The morning can be our power hour, magic time, or the most productive and creative period of our day. But some of the best parts of waking up are the small things. The little moments and rituals that set us up for happiness and success!
You all know how much I love the early morning hours. As a proud member of the 4am (or earlier) club, you can say it is 100% my favorite time of the day. But it's not just those super early hours that I enjoy, it's the entire morning and always ends when my coffee. I drink coffee a bit later, usually around 10am, which ends up signaling the afternoon for me. From that moment I wake up to the last sip of coffee, here are what I think the BEST parts of waking up are:
Getting all the essential blog and school work done
Noticing the sun rising
Enjoying a slow breakfast (my favorite meal!)
Reading through that Bloglovin' feed
Taking stock for what I can do the rest of the day (now that all urgent obligations are finished)
Knowing that it's a new start for something great, positive, and productive to be accomplished
If waking up from a difficult day, I know that I'm stronger and can make it through again
The sweet silence and stillness that comes with those early hours before (most) of the world is up and active
Ending with a pot of fresh brewed coffee to sip and savor
Now, what's the best part of waking up for you?
We all know the iconic Folgers® jingle reminding us every time on one of the best parts of waking up, COFFEE! Folgers is our American inspiration for great mornings, following our dreams and passions, and stepping out in the world each day with confidence. This year, they’ve teamed up with country music singer/songwriter Chris Young, to encourage aspiring musicians to create their own version of the iconic Best Part of Wakin’ Up™ jingle in the Folgers Jingle Contest!
How can you enter?
Submit a video of your best version of the jingle on the website from now till February 27th. Your version of the Jingle must include the complete melody and complete lyrics of “The Best Part of Wakin’ Up is Folgers in Your Cup.” Then from February 27th to March 19th, they'll choose 5 semi-finalists and each will have a mentor session with Chris Young before the daily online vote for the public from March 27th to April 24th. Every vote automatically enters you to win prizes up to $10,000! Finally, in May, one winner will be selected to win the grand prize of $25,000!
So tell me:
+ What's "the best part of wakin' up" for you?
