Life Editor’s Picks: Rise and Shine

Wake up, Life Editor!

I know, you’re super stressed out, you’re not getting enough sleep, and it seems harder and harder to drag yourself out of bed every morning.

The mornings are tough for a lot of people, but there are fantastic reasons for getting your buns moving in the early hours of the day.

Early birds catch the worms, you can crank out your work before your day gets hectic, and (believe it or not) most people’s focused hours of concentration are in the morning. Ever try to write an important report at 3:00 in the afternoon when you’re dying for a nap?

So ditch your pajamas and stretch up to the sky! It’s a new day, and this morning will set you up for success.

Here are my picks to help you rise and shine!

1. Pilot Juice Pens. Skip the OJ! Try these gorgeous pens with juicy vibrant colors. I use these pens every day!

2. Hello Sunshine Journal. You can’t help but smile when you write in this happiest journal in the world.

3. Good Morning/Night Pillow. Your alarm might be annoying, but this pillow will sweetly get you out of bed.

4. Rise Sister Rise: A Guide to Unleashing the Wise, Wild Woman Within. When you feel good about who you are and your greater purpose, you’ll be excited to start your day.
