One thing to make moving often a habit: Reconnect with your body.
There is no easy way to tell people (particularly online) how to reconnect with your body. Simple practices like daily walks, meditation, moving in nature, and noticing how you feel are great ways to start.
I also recommend looking into developmental movement patterns as a foundation for restorative movement. It’s training that sheds bad habits and layers of useless beliefs about the body.
My own journey toward reconnection came as a result of a $11,000 certification program. It was life changing and incredible. I’m guessing you don’t have $11,000 to go have that same kind of experience (although if you do, it’s totally worth it!).
After trying to hone in on what I could best recommend for my readers that would leave them the biggest impact on their health in terms of movement, exercise, and fitness I kept coming up blank.
So I had to create the solution.
I wanted something that was easy to follow along and that would build foundational habits. I wanted something that worked to restore movement patterns, improve alignment and posture, and provide a rich landscape that honored the whole person – body, mind, and spirit.
At its core I wanted something that would reconnect you with your body.
Because when you reconnect you:
- Move with more ease and efficiency. This means less pain, tension, and chance of injury.
- Value your body for more than what it looks like. You discover your potential as a breathing, feeling, expressive human being who communicates more through movement than words.
- Let go of unhealthy practices.
- Find ways to incorporate movement into your daily life and combat the dangerous issues that come from poor posture and sedentary living.
- Learn to hold yourself with confidence, beauty, and clarity. You show your true, authentic self with power and compassion.
I spent more than a decade putting the pieces together and creating a program that will help you with all of these things. (And this program won’t require any sort of student loan to get started, either! In fact, you can start for FREE.)
What I recommend: The Inside Out Program
This program is the answer to the “move often” equation. It’s a simple, doable, and practical six-week experience that will transform your body and your habits for the rest of your life.
Because I know life is busy, I’ve worked to make the lessons simple and accessible. The program consists of video lessons and one-of-a-kind workouts that you can watch and do on your own time. If you can dedicate 15 – 45 minutes a day for six weeks you’ll be amazed at how much more confident, alive, and ready you will be to take on the world with your body.
Listen, I know how hard it can be to change habits. And movement habits can be the hardest to break. Not because they are impossible to change, but because most people don’t know how to change.
I’ll give you a hint: Doing a hundred crunches isn’t the way.
The Inside Out program was created it with you in mind. I asked myself, “If there was one thing I could recommend that would have the biggest change in people’s lives for their health… what would it be?”
This program is my answer. I hope you’ll take a look and give it a try. For better health. For better connection. For a better life.
