Why The 4 Minute Morning?

Because you have this phenomenal body.

You As a Machine.

You pretty much ignore your body and expect it to function at a high level until it starts to shut down and no longer does.

And when that happens you will spend so much time (doctor visits, researching, trying different   remedies) trying to figure out why your body is quitting on you.

I am speaking from experience.  Let’s keep it working.  Prime it every morning.  A little time invested now will save a lot of unpleasant time down the road.

Who wants to spend time in the doctor’s office?

There are so many unnecessary chronic aches and pains.

What I want to teach you is how you can maintain your physical health in a very short period of time.

Exercise doesn’t have to be something you dread nor should it be something you “squeeze” into your day.  It is a priority.  A necessity.  Required.

It is something you want to do for YOU and your loved ones.

  1. Hi there- I couldn’t figure out how to comment on your post on the blood type diet but has it helped you? I have been sick for years and I’m o positive non secretor vegetarian

    1. Hi k.briann,
      I’ve not been following ER4YT for a few years now. I ended up taking the ALCAT test to try to narrow down my personal needs. I also started a sister site called You As A Cook to focus food related information there. This is one of the intro posts I wrote to explain where I was at that time. http://youasacook.com/start-here/how-to-eat/
      Still more time has passed since initiating that site, and I haven’t updated it, frankly, been too busy making real food and exploring new and ancient material.
      There’s no reason for us to be sick for years. Sometimes we can get so caught up in following a method that’s not working, but we persist because we feel like “surely, I’m just not doing it properly, or I need to do more of it…”.
      The ALCAT test was super helpful for me to realize how unvaried my presumably varied diet was. I am now studying herbalism which is opening up so many plants as food that we commonly pass over as weeds or inedible…there is so much at our finger tips for restoring health that doesn’t come pre-packaged.

      1. thanks that is helpful. I tried the alcat and my immunity prevented it from showing any sensitivities! I’m so conflicted as to whether or not I should try the blood type diet. I have been vegan for about 5 years . It definitely makes sense so maybe I will have to give in and try a little meat again.

      2. That’s interesting.
        There are a lot of successful vegetarians out there. Maybe just start with incorporating homemade bone broth a couple times a week?
        I’ve just started studying the life work of Juliette de Baïracli Levy, she was an herbalist, promoted raising children naturally, pioneered holistic veterinary medicine through plants and was vegetarian, lived 98 years. Comments on the importance of albumin for the vegetarian. You can watch a documentary about her here <a href="http://here” target=”_blank”>here
        and look up the books she wrote.

  2. Definitive, aren’t you? 🙂 I think I’ll start again from the beginning of week two. I know why I fell off too – winter. It is cold and dark in the morning, I can barely drag myself out of bed, and that fact that I even make it to work is something of a miracle. I’m not very good at mornings and I think I was being overly ambitious in trying to add something to them.

    So I think I’m going to try doing these at around 7 pm. Is there any reason that that’s a really bad idea? I just think it’s more likely to happen that way and I figure later in the day is better than never, no?

    1. I know! AND I used to think I was short on opinion.
      Sounds great! Do it when you can. Get your body used to it. Your body will love you for it. Just keep the option of doing it first thing in the morning at the back of your mind. The morning routine may gradually grow on you.
      I am working on a video to show a series of stretches that I do in bed first thing in the morning, which might be useful for you. I am so slow to wake up or move first thing in the morning- doing these bed stretches makes a huge difference.
      Thanks for the update!

    1. My quick answer would be to say, to start off from where you left off. But then, again, part of what we’re trying to do is create a daily habit. You fell off for a reason. Maybe you got to a point where you were biting off more than you could chew? Maybe it would be wise to start off again from the beginning and keep going back to square one until you make it stick. But take a moment to listen to your own internal dialogue and figure out why you fell off and if you think that going back to the beginning is the right choice.
      I should also point out that it’s not so much about getting to the final progression, you may choose to repeat Week 2 forever.

      Let me know what you choose to do.
