hello my friends welcome back to my
00:01
channel and especially huge welcome if
00:03
you’re new a lot has changed since my
00:06
first morning routine video so I wanted
00:09
to film an updated version for those of
00:11
you that are also new moms or just have
00:14
a limited time in the morning I want to
00:16
preface by saying this is definitely my
00:18
ideal morning routine outside happens
00:21
three or four times a week realistically
00:23
a lot of times things go off course but
00:26
I do like to share and I talk about this
00:28
a lot in my prenatal course that your
00:30
baby or your toddler shares your aura
00:33
your electromagnetic field for the first
00:36
three years of his or her life so it’s
00:38
incredibly important to set up your own
00:41
energy at the beginning of the day to
00:42
practice self-care your morning is the
00:46
most powerful time to set your energy
00:48
and mood for the rest of the day whether
00:50
you have kids or not so in this video
00:53
I’m going to be sharing the tips tricks
00:55
and products that I’ve used to really
00:57
hack my morning routine in the hopes
01:00
that some of this can be helpful to you
01:02
as well let’s get into this my favorite
01:05
part of the morning and maybe the whole
01:06
day is seeing Alex first thing in the
01:09
morning he’s usually smiley and excited
01:12
I breastfeed him in bed and we just play
01:15
and cuddle it’s the sweetest time of day
01:18
I scraped my tongue and brush my teeth
01:20
tongue scraping is an Ayurvedic
01:22
tradition you can ask me questions about
01:24
it in the comments below
01:26
next I throw on my workout clothes and
01:28
make every possible effort to get
01:30
outside I don’t like to drink caffeine
01:33
but if it’s a been a rough night with
01:35
the baby I whip up some for sig Matic
01:38
coffee otherwise I use their caffeine
01:41
free hot chocolate these are hot
01:43
chocolate or coffee packs that also have
01:45
500 mg of mushroom supplements in them
01:49
and if you think that sounds weird check
01:50
it out mushrooms are amazing for your
01:52
health
01:53
there are immuno moderators which
01:55
basically mean they know whether to
01:56
stimulate or calm down your immune
01:58
system based on what’s going on in your
02:00
body in any given moment they have these
02:03
great little on-the-go PACs so I just
02:05
throw one in the stroller as I go out
02:07
for a jog now this is totally a mini jog
02:10
to get fresh air it is
02:12
an intensive workout I think it’s a
02:14
really great hack to get fresh air and
02:17
leave your house in the morning first
02:19
thing especially if you’re a mom like me
02:21
and you’re going to be kind of house
02:23
bound or sitting inside at a computer or
02:25
with your kids for the rest of the day I
02:27
always feel more energized if I can get
02:30
out into nature even if it’s literally
02:32
for just a little jog around our block
02:34
if I got an early enough start I’ll stop
02:36
by a cafe on my way home to just pick up
02:39
some oatmeal
02:40
now O’Neil and oats in general are a
02:43
huge part of my Ayurvedic diet and
02:45
they’re cheap which I love if you’re
02:47
vasa meaning you’re creative a fast
02:49
thinker you love to move a lot oats like
02:52
oatmeal or barley which I like to make
02:54
at home is really great to eat at the
02:56
beginning of the day it’s gonna ground
02:58
you and set you up with sustained energy
03:00
for the rest of your day moving forward
03:02
this is the part where I also get to
03:04
feel a little bit smug because adaptogen
03:06
latte is at my favorite health cafe are
03:09
595 and I’m already sipping my superfood
03:12
adaptogen latte from the four sig Matic
03:15
once we’re back it’s time for Alex to go
03:18
down for his morning nap so I start his
03:20
white noise machine turn off the light
03:22
and then hop in the shower if I got
03:24
sweaty enough on our little walk run at
03:27
this point I’m really tempted to start
03:30
working and plowing through my to Do’s
03:32
but I know the best thing I can do for
03:35
me my mindset and my baby is to come to
03:38
my yoga mat I do a quick fifteen to
03:41
thirty minute practice and meditate some
03:44
of my favorite morning yoga poses are
03:46
guru poonam this is basically Child’s
03:49
Pose with the arms forward in prayer I
03:52
love doing this one in the morning and
03:54
just breathing and thinking about all
03:56
the things I’m grateful for down dog to
03:58
stretch out my hamstrings after that run
04:01
walk or jog a static hold of cobra pose
04:04
to strengthen my low back I usually set
04:06
a timer for two minutes and do long slow
04:09
deep breathing this one completely
04:12
shifts your energy in a short time I
04:14
also really like doing Kundalini style
04:16
legless to strengthen my core activate
04:19
my navel point and stabilize my lower
04:22
three
04:22
chakras I sit in meditation for as long
04:25
as I can anywhere from 8 to 22 minutes
04:29
depending on what my morning schedule
04:30
allows I practice Chandra Baden ah
04:33
breathing in through the left nostril
04:34
and out through the right this is a
04:37
cooling calming breath often practiced
04:40
at night but if you have a Vata Pitta
04:42
dominance in your prep 50 like me it’s
04:45
beneficial even in the morning to ground
04:48
you this is yet another way you can hack
04:51
your nervous system in the morning I jot
04:54
down any observations of my practice and
04:56
write my affirmations in my uplifted
04:58
journal and then I start my workday
05:00
usually by checking in with my uplifted
05:03
online yoga community and my online yoga
05:05
teacher training groups anytime I’ve
05:08
lost by having a little bit of a longer
05:10
morning routine I know I make up for by
05:13
bringing a sense of alignment and
05:15
clarity into my work my big tips for a
05:18
fantastic morning routine or to get up
05:21
at the same time each day to go outside
05:24
even if it’s for just a walk around the
05:27
block or to sit for a few minutes in
05:29
your yard
05:30
eat a healthy nourishing breakfast based
05:33
on your dosha for me that means hearty
05:36
cooked grains like porridges oatmeal and
05:39
barley drunk something that’s nourishing
05:42
for your immune system and gonna
05:43
kickstart your digestion for me that’s
05:46
the lion’s mane chaga or reishi
05:48
mushrooms in my 4 sig Matic coffee or
05:51
hot cacao and get on your mat no matter
05:53
what even if it’s just for five deep
05:55
breaths or a child’s pose now I’d love
