Each morning I wake up (generally before sunrise) with the dilemma (especially now in winter):
Do I lie here snug in my warm bed and enjoy being warm and having quiet time to think? I’m not expected to move or do anything so I can just sink into my thoughts and ruminate about whatever I want to.
Or, do I immerse myself in the fabulous book I’m reading whilst snuggled in bed with my salt lamp on and listening to the birds?
Or, do I get up and do some breathing exercise and yoga? I know that this keeps my body feeling better and I feel I am more productive when I keep my body limber and more supple. I like being able to climb on the ute without thinking “Can I make it up there?”. But this is getting a cooler option as winter sets in.
Or do I write – my blog, emails, on FB, thoughts, internet surfing? Writing and reading are such fun and a form of relaxation for me that having this mental stimulation is also an appealing option.
Each morning this is my dilemma – and each day I decide how motivated I feel although when there is an even more spectacular sunrise than usual – when the clouds are dusted with incredible colours – I am more inspired to burst out of bed and do breathing and yoga on the front lawn watching the sunrise and the colours change and getting energised.
I’m finding it a bit challenging to actually get out of bed early as it gets colder. Bed is very enticing – and warm – and comfortable……. Yoga seems like hard work from a warm, comfortable bed – but afterwards it feels fabulous – its just that now and later don’t have the same sensations attached to them – right now.
