Let’s move more this May! Life has been different the past couple of months and with all this time at home it’s easy to end up doing, well, not much.
This month, I challenge you to MOVE.
Unmotivated? Try 5 x 5
If you’re struggling to start or maintain a regular workout routine, think small. Try this: just move for 5 minutes. Later in the day, do it again. If you do this a total of 5 times throughout the day, you’ve done a 25-minute workout!
Motion is lotion (for joints)
Even if you’re rocking your regular workouts, you may be feeling achy or creaky. Try adding 5 minutes of mobility work each day. Do it first thing in the morning, in the evening before bed, or add it before or after your workout. If you’re not exercising regularly, a daily dose of mobility work is a great place to start.
Need ideas? Try one of these mobility routines:
Not only is sunshine a mood-booster, it actually helps reduces stress hormones — and when you get out in the morning hours, it helps reset your body clock so you sleep better at night. You may even find it helps you have more overall energy.
Virtual Fitness Classes
At least until everything opens back up, I’m offering weekly online fitness classes each week for anyone, anywhere. Get the details on how to join and my current schedule.
