My body is achy and stiff every morning when I wake up. My joints are tight and sore. My flexibility is more or less nonexistent. Think of a time when “muscles you never thought you had” were sore and achy after trying a new sport, such as snowboarding. That’s the feeling. “Go back to bed!” my body yells at me. I now know better that I need to warm up and keep moving all day. I know that if I jump up out of bed and skip my morning routine, then I will have a very rough day. I spend an hour or two on my mat waking my body up. I begin with breathing exercises, move into light stretching, and progress into more advanced poses.
I know that I feel my worst in the morning and my best in the evening. From the start of the day, every single moment will be better than the last. The day gets better and better as the day goes on! I typically spend three to six hours exercising and practicing yoga throughout the day. I feel my absolute best by bedtime, which sometimes makes getting to sleep difficult. I spend the whole day working to feel my best but when I finally achieve my goal, then it is time to go to bed. That’s alright though, I get to wake up and enjoy another day of exercise! Move, always.
