Morning Yoga and Meditation Practice
- 5-minute sacral clock
- 5-minute shoulder opener
- 10-minute quad stretch
- 20-minute half sun salutation with the metronome
- 35-minute meditation
This is my new regular morning routine.
And if I wake up early enough, I can add to the half sun salutations and/or add on the 15-minute morning yoga routine as well. As I write this, I realize I can wake up early and enjoy the moments after practice rather than rushing into my day.
Treat it like a 15-minute weekend—exciting thought on my part rather than doing more simply allowing myself to BE.
Or I can do what I usually do and lay in bed with my eyes closed.
That’s a sneaky bad habit for me.
The more I lay in bed with my eyes closed, the longer I lay in bed, making it more likely to fall asleep. Then I have to expend way more energy to wake up than if I had just gotten up in the first place.
The Silent Snooze.
