As I sat up in my bed and took a little stretch, the sunshine beamed in on my face, and I could hear the birds chirping outside my window. I thought, "Hello, beautiful day!" I made my way over to my meditation cushion and settled in for my Zen morning routine.
And then I woke up.
My morning reality actually looks more like this: My beautiful daughter is hungry and needs to be changed and fed immediately. My husband has questions about our plans for dinner that night. And my phone is pinging email after email with questions from my editor, publisher, and assistant.
Morning "routine"? Most days, it’s a challenge just to find a moment to poop in peace. And this is vital—it's so important to start your day with a healthy bowel movement, yet so many of my clients find it hard to go.
