Envision that morning…the morning that you wake up, flutter your eyes to the glorious daylight, roll over onto your back and take a deep breath, a breath of gratitude for another day. Then you roll your body out of bed, sit up straight, look out the window and feel the energy flowing up and down your spine – serving your brain with a fresh hit of oxygenated blood. While sitting on the edge of your bed, you stretch your arms up above you, feeling the light pop and snap of your spine moulding into place. You take another deep breath and realize that today, is a GOOD day.
Was this your morning today? Maybe yesterday or earlier this week?
Chances are this type of morning may have been quite some time ago for you. And you’re not alone in this factor.
The average adult wakes up each morning feeling stiff, sore and cranky. But the exciting news is, it doesn’t have to be this way.
Now close your eyes, take a deep breath and envision how your life would be altered if the above mentioned scenario were actually your every morning. If you woke up feeling fluid, free and grateful – how would that affect your day? How would your mental disposition shift? How would your interactions with people be different? Take another deep, deep breath and repeat after me:
– I ACCEPT MY BODY AS IT IS TODAY.
I AM READY TO PARTICIPATE IN DAILY MOVEMENT.
I AM WILLING TO FEEL FLUID IN MY BODY. –
Now, let’s talk about fluidity. Your inflammation, soreness and inflexibility are all due to the foods you put in your body, and the daily movements you take. Every single day!
Consider these two statements. One has a much more negative connotation than the other.
This is because EXERCISE has been linked to having the IDEAL BODY. Yes, losing body fat, fitting in your jeans easier and gaining muscular strength are all valuable components to a healthy life. However, today I want you to create some AWARENESS around the value in simply MOVING your body. This doesn’t mean going for a 10km run after a 9 hour work day, or sweating your butt off at the gym at 5:30am. This means allowing your blood and energy to have optimal movement throughout your body.
You are made up of energy. Your body can be broken down into molecules and atoms that come together to create a solid mass that you have spent hours and days agonizing over and calling your own.
But the truth is, we are simply energy. And energy needs to flow. In order to feel fluid in your body, you need to increase the ability of the energy to flow. Taking yourself to a cardio class or drop-in volleyball game are wonderful ways to increase this energy flow. Walking up the stairs at work 5 times a day is also a great way. And how about getting down on the floor and playing with your neighbours new little puppy? Yup, that increases energy flow too!
Here are a handful of fluid actions that you can do every single day. Read them over and think to yourself;
What movements am I already doing that allow my energy to flow?
Write down 7 Daily Movements that you are willing to commit to doing this week. Whether you do them all each day, or do one per day this week – it’s up to YOU! The main thing to understand is that by moving your body, you increase your energy flow. This leads to a regular release of “happy hormones”, more mental stimulation, deeper fulfillment in your career and ease of physical symptoms like stiffness and soreness. All in all, bringing you one step closer to waking up each morning feeling rested, restored and grateful.
Share your intentions by EMAILING ME the 7 Daily Movements you are committed to this week and I’ll send you a friendly reminder halfway through the week to keep you on track. These are simple changes that are definitely do-able, but sometimes we just need a supportive and caring nudge. Together we can create daily patterns that allow your body to move, flow and flourish – enabling you to be one step closer to your optimal health.
Yours in Health, Happiness & Pure Vitality,
