How To Kickstart Your Day

I genuinely love my bed. It's so nice and warm and cozy and hach.. it's heaven. Sometimes it's really hard to get up but I feel like it's so much more doable when you have reasons to start the day. Here are a few of the things I do which help me to leave my bed.

1. Start your day off with a big glass of water! After sleeping 7 - 9 hours your body is dehydrated and it needs water to function. You can also infuse your water with lemon/orange slices, berries or whatever you have at home to give it some flavour. I always have a glass of water on my bedside table so I don't forget about it.

2. Workout! A few weeks ago I decided to start exercising again. Because of work I don't have time to go to the gym, that's why I went for runs. It was alright but after a while I recognized that running wasn't doing it for me, so I started doing Blogilates and it works perfectly fine for me. I suppose a lot of you already know Cassey Ho and her Youtube channel. I don't wanna lie: it was so damn hard at the beginning, but I went for it and it's so much fun. I can really feel myself improving and getting fitter again. I am following her monthly workout calendar which provides exercises for every part of your body and a great variety. Get ready for a sore body, guys!

3. Enjoy an amazing breakfast! You might have heard it a 96482648 times before: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Why? Easy: as much as you need water, your body as well needs fuel  in terms of food. There are so many ways of enjoying an easy and quick breakfast: avocado on toast, yoghurt with fruits and granola, oatmeal or my favourite BAGELS!
They are such a nice treat on the weekend when you have a bit more time preparing your breakfast. And what would this post be without a "How-To-Make-The-Perfect-Bagel"-recipe?

• one bagel (I always use the cinnamon and raisin bagel which is heaven with savory filling!)
• 1/2 avocado, mashed
• red spicy hummus
• tomato, sliced
• 1 egg
• cheese (I use sliced mozzarella)
• spices and herbs


Cut the bagel open and pop it into your toaster for two to three minutes until it's golden. Meanwhile crack your egg in a heated pan and fry it on medium heat, on both sides.
Put the mashed avocado on the lower part of the bagel, followed by your cheese of choice, slices of tomato and the sunny-side up egg. Finish the bagel of by adding the top part with the hummus.

4. Make a plan! I always feel better when I know what is actually going on during the day. I try to be as productive as I can be, except I planned a lazy day with my BFF, also known as Netflix.
Start off my creating a To-Do list with all the stuff that needs to be done like i.e. laundry, emails you need to write, etc. It is such a satisfying feeling when you can cross tasks out after finishing them.
