While growing up, I was not a morning person. I loved to get up late. After marriage things changed as my husband is completely opposite to me. His day started at 5 and mine began at 8. To work things out, I changed myself. It took me a few weeks to adjust my body clock, but I admit waking up early has brought many positive changes in me. Now, I love mornings. It comes with a new promise and you get to tap it when you wake up early.
What is so special about rising early, you ask? It’s the extra time you get to charge yourself for the day. When you get up early and spend time in the activities that help you energise, you feel your day has turned golden. For me, there are many things that brighten up my morning - a walk, light yoga, meditation and breakfast with any news channel in the background. But my personal favorite is going for a walk in the wee hours. Fresh air, less traffic on the roads and children heading to school. This is one of the sights that turns my good mornings into gold. It refreshes me and gives me new ideas to write.

When the weather doesn’t permit, I stay indoors and do light yoga. I stick to basic stretching with breathing exercises. It is when I combine yoga and meditation, my morning turns golden. There is, however, one thing that I do without a miss. At breakfast, I have to watch the news and sip coffee. Yes, not drink, sip. I take 20 minutes to finish a cup of coffee while I leisurely watch News. Watching the news from around the globe with a hot cup of coffee in my hands turns my good morning into gold.
Coming to the morning ritual itself, two days back my family got this beautiful package from Colgate. It’s very fancy with a golden mug, bottle and a brand new - Colgate 360 Charcoal Gold Toothbrush. The brush has the softest bristles, says my sister. Plus, it looks so elegant that you feel like brushing with it every morning, says my sister again. It cleans all corners of your mouth with less effort. In a mix of gold and black, it's so great that brushing with it can surely turn your good morning into a golden morning. It’s the best toothbrush she has ever used. So, if you want to start your day on a bright note, use this brush and make your morning into #Colgate360GoldMornings
