Good morning sunshine!

What’s your favorite way to say good morning?

Is it rise and shine? Top of the morning. Look alive? Or my personal favorite, wakey wakey eggs and bakey.

Whatever way it is, say it to yourself nice and early so you can get up, get out of bed, get outside, and get some sun on your face. I’m trying to do that. This is gonna help reset your circadian rhythm. Very important. 

But what we’re not talking about very much and is super important is our nervous system. Our nervous systems have been under attack lately. And so it’s time to nourish and reset them. I’ll be talking more about the nervous system in future videos. But the most important thing is to start your day with a sweet phrase, with a smile, and a little bit of sunshine on your face. And getting outside.

So, look alive. Get up, get your buns out of bed, get outside.
