3 reasons to Move





Feeling a bit blah? Stressed out? Can't seem to get a good night's sleep? In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, I'm sharing tips. I hope these three reminders motivate you to get moving!



When you’re feeling blah: I wrote recently about how movement is one of my favorite ways to beat the BLAH. Physical movement releases endorphins, the "feel-good" hormones, so go for that walk or dance to your favorite song when you feel like you need to shake away the gray.



When you’re stressed: Intentional movement is an excellent way to reduce stress, can help you clear your mind, and enhances cognitive function. I find the rhythmic movement of walking or running helps sharpen my focus and boosts creativity.



When you’re tired and having trouble sleeping: Including regular exercise in your routine has been shown to improve sleep quality. Aim for 30 minutes daily, and not too close to bedtime.



JOURNAL PROMPT: Reflect on your relationship with movement and its impact on your well-being. Consider the times when you've felt down, stressed, or restless. How has incorporating physical activity into your routine helped you navigate these emotions? Take a moment to jot down your thoughts and experiences. Then, think about one small step you can take today to add more movement into your life, whether it's a short walk, a stretch session, or a dance break. How do you feel after engaging in this activity? Use this reflection as inspiration to prioritize movement as a tool for enhancing your overall wellness.
