#5 - Brain Hacks. Movement is more than just exercise; it's a fundamental part of feeling truly at home in our bodies. Think of movement as the door that allows us to enter and connect with ourselves on a deeper level. Renowned neurologist Jerome Lubbe once said, "Movement is the single greatest resource in our human experience." It not only activates our brains but also informs, integrates, and sustains every aspect of our being.


In our fast-paced lives, we often find ourselves constantly on the go, moving from one activity to another without much thought. However, I invite you to take a moment and consider the power of intentional movement. By consciously engaging with our bodies, we can cultivate a greater awareness of ourselves.


Now, I understand that this may seem challenging for some, depending on our unique body stories and experiences. But trust me when I say that it's worth it. Choose to move in a way that feels good to you, without judgment or comparison. Remember, there's no right or wrong here; it's simply about embracing the opportunity to be fully alive in your body. For today, I encourage you to take a moment and engage in a movement that resonates with you. Pay attention to the sensations that arise in your body – notice any changes in temperature, heart rate, breathing, flexibility, or emotions. And once you're done, observe how your body feels different from before.


Here are a few suggestions to get you started:


1. Ask yourself, "How do I like to move?" Then, simply go and do it.


2. Dance freely, letting the music guide you. You can do this in the privacy of your own space.


3. Try practicing yoga. YouTube offers a wealth of resources, such as Yoga with Adrianne (you might enjoy this favorite: [link]).


4. Stand up with your arms by your side. Begin twisting gently from the waist, first to the right, then to the left. Let your arms swing naturally as you pivot. Gradually increase the range of motion and continue for a few minutes until you feel satisfied.


5. Shake your entire body, allowing any tension or stress to release. Remember, by embracing intentional movement and stillness, you can unlock a deeper connection with yourself. Take this opportunity to nurture your body and tap into its incredible wisdom. So, open the door and let movement guide you on a journey of self-discovery and self-care.
