4 Steps for the Best Day, and Life – Part I

Sleepy tigerYour eyes open, and your surroundings come into focus. Once again you are presented with a fresh start, a brand new day, a new opportunity for extraordinary potential. What will you do with this gift laid before you? Grumble and crawl out of bed straight to the coffee maker, or will today be different?

Here are some simple steps to get you on track as you prepare to conquer the world each morning.

1. Wake up like a cat
Have you ever watched a cat wake up from a nap? One eye pops open, then another. They stretch one limb, followed by another, and another until they are on their feet stretching the length of their spine from the top of their head to the tip of their tail. It’s so indulgent, and enjoyable to even watch. So even if you’re a dog person, you can take a tip from the cats.

Start your day while you’re still in bed by gently rolling all of your body joints, sensing how every movement feels. Appreciate your rested body, as you stretch your limbs. Wiggle your fingers and toes as you begin to roll out of bed. Use this opportunity to check in with your body, and create a mind-body connection.

Some mornings may only allow for this brief connection. Other mornings may spur into a yoga or body rolling session. Enjoy these moments, and where they take you.
