 Call Me Lazy: But, These Five Essentials Are A Must For A Winter With Ease!

Who else gets lazy doing the winter season besides me? No, I am not ashamed to admit any of that. Being a mom, wife, and full-time hairstylist, I can get burned out quickly due to wearing a plethora of hats. Although I am not doing anything, no other



woman in the world is doing daily. It has come to my attention; I need to learn how too slow down and re-energize myself. And this winter I have decided to do just that and without offering any apologies. As I am getting older, I am learning more and how vital it is to take small breaks and time out for myself. I wish I would have taken advantage of my physical and mental space when I was much younger. But, hey, it is never to late too start a new way of thinking and doing things right?

Start The Day With Coffee: Ok, this may sound lame, but a cup of coffee early in the morning helps me every time. Not to mention, I love to get up first before anyone else rises and starts calling my name. Not only do I have coffee, but this is the time I set aside to clear my mind, pray, or just sit still. When it's cold outside, I can never jump straight out of being feeling chipper for work. It has become vital for me to get up and start early in the morning. 

Cozy socks, coffee in a cup, and a girl boss book is essential to doing winter with ease.  Wearing comfy and cozy clothes in the morning also sets my mood in a great direction. I notice being cold makes me cranky, so it is a must for me to invest in thick socks and a beautiful robe
 Wearing comfy and cozy clothes in the morning also sets my mood for me to have a great day. I notice being cold makes me cranky, so it is a must for me to invest in thick socks and a beautiful robe. Yes, I am lazy, but lounging around in comfortable outerwear always boosts my winter energy. I usually do this on the weekends, because its hard to be in my robe longer than 30 minutes before work. But, its fair game when Saturday evening hits and I can get home and do absolutely nothing. #thatislife

Lately, I have added a few new books to my daily lifestyle, and I am happy to share that with you guys. But, I am not just reading any ole' thing I am focusing my time on ready books by women and people who inspire and motivate. 
 I just recently got my hands on the #girlboss book, and I can not wait to dive in and learn all about Sophia Amoruso. It takes a lot to be successful as a woman, so I am using any winter downtime I have to learn something new and life-changing.

 Moving forward, I've been adding self-motivation signage and quotes to my daily life. It's easy to get in the dumps doing the freezing days and months, but self-motivation has really helped me. Every day I remind myself how blessed I am right now. #iwokeup #imblessed #icandothis #iwin #iamawinner 
It's the small things that matter the most in life, and I am trying to keep myself encouraged.
Lemon water is a winter essential. Staying hydrated in the winter has been my go-to feel refreshed and full of luster. My go-to drink has been freshwater with lemon, which keeps the toxins in my belly and face at bay.

I tend to drink less water in the winter, but over a period, that has been a disservice to the body and my inner pipes working well. So, water is a must essential to doing my winter with ease.

Yes, I am in love with the sound of jazz, blues, and light rock and roll. When I finally get a chance to wind down, I want a glass of wine and my record player spinning slowly with the sound of old school music.

Call me lazy, but these essentials are a must-have for my basic life. I am on the hunt for simple things that helps life go in a complete circle.
