We have all experienced these days at some time or another. I am going to keep this short and sweet.
I go for a walk. Sunshine and fresh air and appreciating the wonders of creation.
2. Turn up the volume and dance. Music will lift your mood.
3. Write it out. Journaling is a great way to work through issues or problems and journaling allows you to be fully present and aware of how you are feeling. Never underestimate the power of the pen.:)
4. Exercise, you knew this would be one of my coping strategies. The saying “movement is medicine” resonates with me and I have proven it to work and lift my mood.
5. I will typically call my mom. You are never too old to need your mom. 🙂
What do you do when you are having a bad day? Please share in the comments.
The ability to kneel or sit on the floor and get back up is one of the best ways to preserve our mobility and predict our overall fitness and longevity.
This simple act may not seem like much but, when you stop and think about it, our ability to be able to control our bodies and the strength it takes to “pick ourselves up” off the floor is priceless.
This is particularly important as we get older. This simple act works every muscle in our bodies and it works our balance, core strength, upper body strength, leg strength, flexibility, coordination, mobility and stability.
I find this movement will also reveal any strength weaknesses we may have.
Along with tailored exercises to help address these weaknesses, the repeated act of moving from the ground up will help to restore the strength.
As babies we learned to crawl before we could walk and the ground helped with that, the ground as resistance.
If this is a challenge for you, start slow and work your way up. Use a sturdy object as support to help you get stronger.
Everyone needs a coach, a motivator , a cheerleader, someone to be accountable to. Let me be YOURS!
Each person comes to me with a unique “story” and movement background. No two bodies are alike, and will not be doing the same workout. Each person has different goals and movement patterns, so the workouts are tailored to each person.
I take the time to plan (write out) each and every session for my clients, but, I can also change the routine depending on how your body is feeling that day. Everyday the body asks for different things and it is important to tune in and listen.
My training style is a mind and body experience. You will work in the sessions, but you will also have fun.
Feel free to reach out to me by filling out the consultation on my website. I look forward to working with you.
I am often told by my clients that my teaching style is unique and in the sessions/classes they feel encouraged, strong and capable in doing the exercises. They never feel like they can’t do a particular move or exercise sequence and they always feel better after class.
My goal as an instructor is to “meet” each and every client where they are physically at that given moment.
Every exercise I teach, starts from the “base”, where we start slow and layer on “moves”.
By doing this I am giving each person options in class. I am a firm believer in listening to your body.
Remember, you are strong, your body is amazing and I applaud you all always.
Do you ever have those moments when you think and say to yourself, what’s the point? I am too old for this, or I am not good enough, I will never get back to this point or I will never be able to accomplish “that” or be at that level.
I am sure you have been there, I know I have. Self doubt , self sabotage, imposter syndrome, call it whatever you like.
The best way to get over this, I have found is first acknowledging it, then shifting my mindset. Focusing on taking “it” one step at a time. Slowly but surely chipping away at the task/challenge.
IT, is possible, once we move out of our own way. Remember, it is always worth it. Believe you can and you will.
