Movement


Maybe you're tired, or feeling defeated, and you'd rather sit on the couch than roll out your yoga mat.

I encourage you to try a little movement, despite the discomfort.


Five minutes. Maybe ten. Set yourself a small enough goal that it's really hard to make an excuse not to move.

Take a walk around the block. Do ten pushups and ten situps in your living room. Three sun salutations.

Do only the yoga poses that feel good, the ones your body is calling out for, and for now, skip the rest. Release any feeling of guilt, any notion of, 'I could do better,' or, 'I'm not good enough.'


It may not feel fun to get started, but I'd guess that afterwards you feel grateful you made time for keeping your vital energy moving.

Find a little movement that works for you in your day. See how you feel.

Namaste.

PS, as a side note, this post is as much for me as it is for you... so please remember, you're not alone on the days when you might struggle to make time for movement. And if you happen to be having a sh*tty day, this is another great post to check out.
