The alarm went off and rather than hit the snooze button, I turned left and got out of bed. “Turn left” is my code word for do something different. Rather than begrudge another day of to-do lists and drudgery, I painted a different picture. How you start your day sets the tone. So today, rather than moan my way out of bed, I jumped up, put on some sweats and a t-shirt, grabbed my dog Yogi and headed for the lake before the sun was up. On my way, a quick text to my friend Ilana to meet me in the middle of the lake. Create an adventure first thing in the morning and the whole day feels more adventurous and playful. Get some sunlight, breathe fresh air and enjoy the first moments of daybreak. It’s the best way to start the day. Added bonus: Watching Ilana and her dog Ruby capsize to a roar of laughter. Happy Morning.
