New morning ritual, running and meditation, need help.

1 year, 11 months ago

Hello fellow HEthens,
In the new year I want to start a new morning ritual: wake up, go for a run, meditate and take a shower.
What do you think is good order? Obviously taking a shower after running but meditate after I woke up? I have no experience in these things so I could use your help.
Any tips or suggestions?

Stretch, run, shower, meditate I think.
You want to feel comfortable while meditating. And I find that meditation after exercise is usually more successful

ive read that meditation is best right after you wake up, particularly if you can keep your thoughts quiet from sleeping. just wake up, stretch a little (not like a warm-up stretch for running, just maybe touch your toes and stretch your arms a little), then go straight into meditating. or you could always practice a type of meditation/stretching blend like some easy yoga or tai chi.

Maybe meditate and run at the same time? For me, running itself is a form of meditation.
If I had to choose I’d meditate before running.
