How we start our morning has a large impact on how the rest of our day unfolds. Maybe you have a solid morning routine or maybe it’s different everyday. Perhaps take a moment to examine your routine (or lack thereof) and notice what things work for you, or where there’s room for improvement.

Starting your day off with meditation, a big glass of water with lemon, and exercise are all healthful, energizing, uplifting components of a morning routine. Even if you can’t make it to a class for a good sweat, you may be able to make time for some movement at home. And if that’s the case for you, try today’s super fly DIY.
