Movement and Mood

I don’t typically share too much personal stuff online but I  wanted to share this.   This morning I woke up feeling off, just not myself.  Not sure if it was anxiety, frustration or overwhelm  or a combination of all three.   At this point I decided to sit, relax and breathe. I allowed myself to feel all the feels.

 

I made myself a nice breakfast, I ate slowly and acknowledged all  my senses.  I gave myself some grace and about 2 hours later I moved my body in a restorative way.  No crazy exercises just a gentle Pilates flow and it helped a lot.

There have been many studies showing that movement helps to improve moods.  That saying movement heals definitely helped me today.

How has movement helped you?

I will share the flow in a few days on my You Tube channel so you will have it for when you are having one of those days.

Be well.

 

It Adds Up

I know how busy life gets and sometimes we don’t have an hour or even thirty minutes to squeeze in some movement.    So, here is a short routine you can follow along with on my you tube channel.
