What About Routine?

Sometimes it’s hard to get into a routine. Sometimes that’s okay, and other times the body thrives off having a rhythm that it knows and loves.

For me, when I skip meditation or yoga practice in the morning I have a much higher chance of getting irritable. That’s because these practices keep me balanced. They help my body, mind, and spirit all play nice together and contribute equally to my experience of the day.

In an ideal world I would wake up early every morning, and this is what my day would look like:

  • Rise with gratitude
  • Drink water
  • Meditate (also pranayama)
  • Eat fruit
  • Go for a walk or run
  • Green Smoothie
  • Shower/bath
  • Yoga Practice
  • Work, read, adventure, and otherwise enjoy the day
  • At night, another round of meditation before bed

Though I don’t do this every day, I try to, and I notice that the days I stick to this routine flow smoothly and happily along.
