“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive -to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”– Marcus Aurelius
The morning is a very special time of the day. It is an opportunity for a fresh new start, an opportunity to live another day, structure it the way you want, and make choices that allow you to feel good with your self. The way we start our day strongly influences the rest of our day. Allow the beginning of your day to inspire you for the hours ahead. In this post I will introduce you to such a morning routine. It does not take long to follow the routine and is suitable for everyone even if you don’t want to commit to getting up much earlier than you usually do.
Eating is a natural necessity for us and thanks to the opportunities we have today it can be so beautiful and fun. Being here in India has forced us to eat very cautious and really pay attention to where and which food we are eating. This has led to very mindful eating, which left me feeling so good and inspired me to write this post.
We are more than just a body with its needs and we are more than just a mind with its thoughts. We are a complex composition of mind, body, and soul. Our being is made up of all three parts. All three parts influence our emotions, thoughts, and actions. Understanding this is so important when looking at our eating behavior and motivation behind it.
