…for a walk. If you’re reading this, you’re obviously taking a break. So go ahead. Get up and walk around. Even if it’s just for a minute. The blood flow and change of scene will do you good.
Whatever you’re doing right now, suck it in. You heard me, pull in that core. Now hold it. Hold it. Hold it. Release. Excellent work!
Now, I will hypnotize you…. Imagine the sound of your cell phone in the distance. Your ring tone, your text ding, your email bong, your game trill. On the count of three, every time you here your cell phone you will pull in that core!
One, two, three. I was never here….
Yes, it’s harder. No, you won’t be able to go as far. Short term, you’re workout may be shorter. But long term? Whoa, baby. Soon you might even be able to yell…”I’m moving here, get the heck out of my way!”
Also known as corpse pose, it reduces blood pressure, anxiety and insomnia, receives stress, and reconnects you with your breath. And it’s so simple! Just lay on the floor, let your arms and legs fall open, let your belly soften, and inhale deeply, noticing each breath. Too good to be true? Try it!
It is never too late to start choosing nutritious foods, to allow yourself some downtime or a fun hobby, to start moving your body (even if it’s from a chair). It is never too late to start feeling healthier.
Studies show that those who have partners who are active are 85% more likely to be active too. I’d suggest getting your partner exercising, then see if it rubs off 😉
