EARLY RISER PRODUCTIVE WORK FROM HOME MORNING ROUTINE | Lily of Nigeria Lockdown Series

Image
A fool uttereth l all his mind: but a wise man keepeth m it in till afterwards. -Proverbs 29:11 KJV Hey guys! Nowadays we are all working from home, and I've had to adapt to a productive routine working from home. I find myself waking up at 5 am, which according to some experts is a healthy morning routine . It's indeed a welcome change, and I've learnt to make the most of my extra awake time. In this blog post I am sharing my 5 am morning routine with you, which some months ago would have had me rolling with laughter. I try my best to maximize every minute of the day, and get more work done. It also helps that the sun rises pretty early here at 4 am sometimes, and other times at minutes past 5 am. Personally, from my experience I think the secret to gettingup early is sleeping early. 5 AM: Wake up, and lay in bed for a bit. I like to dress my bed once I get out of it, it keeps me calm and organized . On some days I drink my lemon and water, on other days I make s

Quote of the day: "I will increase the number of people and animals living on you, and they will be fruitful and become numerous.

Then you will know that I am the Lord."- Ezekiel 36:11 Dear blog reader, I have thought about you for everyday since my last post here and words have failed me, until now.

HAPPY 2018!

Image
Hey guys! Welcome to 2018(I know i'm late it's the 17th day after all). Y'all, we are now live on www.lilyofnigeria.com ! The domain was a present. I also changed the theme of the blog to one that loads faster, and consumes less data (less than 2MB) at the homepage. All for you. I recorded a lot of successes on this blog last year, and a major heartbreak. Along the line, my host company and the domain company had serious glitches that caused this blog to load very slowly, and on some browsers, it didn't load at all. This was a heavy burden to bear and discouraged me from blogging as often as I would have hoped. I have continued to meet a lot of people, and brands as a result of this blog, for which I am grateful. If you are a regular here on the blog, you'll know we don't do resolutions, we do goals. This year, I have some serious goals set for Lily of Nigeria, and I hope I achieve them. All of them. Click to Follow Me on Bloglovin Also, just in

Quote of the Day: Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he grows, he will not depart from it. It's the most wonderful time of the year! Hi Babes, welcome to today's post. From my analytics, I know you like posts like this. So, instead of our traditional weekend Life Lately post , or Taking Stock post, I thought it would be nice to share some other things with you. By the way, during my time away, I had a lot of experience which I do not take for granted. Follow me on instagram here and turn on post notification , to be the first to see what I mean. Without much ado, let's get down to business (I just started singing that mulan song). Wall Posters/Pull out from Magazines and Books : I had a lot of wall posters... A Simpson Blanket : This blanket saw me evolve y'all. I'm usually emotionally attached to blankets. I've had my current one since high school.
