Good Morning- Morning refreshments which started to become a morning regime

Good morning to all of you coffee addicts. As a former coffee addict, I must say I feel better now and more energetic throughout the day than I did before when I used coffee and caffeine drinks as a crutch for not living a balanced lifestyle. Yogi's believe coffee is a negative prana food which means to "take away life energy". I know only use caffeine as a weekend treat when I can go out with my husband to enjoy a Cappucino. 

Try my morning routine:

Waking up naturally (no alarm clock ) opt to use classical music such as Mozzart) and use natural light sunlight. I first open the window shades to brighten the rooms in the house. I also open the windows to allow fresh air in. I make my bed right away and this energy of getting things done flows throughout the day. I drink a glass of tall water with fresh lemon and mint. I take a cool shower with scents that make me feel awake such as orange and citrus and mint. I first use warm water and finish with cold water. 

Then I drink a brain booster smoothie: (Please share) =)

1 Banana, 1 cup of blueberries, 1 tablespoon of avocado, 1/2 cup coconut milk, 2 tablespoons walnuts, 1 pinch of bee pollen, 1 teaspoon of MCT oil, and enough water for your desired consistency.

Give it a try and have a good morning!
