Start your day on the right foot with these handy tips
When your life is constantly in the fast lane, mornings can feel like a bit of a blur. A swish of mascara in between sips of strong coffee and bites of a banana is not an ideal way to start your day, but a half hour yoga sequence and blissfully long shower is completely out of reach. Instead, give these simple steps a try and watch your morning routine transform your outlook on the day ahead.
