The 5 Things I Do to Have a Mindful Start to My Day

The way you start your morning sets the tone for your entire day. Yes, this means hitting the snooze button multiple times before finally emerging, and then rushing around like a dervish, isn’t the best way to set yourself up for success.

Ultimately, you can only control your own “energy bubble” — or how you choose to behave and react to the things happening around you.

Starting your day with a peaceful yet productive mindset will help you embrace that aura for the next 24 hours. Here are the five things I do to have a mindful start to my day and why you should do the same.

1. I Move My Body

The list of exercise benefits could probably fill a book longer than “Infinite Jest.” The human body was designed for regular movement. Think of inactivity like leaving a car sitting undriven for months. The seals and gaskets become brittle, and your fuel lines get gummy — the same thing happens to your musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems.

I love beginning my day with a few minutes of gentle yoga. This mindful form of stretching eases any mental tension — my to-do list can wait for 15 minutes. It also eases away the stiffness that can creep into joints overnight, especially if you have any of the various arthritis forms.

Although it isn’t always the first thing I do, depending on the time of year, I also like to get my heart pumping before I dive into my workday. A brisk walk or run gets the blood flowing to my brain, waking up my neurons far more effectively than coffee — although I have nothing at all against the magical bean.
