Before heading to work each morning when you’re interning with Career Israel you can squeeze in an adrenaline-pumping activity for your mind, body, and soul to start your day in high gear and the right foot.
Tel Aviv has so much to offer early risers before clocking into work. Try one, or all, of the following and see which one suits you the best.
Running Along the Beach
Put on your shorts and running shoes and head for the ‘Tayelet’, the Tel Aviv Promenade, where you’ll be jogging along the beach and the water. It’s 14 km long and you can find joggers, bikers, roller skaters, and those just leisurely walking along the beach at all hours of the day. Take a short, or long, run, breath in the salty air, get your blood pumping while still making it to work on time.
Swimming in the Sea
Head to the beach, yes, the beach. The calm and mild Mediterranean water makes it easy to put on a bathing suit and slowly dive in. Let the water invigorate you and swim along the shore to work your arms and legs. Take nice long strokes while enjoying the mild waters, the sun, and the breeze. Just don’t forget to stay close to shore, pay attention to sign of rip currents, and swim only at a beach with a lifeguard.
Once you’ll start you’ll soon be part of the ‘it’ crowd. Those crazy enough to wake up at the crack of dawn, check the waves on a specialized app, and bike or walk to the beach. Get on your board and wait for that perfect wave. You’ll soon get the hang of it and even a quick hour in the morning will set you up for an energized day.
You can mediate in your apartment, but the setting of Park HaYarkon, the Azrieli rooftop, or a beach in Tel Aviv will be such a great backdrop for your affirmations while calming and clearing your head for the day.
Yoga with a Group
It’s been shown that a Yoga workout is great for your body and your soul. You can find small group gatherings, many by the beach and others at the gym, for a short yoga session, many of these free. Join a local gym or head outside and grab a mat and lululemon pants for those inspiring poses.
There’s nothing like starting your Israel program for young adults in Tel Aviv with a workout for your mind, body and soul. Now you are ready to take on the world.
