The Miracle Morning: here’s why waking up early will change your lifeby
Doing it before 8am is the best. What we’re talking about? Basically everything: running, practicing yoga, meditating, swimming, walking in the park. At least according to us and Hal Elrod, author of the book “The Miracle Morning”. Here's why.
I know what you’re thinking: I am not a morning person. Well, according to this book, you can actually become one.
This volume, one of our Founder Janine’s absolute favourites and a best seller worth more than 10 million dollars, argues that to change your life for the better you just need to wake up an hour earlier than usual. And most importantly, use that hour with gratitude knowing that a new chapter of existence is beginning.
The Miracle Morning: How to
The key is in creating new habits, a list of simple activities to practice for no longer than 10 minutes. The first thing to do is meditate, then write, then set an intention for the day, finally do some sort of physical activity. Why don’t you give it a try: set the alarm at 5.30 (but 6.30 is fine too) and perform your rituals so you’re done by 8. In our opinion, new and improved tools are always a great motivation: treat yourself to this lovely Yoga Gear by MAATÏ MAATÏ and you'll look forward to that early morning stretch.
The number of those who wake up early to experience the city at its best is growing in numbers. From Rome to Milan, yoga schools allow you to roll out your mat from 6.30 in the morning. It is the preferred time of Indian masters but, above all, the one in which the body is cleanest and full of energy. Even for the six million runners who invade the cities, the time to run is dawn because the climate is ideal (especially in summer), the roads are not very busy, and the air is cleaner.
However, not everyone has a sporting spirit. For them, early morning is great for a simple walk in the park, perfect to experience your daily life as a small city vacation. And If you're more of a homebody, why don't you try to spend your miracle morning practicing a healthy dose of self-care - that maybe ends up being often postponed because you're super busy during the day and mega tired at night. Start by giving tongue scraping a try with the super hyped A Tongue Cleaner Changed My Life copper tongue scraper: an Ayurvedic ritual for detoxification and getting rid of bad breath. Now it's the time to implement your supplement game. In the morning, we recommend Anima Mundi Curam Elixir: a powerful blend of some of the most anti-oxidant and vitamin C rich foods on the planet. This formula is a deeply therapeutic mix containing a mega load of phyto-nutrients and essential minerals for total body harmony. Some of the wonders this formula can do are: oxygenate the blood, boost Vitamin C, prevent arthritic and rheumatic imbalance, soothe muscle tissue, and revitalize the cardiovascular system. And for an extra dose of fuel, Anima Mundi Adaptogen Tonic, amazing for boosting the immune system and increase blood cell production.
