This morning, after a slightly hectic Week 1 of winter term, I got to spend a full hour eating a buttered chocolate croissant, drinking earl grey tea, and getting to surf the web on my MacBook to get my daily news. It was truly a morning I was in dire need of. We all deserve to have some bliss and restfulness in our morning, and let’s be real, none of us get that usually.

Because we all do deserve a relaxing morning, I have come up with a list of ways to have a blissful morning, without stressing!

Have a Blissful Morning, Every Morning

1. Have a real breakfast

Take some time out of your day to actually eat breakfast. Actually cook something (an egg scramble is always a favourite) or get something from the local bakery you can warm up and slather in butter.

Having a decent breakfast is the best way to have a great morning.Read More
