Good Morning Flows

“Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning can often tell you what kind of day you are going to have.” ~ Lemony Snicket

You’ve heard the expression “waking up on the wrong side of the bed,” right? Well, some days when your alarm goes off, you and want to burrow beneath the covers instead of getting up and facing the day. Our emotions and moods are always changing. And depending on what’s going on in your life, you may be facing serious challenges at work or in your relationships.

We can’t control a lot of what’s happening around us, but we can take steps to control our reaction to them. Yoga and meditation are powerful tools to help us create tangible space in our reaction time to external events. No matter what’s happening in your day to day, practicing yoga in the morning sets you up for a positive experience.

Check out a few (of many) ways yoga is a great way to start your day:

Set and Manifest Positive Intentions:

Mindful breathing and movement helps us set an attitude of gratitude and a positive outlook for each day. Regardless of what the other 23 hours entail, you can choose to do something for your own mental, emotional, and physical health. Practicing yoga in the morning helps you quiet your mind, feed your emotions, and strengthen your body. Empower yourself to have the best day, every day, from the inside out.

Boost Your Immune System and Overall Health:

Yoga doesn’t just help you be stronger and more supple, it’s also excellent for stimulating circulation, improving digestion and elimination, and lymphatic flow. Our lymphatic system is what releases toxins from our bodies and pranayama and asana ensure we’re keeping everything flowing properly. Seventy percent of our immune system resides in our gut so, a regular morning yoga practice will help keep your immune system strong.  

Ensure You Don’t Miss Your Practice:

Most of us are living busy lives with full schedules. Yoga is an act of self-care. Sometimes, we forget to refill our own wells and end up feeling burned out. A regular practice balances us out, internally and externally and enables us to show up as our best selves. Yoga in the morning ensures you won’t miss the chance to be your strongest, most balanced self all day long.
