This week we’ve asked Margeaux House, from The Curvy World to talk all about how she starts her day. Let’s get to chatting!
A: It’s coffee for me without a doubt. My day doesn’t get started without one good cup. Lately I have been using a French press and I heat up a bit of almond milk to pour into the cup. No sugar for me. The almond milk gives the sweetness and extra flavor.
A: While my coffee is brewing I open the blinds in my living room and talk to my plants. I check them with my water meter and anyone who needs a drink gets one.
A: I make my coffee, check on my plants, and then I have my coffee while I check a few emails. I love to start my day with movement so if I am not taking a bike ride through the park then it’s a morning yoga or pilates session. The day can get away from you so easily, so if I don’t make time for myself first thing in the morning it might not happen that day, which is why I always do me first.
A: I can usually recover by making sure I put movement at the end of my day maybe right before I go to bed. I do tend to get a great nights sleep after a wind down yoga session.
A: Try waking up just a few minutes earlier and carve out that time for yourself. Whatever it is that brings you joy make space for it early in your day. Even if it is 15 minutes to start. You will quickly see how you may start to get up even earlier to allow more time for yourself as your ritual develops.
Thank you for your inspiration and insight. Let’s chat again soon.
Great tips in this post. I also love a French Press cup of coffee, by the way…and need to work more on starting my day with movement. Thanks for the inspiration!
Fun interview! The start to the day sets the whole mood for the day for me!
Sounds like a wonderful way to start your day!
Such an insightful interview. I have a similar morning routine and this makes me want to recommit to it.
Great idea to put your self-care first to start your day, but still, make it happen at the end of the day if needed.
