  1. List 3 things you’re thankful for in your life in your head or on paper. :)

  2. I love to start my day with some warm lemon water and 10 minutes of yoga.

  3. I wake up every morning and tell my boyfriend I love him and give him a kiss. It’s the best part of my day.

  4. I like some quiet time to fully wake up before I start my day!

  5. I love starting off my day with a filling healthy breakfast and a cool morning run, especially in the woods in the fall weather.

  6. Love motivational posters like this. Thanks for posting!

  7. I love to name at least one thing I’m grateful for. Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. Thank God for something..that I woke up, that I’m healthy, for friends, etc.
    Have a good quiet time learning more about Him.

  9. Praying with my little guy at breakfast starts my day off on the right foot – being grateful for another beautiful day and food on the table.

  10. that is a perk to being up early for school seeing the sunrise :-)

  11. I roll out of bed, put my sneakers on and go WORK OUT, first thing EVERY morning!!

  12. I make sure to wake up early enough to have time for a quick workout… even if it’s just a 15 minute run around my neighborhood, it always makes me feel great.

  13. I read devotionals and I also watch funny shows, like I Love Lucy and Golden Girls to get my day started off right!

  14. My favorite way to start my day is to snuggle with my cat. He purrs SO LOUD and just cuddles right up to me and we start out the day quietly like that together. :-)
