Move With Mindfulness

The Lilac Road Blog Woman's Stomach Belly Button Light Sunshine

Take your morning back from distraction and phones and planning and worry. Wake up and drink water, move slow, brush your teeth, scrape your tongue. Prepare your herbs and massage your body with oil. Do a breathing exercise then rinse off. Leave your phone in the corner. Make a simple breakfast and your coffee. Chew your food and only do that. When you’re finished, move on with your day. You’ll get more done during this morning moment than you think – maybe an hour of time total. This sounds like pushing productivity but I’m not, it’s ritual & routine and that makes humans feel really good. Try it out for a month and see how nourishing and impactful it is to move with careful purpose, just for yourself and no other reason.
