Today I am bringing you a beautiful sunrise over the Rangitoto volcano in Auckland. The first rays of light start to shine around 6 am at this time of the year over the horizon. Spring equinox was actually today - meaning day and night are about equal in length all around the world, and the days are getting longer day by day. We are heading more and more into spring here, while the Northern Hemisphere is gearing up for some of the last sunny days of autumn.
My body is still used to European seasons, it feels a bit weird and distracted, somehow I feel like I should be getting ready and cozy for the autumn, but in fact spring is here and my body is kind of confused. The green revival of nature, the blossoming of flowers instead of the yellow falling leaves and hot mulled wine season. Anyways, I love it! It is our second spring this year :)
I am absolutely not a morning person. But if I happen to wake up to a view like in the video below, with these gentle and beautiful orange rays of sunshine smiling at me through the window, I am ready to reconsider becoming a morning person actually. The fresh air, the soft breeze when I step out to the balcony, the birds singing and the clouds slowly passing by... well, it is so zen!
I just realized it makes such a difference for me what do I see first when I wake up. It can make such a better start of the day. I didn't always have a great natural view though. But as a substitute for those who are in this shoe, I can recommend a beautiful picture with one of your favourite places in the world, an inspiring sunrise or sunset, or whatever that makes you feel awesome, this can do a great job, too! It really does boost your morning mood :) So what are you waiting for, print your dearest holiday destination and frame it facing your bed :) This is the third best option - second is: go for a holiday, and the first best option of course is to move to your favourite holiday destination :)
I can't wait to share some more beautiful sunrise and sunset pictures with you with the Rangitoto and some cloudporn, kind of a "best of" selection of the past few weeks, in case you wan't to have this view, too :) If you are too excited waiting, you can check out some already on my Instagram feed :) Happy browsing!
I wish you all have an amazing day from here down under! :)
Are you a morning person? Do you have any tricks how to make the start of the day better?
Would love to hear!
