I was recently asked about my mantra of keeping my mornings fresh and cheerful. After laughing for a minute about it, I started thinking about those times when I woke up at 9 in the morning to miss the first and the second alarm, the office bus, the bed tea, the breakfast, the Halley’s Comet, and the holocaust… Erm… In short, my mornings were mostly not even close to being cheerful. It was rather a prelude to an even gloomier day I’m going to have myself or make it for the others.
But then I realized the importance of having a good start to a day, (if you think I’m going to preach like one of those TV ads, you’re probably right), and made some amends to change the way I wake up. My alarm got peppier (from the usual Samsung ringtone to ‘I wanna be’ by Bryan Adams), my breakfast got healthier (Or tastier as the Diet Nazis would put it), and I started making those small to do lists to be finished before afternoon. It might seem small, but these activities can actually make a big difference to the way you start your day.
And in comes the big question, am I there yet? That’s what I asked myself when I saw the #Colgate360GoldMornings campaign. The campaign is simple, to tell others how to convert your mornings into Gold mornings. And the answer to that question was, no. I was still not in the situation where the mornings are the best part of my day. Now would be the time I say that I’m not a morning person, but then again, I’m not an evening or night person either. Is bed person a thing?
So what else can one do to make his mornings better, or Gold mornings, as they say? Waking up next to your hot partner is one solution, I know, but that’s not an option for most of us, don’t you think. So what else? If you’re already done with alarm and breakfast regime that I mentioned, may I suggest Greenday? I mean, once you hit the playlist and start with the ‘Boulevard of Broken dreams’, there’s pretty much nothing that can get you down from that high.
Oh, and one more thing would be to revolutionize the way you spend your morning. Like changing your toothbrush to Colgate 360 Charcoal Gold? And trust me, I’m not just advertising here, look at this wonderful proof that I have which is making my Gold mornings everyday!
Now would be the time you tell me the things you do. And Make sure you visit https://www.facebook.com/ColgateIndia to stay updated for even more Golden mornings!
