Just like they say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, waking up and getting started is the most important part of your day. It is so easy to get stuck in a dull, uninspiring cycle of dragging yourself out of bed, forcing coffee down your throat, while wishing you never left bed. But I’m going to show you how I’m reinventing mornings to inspire you to make every day a great day! Here’s how to invigorate your morning:

Can you tell how much more awesome this picture looks when you light some creativity and inspiration into it?

Here’s how I’m starting my day with inspiration and creativity:
After I get up, I jump in the shower and put on a nice outfit. I like to take 10 minutes to cozy up on the couch while I wait for breakfast to cook or my tea to steep. I light my Glade® Blue Odyssey Large Candle, which is infused with delicious watery, citrus scents, and grab my notebook to start going over my day. Making lists or planning what I need to do is a great way to keep control of the day and always gives me a great outlook on what I can accomplish! And no matter how stressed I may feel about the day ahead, the Blue Odyssey scent is a good aroma therapeutic trick to stay positive and keep the stress down.

Picking a good scent to start my morning is essential-it’s what inspires me, especially as a very creative person by nature, to create and gets me in a good mood for the coming day. Since it’s summertime I’ve been inspired by a lot of nautical scents and the combination of water and citrus in this candle gives me a fresh scent and a fresh outlook on my day!

Once my breakfast is done I like to sit with a refreshing cup of tea and start my work. I often work on the blog before going to my day job and it’s a great way to get my creative juices flowing in the morning. I feel invigorated to be working for myself and I love to start out my day with some sketches or going over notes on current projects. Some of my favorite tea flavors at the moment are Raspberry Earl and Egyptian Mint, which also have a little caffeine to give you that extra boost!


It’s important to remember that bad days happen only because you let them-every day can be a positive one if you start out with a positive, inspiring morning. If music inspires you, jam out to your favorite playlist while you get ready! If good food inspires you, make the effort to cook up a delectable breakfast every morning. If scents inspire you, light up a Glade® Blue Odyssey candle, and let the creativity surround you! Remember, it’s all about the little things we can incorporate into our mornings that dictate our attitudes toward the rest of the day. And to make your day even better, check out this giveaway!
