No one likes getting up in the morning. It’s tempting to roll back over and stay in bed. That’s not a great way to start the day.
Breakfast is motivation to get you out of bed. Making it yourself is best, especially if you like to bake. There are many benefits to baking in the morning.
Here are just five reasons to get out of bed and start baking.
- It Motivates You
We all need a bit of extra motivation to get out of bed.
Some people have to set multiple alarms.
Don’t make getting out of bed a chore. Turn it into something fun. That way you’ll enjoy waking up more.
Baking is a good motivator.
Who doesn’t love freshly baked goods in the morning?
They are a great treat to take to work. If you work from home, it will help you start your day right. Give some to your neighbors if you make too much.
It will take some time to learn how to bake. It’ll also take time to learn while sleepy. Baking while groggy is definitely a skill.
Start off with simple projects.
Prepare the ingredients the night before. That way you’ll be ready to go in the morning. Some bread machines even let you throw the ingredients in and program things to start in the morning.
That way you’ll wake up to fresh bread!
- It’s an Adventure
Baking is a valuable skill.
It’s a lost art. Most people don’t even know the basics of baking.
That’s a shame. Baking is so much fun. And it is healthy.
Once you master the basics, you can spice things up. You could even start baking edibles! Here are some great recipes from Veriheal.
You could even start your day with a bit of microdosing.
Your body processes cannabis differently when you eat it. You usually won’t get as high as you would from smoking.
This makes edibles an ideal morning snack. You can go through the day with a bit of buzz without being too high.
If you have a party planned, it’s best to start baking in the morning.
That way you already have something out of the way. You won’t have to worry about baking later. And your apartment will smell great all day.
Everyone loves the smell of warm bread.
- Routine is Good for You
Routines are extremely healthy.
People don’t realize how important structure is to life.
Routines are not restricting. They actually increase creativity. They provide your life with meaning.
There is a reason most cultures have important rituals.
The modern world is full of stimulation. This isn’t the body’s natural state. Routine helps you calm your body.
Baking in the morning is a great ritual.
If your day starts the same every day, you know what’s coming.
It will set the tone for the rest of the day.
- Breakfast is Important
It may be cliché, but breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
You need energy to get through the day. Without protein, you aren’t going to get very far. You might as well eat something you enjoy.
Food Network has some great recipes for the morning.
There is so much variety in breakfast. Baking can be sweet or savory.
Making pancakes and waffles could even be considered baking.
Change things up every now and again. Routine is good, but variation is healthy. Your body needs something new every now and then.
Luckily, you’ll never run out of recipes.
- You’ll Enjoy It
Life is meant to be enjoyed.
Food isn’t supposed to feel like a chore. Baking should be fun.
There’s nothing more satisfying than eating something you’ve made yourself.
You’ll feel proud of yourself for having achieved something. And it will probably taste better than bread from the store.
Once you start baking, you just might never buy bread again.
Baking is a great way to create a family ritual. Bake with your kids or your partner. Or invite your friends over for breakfast.
Sharing your food is a great way to make lasting friendships.
Everyone needs a good morning routine, and everyone should learn to bake. Combine the two and you’ll have both!
