Thanks for being here, I know you’ve got a lot of places to go and things to read, so thanks. Means a lot!
Super excited to share my morning ritual with you.
I have been really patient about having a morning ritual that’s respect of your mind, body and soul for the past year, I truly believe in cultivating your own. Of course making it your own is KEY, so finding that ritual that is all your own, that respects and honors your body, mind and soul is really important.
If anyone knows me, they know I go to bed around 9:00 – 9:30 PM and swear by at least 8 hours of sleep. I wake up around 5:30 or 6, and most days I don’t feel tired or groggy in the morning. If I do, I’d say 90% of the time I suck it up and feel so glad to be awake that going back to sleep after the alarm doesn’t happen.
My phone stays in the other room, first thing, and I don’t touch it after 9:00 PM. That’s the one boundary I’ve been able to keep as it relates to my phone and I swear by it.
Once I’m up, I’ll oil pull (you can read my post on that here) scrape my tongue and drink hot tea. I wrote a post about those three practices in a post here that really helps to wake your body up in a holistic way. After that, I’ll take my probiotics, from SilverFern. A brand I have been using for the past 5-6 months, and really love how they make my stomach feel. Being conscious about the gut, it’s bacteria and the impact my gut health has on my mental state has really been eye opening for me. It helps to keep clarity of my thoughts and keep all my sugar cravings in check.
You can read more about my love for them here, and check out my probiotic I swear by here.
After I take my probiotics (yes I take them on an empty stomach – I feel like it helps – it’s the only vitamin I’ll take on an empty stomach but if it doesn’t work for you, do it with food).
After that, a workout happens, 100%. Right now I am training for a half marathon, and really loving barre. But when I can I’ll get out in Venice to do some HIIT and stretching on the beach.
Meditation, which happens before I start my workday. I need it to really clear my head, and to get myself focused for whatever I have going on. Sometimes I’ll sage myself (as show in the video) if I am feeling low or like I need to remove some negative energy from my field.
All in all, it takes around 2 hours, but if I walk or run to my workout class (which is 2 miles away) it can take 2 ½ hours. If I want to do this in a pinch, I can take just an hour from beginning to end.
A by product of my hormone journey, healing myself naturally, was also using tools like Silver Fern brand to heal my gut naturally, meditation to heal my mind and working out in a different way to heal my body.
So excited to share with you this video, and to share again a key component of my morning ritual, my favorite probiotic!
Would love to know your morning ritual. Anything you swear by?
