Day 21 Create A Life You Love: Move Your Body

Move Your Body

We only get one body at least until science offers us other options.  Therefore, it is imperative to take care of this one precious body with which we were born.  One way to contribute to good health is to move your body.  There is always something that we can do each day to put our body in motion and give it the exercise that it needs and craves.  I offer these workout challenges to provide you with some ideas on what you can do in limited time with limited equipment.

High Plank Hop Across

The plank is one of the best overall exercises we can do to keep our muscles in shape, especially our core.  Watch the video below and then follow along.  If you are a beginner, instead of hopping across, simply step side to side.  If you are an advanced exerciser, speed up the pace to give yourself more of a challenge.  Get your plank on and move your body.

Core strengthening & fancy footwork! Get after it! 😀💪🏻

Day 7 Intentional Living: Body Scan of Appreciation

Body Scan of Appreciation

When is the last time you said thank you to your body?  I invite you to do a body scan of appreciation.  How do you do it?  Well, start at your toes, move to your feet then up your legs to your hips move on to your waist, fingers, hands and arms and say thank you.  From there go to your rib cage, back, chest, and shoulders and once again, say thank you.  Then move up your neck, face, and to the top of your head and appreciate every inch of you.  Oh, and then there is the 60,000 miles of blood vessels that run throughout your body, the 115,200 times a day your heart beats, the 23,040 breaths you take each day, and the 37.2 trillion cells that compose your body.  This amazing infrastructure works tirelessly for you each day with beautiful collaboration and communication.  And, have you ever thought about how you don’t have to do anything for all these systems to operate as they are supposed to on your behalf?

Take Care of Yourself

Since your body works so hard for you, the least you can do is take good care of yourself.  Be mindful of your nutrition.   Get the exercise and sleep that you need for your body to function efficiently.  And, think good thoughts.  You design your life by the way you think.  If you think good thoughts you will have good feelings.  I suggest a monthly body scan of appreciation.  Do it.
