“We don’t stop playing because we grow ; We grow old because we stop playing.”
– George Bernard Shaw.
When was the last time you actually “Played’?
Played a game, just for fun?
Played in the park or at the beach?
Before I proceed I challenge you this week to go to a park, playground or the beach and embrace your inner child.
- Climb a tree
- Play on the monkey bars
- Climb a big ass rock
- Practise flips on the sand
We can all afford to spend more time moving our body, most of us spend a lot of time sitting down these days. Sitting is referred to as the new smoking. If that doesn’t ring alarm bells I can’t help you.
If it struck a nerve read on with me.
We all fall into the trap of planning to do great things and then never following through with them.
- Start doing yoga
- Train more
- Eat better
Funny that we always need a new week, new month or a new year to start.
What ever device you are reading this on head to our ‘FREE STUFF” tab and join in on our movement tutorials, You need no equipment.
Start your journey to better movement right now.
Make a change, step outside your comfort zone.
You don’t want to be that guy or girl that goes to pick up their kids and pulls a hammy or slips a disk. Just because your age increases doesn’t mean you health should decline.
Movement is medicine, start taking double doses!
Training vs Playing
This is simply a mindset.
When you turn up to “train” its hard to always be motivated, the same workout, same scenery and chances are same people.
Switch up that perspective, Play with movement to warm up, change your workout up with some more playful exercises.
It’s not enough to just rock up and “make it through” your 45 minute sweat out all the baddness session, you need to enjoy what you are doing. Otherwise eventually you will stop showing up.
Play games, get your heart rate up with a smile on your face
Do cartwheels, handstands, roll on the floor, swing or hang from bars.
No more excuses, Learn and do. Then teach.
You are the only person in your way stopping you from moving more, playing more and creating a better body to live in!
Peace and Love
