I’m very curious if any of you has any original (or not:slight_smile:) morning routines that you feel have improved the quality of your life in general.
Some people meditate first thing in the morning, some read, some do yoga, some take cold showers.
For myself, I found out it’s nice to have a number of scenarios to keep things interesting, I myself often meditate and read in the morning, however, the routine that has influenced me the most is I think the silent morning walk.
When the weather allows it, right upon waking up, I dress up and leave for a walk.
No phone, no headphones with music (sic!), nothing. Just keys to your apartment and watch it on your hand. Music (or any content for that matter) is a stimulus, beautiful and worthy (we all love music), yet this is the time where I feel silence and space is needed.
The morning mind absorbs the morning air, and the feeling of leaving the house without your phone on a regular basis is just… extremely liberating (amazing that this can be a thing but it is). The mind has space and the freedom to wonder. My best thoughts and plans come out during these morning walks. This is the ultimate “me time”.
Highly recommend it!
