There is an old mentality about exercise that’s reflected in common sayings you’ve probably heard or spoken yourself, like:
“No pain, no gain.”
“Whip yourself into shape.”
It’s the idea that exercise is something you have to do, or that it’s even a form of punishment for overeating.
But what if exercising and moving your body could be easy and fun, and it didn’t even require a ton of your time?
The truth about movement is that movement is life.
As we move through 2019, check in with yourself by considering the physical spaces around you. Are you feeling disorganized, cluttered, or cramped?
One way to know for sure if the state of a physical space is serving you or not is to ask yourself, “If my [insert name of someone you care about] could see this space, would they think it was organized and clean?”
Trying to see the space through another person’s eyes can help reveal if you may have some work to do with organizing and tidying things up 🙂

- Is that loss of passion affecting other areas of…
Your life today is essentially the sum of your habits.
How in shape or out of shape you are? Is a result of your habits.
How happy or unhappy you are? Is a result of your habits.
How successful or unsuccessful you are? Is a result of your habits.
What you repeatedly do (i.e. what you spend time thinking about and doing each day) ultimately forms the person you are, and the results you currently see in every area of your life.

With the changing of each season we find new reasons to up level our health and fitness.
At the beginning of the New Year many people want to shed the winter holiday pounds and get back on their best healthy habits.

And so on…
So many of my clients talk about wanting to shift their mindset about fitness from a “no-pain-no-gain”…
My all-time favorite fun-fitness method is mindful-movement, or in other words, “conscious dance”.

There’s nothing, in my mind, that’s more fun and freeing, and life giving than even 5-minutes of dancing!

As I dive head-on into my 40’s I notice now more than ever the importance of my natural life-style and how it’s made a BIG difference over the years.
