Since past times, humans have moved from place to place, whether to run away from bad weather, to find more food or simply to discover other places.
Our body is keen on movement and, often, a good level of movement increases our energy, instead of reducing it.
If physically we are mostly water, if we do not move, our water will stagnate and create various issues in the medium term.
However, the challenge of modern life is precisely to have enough movement in our daily lives, to generate energy and through that energy, achieve our goals and dreams.
I would say that, the more we move in a conscious way, the more healthy we get.
But how to do that?
In my opinion, a healthy body movement is a conscious movement and we can do this in many different ways, but always considering these three aspects:
- Breath: water has oxygen, so try to be conscious of the breathing when exercising or even in your daily routines. A good breath will bring the oxygen to your body and just through that you will feel more energetic.
- Rhythm: are you being too quick, too slow or is your rhythm ok with your day? You can practice exercises that brings you the rhythm that is best suited for you, but first you need to be conscious of the rhythm you have at the moment. Try to practice quick and slow movements, since both will allow you to be better prepared when life rushes or when it is quieter.
- Repetition: repetition of simple exercises is often more proficient than always trying to do new exercises. This because is through repetition we can see if something changed compared with the previous day. Breathing, sleeping, the seasons… repetition is constantly in our lives, but we tend to dislike it. Through exercises, we can practice the art of enjoying repetition and find the differences in the same situations in life. We start to observe more the tiny details, from one day to the next and appreciation often gives us more energy.
So, I would suggest you practice exercise taking into consideration these three points (being conscious of them), so that you can find for yourself the movements that best fit you in the different times of your life.
