My #Colgate360GoldMornings Mantra


Gone are the days when I would sleep till noon and wake up only when I would get tired of sleeping :P. Oh, how much I miss the days when I was single and was leading a carefree (reading no responsibility) life.
For today my day starts early in the morning at 6.00 am to keep things ready for my husband and kindergarten going daughter. Soon this 6.00 am will turn into 5.00 am when my toddler will start going to main school. Initially, it was really difficult to transform my habits. After all old habits die hard. We would somehow manage to drop my daughter to school before it would go over for the day. But steadily I am now a responsible mother who gets up way before everybody, and keep half things ready before waking up my sleepy heads. As soon as I wake up, I have to ensure the morning is pleasant and happy for all of us. Well, that routine starts from the evening before only when I make sure the dinner is done on time, bed made, teeth brushed and lights switched off on time. A complete, peaceful sleep is a must for a good morning.

As the sun throws its lights in our bedroom and my alarm rings, I get up and head towards to washroom to freshen up. And unless I brush my teeth, I don't feel active. I love brushing using Colgate 360 Charcoal Gold toothbrush because it is really soft and doesn't hurt and I feel every bit of my mouth is cleansed. Once done with this and the bath routine, I go outside to open the temple curtains to thank and wish the almighty for another lovely day in my life. Music is the other thing that my husband and I love to listen in the morning especially sacred or spiritual chants. As I am busy with all this and preparing the meals of the day, my husband and daughter catches some more on their sleep somewhere aware that I am up and working :) Sometimes they gets up themselves, but most of the times I bother them by singing in their ears or ticking them as they respond me with their fresh smiles. As I finish my remaining work, both of them lazily brushes together to freshen up and tease me in return and get ready with the divine music playing in the background. Its really heartening to see the little munchkin who instantly changes from a slow tortoise to an energetic hare as her mouth is cleaned and face washed with a splash of water. I must tell you that I have realized that choosing a right toothbrush and right toothpaste is a very important decision in life for starting your each day with vigor. 

This is how withing matter of minutes my good mornings are transformed in gold mornings and the cute, little Bhatnagar family is ready to take on the world with its freshness and happiness. With all this joy in the world, who would want any other life. At least not me :)
