The Christy Effect...


Christy Turlington recently achieved her 15th British Vogue cover, 28 years years after her first. She was also the face for Calvin Klein for 20 years. She was one of the original supermodels of the 1990s. She has appeared on over 500 magazine covers, and she is still a total babe.
Love her.

How To Become A Morning Person...

  
  
  

~ How I Became A Morning Person ~
In my Uni days, I used to wake up at the last minute, pick my clothes off the floor, and grab an apple as I rushed out the door. It was total madness. So here are some little things that I do to help me become a morning person.
  • GET PSYCHED. For me, it's all about feeling good and confident about the day. If I'm dragging my feet and feeling stressed about the day's work, I tend to get behind on deadlines (which I hate) and can't seem to catch up. So I try to grab my confidence by the collar, plan how/what is happening throughout the day and remain optimistic no matter what.
  • BE PREPARED. I've learnt that the best way to be a morning person is preparation. So the night before, I get my outfit and lunch ready, and I do all those little 'jobs' that can easily be pushed aside.
  • GET INTO THE HABIT. Scientifically speaking, it takes 21 days to develop a habit. This is how I start anything new that has challenged me, and it I find that this system really works for me. At the moment, I'm working on a 21-Day Gratitude Journal at the moment and I am loving it.
  • WAKE UP MINDFULLY. Some mornings I naturally have that bounce, but other times I need to do that 'self talk' where I breathe in goodness, think beautiful thoughts, live in the moment and feel confident about the day.
  • EXERCISE. When I can I love going to a pilates class in the morning. Exercising in the morning makes me feel great all day, and gives me lots of energy. This is obviously a no-brainer.
  • DRINK A HUGE GLASS OF WATER. I always drink a couple of glasses of water at night before bed. It's great for cleansing the skin and body.
  • GET THE MUSIC PUMPIN'. I crank up the music in the car as I drive to work. Listening to my fave song just makes me so good about the day.
  • HAVE A HEALTHY BREAKFAST. I really prefer a super-healthy breakfast that maintains my energy levels, rather than eating sweet things throughout the day.
  • GET ENOUGH SLEEP. I am always banging on about getting enough sleep. It keeps my skin clear and my eyes bright. This girl loves her sleep!
