The Internet is full of self-care routines that usually involve at-home spa treatments, splurging on a designer item, or treating yourself to a fancy dinner. But sometimes, self-care is so much simpler than that. Our daily morning routine is the catalyst for the rest of our day, so it’s important that it starts off refreshing.
As a full-time worker, basically full-time blogger, and part-time hustler, my schedule is never consistent. So having a calm and organized morning is so important to me. I lean towards more of the introverted side of the spectrum, so having my me-time in the morning balances my entire day.
I’ve been making it a priority to stretch my body and at least get in five minutes of meditation before really starting my day, but nothing comes before my coffee. A hot shower, letting the sun come through my window, exercising – none of these activities have proved to be more successful is making me feel ready for my day than coffee.
To assist with my daily fix, McDonald’s McCafé has launched a new line of café-quality espresso drinks. I’m usually a black coffee, cream, and one sugar type of girl, but the new McCafé espresso menu features an Iced Caramel Macchiato and Vanilla Cappuccino. And with the small beverages at just $2 **, I can treat myself on a budget.
My day-to-day hardly ever looks identical, but nothing comes before coffee and thankfully I know I can always grab an espresso from McCafé. In between blogging breaks or running errands, a hot (or iced in the summer) coffee keeps me going and inspired. Plus when you buy 5 McCafé drinks, you get 1 free*. With the holiday madness around the corner, those free drinks will rack up quickly.
Throughout all the hustle and bustle, it’s important to remember to always take time for you. From Americanos to a Iced Caramel Mocha , which McCafé beverage will you sip during your “me-time”?
