Five Tips to Motivate Yourself for Morning Workouts

Five Tips to Motivate Yourself for Morning Workouts

Getting into the habit of working out is one of the biggest struggles people face with starting a fitness routine. Usually our days are already so packed that it can be really hard to fit in the extra time. Personally, getting in both a morning and an evening workout works best with my schedule. I can keep them shorter (20-40 minutes each session) and they seem less intimidating when split up.

Starting your day with a workout can really help to set the tone for the rest of your day. Not only will it give you more energy but it kickstarts your metabolism. If you can only workout once, make it a morning workout. The benefits are worth it. Finding the motivation can be difficult, especially before it becomes a habit. Or on cold days, days you feel sluggish, or the morning after a late night. These are my five favorite ways to get motivated for my morning workouts.

Kaeng Raeng Cleansing Clay Review

Kaeng Raeng Cleansing Clay Review

Charcoal masks are one of the few masks I had never tried until recently. To be honest, any that I have tried have not lived up to their claims at all. When Kaeng Raeng sent me their Cleansing Clay for review, I was a bit skeptical due to my history with similar face masks. The brand has a great reputation and I was interested to see how their cleansing clay compared to activated charcoal and clay masks I have used in the past.

This mask takes about 10 minutes to use. You apply it to clean, dry skin and let it dry fully before washing it off. As with most masks, it is suggested that you moisturize after use.

Caru Skincare Co Rose Facial Serum Review

Caru Skincare Co Rose Facial Serum Review

The Caru Skincare co Rose Facial Serum was included in the Petit Vour November Beauty Box. It was new to me at the time and, being someone who loves both serums and rose skin care, I could not wait to try it. This serum contains rose, geranium, carrot seed, evening primrose, pomegranate, and rosehip oils. It promises to liven up a dull complexion, leave your skin smooth, and decrease visibility of fine lines.

After using up my sample, I ordered the full size product. I wanted to see if the long-term results of using this serum were as great as the week I used the sample size.

New Jewelry Line to Love – Lovely Rustic

New Jewelry Line to Love - Lovely Rustic

There is just something so amazing about a handmade, perfectly natural, organic, and gorgeous piece of stone jewelry. It looks so cute and feels so powerful. I have been wearing crystal jewelry from Lovely Rustic for some time now and I always get so many compliments and so many questions. Lovely Rustic and I have teamed up to bring you this post so that you can learn more about the jewelry company, check out the line, and even score an amazing discount!

Lovely Rustic is an Etsy jewelry store run out of Portland, Oregon by Stephanie. Stephanie makes earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets. All of them are so unique and so pretty!

I asked her about what inspired her to start Lovely Rustic.

I knew I wanted to open an Etsy shop and use my desire to express myself creatively as an avenue to start a line of handmade goods that people would love and relate to. It took a few tries before I decided that handmade jewelry was my biggest passion, inspiration,and area of expertise. I am truly dedicated to creating a successful and honest business (I am very particular about verifying the authenticity of the stones I use) based on my passion and I plan on sticking around! It has been an arduous journey, but every happy costumer makes all the work and effort totally worth it.

How’s this for a funny story – we actually went to high school together and lived across the street from each other for a couple of years. After we reconnected on Facebook I saw her posting links to her jewelry and was totally blown away. Everything was so pretty and so unique!! After my first order, I was totally hooked on the line and have ordered other items since.
