For me, getting out of bed is a chore.  I can hit my snooze button again and again before I force myself to actually start my day.  If you’re a morning person, you might find it easy to hop out of bed, but for those who aren’t morning people, you could use a few tips on how to make getting out of bed an easy part of your day!

  1. Turn the temperature up in your room.Chelsea Crockett - Staying in Bed  I know for me, it’s so much harder to get out from under my warm blankets when my room is freezing cold.  Turn up the thermostat to make it easier on your body.
  2. Prepare a good breakfast to look forward to.  I’m much more willing to get out of bed when I know I have a delicious meal ahead.  I love food, so this acts as a little reward or motivator!
  3. Switch up your morning routine.  It’s hard getting out of bed when you know you have the same boring routine to go through.  Switch it up a little!  Maybe change breakfast meals or workout in the morning instead of after school.
  4. Go to sleep earlier.  This may seem like common sense, but getting a good amount of sleep will make you feel more alive in the morning!
  5. Open up your blinds or curtains.  This might seem like the last thing you want to do, but if your room is pitch-black, you’ll never want to get out of bed!

I hope this makes your mornings a little less dreadful!

Top 3 Morning Devotionals!

There’s nothing I love more than starting my day off with a devotion. If you’re unfamiliar with what this is, it’s usually a short message/lesson on different topics to start or end your day with God’s Word. My devotional books give me a little encouragement and advice on how to get through the day being the best person I can be. I thought I’d share my three favorite books with you, so you can bring some light into your day, too!

  • My all-time favorite morning devotional is Jesus Calling. Each day there is a little passage that ends with a Bible verse to go along with it.Chelsea Crockett - Jesus Calling It definitely starts my day off right with a little advice on how to get through school, practice, or anything else I have scheduled. You can order it online here: http://tiny.cc/JesusCallingDevotional.
  • Trusting God Day by Day by Joyce Meyer is another awesome daily devotional. Again, this book has a passage each day but ends with a simple challenge about trust. The challenges are as simple as praying to God about a certain topic or choosing to let go of negativity for the day. Each day is different! Why not challenge yourself to stay on track?
  • Another daily devotional by Joyce Meyer that is aimed towards women is called The Confident Woman Devotional. Each page opens with a Bible verse followed by a encouraging and guiding passage. What’s cool about this book is that it ends with a prayer. That way you’re always starting your day in God’s Word and talking with Him.

What’s your favorite devotional book to read? Share with me below and I might check it out myself!

Stop Hating The Mornings!

Do you moan and groan every time that 7a.m. alarm clock goes off for school?  I sure do!  If you’re like me, then you love to sleep in and cherish a dark, quiet room.  I’ve started to try to hate my mornings a little less.  Doing so actually makes your day easier!  Now this may sound impossible to you, but I promise it’s doable!  Follow these simple tips and you’ll be on your way to an easier morning!

            Natural light is one of the best alarm clocks there is!  Instead of sleeping with your blinds closed or a dark curtain, sleep with them open or opt for a sheer curtain.  The natural light, which will start to appear before your alarm goes off, will make it easier to wake up.  Since it’s harder to sleep in a bright room, your body will start to wake itself up on its own.  Another great way to wake up easier is to use citrus lotion or body gel.  Studies have shown that the smell of citrus in theChelsea Crockett- citrus body wash morning actually triggers the brain to wake up faster.  For your next morning shower, try an orange scented body wash!

            Delete that boring default alarm ring from your phone and apply one of your favorite songs to get your day going.  I mean, who doesn’t love waking up to the sound of Beyoncé’s voice? Last, have a positive attitude!  When you first wake up think of all the good things you have to look forward to that day.  Don’t stress about that honors history test.  Look past that and think positive!  Start your mornings off right…be happy!

Love,

            Chelsea
