Two right feet, or left, as the case might be:

What are the things you need to do within 30 minutes of waking up to ensure your day gets off on the right foot? What happened the last time you didn’t do one of these things?

Being left- handed may influence which foot is the right one to step onto getting out of bed!

If I don’t stop to do my exercises in bed before I step out, the day is set for disaster. A prolapse is a common condition for the older woman, but it can be managed. A distasteful subject, I can hear you say! When little Jack comes into the bedroom and suggests breakfast, now that he’s six, I can say, ‘I need to do my ‘tummy exercises’ before I get up.’ This he understands and patiently waits.

When the grandchildren were younger, I’d rush from bed at the first squeak and pay the price later. Pain rushing to the nether regions would alter my whole demeanor. Grumpiness is not a quality grandchildren need to remember. So, exercise it is, at the beginning of the day, the end and once in between, if given the opportunity. Sitting in a movie or being driven in a car are both perfect opportunities for these subterranean activities.
