One of my favorite things about living in New York City is that even though it can be very busy, there are a variety of ways to slow down and relax. One way of doing so for myself is enjoying a steady morning routine I have managed to upkeep for almost the last two years.
In partnership with Unilever, and in the spirit of traveling through my morning relaxation routine with you, a brief run through of what I look forward to doing everyday extends below:
I Wake Up:
around 5:30/6am on most days, and I immediately jump out of bed to perform a certain amount of crunches and push ups. I use up the first hour getting mentally prepared for my day because it's almost the only time New York City acquires some peace and quiet.
with foaming body washes from Dove, Dove Men Care, and Caress to help relax and hydrate my skin. It's really easy to use in all its light feel, and scent. Who doesn't love a foaming body wash? It consistently leaves the skin moisturized with an even skin tone. It's a match made in heaven that leaves my skin feeling fresh. There is nothing I enjoy more than a nice long shower, especially with products that do not leave your body feeling dried out like Unilever's new range of body washes. For soft, and deeply hydrated skin in this instance, the procedure is simple: "Pump, Foam, Hydrate".
in a light cotton bath robe as I catch up on emails, and scheduling for the day. They're quite comfortable and delicate serving as a cosy relaxation option. Drinking green tea or eating a platter of fresh fruits for breakfast help calm my mind.
