Whatever is fair. I have spent too many of my precious years and life on this machine.

Morning routine for fabulous abs, flattening the stomach, fighting depression and colds

A morning routine is probably the single most important thing I can do to get myself off on the “right foot,”  right out of bed. How does this relate to massage? Well, they are both about”well-being”. The more things you can do to foster your body’s “feelin good!” response, the better, more quality life you will be able to lead. This is what I do on my better “good” days. And I can always tell the difference between when I do my routine and when I don’t:

1. Wake Up and get up! No matter what time it is, don’t lie awake worrying, fretting. Before one pesky thought crosses your brain, get up.

2.Take a cold Shower. You can start warm, but yes, a cold shower. The benefits are endless. Increased metabolism, which means more energy, more efficient calorie burning, increased immune system function, better mood (actually fends off depression..) So stay in that cold water, ironically, until you warm up. Stay there at least two minutes. (Make sure you heat the bathroom up. I have a space heater for extra heat in mine.)

3. Get dressed and make your bed, assuming there is noone in it.

4. Have a glass of warm lemon or vinegar water. I like to add a little Stevia. This is a system cleanser and a body alkalinizer.
5. Do a set of 6 stomach (core) exersizes that fatigue your abdomen muscles. Of course, they are whole lot more fun to your favorite music. I also find that music changes the difficulty. It is much easier, and I can work a lot harder with seeminly less effort if I am enjoying my exersizes. I am going to do a video soon, so you can do your morning exersizes with me. Or come on over, for that matter. There are also a ton of them on You-tube already. The important thing is to fatigue your stomach and abdomine muscles so the metabolic process can start burning off the fat in your tissues.

6. Go for a 20-30 minute walk. The purpose of this walk is to rev up the ole engine before you eat breakfast.

7. Eat breakfast. I like to include fresh greens such as fresh kale or homemade sprouts in the winter time; and a fertilized egg.

I will be happy to do some stomach crunches with you when you come for your next appointment. So this is it. The whole purpose is to get your body metabolizing, and your PH balance right, the first thing in the morning. This has immensely cut down on the pain, both physical and mental,  that I feel throughout the day. 
Try it. It will rock and change your world. It has mine.
