The Best Time and Place to Exercise

Is there a best time of the day to do your deep breathing and dynamic exercises?

As far as I am concerned, any time is a great time to allow yourself the luxury of a few deep, relaxed breaths.

Taking little “micro-breaks” of 5 to 10 deep breaths throughout the day is a great way to re-charge and re-focus yourself during a busy day. Or a boring day, for that matter.

When it comes to developing a daily habit or routine, though, I think it is immensely helpful to schedule your breathing or other exercise at the same time every day.

This allows your body and brain to become programmed to expect the exercise. Which helps you become more consistent and regular.

I highly recommend doing your deep breathing exercises first thing in the morning, after arising.

In the Dynamic Energy Routine in the Secret Power of Dynamic Energy Exercise Course, Volume II  I actually call the first series of exercises, “Greet the Day”. Because that is exactly what you are doing.

You face east, toward the rising sun, and soak up the sun’s brilliance, energy, and the promise of a new day. This mental component, combined with the breathing and movements, is guaranteed to have you energized and rarin’ to go in just minutes.

Better yet, whenever possible, try to do your breathing exercises outdoors, in the fresh air. Getting close to nature adds a dimension that helps you benefit even more from your practice.

It also carries you closer to that spiritual or divine part in each of us. You are humbled by nature’s beauty…yet at the same time elevated, because you are part of it too. 

Well, I know you are already off and running today. Be sure to give yourself the gift of a few minutes of deep breathing and relaxation today. 

You Can Do It!
