the day. I find that when I’m organised in the mornings, it keeps me motivated throughout the day. One of the main ways I enjoy my morning routine is by making sure my phone is not in sight – this was the hardest thing to do as I found it as a bad habit, but now I have broken the habit I love having time away from my phone!
Once i’m up, I make sure to fuel my body by eating breakfast – it’s the most important meal of the day and can definitely make a difference in how your day pans out – I find that once I’ve eaten, it’s helps me to stay focused!
Then I will complete my simple morning skincare routine (let me know if you’d like to see it), and brush my teeth! I have recently started using Lavera Whitening Toothpaste – it is a gentle toothpaste and isn’t too harsh! It helps to protect the enamel and to leave the teeth looking brighter. It has a subtle mint flavour and is lightly foamed – I find one of the best things about this toothpaste is I don’t get the sensitive feeling when I take a drink, which is a definite thumbs up from me!
After brushing my teeth, I like to use a mouthwash but have found it hard to find one that isn’t too strong or burns my sensitive gums! Until I started using The Breath Co. Fresh Breath mouthwash in mild mint. This product honestly does last the majority of the day – so there’s no need to worry about your breath after lunch (unless you’re eating garlic). It also doesn’t leave any nasty after taste and is lovely and refreshing. It’s a little more on the pricey side at £14, but I genuinely think I would buy this product as it really is a nice mouthwash!
Finally, to finish my morning routine. I have one Grethers pastilles in Blueberry – primarily they are for a sore throat but I have found that it helps my throat throughout the day, I don’t feel any hoarseness and it helps to stop my mouth from feeling so dry! These are gluten free and don’t contain *ANY* nasties which is perfect – they also taste great!
