First thing you did this morning? Woke naturally.. something I have learnt to appreciate so greatly.. something so therapeutic for all mind, body and soul.
I took a deep breath
I laid in silence and listened to how my body was feeling.
I touched my tummy and internally whispered “I love you”
I got out of bed..
Made my bed..
Did my sun salutations..
Remained laying on my floor focusing on my breathing and being mindful..
Continued on to drink my lemon water..
Splashed my face with water..
Brushed my teeth.
And moved my body in a way that felt good to me on this particular morning.. a pilates class (aka my new found love) w my best friend.
Ideally this would be my start to every day but realistically it isn’t.
I make the conscious effort to begin my day all the way up until brushing my teeth though most morning it looks a lot like throwing work clothes on straight afterwards (or admittedly while doing so) and rushing off to the train station while it’s still dark out.
