26 Aug THIS WEEK: MIND YOUR MOVEMENT
Just like the breath is important to life, so is movement. Moving is good for our health and happiness, especially when we move in a way that feels good to us. The thing about movement is that we often don’t really realize how important it is until we can’t move well anymore. Ever sprain your ankle or pinch a nerve in your neck or back? Then you get the idea. And we don’t you to wait until it’s too hard for you to move. We want you to MIND YOUR MOVEMENT this week and for many weeks to come. The human body was designed to move; yet we spend most of our waking hours sitting and several more hours lying flat while we sleep. But it wasn’t always this way. There were eras of human history where we moved constantly. When we move, we sleep better and feel better. When we move, we have more energy, strengthen our immune system, and improve our circulation. So discover what kind of movement is best of you, whether it’s dance, stretching, running, yoga, or something else entirely. And as you move this week, notice not just what you’re doing, but how it makes you feel. How does the movement you’re doing contribute to the balanced life that you want? This week, give up the sitting and staring at screens as much as possible and make a move. Minding your movement matters.
