Let’s face it. Not everyone is a morning person. But the morning comes everyday and most of our responsibilities, be it a job, school, parenting, etc., require us to get up and get going in the mornings.
Although I would classify myself as a morning person, mornings still don’t come super easy for me. Many days I’d much rather hit the snooze and skip the entire morning. But I’ve been doing this enough that I know as soon as my feet hit the floor, things start looking up.
I’m not going to try to convert you into a morning person, but I can help you develop a morning routine that will get your day started a little better than it might be right now.
For starters, a good morning begins the night before. In fact, much of my preparation for a good day starts the prior evening.

Walk, run, ride, dance, press, bend. It’s time to move into the New Year.
Moving everyday is as natural for me as brushing my teeth every morning. It’s a non-negotiable. My day doesn’t go well if I don’t get up in the morning and include some sort of sweat session.
Now, the duration and the type of movement depends on the day. Most days it includes running or biking because, well, I’m a cardio junkie.
Other days it may be a yoga flow or strength session.
I know that intentional movement everyday (exercise, workout, call it whatever you’d like) is not something that everyone aspires to do nor is it something that comes easily to some people.

Stress? Everybody knows what it is. It’s part of life. The way we handle stress translates into how we treat our bodies.
Among many faith and fitness platforms there’s this concept of Temple vs Trash Can. It’s not my original idea. But the idea here is how do we treat our bodies? Do we treat them like the temple that they are? Or do we treat them like a trash can?
