Mindful movement begins with listening to your body. Your body will tell you when it’s ready to be pushed a little harder or ready to go a little deeper. It will also tell you when it needs a break. In today’s society, we have this “Go Hard or Go Home” mentality that pressures us to push our bodies further and quicker than we should, leaving us feeling exhausted, depleted and susceptible to injury.
When you begin listening to your body and bringing more awareness to your movement, you will be amazed at what can happen.
I encourage you to start approaching your movement with grace. The reason I say this is because many times we want to push our bodies past the point of where it is comfortable going because we get impatient with our progress. You can’t force your body to do something it is not ready for. Those deep layers of fascia take time to increase, remold and heal.
Mindful movement doesn’t just apply to your workouts. By bringing awareness to how you are sitting throughout your day, carrying your children or simply standing, you can really start to see and feel a change happening in your body.
This week, I challenge you to stop a few times throughout your day and ask yourself these questions:
When you are mindful of how you are standing, sitting and carrying your little ones, you will see incredible change and can begin to feel amazing.
Here are two incredible exercises to help get you on the road to feeling your best!
