How to become an early morning riser mom

It’s no secret that as a mom we wear many hats every day. And it’s no secret that one wish we all have as a Mom is that we had more time in our everyday. But, I am about to share a few things that will revolutionize your morning and set you up for a better day, instead of feeling overwhelmed in your day in motherhood you’ll thrive in your day in motherhood because you'll have more time. Finally. Follow along mama, this is a good one.....

So you’ve heard it all before and that successful people wake up before everybody else. This is no exception. Just imagine you wake up an hour or two before your kids, the house is quiet, you drink hot coffee (is this even a thing anymore)? When was the last time you had coffee (that you didn’t reheat five times throughout the day)? There is no yelling or screaming or fighting or somebody saying Mama, MOOOOOM, or babe (that’s what my husband says to me when he needs me). Instead the house is super quiet and I'm the only one awake and there’s this calm peaceful feeling about the morning. 

When you get up early in the morning you have the ability to spend some time with yourself thinking, listening and feeling all of the things that you want to feel that you won’t feel throughout the rest of your day when your kids and your family are awake. Getting up before everyone in your house every day, will revolutionize your morning and your whole day. So many moms need more time in the day;  to do the things they want to do or frankly just finish your their to do list, or just be present with your kids. Well let me do the math on this for you and what happens exactly when you get up two hours a day earlier than the rest of your family.

Here's the math so you can decide if getting up early is right for you: 

When people say “omg you get up so early” that’s the point...and here’s why: 

Waking up Early Benefits:
*No interruptions. No kids yelling. No texts or phone calls

*Extra 2 hours a day= 14 hrs a week
728 extra hours a year = 30 days per year to get it all done 

*Waking up early is the secret to the most successful people in the world 
* Builds discipline
* Get work done
* Build momentum for the day 
*Mental Mindset Edge over others 

Are you shocked to learn you’ll get 30 extra days per year? That’s a whole month y’all. How does that make you feel about getting up two hours before your family?

Ok, so by now I hope you know the power and getting up two hours before your family in fact I dare you to try it just for two weeks and see how you feel. Here’s an easy way to get up early without totally shocking your body and system here’s my tips on how to implement it into your life starting today

Set your alarm for 15 minutes earlier than you would normally get up tomorrow morning, do this for three days. So for example I normally get up at seven for the next three days I’m gonna wake up at 6:45.

Then on the fourth day I’m going to set my alarm for 6:30, and for the following two days so three in total I’m gonna get up at 6:30.

On the seventh day I’m going to set my alarm for 6:15 and enjoy getting up at 6:15 for the next three days and so on and so forth. 

So you’re slowly working your body and time until you reach your ideal wake up time whatever that is for you and your family. I really recommend two hours before your family wakes up, but some of you might just be wanting to start with an hour day. And using the system I outlined above, is a great way to ease your body into it, feel less intimidating and allow you to implement the benefits of getting up early to your morning routine. 

So now that I’ve broken it down for you, tell me what are you most excited to experience in the quiet morning hours for yourself? For me, it’s mediation. Always meditation. 

Our Chemical Exposure

Our Chemical Exposure
So you’ve heard the chemicals are all around us speech but you haven’t jumped on board yet. You watch commercials about everything we are exposed to in terms of toxins and roll your eyes. And I totally get it. How fricken overwhelming is it knowing that maybe I can’t trust any product on store shelves. And come on really, not everything is bad for us….but how do we determine what is and what isn’t? And better yet, how can we make the decisions for ourselves what we are willing to submit ourselves to and what we aren’t. That my friends is freedom. Willingly knowing something is toxic and doing it anyway or knowing its toxic and deciding to pass on it. Let me give you an example. For me, I love to get my nails done. Do I know its toxic? Yep, but I choose to do it. I want you to have that same choice as it relates to every single product in your home. I want to educate you with what’s in it and what some better alternatives are and then you decide if you’ll make a switch or keep using it. That’s it. Easy peasy.
I hear these all on the daily and here’s the best part. I was that girl. Too busy, to actually research the products I was spending my hard-earned money on. Too naïve to think that large corporations could actually care more about putting a buck in their pocket than the health or my family and I.
Here’s the thing since I’ve been there and heck I’m still there at times. So freaking annoyed I have to read every damn label to make sure what I’m buying isn’t going to cause more harm than good to my families health. 
Did you know if you live in the European Union, 1328 chemicals are banned. That means they can’t be used in personal care or food products. Here in the good old USA, our government has only banned 11. See something wrong with that? Yep, me too! Are you upset about that? Yep, me too! Let’s feel that fire in our bellies and do something about it!
Wonder why Cancer, Auto-immune issues, allergies and hormone imbalances are so much more prevalent today than even 20 years ago? It’s because our chemical exposure everyday. We eat, use or breathe in chemicals from our food or products used within our homes. Check out the Documentary STINK on Netflix, its eye opening. 
I’ve spent the last 3 years of my life learning and educating on all of this and while I don’t think its for everyone (only those that care about their health 💁) I do believe its something we should all be educated on. However, I know many of us are pressed for time these times which is why I have an easy button on all things Natural Living and wellness that you can educate yourself with and or buying products I’ve fully vetted and trust to use on myself and family everyday (this one took me a long time).
