The name Jhené Aiko may sound familiar to some of you. This singer/songwriter from California has worked with some well-known artists like Drake, Childish Gambino, and J. Cole, to name a few. She just released her first full length album, Souled Out, this week and it is already climbing up the sales charts. If you have not heard her beautiful voice yet, do yourself a favor and check out Souled Out and her 2013 EP Sail Out, today. Trust me when I say that this girl is not going away anytime soon.

Try to wake up when your alarm first goes off. Pressing snooze may sound like a good idea at the time, but it will only make you feel groggier.

Try some yoga, or do simple stretches when you get out of bed. This will help get the blood flowing and let your body know it is time to wake up!

Drinking water definitely helps your body re-hydrate, and rejuvenate. Try to shoot for drinking two glasses right in the morning, and keep hydrating throughout the day.

Seriously, your mom wasn’t lying when she said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Plus, you will have more time to prepare and eat breakfast when you stop hitting that snooze button! And make sure to pack in the protein and fiber – it will help keep you energized and feeling satisfyingly full for the day.

Or at least splash a little cold water on your face when you wake up if you aren’t feeling up to a cold shower right away in the morning.

Turn on some fun, energizing music in the morning to get ready to. Music is a great tool to energize your mind and get your body moving and dancing to the beat. 

Hopefully these tips will help you become more energized and excited about mornings!
