New Year, New You! | The Badass Black Girl’s Morning Rituals
We all have morning rituals to get us prepped for the day. Whether it’s listening to a podcast or drinking a hot cup of coffee, our morning rituals are a part of us. We’ve searched high and low for things that would enhance your morning ritual experience and get you prepped for the hustle and grind of a successful 2021. We hope you enjoy our picks.
Before the noise of the day starts, listen to this amazing podcast that encourages mindfulness in all that we do. It’s a wonderful source of inspiration! Gather your group of girlfriends to discuss how you find stillness in your morning.
This face cream is truly a holy grail. A bright complexion leads to an even brighter day. With a hydrating cocktail of hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and squalene, this face cream helps lock in moisture, smoothing and plumping the skin for a healthy glow.
One of the best gifts for yourself or a loved one is an app subscription to Calm. Packed with a 360 degree experience to help you in all aspects of your life, calm is more than just an app; it’s a lifestyle. Offering music, mediation guides, and relaxing scenery, the calm app is a worthy morning ritual addition.
A great morning ritual is not complete without a hearty and nutritious breakfast. Oatmeal provides several benefits such as fiber and antioxidants. The best thing about oatmeal? You can add anything you like to it! We recommend strawberries and bananas for a breakfast worthy of Queens.
Who doesn’t like the smell of fresh baked banana bread? Now you can take that scent everywhere you go with this luxurious shower gel. Filled with skin soothing ingredients such as oats, wheatgerm oil and fine seat salt, your skin will be as ready for the day as you are.
One of the main things that you can add to your ritual is by drinking water first thing in the morning. This fruit infused water bottle encourages you to lay off the soda and sugar infused juices and opt for a more natural option. You can create your own flavored water beverage filled with fruits and veggies.
Give your feet the ultimate spa treatment with these fuzzy slippers. Before slipping into sneakers or heels, give your feet some TLC by walking around the house in these soft and warm slippers. Best of all? They’re cute and comfortable.
You can never go wrong with a quick morning yoga session. This yoga mat has a double-sided non-slip surface, a free carry strap and is waterproof yet easy to clean. Best of all? It’s eco-friendly and Badass Black Girls love reducing their carbon footprint.
