Building Block #4 of a solid morning routine is taking care of your body. Think about this building block as having fun with movement rather than thinking about struggling with exercise. And think about taking care of your body by eating delicious food rather than thinking about the yucky diet food you think you should eat.
Sometimes in our minds exercise can be daunting and hard and no fun at all. Movement, on the other hand, can be dancing to your favorite music or taking a walk through your neighborhood and admiring others’ gardens. These activities can be interesting and enjoyable. No need to spend hours on end sweating at the gym!
When we think about nutrition our minds imagine small portions of food that isn’t very filling and that isn’t too tasty either. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Fresh fruit and vegetables are jam-packed full of vitamins and minerals. They’re quick and easy to prepare, making them an ideal grab-and-go food–much better than a donut or pastry. No need to spend hours slaving over a hot stove!
What are some fun activities you can do in the morning to get your body moving? What are your favorite fruits and vegetables?
