3 reasons you need a morning routine

How do you start your day? If you're like many people the first thing that they do is grab their phone and check for updates, emails, texts and start scrolling.....sound familiar? 

I know it's tempting to start your day that way but here's the thing: having a morning routine that doesn't involve Facebook, Gmail, or Instagram can actually change your life, one day at a time! 

Morning is my favorite time of day and my daily routine is part of why I love it so much! I typically don't check my phone until its totally completed because every time I do it throws me off my game and I get distracted. 

To give you a glimpse here's what mine looks like: puppy snuggles for as long as he will allow LOL, gratitude and visualization practice while I drink my warm lemon water, workout and yoga while I drink my coffee, finished by meditation and then a smoothie.

I can do all of this in an hour if I have to, but with most of my work now being from home I have a lot more freedom in my...

Try this powerful Yoga tool for stress relief!

 

You've probably heard that Yoga has lots of tools for stress relief right? IT DOES! 

But if you are feeling so stressed out that your mind is running a mile a minute and your TO-DO list stretches into next month it can be very difficult to sit and meditate.

I can totally relate to that and so can many of my clients! And if that sounds at all familiar to you too I have a powerful tool to share with you called Lotus Mudra.               

                                                                                                                                             ...

A powerful question to ask yourself anytime, anywhere

Want a simple yet extremely powerful way to ground yourself and return your focus to the present moment?

Ask yourself this question:

 

 

And then pay attention:

Where do you feel your breath? What is the quality of it?

Often when we are feeling stressed out or paying attention to things around us our breath is short and shallow and mostly in the chest and shoulder area.

Not only does this increase tension in this area because these muscles are not meant to be our main breathing muscles, it also triggers more stress in our bodies because it is the fight or flight breathing pattern.

As soon as you shift your focus to your breath and begin to pay attention to it you will notice a shift within yourself. As you tune into the flow of your breath, the feeling of it and the quality of it you will feel yourself becoming more relaxed, grounded, and present.

Tuning into the subtle rhythm of the breath is the easiest way we have to bring our attention into our body and into the now.
