I love to move my body. When I exercise regularly, I’m a more balanced and level headed human being. When I sweat daily, I feel more mentally and emotionally sound. When I’m in motion, I feel more like myself.
But I get in a rut sometimes, and when I do, it can be hard to get started again. I always remind myself of Newton’s Law of Motion:
An object at rest remains at rest, unless acted upon by an external force. Similarly, an object in motion will stay in motion, unless acted upon by an outside force.
So when I’m not in motion, I know that it will take an extra effort to get up and at it again. For me, there are dozens of ways I love to move my body.
Here are some of my favorites:
- Walk the dog
- Hula hoop
- Play tennis
- Bike ride
- Jump rope
When I’m feeling low, it always helps to reach out to a friend and schedule a time to move together. What are some of your favorite ways to move?
