Whether you are waking up to get to class, to work, or to yoga, we can all admit to having those mornings where we would love to stay in bed. Being a woman in today’s society can be a bit intimidating without a reminder that someone is always in our corner. Well ladies, we have found the solution to your Monday blues – you can thank us later.
Shine will text you motivating gifs and tips every morning, reminding you to slay your day. No matter what’s on your plate, Shine reminds you to be mindful and intentional throughout your day, boosting your confidence and productivity. Here are 5 reasons why Shine will help you to channel your best self —
1] YOUR FIRST TEXT SHOULD BE YOUR BEST
There’s nothing quite like starting your day on the right foot. One motivation text every morning has the potential to raise your spirits and help you conquer whatever your day holds! Shine texts you every morning at 8:30AM with a daily dose of inspo for your day ahead — helping you put your best foot forward + totally conquer your day. Who doesn’t love a little pick me up with their morning coffee?!
2] BEING INTENTIONAL = BEING IN CONTROL
Acknowledging our feelings allow us to be more self-aware. Self-awareness can be difficult to maintain during our busy lives, but can make us more productive + mindful. Help your busy self by letting Shine be your daily reminder that you have the ability to choose to be intentional + not life just happen to you.
3] BITE SIZED INFO MADE FOR THE ON-THE-GO GIRL
What’s absolutely amazing about Shine is that it’s easy to wrap your mind around first thing in the morning. Shine has it all here for you — condensed into a few sentences to be read with your AM Americano. Let’s be honest, we all strive to be our happiest and healthiest selves, but sometimes it’s easy to leave our mental health and self confidence on the back burner while we focus on the *bigger* things. Short [+ sweet] texts reminding us to love ourselves a little extra everyday are just what we need to stay in check!
4] CONTENT CURATED FOR THE EVERYDAY WOMAN
In addition to gifs [hello, Beyonce ; )] and motivation, Shine’s texts also have *amazing* articles that focus on all the good stuff [think happiness, confidence and productivity]. These quick reads are perfect with breakfast, or even during your morning commute.
5] MENTAL HEALTH IS IMPORTANT
One of the biggest parts of being a healthy woman is being the best version of yourself. Though it can be easy to just focus on our physical health, mental health is SO important, even for the happiest gals! Getting that little reminder to take a step back and evaluate your mentality in the morning could be the push you need to get your productive flow moving in the right direction. Shine reminds us to be intentional throughout our days — acknowledging our feelings and supporting ourselves through the good and the challenges of our day.
Shine has completely changed my morning routine and I can’t imagine starting my day without my little dose of #MorningMotivation. If you haven’t tried it yet, get your #ShineOn + sign up here!
