9 Important Running Rituals to Make Part of Your Routine By Megan Harrington As runners, we spend a lot of time focusing on our pace, our form and our mileage, but even the most dedicated athletes can sometimes forget about the importance of pre and post-run habits. The first step to any new habit is always the hardest. To ease the transition, create a ritual that prepares you for the task to bridge the gap between your existing routine and your new one. Smaller steps may seem like the slower approach to achieving a goal, but it often leads you much more quickly to where you want to be due to the powerful momentum you get going. 3. Form a Ritual.

  • What is your favorite Olympic moment of all time? Let us know in the comments below and it might be featured in the next #ThrowbackThursday!

  • Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu. It is so good to see you! I’m happy to hear that you are well and that your absence has been a means of self care. Jazakillah khair for sharing your morning routine with us these are such wonderful reminders. May Allah support us in being consistent and put barakatu in our time, our health and in all of our efforts. Sending love and lots of du’a. ❤️

  • the anthem singer was not real, she used other girl’s voice and being choose bcs of her face was more beautiful than the real singer.

  • What a beautiful lady, I can feel her energy just watching her, her advices makes sense, I already feel energetic ready to tide my house.

  • Adriene…I love my yoga time with you & Benji. You are such an incredible instructor with unique/cool moves…You are so funny as well. ��☺️��

  • I am doing 30 days of yoga with you at the moment and felt I needed to check in with my abs today. Amazing how much easier it is when I don’t do yoga robot and keep moving while doing these poses!

  • I am often so unmotivated to dedicate myself to a long workout and keep it up but this is so short and sweet (although hard!) that I can keep it up! Definitely a quarantine fave!

  • Salam. I use the following adkahr book. It’s extremely useful as it has morning/evening/night/after Fardh Salah adkhar. It includes the benefits too. https://uwt.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Adkhar_Book.pdf

  • I never thought I would enjoy Yoga. I did the 30 day challenge after Savannah Guthrie mentioned on the Today Show. I was looking for something to do at home in the mornings during this pandemic nightmare. Well, I fell in love with it! Adriene is an amazing, funny, wonderful instructor. After the 30th day and had to continue and today is my day 2 of this video. I look better, feel better and have something to look forward every morning. I’m in love with my new healthy morning routine. PS my puppy is also right by my side every morning..

  • Jealousy is what drives this man to become the best. The most humble human being and loves his job more than any athlete I’ve ever seen☝☝��

  • I don’t get it why they don’t call it what it is. These are all very common Qigong exercises, except that the presentation is quite chaotic.

  • I can’t get up..your truly, Frank ” I Need To Gain Core Strength” Lambert… Love the simpleness of it all and covering my questions at the same time…Very Cool. Peace:)

  • If you look past what your eyes see and listen to what she’s teaching you for FREE, one would realize there’s a lot of power in sacred movements (google it)
    I’ve incorporated a few of these with some Tai Chi movement &Arabic Rhythms I “energy dance” to.
    It’s not very long but every morning, I do these movements and it really does make a difference.
    The movements she shares are something incredible when applied daily read again.
    So don’t look at it to judge, do it one time and think it doesn’t work.
    “Not everything in life can go in a microwave, after all.”@
    You might think she’s hokey and I’m weird, but there’s value in free information, a fool declines it.

  • From what source does the Energy come? Is it a physical phenomenon, acupressure or something like god? Please clarify if you can.

  • Salaam. Thank you for every thing that you are doing. You are inspiring me to get back. In what I use to do again. I feel like changing myself again please I need a copies of your books that has everything and can lead me to a happy healthy lifestyle back again insha Allah. And your Ramadan series as well. Thank you

  • I received this yesterday, read the guidebook and started doing the chakra clearing and meridian clearing with the crystal.  I felt a warm sensation in some of the Chakra’s and Meridian end points.  It even started to feel hot on some of them!  

  • JazakAllahu Khayran. Alhamdulillah I’ve been able to maintain a consistent workout schedule, but now I can take it to the next level, in sha Allah.

  • Sunnah-inspired morning routine? Love love love. We definitely need this ini our lives. I absolutely loved the content. May Allah bless you abundantly. Thank you for sharing!! Sending much love from Ukraine.

  • Just what I needed…added it to Day 28 of 30 days of Yoga with Adriene for an afternoon pick-me-up on my Staying Safe, Staying Home Memorial Day!:)

  • I can’t even imagine the staggering amount of manpower employed to pull off this massive opening, from the performers to the behind the scenes workers like the craftsmen, the make up artists, the costume tailors, musicians etc etc. It must have been chaotic leading up to opening day.

  • Very very helpful for me ���������� thank you…. the resonance is incredible. Discovering my main dosha is so helpful. All the ways you Mentioned I could create balance are the things that I KNOW have been out of balance, it’s so supportive to know what steps to take to move forward. I’m inspired. For the sake of love & my wellbeing. Thank you.

  • If you ask my advice, i would suggest you to do both. And i can say this because now when do my regular push ups at my home (after learning yoga and mediation) i actually activate my specific body parts more easily as compared to previous years. So let say i

  • I first did this video around 3 months ago (start of lockdown!) and god it hurt So Bad! But after 3 months of following your yoga workouts every day it was so much easier (not to say it first still get my abs going 😉 ) I can honestly feel so many benefits to yoga and it’s changed my life <3

  • Being an Indian Muslim I was so confused that after Fajr what I exactly have to do. I had all these knowledge of adhkaar and Quran recitation since after Fajr prayers but found that yoga is also done at sunrise time. So now I understood soon after Fajr, adhkaar and Quran recitation��, then yoga and workout, and then breakfast��‍��‍��‍����

  • Hi adrine I have really bad Lower belly fat having pcod history.I have tired everything but still can’t get rid of it.Please need your advice on it.

  • At 29:26 if look �� you will see a person wearing AirPods is this a time traveler this is in 2008 people didn’t have AirPods back in 2008

  • Hi Adrienne, firstly thanks for your brilliantly accessible yoga videos, they are challenging and fun. I share your humour and admire your humility ��
    I’m a singer with well known UK folk band, Merry Hell.
    Since lockdown, I haven’t been belting out the usual big songs night after night and I need to reconnect with my singing muscles; the diaphragm and the upper abdominals
    Can you do a session for singers?
    That would be so helpful!
    Thanks again and lots of love to you xx

  • Despite the grandeur, this must be the worst scandal by the organizers to use a fake girl to lip synch the song. Bcos the original girl singer was considered ugly. And to make it worst, the national gymnastics team faked the qualifying age of 2 of their elite gymnasts. Basically the 2 girls were under-aged. All i can say is that beijing 2008 was an olympics of national shame. Poor athletes were under corrupted hands of their national administrators. Well, china faked everything.

  • If you can find Donna Eden’s “The Energy Medicine Kit”, buy it for yourself!!! There is so much information on how to work with your energies in there! There is also tons of free content on her YouTube channel.

  • A request! First off, thank you I have been doing your video’s pretty much daily since January and it has given me so much confidence, and strength. You have so many videos to choose from ( for which I’m very grateful!), but I wondered if you would consider doing a booty add on. I have done your longer booty ones a fair bit, but sometimes just think some extra bottom work at the end of another work out would be beneficial for me. Thank you again Adriene xx

  • I just feel like sharing this, my friend has had body image issues for a long time so this quarantine I asked her to do yoga instead of just talking about losing weight and I knowingly asked her to do yoga with adriene. 2 weeks in she told me that she no longer cares about losing weight and instead how yoga is making her body feel, she wants to learn balance and gain strength. Thank you so much adriene, I’m forever grateful.

  • I have pretty awful carpal tunnel and wanted a whole body, short and sweet yoga video that I could do this morning. This hit the spot just right. Thanks adriene!

  • Being a personal development info junkie…. Its sooo soo refreshing to see deen inspired routine. So beautiful. Allah blee you desr sis anf give u immense khayr afiyah and succesz in Both worlds.

  • I can definitely feel this in my abs while doing this sequence, but having some trouble relaxing the neck. Any tips for that? Thank you Adriene for another excellent video, Im so grateful to have found you here.

  • MashaAllah, beautiful morning routine that is sure to benefit us in this world and hereafter. I’ve seen so many morning routine video but nothing like this ; It’s all in one, remembering our creator, showing gratitude, meditation, quality me time and looking after our body and mind ��

  • Hi I tried hip openers, the shapes were good except couldn’t get elbows near to ground for first move. Left hip especially limited. Any suggestions to work towards crossed legs and elbows to earth?

  • AS SALAAMU ALAIKUM Uhkti. BARAKULLAH HU FEEKY! You appear to be a great example of a contemporary Hijabi, you have style, without losing your modesty, and you give great advice on how to live a full and balanced life, with a focus around the Deen. JAZAK’ULLAH HU KIARUN! May ALLAH continue to allow you to be a motivation and inspiration to Muslimah’s and Muslims.

  • Could you maybe make a video for Costochondritis pain? I’ve found a few other people that have made these videos but you’re still my favorite person to follow along with and listen to

  • Don´t know why but the NBA is nowadays totaly boring. I can´t explain but it´s annoying to watch Curry playing. The 90s was the absolute classic and best decade in history of NBA. I give a fuck if the statistics speaks another language. The players today are not the same: Jordan, Johnson, Pippen and Co were more interessant than the stars today!

  • This is the greatest opening ceremony I’ve ever seen. The way they lit the flame brought tears to my eyes, the human artistic achievement.

  • Aminaaaa ya uhkhtii Jazak’Allahu Khayran sister for making this video for us, I love it! You’re so positive and inspiring Masha’Allah �� love you for the sake of Allah ��❤️❤️❤️

  • Masha Allah! Please join me at @MercyofAllahNeeded on fb, Twitter and especially Instagram! I’ve been looking for this very thing for sisters! It’s the cure for sadness, anxiety and ALOT of the levels of depression (therapy recommended for it with the help of Allah (ﷻ)). Alhamdulillah for this study. Masha Allah ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ great job sis!

  • I wonder why he even felt the need and desire to want to master that extremely difficult double between the legs dribble drill? He would never need to know how to do this, because he would never use it in any situation. Incredible to watch.

  • Aslamo alekum I am a mum of 4 and trying to follow your workouts. I’m not motivated and with kids life is so busy that I completely forget about myself most of the times and it has lead me to obesity and unhealthy life style. I will try to catch up all 5 minutes work out Insha Allah.You are a beautiful lady with beautiful intention and heart�� May Allah SWT give you ajar for what you are giving back to people of what you learnt. Ameen

  • Good practice. Hard though. So it’s what I need. Only had 10 minutes today so I did this instead of the day 20 to 30 days of yoga. Be back tomorrow!

  • Yes this ceremony is awesome, but the fact this stadium can’t use real grass because of giant hole from this ceremony (for the globe and performer to came out) and the stadium used rarely now because of the grass, really show us that the real great show had to left great legacy too

  • ive been trying other, high impact ab workouts for nearly a week now but i just don’t think they’re for me. i‘m heaving by the end of them (regardless of how many breaks i took) and my heart takes nearly an hour to slow down. i think this one is just perfect though, it’s gentle enough that i am not gasping for air every ten seconds and it puts no strain on my back like the others. thank you adriene, i think i finally found something that works for me:)

  • In this vid she mentions the zip-up but she also says you can do the blow-out before the zip-up (yes it sounds naughty) but in this context what is the blow-out?

  • I think there’s so much to be learned from how he approaches this warmup, no matter the field you’re in (in my case, music!): just the state of flow he gets into. And, he misses! I love that after every miss, he stays in the moment and in that flow state. Oh, and how did he play this game? He was the highest scorer on the court with 39 POINTS!

  • Hi Adrienne! I’ve been physically active most of my life. I danced for years. I stopped working out a couple years ago so I’m not in great physical shape at the moment but trying to get started again. I’m 52 and able to get back into things quickly. I’ve had a problem with sciatica on my right side but I can work through it. What really upsets me is my right knee. I can do all the movements but I’ve always had some pain in that area. It’s not terrible but enough that it really bothers me periodically throughout the day when I exercise. I want to enjoy a good practice but I’m not sure how to keep from pushing my knee too hard while getting strong again. What are your suggestions? Thank you! I love your personality ����‍♀️��

  • Does this hurt everyone’s back like hell or is that just my back problems flaring up? I can’t figure out if I’m doing something wrong lol

  • Absolutely great, thank you Adrienne! I started with beginners, now I’m on day 13 of 30 days and today I added the 6 minute abs yoga. You make me feel comfortable doing as much as I can manage and confident that I will improve. Thank you so so much!

  • Thank you donna eden. I’ve been doing the energy routine since i took Energy Medicine at MCTC. You inspired me to take my energy healing to a whole new level!

  • Does anyone know what the name of the video is that is previewed at the end? If you liked that, check out this video… but there isn’t a link for it.

  • I love to see the greats demonstrate mastery of their craft. Mastery of the fundamentals. This is so powerful and enlightening. The amount of work they put in to get to where they are is awesome to see.

  • I just love your videos Andriene!! You are such a fun person to do yoga with!! Do you have a yoga routine that targets muffin tops and saddle bags ;-). Such funny words for trouble some spots!!

  • This is awesome! Thank you, Donna Eden. I noticed this is an old video. Are you still doing energy work? How can I find your latest information?

  • Thanks for this amazing tips. This would definitely help.
    I have a question: what should I do first in morning, drink warm water with lemon or exercise? And what should be the time gap between them?

  • It’s so contented to see ur desire and inclination towards India’s5000 year old values…
    You can also try out A COMPLETE SANATAN /VEDIC LIFESTYLE for success, harmony & peace.
    Greetings from India.

  • The Chinese are experts at emotional manipulation. I am literally incapable of watching the whole thing without crying multiple times.

  • Hi Adrianna I have just started Yoga 3 weeks ago and I feel it help me mentally and physically as I’am get older (49) male. The girls at have been driving to do it and my daughter too. I guess you are never to old to learn new things. Especially as a old footballer like myself thanks. I love your work������

  • Asalaamu alaikum Amina!

    I bumped into you at a conference a few months and I had no idea you had taken a social media break because I’m also on one lol (facebook and instagram, mainly… my nani/grandmother would be upset if I left whatsapp ^_^). I just wanted to say that it’s awesome to see you and hear you again. Thank you for this video. It’s so cool that you shared your lived experience and gathered different ahadith to show how we can still follow the footsteps of the Prophet (peace be upon him).

    I’m going to print out a transcript or put it in bullet points because it really breaks down all the anxiety regarding productivity I feel when I wake up.

    May Allah bless you in all the good you do.

  • but you havent proved anything without kevin durant.. warriors won for succesfully injured kawji leonard,down by 20 plus points then spurs got killed after intentionally planned kawhi sidelined

  • hi i am overweight and could not do this video without stopping 3 times today i did the whole lot thank you and one day i might find my abs

  • Hi Adriene, from 2:11, is it suitable to be done if you have acid reflux? (asking cause you have it too and you can maybe give some tips on it.)

  • How to go to sleep feeling fulfilled. Feeling fulfilled at work is easy, feeling fulfilled with life, like you have enjoyed the beauty of life of the day is harder. Which leads to watching TV/ YouTube before going to bed (which is what most sleep early video tells you not to).

  • Please upload the video on pyschology of accountability.
    Btw your videos are great inspiration for young muslims like me where you teach self betterment with following our deen properly. Jazakallahu khair for this type of great inspirational content for muslims.I can’t express my happiness after finding out your channel(such a great contemporary islamic principles based).
    May allah bless you in dunya and akhirah. Keep on bringing more such content. I am from India

  • The people who are giving this video a “Thumbs Down” are idiots to begin with! Steph Curry’s pregame warm-up would be a goal all young basketball players could learn from! He’s the CONSUMMATE PROFESSIONAL! You have to admire his skill and athleticism!

  • 2008年那年太难了,我在西藏当兵,还是新兵第一年,那年经历了太多的苦难,奥运会的时候在外面执勤没机会看,这会在抖音上刷到08年视频,然后才来看了完整的一遍!一开场我就泪崩了,因为那年我经历了国家困难时期的事情,中国经历千幸万苦走到这一步,吾辈们我们要好好珍惜啊!

  • Could you make a 30 day series that covers different group of muscles each day that is each 10-15 minutes maximum video length? I use your yoga to stretch out the body after a HIIT workout and it would be helpful to have more yoga videos that are within the 10-15 min range. Thanks!!

  • This video was great. It was gentle yet challenging. Usually ab workouts kill my lower back. I felt some pain in this workout in the lower back but mostly the challenge to the abs. I’m so glad I discovered this channel!

  • I feel the many people hating on this video saying it’s dumb cause they don’t understand why he does it cause it seems non of those drills make sense for him well they do they help him do allot and it teaches so many I’ve learned so much from this video Steph is amazing at what he does

  • Alhamdulillah! You always give off such a great vibe! I love watching your videos and your email reminders are so great too. Always put a smile on my face. May Allah continue to bless you! Ameen! <3

  • Hi Adriene. Is it possible to make a video for people with depression or are bipolar? You are the best. Love your videos. Very inspiring and easy to follow for a new yogi!

  • I’ve been wanting to try yoga for a long time. Too bad it took coved19 to give me the time. I’m grateful to have had this time to slow down and breath. I love your yoga techniques, humor and attitude. Thanks for being real!

  • I found this video to be the perfect pace for me. Other Sun salutation demonstrations have either been too fast for beginners ( like myself ) to follow and learn from, and/or, the breathing is just to intense for my cardio ability and I get too light headed. Thank you soo much for this video, I use it daily and it has improved so many things in my day to day life. ^_^
