I am writing this article on a beautiful Thursday morning. A time when I take it easy, write a couple of blogs and just relax. But this is a special day with sunny weather (a rare commodity in the Netherlands) and a high temperature of 9 degrees which will climb up to 12!
My significant other and I will be visiting the lovely town of Leiden which is about 2 hours from where we currently reside. So it was quite important for me to start the day right so here’s what I did:
Table of Contents
6:00 Usual wake up time
Snoozed until I was able to get up. I don’t need to go to work today but I also do not like sleeping in longer than usual unless I had to stay up late (due to some special occasion).
6:30-7.00 Get up
Got some herbs and supplements in my system and a lot of water! (Eletheuro, NAC and Milk Thistle). On Thursdays, I usually fast which means I do not eat until 12:00 (starting from 19:00 of the previous day) but today it will be a very different and active day.
7:10 Get some work done
Nothing fancy…I wrote a couple of emails and then allowed inspiration to pour out of me in the form of blogs in order to educate and help others.
8:40 My custom Surya Namaskar routine
Designed to wake up the entire body and still the mind. It is quite extensive as it contains over 40 asanas so I only did it once. Plus it is my off day so I need to stay fresh and help my body recover for tomorrow’s hardcore workout.
8:50 Post- routine supplements (Acetyl-l-carnitine, Creatine, Glutamine, Arginine) and water
9:00 Super healthy Nutritious Breakfast
Followed by more water and some more supplements (Alpha Lipoic Acid, Fish Oil, Multivitamin, Digestive enzymes).

9:15 Finish eating and get ready to move out
Yes,it takes me a long time to properly eat since I take my time chewing my food until it is liquid. The slower you eat, the longer you live.
So that’s my morning routine for this day. Nutrition in place, body awake and work done. I was ready to enjoy this sunny day and I wish the same for you.
I hope you try and enjoy this article as much as I did writing it. Putting together this article took a bit of time but it will only take you a second to click on the Share buttons below and show your support to this blog.
