Starting Your Day Right

There are different ways on how we start our day, but no matter how busy our schedule gets we need to make sure that we get the fuel that we need to have the energy to get up and prepare for what the day has to offer. To have that good jump-start, I have listed my morning habit that could help you get the energy boost that you need.

1. Meditate


As soon as you wake up, what do you exactly do first? I know millenials like us check our phones first thing in the morning but we should all make it a point to at least spend even a bit of our time with just ourselves first! Whether it be praying or just staring at the ceiling in silence, do it. We at least owe it to ourselves before we get busy during the rest of the day. And it actually helps for me because that will kick start my day!

2. Plan out your day


Do you guys ever wake up at the wrong side of the bed and it’ll end up ruining the whole day of yours? Then you’ll be so cluttered and unproductive and be in a bad mood? One of the main reasons why we wake up like that is because of poor planning. We procrastinate and stress out on things at the last minute! (He he, I admit to this.) School and work helped me be more organized and systematic in a way because you really can’t just slack off if you want to get things done and be actually productive. I plan my schedule, my move, my things and even my outfits just so I don’t have to stress on much first thing in the morning! And so far so good! 🙂

3. Have a good breakfast!

I am pretty sure it’s not just me. Like I just said above, kick starting the day right will put you off in a good mood. Also, those days when it feels like I was most productive, it was those days that I actually had a good breakfast! If you still aren’t fully aware, I love food! Given that, I really give importance to every meal that I take. Lol. And if you’re like me who likes random experimental mornings, (I don’t like having the same old breakfast every single day) you should actually try to explore other breakfast options. 😉


It really brightens up my day when my breakfast is composed of the bread sandwiches by Bakers Maison by Gardenia! I love how different types of bread and pastries can “take me to different places”, It’s like a portal to a world of authentic breads and pastries that we can have that instant taste of the world!. Lol. Bakers Maison by Gardenia offers a wide array of offerings inspired by tradition and fusion of flavors. So if I’m craving for a croissant, I’ll feel like I’m in Austria (yes Bakers Maison by Gardenia’s croissant is inspired by Austria!) or something! :p

The bread is well prepared, and the presentation is a 10! Bakers Maison by Gardenia never fails to excite me whenever I have some at home, and I can’t also help but bring some when I’m on the road. They offer a variety of bread and pastries that you can choose from! Bakers Maison by Gardenia scrumptious choices includes Artisan Breads, Viennoiserie these are the soft, delicate with slightly crackly crust with a sweet or savory fillings, Snack Breads, Loaf Breads and Cookie and Muffins.

Among the wide array of premium and great tasting products, my favorite would have to be Pain Au Chocolat! I am definitely a sweet tooth and who could resist a puff pastry filled with exquisite Belgian Chocolate and Chocolate Ganache, topped with Chocolate drizzles right? Yum! Seriously though, with my breakfast, my mood and my outlook reflects the rest of my day so better have a good one! 🙂

On weekends, or during my free time, I make it a point to visit Bakers Maison by Gardenia Store in SM North Edsa. I enjoy going around the store and checking other pastries that they have, because I can’t help but be interested in trying something new. I mean, who can? When you pass by the store, you can smell the goodness of the breads and pastries and with all the choices that they offer you would want to have a taste of their high quality products may it be for a snack, a dessert or you just want to satisfy a craving.


Not so long ago, I visited one of the Bakers Maison branch and in the store you can see the different breads and pastries that they offer. Made available in the store are an assortment of Artisan Breads, Viennoiserie, Snack Breads, and Cookies and Muffins to name a few.

If you want to know more about Bakers Maison by Gardenia, and have the same experience that I did, try and visit their stores in SM North Edsa, Landmark Trinoma, Waltermart Makati, Glorietta 4 and Southpark District – Alabang, and oh! I heard they are opening soon at Alphaland, Makati as well! So go try their delectable pastries! I suggest that you also try my super favorite Pain Au Chocolat, because it’s giving me so much kilig and excitement writing this, because it’s really good! <3
