A few days ago, I shared a blog post with a plan to start out your New Years Routine with gentle stretching each and every day. How is it going? If you missed it, it is never to late to get started! You can check it out here, (Slow and Steady Wins the Race)
If you need some help with ideas for stretches, you can check out this Basic Stretch Routine video I made a few months ago. It's a four minute (nice and easy) stretch session and I walk you through the entire routine. You may also want to try my Seated Flexibility Video for another basic stretch routine to help you get moving.
In my Slow and Steady Wins the Race post, I mentioned to you that these activities would be building upon one another. While you continue to do your daily morning stretch, we will be building on the foundation to create new habits and guilt free fitness for your lifestyle to last the whole year through.
You can chosen to play music or use no music at all and you can be anywhere! Just pick up your toddler, grab your spouse, or even give yourself a hug and go to it.
DANCE! It doesn't matter if you are in the living room, the kitchen, the hallway! Do a little shake, the twist, the mashed potato, the monkey, it's all OK, as long as you have FUN. That's the only rule with this activity: Be safe and have FUN!
Please, do this at least once every day . Again, just like we talked about with the morning stretch activity, you can determine the amount of time. Whatever you decide, increase the duration each day for the remainder of the week.
Add this to your Task Log. If you are not on my mailing list or if you didn't get the log, just fill out the opt in box to the right and I'll send it to you immediately.
Note how you feel.
Be aware of your smile, your mood, your heart rate, your connection to the people you love. Post a comment, ask me a question, send me an email if you need help. I'm here to support you in creating The Happy Factor and Guilt Free Fitness into your life!
