For the next week, commit yourself to three days (in the morning) of what I am going to propose.
The first day, sleep in as long as you’d like. Eat as much as you'd like, of whatever you like. Go ahead and eat that processed American cheese and garlic bologna sandwich on white bread with chips on the side. Don't forget your soda pop! Oh! And a cookie for dessert too! Also, do whatever you feel like doing (or others want you to do). Sit around and watch tv for hours, go visit a friend and sit for hours talking, etc.. Now listen to your body. How does it feel? What is it telling you? I feel sluggish...dehydrated…My body feels blah…
A second day commit to getting up a bit earlier then go for a moderate 30-min. walk, a steady 30-min. bike ride, a 45-min. yoga session or any other type of exercise you prefer. Just get moving! Immediately afterwards, go to Dunkin Donuts or Tim Horton and buy yourself a doughnut or two, with cream filling, pairing it with the coffee of your desire. Take the time to ingest your feast. Then listen to your body. How does it feel? What is it telling you? Why did I eat that (those) doughnut(s)? I didn’t need the Iced Cappuccino too! Ugh! I had such a good workout and ruined it with the donut shop stop!
Finally, on a third day you select of that same week-repeat the first exercise part above. Go for a moderate 30-min. walk, a steady 30-min. bike ride, or a 45-min. yoga session or any other type of exercise that floats your boat. Get your body moving! Immediately afterwards, go straight home and eat a healthy breakfast or snack, such as a half cup of Plain Chobani yogurt. Top it with a natural sweetener, such as honey, chopped nuts, blueberries, and some granola. Pair that with unflavored room-temperature water. Take the time to ingest your feast. Then listen to your body. How does it feel? What is it telling you? Wow! What a healthy snack! My body really needed that. I’m definitely going to get fitter and healthier now.
The behavior of the third scenario is that of an Ayurvedic principle or Ayurveda ― an ancient Indian healing technique. It is a sister science to Yoga.
So what is exactly is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a holistic system that you can incorporate into your daily life. It utilizes diet, lifestyle, herbs, yoga asanas, meditation, and more to cleanse the body in order to lead towards a healthier state of mind, body, and spirit.
Basically, it all depends on the choices you make ― whether you commit to exercising on a consistent basis to move your body, the food choices you make to cleanse your body, and other ways you take care of your mental health (for ex., meditation, prayer, etc.) to clean your spirit (feel better about yourself).
Committing to healthier morning routines will create healthier days in your life ― a healthier mind, a healthier body, and a healthier spirit.
