This series of 10 mindful movements is a gentle and mindful way to start the day. The movements get progressively more difficult so don’t get all bent out of shape if you can’t do them all perfectly at first. This is about not meant to be an intense physical workout.

If in our daily life we can smile,
if we can be peaceful and happy,
not only we, but everyone will profit from it.
This is the most basic kind of peace work.
– Thich Nhat Hanh
Everyday we do things, we are things that have to do with peace. If we are aware of our life…, our way of looking at things, we will know how to make peace right in the moment, we are alive.
— Thich Nhat Hanh
