Are you running around like a headless chicken every morning, gulping down your coffee with no time to even breathe? If this is you, girl, you need to get yourself a morning routine!

If you start your day off in a manic environment, your mindset will most likely feel the same throughout, and that’s no fun for anyone, especially you.

Try to create the perfect morning and night routine. Whether you set your alarm that little bit earlier, have a shower the night before or take some time for a little meditation, start to create small changes which can help you achieve a more slower and peaceful morning.


Your body is your home and it’s the only one you have, so treating it right is important. From your sleeping pattern to your eating habits, everything you do has an effect on your mind, body and health. Sure, you don’t have to become health-obsessed, but just being aware of how you’re feeling and making sure that you’re taking good care of yourself is a step in the right direction. For example, I’ve eaten 8 Mr Kipling cakes within the space of 10 minutes… I need to sort that out!

Sleep and eat well, stay hydrated, stretch your body, meditate and most importantly, breathe. Making changes like these has magical benefits!


Having a dream is great, but why just let it be simply that, a dream? Go and make it a reality! It’s so easy for us to sit there with our heads in our hands, staring into space, daydreaming about all the things we wish we could do, be or have when really, we should be actively pursuing.

Putting pen to paper and writing down your goals is effective. In a sense, it makes them more real and achievable. Go and grab yourself a notepad, start writing down all your desires, begin the journey and put everything into motion.


Travel is such an incredible opportunity in itself and it’s something which can nourish our minds, bodies and souls. Travel gives us the chance to explore, meet new people and discover, not only new places but things about ourselves. So many experiences are out there waiting to be experienced, and stepping out of what you know and seeing different parts of the globe is one of the most enriching adventures.

Don’t let your passport gather dust, use it!


Sadly, self-love is something which takes a back seat far too often and should be a priority for us all. We live by times, dates and schedules, with places to go and people to see. Understandably, it’s easy to get caught up in the routine of life, forgetting to stop and focus on our inner selves.

Taking the time to check in with how you’re feeling is so important. Whether you have a spa day, movie night or take a walk by yourself, making the effort to spend time with you and you alone is vital. Make it your mission to take a moment to focus on your energy, and give yourself some well-deserved TLC. Make these positive changes for YOU and enjoy immersing yourself in pure love!

Whether you decide to follow one of these steps or all 5, live to be the best version of you there can be and enjoy making positive changes!
