The FFF Plan > Part 1: Up, Out and Move
GET out of bed, open your curtains, blinds or shutters and get outside straight away. Look towards the sun or where the sun will rise. Take 3 or 4 deep breaths. Fill your lungs to their maximum capacity and slowly release each breath.
Next do some light stretching. Stretch your back and hamstrings. Get some movement into your knees. Rotate shoulders, neck, elbows and wrists a few times in each direction. Now you should be ready for some simple bodyweight exercises to get your heart beating a bit faster and get your breathing a bit deeper.
These could be push-ups, squats, sit-ups, anything really – read this post for some inspiration and ideas. Don’t go crazy and the type of exercise isn’t really important – one or two minutes is fine. The main thing is that the combination of the breathing and stretching plus the natural light on your skin and eyes and the exercise will tell your body it’s definitely…TIME TO START THE DAY!
