Wake Pray Slay They Say

Whether you  slay the day or not  depends on how you spend your morning. I say the earlier the better . In the first post i talked about why having a morning routine is so important. Today i am bringing you the basic things to include in your routine that will boost your productivity.

Prayer & Meditation .

So research shows that people who pray and or meditate are more peaceful & energized . Set aside at least 10 minutes of prayer and meditation. There are a couple of guided meditation on you tube. Affirmations are also great way to positify your way through the day.


Streching / exercise .
Whether you do yoga, warming up exercise or intense work out. Exercise awakes the brain & boosts your activity.


Breakfast .

An empty stomach makes you &  me empty too.So try putting something in your stomach within an hour after you wake up.


Hydration & gardening your self up. Smoothies, fruit mix  & lemon infused warm water are a good way to starveggie your day. This way you wont be dehydrated & bloated the whole day.


Hygiene .

Make your bed ,take out the trash , take a bath & do some oral cleaning.


Babe time  .

Facetime , Texting & whatever helps you know how the people you care about are doing .


Eating the frog .

This means tackling a boring  and hard task such as folding a pile of clothes. I prefer doing this during the night but if it works for you you might as well do it.


Am I missing out on anything  important for a productive day. Let me know in the comments below.




How you spent your morning affects your whole day. Your first hour after waking up is very important. What is even more important is how you use it. I must say I used to spend 60% of my  first morning hours on my phone, the 40% is when I forget to plug my phone on charger the other night at 10%. So I would spend my morning hours on my phone till I’m too late for my day’s chores. Then I can’t make my bed, think and   my eyes are already weary from all the screen time.

When I came across this article, I was inspired to use my morning much better. What way is much better than getting a morning routine? Here are some of the things I would love to share with you.

A proper morning routine helps you clear your mind of small things like making your bed, working out, replying to emails and so many other chores you wouldn’t want to keep in between your main chore. You wouldn’t want to get home to an unmade bed. I like doing simple chores in the morning and hard ones in the evening. I am hard ass tired, I might as well use my remaining energy to tidy up my place.

It is not your daily schedule. Your morning routine shouldn’t be like wake up, work.  it is a way for you to boost your productivity in the also prepares you for the task of the day. Like I said before it clears your mind of small important tasks.

It should work for you. just because you work out in the evening, doesn’t mean you must learn to work out in the morning. so whatever your schedule is just find a routine that works for you.

You should enjoy the transition phase. You don’t just do it perfectly when you start so instead of thinking about perfecting. Think of how good your progressing. That way you are going to take one step at a time. There are days when I wake up and just don’t follow my routine.

That is, it. I would really love to know if you have a morning routine or would love to have one. Let me know in the comments down below.

Last week I finally watched the movie eat love pray. I read one chapter from the book and loved it but I lost the book and after a long search I found this site where you can watch or download like every movie and series. you can also download series on this site  . I want to share with you the lessons I learned  from this amazing movie.

God is the center of everything.

When Liz’ marriage was failing she knelt in the bathroom and prayed. Although she began with “God I am a great fan of your work “Liz prayed. She had lost her balance like most of us have or will. she went to god knelt and asked for guidance.


It is okay to admit that we have failed.

There is a scene where Steven, Liz’ husband asks her to stay although things are going nowhere and Liz refuses to stay.

NO, I am not saying that you should run whenever anything gets tough, but if it is worth walking away then you may just power walk honey.


Not everything is as it appears from the outside

Remember Liz friend Delia , she was also in a hard place and just chose to focus her energy on raising her son, Remember  Richard from Texas too .You . Do not stress over just steadily do something about them this may include staying. What works for others may not work for you.


Get going. whatever happens find a way to move on


Also It is okay to love someone and not want them back


We should enjoy food and not worry about the number of calories we are taking in. this better explained in my last post quote number 2



This movie had my traveling devils running wild. There is so much to see, do and learn out there .


Other things i loved from this movie are the scenes and quotes down below.

What lessons did you learn from this movie? what other movie did you learn a lot from? Leave your comment down below.



Top ten blogger android apps

After you are done reading this list, you are probably going to download at least one app from this list. As a blogger, I need some inspiration, pictures, Editing software and so on. This is a collection of my favourate mobile apps & i think you will love them

Without further due let’s get to it


I should put a crown on this one.  After I fell in love with DIY, I just couldn’t get enough of it. So I had Tumblr, we heart it and Pinterest. I later found out that Pinterest was that and more and so I uninstalled the rest. this app also rekindled my passion for blogging. these days I check Pinterest before I even check my inbox. Pinterest Users can upload, save, sort, and manage images—known as pins—and other media content (e.g., videos) through collections known as pin boards.[7] Pinterest acts as a personalized media platform. Users can browse the content of others in their feed. Users can then save individual pins to one of their own boards using the “Pin It” button, with Pin boards typically organized by a central topic or can also pin their blog posts and you tube videos. once you interact with others, after about a month your blog stats will start to go up.

2.Text gram

I use Pinterest and therefore I need an app that would help me to put words on pictures or plain canvas. can u imagine I once used snapchat to do that. Yeah me too.

In primary school, I was taught to how to draw stick pictures and put emotions on them. If you know how to do this then you have all the knowledge required to draw your life. Television advertisements, make use or take advantage of our ability to think of colorful possibilities. Whenever we see soap advertisement where the model has amazingly soft skin we are tempted to want such kind of a skin and if the way to it is using that particular soap, then we get it.

Every living thing has been created with full ability to survive all kinds of situations. For that reason, we have sweat for hot, goose pimples for cold. Whenever you feel hot, you either take off your coat, fan yourself, get a cold drink. The same goes to drawing our lives.  The left side of your brain talks you out of any edgy situation. The right side however is the creative side with which comes all the amazing possibilities. This side makes you happy, this is because, dopamine,serotonin , oxytocin and endorphins are released when you have positive imaginations.These hormones push you to act upon your imagination too.

So let’s get to it

Since we will be drawing, get a paper and pen or pencil. Draw a picture of yourself right now. Add details like your relationships, body and work status. I am going to use macho as an example. Macho is a college graduate; however macho wants to take full advantage of his gifts. macho is in a relationship with Ashley. he is a clerk at a local factory. the salary he gets isnt enough.He does more work than he earns. In one phrase he isn’t where he wants to be. Let us try to put that on paper.


A desired new reality

let us create the best life scenario for macho. He has amazing connections; he has made us of his gifts. not a must as a source of income but also making others’ lives better. He is bursting with joy, he is happy and most of all he loves his life. This is the best I could come up with.


The road

Like every starting point and destination, macho needs a road. now imagining that you are macho, close your eyes and picture the bold steps that macho will have to do to get to his desired new reality. I came up with these



Putting them together 

Your left hand side of the brain will try to talk you out of this. Because of this, you have to draw the most compelling picture. this will convince you.


Just like that you can draw your own. Set it as your wallpaper or stick it on your wall, put it in your planner every day before you set out, look at it and act on it. sooner or later you are going to realize that you are closer to your desired new reality than ever.
