2 easy prepare recipes for using what you've got in your pantry.
This post discusses movement from a meditative or internal perspective. If you saw me doing this, you would think I was sleeping or meditating or both because the parts of my body you can see weren't moving. This type of movement exercise requires an open mind, body awareness, resilience, and trust or faith in self and a higher power for guidance/support. Read if you like, but skip otherwise. This blog is about offering practical options and resources, not causing stress or problems or anything else.
Social Distancing, COVID-19 - Why do a challenge at all with all the stress?
I get it. Everyone is worried about staying healthy and staying inside. Probably not the best time to do a challenge or invite others to join in. That's okay. You do what's best for you always.
And if you have time to visit here, please do.
For me, though, this challenge is my way of distracting myself, staying busy, and working on my business within my comfort zone. That's the why.
As for social distancing - very difficult for me since I spend most time at home and away from direct contact with people. The most contact I get is from grocery and package deliveries unless I deliberately seek people out. But it's harder for more social people who are used to lots of interaction. I can empathize and offer acceptance even if I can't relate.
Ground UP - Feet First, then everything else
Why start from the bottom up? Well, that's personal to my recovery journey. My physical health goal this year is to feel grounded and stable as I move. Not wobbly and worried about falling all the time.
If you decide to join me on this, you can start anywhere you like. I've included 2 specific exercises and 1 general exercise you can try here. Reflection is at the bottom of the post.
