I may not be getting up with the chickens (ha! almost never), but I get down with them daily.
Over the last couple of months I have developed a routine that I perform almost every day: After my morning coffee and some blog reading, I roll out my yoga mat. Well, sometimes it's the mat, sometimes it's a hay bale - whatever I happen to find first.
Whenever possible, I go outside for my practice. Having the dogs and birds nearby, the peacocks proudly showing off for the ladies and the horses looking on is so special! It makes me deeply grateful for the beautiful world we live in.
While the sun warms my skin I feel the satisfying stretch and pull of my muscles; the dogs run by to give me a quick lick over the cheek; the geese gather round to see what the heck Farm Girl is doing.
They may be sometimes in the way - but I wouldn't want it any other way.
What is your morning routine?
