Be Well in May: Get Active

resilient year May 01, 2018

Last month's theme aimed at simplifying your obligations and space so that you can give more time and space toward healthy habits that nourish your body, mind, and heart. This month, you can take inspiration from nature and begin growing some new, healthy habits. 

The focus this month is to incorporate more movement in your day that you enjoy and that nourishes your body, mind, and heart. With this in mind, the intention this month is: 

Get Active

Here are three strategies to focus on:

Get Rhythmic

  • Why: Rhythmic movements like dance, qigong, drumming, running, swimming, and cycling can help you reduce stress and rebalance your nervous system. 
  • Specific action: Choose one of the Resilient Movement Plans and incorporate a rhythmic activity into your plan. 

Mix It Up

  • Why: If you're bored with your exercise routine, then you're less likely to stick with it. Alternatively, if you aren't exercising because you "don't like to," then you likely haven't explored enough options. 
  • Specific Action: Try two new activities this month. The activities don't have to be considered usual "workouts," but they should get your body moving. For example, why not try geocaching, LARPing (live-action role playing), or join a rec league (you can rekindle your love of kickball!). Your options are truly endless. Have fun!

Pick one or both of the above strategies to focus on this month. Use the comment section below to share your progress, questions, and tips!
