I have had 4 or 5 conversations with clients this week that all revolved around us talking about how great it is that adding in regular very simple movement into your life can make a profound difference in how your body feels. As I noticed this I thought maybe it’s something I should write about this week, because maybe you need to be reminded of this idea…simple works!
- Do you find yourself not getting movement time in because you overthink what you need to do?
- Do you tell yourself that if you can’t squeeze in a 30 or 50 minute class today that you just won’t be able to “exercise” today?
I can tell you for myself and for all the clients I see who are successful at using movement as a health tool in their life…. they don’t believe this myth!
Adding in a 10 minute daily walk, 5 minutes of stretching at the beginning of your day or even just wearing your toe separators for 15 minutes a day can effect how your whole body feels! Getting regular classes and sessions in will absolutely help you feel better in your body, but so will 3 minutes of counter push ups when you are making dinner or practicing your one leg balance while you brush your teeth.
Take a little time today to start thinking about how you can add more movement into your life and when you start doing it…appreciate how effective it can be!
Adding in small amounts of movement throughout your day can seem so trivial and so simple, which is why I think most people don’t do it! Don’t believe that just because something is not excruciating hard for you that it won’t make a difference!
If you’re coming into the studio you’ve probably “caught me” at some time sneaking in a little movement time in between clients! A few of my favorite ways to add movement in through out my day are hanging, standing on our rock mat behind the front desk when waiting for clients and counter push-ups!
