Are you rocking the 24-Minute Morning Routine yet? Yes! Tell me more. No? Let me convince you to do so in three short posts. Welcome to part 3.
The attraction of the 24-Minute Morning Routine is to get many high priority tasks done first thing in the morning, all at one time, and fast. Let’s call that Plan A. Yet, I’ve found an excellent Plan B: Flexibility.
Because my schedule is not my own, there are mornings when I can’t do my morning routine without interruption. I’ve broken it down into three main parts that fit nicely together. The first part includes brushing your teeth and drinking water. The second part includes meditation and focused planning. Here’s the third part.
6. Exercise (7 minutes). There are two great reasons to exercise for a mere 7 minutes every morning. The first is to wake up the body, to give the body a clear message to get moving. I use The Johnson & Johnson Official 7 Minute Workout App and here’s the science behind it. The second is to get fit arms. I run and bike and don’t do a blessed thing for my arms other than this workout. My sons say my arms are buff 😀
7. Stretch (2 minutes). Before the 7-minute workout there’s a “warm-up” option. I loathe warming up, but warm up I do. After the 7-minute workout there’s a “cool-down” stretch option. I also add foam rolling and neck exercises recommended by my care provider.
Part 3 comes in at approximately 10 minutes. After this I drink my morning smoothie, which I’ll post about soon, and I’ll either go for a run or take a cold shower.
Do you have a strong morning routine? Do you need a flexible routine? Do you have a favorite app for fitness?
I hope all of your days get off to a bright start ~~~~~~~~ Angie Mc
