UGH! Mornings are quite difficult for me. I have some headache issues and my neck, back and hips are on the mend from a couple car accidents in the past couple years. My mornings depend on whether or not it's summer or winter. Winter, I am affected by Seasonal Affective Disorder and I'm pretty much wrapped up like a burrito. In the summer, it's nice to let the natural light wake me up, well, naturally.
Whatever season it is, my yoga mat and foam roller are only steps away from my bed. Sometimes it's the first thing I do in the morning and also the last thing I do before going to bed. My yoga mat is my gentle hello to the day. I stretch. I get in tune with my body. I center myself for whatever's on the day's agenda. I meditate anywhere from 2-20 minutes.
