Live Your Best Life!!
It's morning! What is your routine??*Do you wake up, race around and take off out the door like a bullet?*Do you wake up, spend time in meditation, process your day and your intentions, eat a warm breakfast before leaving the house for the day?What is different about these two? It's likely that if you race around when you wake up, the remainder of the day may be rushed, stressed and pressed for time.

My Observations and Thoughts
As a wellness professional I am guilty at times of focusing on the distance and how fast I finished a hike or walk. Rather than taking my time and forgetting about the fitness goals.When you go on a walk or hike the goal should be to observe everything that you pass, discover new things, listen to the sounds, feel the breeze and just be there.

I normally only post things I have written.  I did not write this.  I don't have a citation for the specific words, because I have been chanting this for a very long time.  It is, however, a very old practice, and there are variations of it that have been used for centuries.  If you want a bit more info please read Jack Kornfield's excellent book:  "A Beginner's Guide to Meditation" This is also already posted on my FB yoga page, if you 'like' that you have probably already seen this.

Before settling oneself down for a meditation practice it is really helpful to have a physical practice, even a short one. Kind of in the same way taking a shower or bath or cleaning the teeth make the outer body feel better, by washing away the dust of the day, exercise helps reset the nervous system. We reduce circulating stress hormones, stretch muscles and fascia, and prepare the body for rest so it isn't asking for so much attention while we are turning our attention elsewhere. I call it the puppy scratching at the door.

The other day I was looking something up for a class, and happened to go through several of my old ACE manuals. For those who do not work in fitness, ACE is one of the largest certifying agencies for fitness professionals. I still have my first manual... published in 1987. I also later did a personal training certificaion, and then, after taking time off when my kids were little, did the group fitness one again. So I have a lot of manuals.

The research is in, and there's no doubt about it: Running and meditation are really, really good for you. I'm not just talking about physical benefits, although those are definitely there. Running torches calories and may help you live longer, and meditation can get rid of headaches, and its stress-busting benefits are great for heart health.

Sensei Dan used to talk about what the kids in his dojo learned: not just high kicks, and blocks, and so on, but also self control, the ability to stand up to bullies, and self respect. With any physical discipline there are physical end points, but also benefits of understanding, character, and behaviour. The practice I know best is yoga. Not simply a physical practice, it is unsurprising how much one gets from a long term yoga practice. Lately I have seen a lot of articles on 'the benefits of yoga'.
