Inspiration from the September Flower: Morning Glory

september flower

Morning glories are the September flower, and their delicate blue and purple petals are loved by many. They get their name because they will unravel into full bloom in the early morning and will generally curl back up for the rest of the day. Morning glories can easily be grown in your own backyard, but if you do not have a green thumb, here are some other ways you can add the spirit of morning glory into your home this September.

Be Prepared

Mornings can be a stressful time for most people. From getting ready to go to work to making sure the rest of the day goes smoothly, those few hours in the mornings are crucial.

One of the easiest ways to make sure your mornings start out right is to be prepared the night before. Decide what you are going to wear the next day, and get any meal preparations done then. Set your keys out where you know you can find them immediately, and get all everything so you are ready to go right when you wake up!

Celebrate Better Breakfast Month this September

September is “National Better Breakfast Month”, and though focusing on eating a healthy breakfast should always be a priority, perhaps this month can be a little reminder to make better breakfasts for yourself.

Eating breakfast every day is important for several reasons. Even if you may not feel hungry in the morning, breakfast is what gives you the energy you need for the rest of the day. Breakfast kick starts the body’s metabolism for the day, and it helps set your body to burn more calories throughout the day. People who tend to skip breakfast will often overcompensate by eating more during the day.

Below are some helpful tips in planning out your breakfasts to make sure you are always eating healthy and getting the energy you need to go about your day.

Warm Water with Lemon and Honey 

Starting off your breakfast routine with a cup of warm water with lemon and honey can be exactly what your body needs to recharge. There are countless benefits from doing this including helping the digestive system, improving the colon, cleansing the urinary tract, and helping with clearing the skin.

Try storing your honey in this Blomus Desa Honey Jar for optimal freshness. The jar is designed to allow for a convenient honey pour with a silicone spoon attached to the lid.

Tea Versus Coffee 

Even though most people will find coffee to be the only thing to truly wake them up, try substituting tea for coffee. You not only still get your caffeine, it is also much healthier. Most teas will have a higher level of antioxidants than coffee, meaning drinking it will help your body prevent heart problems, cancer, diabetes, and other issues. If you are not a huge tea drinker, try using this exquisite Mirza Teapot to get your day going. This handcrafted porcelain kettle acts as a tea leaf infuser for whatever tea you decide you want to have. The elegant display acts as the perfect table decorator as well.

Ole Jensen Juicer

Stock Up on Fruits

Having a glass of juice for breakfast is the easiest way to get all the healthy nutrients you need from crucial fruits. Try this Juicer Jug for an easy way to act both as the citrus reamer and the jug to pour it from. It is specifically designed so that when you pour it, the spout will not allow any seeds to come out.

Even just changing up a few things in your routine can help improve your health drastically, and you should be more energized and ready to go for the day!
