      Whilst we’re discussing ceilings, why not try this interesting design? Placing draping fabric on your child’s ceiling will add dimension to the room whilst adding softness and a cozy atmosphere. Ensure the fabric is light, but besides that you can try any pattern you like!

      3. Creating A Larger Space

        As far as themes go for children’s rooms, space is incredibly popular. Planet’s are surprisingly easy to make – you could simply use a lantern lampshade like this one – then all you need to is paint the walls shades of blue and add some stars!

              As children, my brother and I had a small pop-up tent beside our bunk bed that we absolutely loved to play in. Kids are always building dens and tents to hide away and play in, so why not give them their own inside-outside world?

              7. Bed + Storage

                    You don’t have to spend hundreds or get the builders in, you could even make a smaller castle out of cardboard!

                        For over fifty years, LEGO has inspired children all around the world: so why not incorporate it into your kids’ rooms?

                        10. Ahoy There Captain!

                          11. A Treehouse

                              There are few children who do not aspire to have a treehouse. Below is a time-lapse on one father’s inspired indoor treehouse for his kid:

                              12. Books! Books! Books!

                                homeinfurniture.com

                                Although this particular design is not fundamentally a bedroom, it is an incredible idea to aspire to! Perhaps you could place bookshelves under your child’s bunk bed so it looks as though they are sleeping in a Beauty And The Beast-esque library!

                                13. Swings

                                    If you have the space, why not put a swing somewhere in your kids room? Make sure it’s securely attached to the ceiling though!

                                    14. Superhero!

                                      With superhero movies being released almost constantly, kids love a comic book theme. Although the above idea centre’s on Marvel’s Spiderman, there’s no reason why you couldn’t build an entirely original decor on your child’s favourite hero.

                                      15. Into The Woods

                                      bafabf31d255dc912b2281f885c0d0c2
                                        houzz.com

                                        This room combines elements of fairytale, adventure and everything cozy in a wonderfully simple design that requires little more than a natural color pallet and a couple branches.

                                        16. Home Maker

                                        e48f7af89db8007e4e8a0e63026b7a9d
                                          curiositiesbydickens.com

                                          If you ever had a doll house or a Wendy house as a child, then you will instantly recognize the appeal of this design!

                                          17. A Rock Climbing Wall

                                                Headboards may seem like minuscule and unimportant parts of a bedroom, especially to kids, but the right one can pull the whole room together!

                                                19. Secret Places

                                                    Kickstart Your Morning Workout With These 10 Simple Habits

                                                    Kickstart Your Morning Workout With These 10 Simple Habits

                                                    Benjamin Franklin said it like this: “Early to bed, early to rise, will make a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” He knew from his own experiences and watching others that the ones who got up early were healthier and more successful. That’s why a morning workout can be so important.

                                                    One 2017 study found that:[1]

                                                    “after controlling for such factors as age, sex, smoking habits, and others…night owls, were found to have a 10 percent greater risk of dying from any cause compared to morning types.”

                                                    This is a great reason to tap into some morning motivation and get your morning workout done.

                                                    Circadian Rhythm for morning workout

                                                      As you can see in the above graph, your blood pressure begins to rise between 6 and 7 in the morning[2]. That means this is a great time to get your body moving and your heart pumping, even if it’s just for 20 minutes of exercise in the morning. 

                                                      Advertising

                                                      Here are some tips on how to find the motivation for a morning workout.

                                                      1. Remember Your Why

                                                      It starts with remembering why you want to get up for a morning workout. If you don’t set a goal and establish your reasons for accomplishing a health and fitness goal, then you definitely won’t get up early.

                                                      Getting up early isn’t easy. If it were, everyone would do it, right? Your goal for your health and fitness must be so strong, and the WHY behind it must be so powerful, that nothing will stop you from accomplishing that goal.

                                                      2. Go to Bed Early

                                                      If you want to get up early for a morning workout, it’s going to be important to get to bed earlier. Falling asleep at midnight and trying to get up at six just won’t work in your favor.

                                                      This will likely be very difficult for a few days while you adjust your sleeping habits. However, as you get into an exercise routine in the morning, this will naturally make it easier to fall asleep earlier and faster at night.

                                                      3. Make a Commitment

                                                      I sometimes tell my Facebook community of my plans to work out, and we all keep each other motivated by posting our runs, our workouts, etc. This is a way to develop accountability. By publicly announcing your intentions, you increase your chances of actually carrying out your plans.

                                                      Advertising

                                                      Another way to do this is to find an accountability partner who has similar goals for morning workouts. You can check in with each other to make sure you’re sticking to your plans. If that doesn’t work, hire a personal trainer for a few weeks to get you started.  

                                                      You can learn how to find a good accountability partner here.

                                                      4. Find a Friend

                                                      If you can find a friend that is motivated like you are, and you can hold each other accountable daily to working out, then you will accomplish your fitness goals. Many people prefer working out with friends to working out alone. Whether it’s a chat while hitting the treadmill at the gym, or having someone to spot you while weightlifting, working out with friends is sometimes just more enjoyable.

                                                      Texting each other the night before with a simple statement is best. Don’t ask: “Are we still working out in the morning?” With this kind of question, if they were thinking about not working out, you just gave them an opt out.

                                                      Make a statement instead: “Can’t wait to see you in the morning!” This implies that they will be there, and they will feel more obligated to show up.

                                                      5. Treat Yourself

                                                      We all have to treat ourselves every now and then. After a morning workout, plan to treat yourself with a colorful, healthy breakfast or a delicious morning smoothie. This will help you look forward to something and push through to the end of your workout.

                                                      Advertising

                                                      6. Change your Mindset

                                                      Many people throw away the idea of a morning workout by simply saying, “I’m not a morning person.”  Instead of using this excuse, decide to try to become a morning person by shifting your mindset.

                                                      When you look into the benefits of waking up early and getting some exercise in before your day starts, you’ll feel more positive about your life overall.

                                                      7. Plan Your Day

                                                      You know you’re going to be busy. Try time blocking to plan all the things you need to do on a given day, and make sure you add in your morning workout[3]. If you have a plan laid out, you’ll be more likely to follow it and get done everything on your list done.

                                                      Time blocking

                                                        8. Reflect on How You’ll Feel After

                                                        Starting a morning workout is hard, but visualizing how you’ll feel after can help you find motivation. Think about the extra energy you’ll have and how proud you’ll feel knowing that you were already so productive. No matter what you do the rest of the day, at least you squeezed in your exercise!

                                                        Advertising

                                                        For me, I live in an area where there are a lot of runners. When I am heading home in the evening or sitting out on the patio at one of my favorite restaurants, and I see the runners go by, it makes me feel so accomplished that I got mine in that morning and I can enjoy the evening.

                                                        9. Lay out Your Workout Clothes

                                                        Setting out your workout clothes the night before makes it impossible for you to start to run late because you couldn’t find something to wear. Tap into the determination you have before bed in order to convince your less-than-motivated morning self that you need to get up and get your morning workout in. When you wake up and see your outfit laid out next to you, it’ll push you to get up and get moving.

                                                        10.  Set Multiple Alarms

                                                        Many people miss their morning workout simply because they hit the snooze button so many times. In order to make this more difficult for yourself, set a series of alarms. That way, if you keep hitting snooze, you’ll have three or four alarms going off every ten minutes, which will be annoying enough to get you out of bed.

                                                        Also, put one alarm at least a few feet from your bed so that you’re forced to get up to turn it off.

                                                        Final Thoughts

                                                        About three years ago I went from being the person that says I will never be an early riser to a person that loves to get the day started as soon as possible. Without the distractions that begin to come around 8 or 9 in the morning, you’ll find that you’re more productive and more likely to squeeze in that morning workout.

                                                        Take some of the actions above and find the best morning workout routine to start your day and feel good.
