My Gold Mornings

Written by Rhea

Mornings mark the beginning of a new day and new possibilities and opportunities. Usually every morning is spent by scrolling through social media for good 20 minutes then pushing yourself away from the comfortable hugs of pillows. No matter how the weather is outside, it is still a new day and it deserves a fresh, clean start and an energetic you! There are days where I do not wish to wake up, I just want to spend the day warm and happy in my dream land.

The second I get down from the bed my feet turn in to chew toys for my little puppies, who had been patiently waiting under the bed, ready to pounce at my feet and nibble at my toes. Being greeted by them every morning sure cheers me up and gives the day a very good start and it makes me feel loved and cozy. Receiving care from your loved ones every morning is surely the best feeling in the world.

After greeting the elders, it is now time to face the world and I have to face it clean and fresh!

My mornings have to start with me cleaning my teeth and I like to choose the best brush for my teeth and gums so that the cleaning is efficient. Recently I found the Colgate 360 Charcoal Gold toothbrush and was immediately drawn to its packaging. I never had a gold toothbrush before!

I was absolutely astonished by its features when I first used it. Usually I stay prepared when I use a new toothbrush. The bristles are always hard and rough, which makes the sensation very unpleasant. However, the 360 Charcoal Gold brush had such soft bristles. They were also very flexible, living up to their 360 degree name and turning mornings into #Colgate360GoldMornings. The bristles are infused with charcoal and are also very slim tipped allowing them to clean the mouth entirely and effectively. I was very impressed by a toothbrush could make me smile so confidently making my day instantly gold as I had the confidence and freshness that I needed.


After I finish brushing my teeth, its now time for a shower. When I’m all refreshed and dressed for the day I move on to making breakfast. Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it is important that I have a healthy heart meal before I begin my day. So I start by cutting and mixing all kinds of fresh fruits such as apples, papayas, grapes, mangoes in a bowl and top the up with delicious colourful berries. While my oats and banana cookies are baking away in the oven for 15-20 minutes, I scroll through Instagram and twitter and check out what people have planned out and respond to any new comments and messages related to my blogging activities. I also like to read positive and inspirational quotes to kick-start my day with a feeling of happiness and gratefulness. Now that my breakfast is made, I like to carry my bowl into my cozy office and start with the day’s work. While I am editing or reading a few articles or checking my emails, I like to have a very soothing music playing in the background.

After getting on with several projects, and a few cups of green tea, I dress up to go out. However, the thought of going out in the sun, with my pets or my friends, not knowing what adventure I might behold is enough encouragement for me to step foot out of the doors and into the world.
