Let’s do a compete reframe with movement & exercise.
This is especially needed if you find yourself struggling with…
An all-or-nothing mentality.
In these cases, there is a fundamental lack of *true* respect for our bodies, and we’re MUCH too focused on the surface level bullshit.
No judgment, btw, as I’ve been sitting squarely in each category!🙋🏻♀️
Consider the worst case scenario with your body—[this has to be something that would severely limit your ability to move to the extent you’re capable of today].
Sounds dark, but stay with me!🙃
For me, I’ve always feared becoming paralyzed and not having the ability to use my legs.
Whenever I find myself wanting to take the escalator, elevator, a short uber ride, or go to the gym, I imagine what it would feel like to *NOT* have the privilege of movement.
Because that’s exactly what it is: a privilege.
This doesn’t mean you that you go overboard with excessive exercise either, because that’s demonstrating a lack of respect for your body, too.
Start viewing your body as a gift for YOU to live this beautiful life in rather than a greeting card for others to look at & watch your relationship with exercise transform.
How are you respecting your body with movement today?
