Imagine waking up every morning with a sense of excitement and a smile on your face. Imagine waking up before your alarm goes off and jumping out of bed because you just can’t wait to get your day started! Okay, okay, I know this can seem a little far-fetched, but let me explain. A morning practice is anything that you do in the morning to uplift and inspire you for the rest of the day. It could be as simple as expressing gratitude for the day, setting an intention, breathing with awareness, going for a walk, sipping on tea, reading a book, or listening to the birds chirping outside. Having a morning practice gives you time just for yourself to do something that you enjoy before jumping into the demands of your day. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?
My own morning practice started when I was only 12 years old. I was inspired by my father who would go running at 4:30 every morning, and I decided that I wanted to join him! I set my alarm clock the night before, would climb out of bed in the morning, get changed and meet my dad at the bottom of the stairs to run with him. I loved it! Since then, my morning practice has evolved and now includes a combination of movement, breathwork, meditation, and reading. You can read more about the evolution of my morning practice here
