5 Tips for a Nourishing Morning + GIVEAWAY

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Airborne®. While I was compensated to write a post about Airborne® Everyday™, all opinions are my own.

You are either a morning person, or you are not. I am wholeheartedly, 100 percent a morning person – yep, I am one of those people.

Perhaps it is because breakfast is my favorite meal of the day; but, regardless, I see my morning as the foundation of how I create a fresh, new day.

Here are five tips to make your morning an inspiring, peaceful and nourishing time of day:

  1. Begin your day with a fresh glass of H20. This is a newer habit of mine and it helps to rid of any grogginess almost immediately. If you’re feeling up to it, add a tablespoon of unpasteurized apple cider vinegar for a slew of health benefits – including revving up your metabolism for the day.
  1. Enjoy a nutritionally satisfying breakfast at the table (preferably sans technology). Set your alarm a few minutes early to have enough time to eat your first meal in a calm, peaceful environment (rather than while rushing out the door). A few of my favorites include 3-Minute Banana Peanut Butter Oatmeal, Creamy Cashewmilk Steel Cut Oatmeal, and Almond Butter Hemp Seed Toast… or a bowl of Power O’s!


  1. Sip a hot beverage. This is also a newer ritual of mine (as you all know I’m an iced coffee fiend). However, I’ve been savoring an aromatic cup of joe these days. If coffee isn’t your thing, a hot mug of herbal tea, or even warm water with fresh squeezed lemon will wake you (and your tummy) up. Tumeric tea with coconut milk is another nourishing option I’m eager to try.


  1. After breakfast (perhaps while sipping said hot beverage), take 5 minutes to write out your intentions/aspirations for the day. This isn’t meant to be a nagging to-do list, but rather your intentions for how you envision your day along with the necessities that need to be accomplished.
  1. Chew a tasty multivitamin like Airborne® Everyday™ – a daily multivitamin plus Airborne’s® crafted immune support.
