Start a Movement

We all know that exercise is a good thing, right? And oftentimes when we think of exercise we think about the gym, or something on the strenuous side, though what about just a little more motion? Instead of beating ourselves up for not exercising on a consistent basis (speaking for myself here), what if we made a pledge to start by doing a few things throughout the day to get our bodies moving? Instead of finding a parking space right up front, maybe park a little farther out. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, and so on. If these aren’t doable for you, then what about taking a moment here and there to stretch? I know that I really have to stay conscious of giving myself a break from the computer throughout the day. If I don’t my body definitely suffers and I end the day in hunch over knots (fun!).

This week’s forecast states that now is the time to instill some good body moving habits. Whether you take on a new exercise plan, increase your current method of exercise, or get moving after a period of inactivity, just do whatever feels enjoyable and don’t overdo. Remember, this is for your well-being and what feels right for you. This is not about competition, or exercising because the media says you have to look a certain way. It’s all about you feeling better being you.

With Love.

From Over There: 5.25.14 Weekly Forecast
This is a time for more physical activity. Increasing activity through movement helps calm the overactive mind. Movement releases tension that accumulates when the body is stagnant and the mind is active. It does not matter the method of movement one chooses. It is simply beneficial that one move.

Featured Question:
Q: Is this need to calm the mind through movement particularly important this week? If so, why?
A. The energy of all things is cyclical and ebbs and flows. Now is a time of flow. This energy of flow is gentle in its current, yet it is useful in that it allows one to balance the mind with the increased physical activity in a subtle, less challenging way. This makes an easier transition into forming new habits. A consistent habit of using movement to calm the mind brings balance to energetic flow and deters the cycle of unbridled activity followed by exhaustion. Due to the gentle nature of this energetic flow, it is a useful period to create the habits that support this balance. Doing so with lead to an overall more peaceful existence.
