A Body in Motion, A Body at Rest

Geez!! Anyone else feeling really really tired, exhausted and unmotivated?! I have been for awhile, and I can't even blame covid although it certainly hasn't helped. I was talking with a coworker about how my bestie has all this energy and I just can't seem to hang anymore BUT years ago you couldn't stop me; I was always on the go.

And that's when she said it: "A body in motion stays in motion and a body at rest stays at rest." 🤯 Mind blown, lol...

Like, how could I have forgotten such a simple concept?! I can admit things in life have caused me to become idle or complacent, to be okay with being in the background, but it's so not good for our physical or mental. Besides the lack of or consistency of doing nothing in itself is pretty depressing! You never really see how it's all connected.

So today I was reminded about the importance of moving my body, but in deeper thought I remembered how absolutely good it is for us. The fresh air, the release of happy hormones, the different feelings we experience by not only moving but being surrounded by people with good energy!

Let this serve as your daily reminder to give yourself all the amazing things it deserves. Including a motivated body! One that's not filled with aches and pains because it's gotten so used to rest! Rest and self care of course are super important but it's all about balance.

What do you do to keep your body moving? Share your tips with me cause it's time for this girl to make some changes.️ ❤️
