Physical movement will change our breathing patterns, oxygen intake, hormone levels, physiology, chemistry, and our mind. When we are in a funk, it is helpful to take action, even if it is small. Small things add up, compile, stack, compound, and quickly turn into big things. A brisk walk, an act of service, a few minutes in the sunlight-ANY action instantly alters our state of beingness.
Take a walk. Start moving. Ride a bike. Stretch. Drop down to the ground and do 5 or 10 push-ups. Anything is better than nothing. Don’t think about it. Just do it. Do it now.
There is a mind/body connection that is so real. Move the body, and the mind will follow suite. A body in motion stays in motion. Movement shifts our attention and focus from the mind to the body, allowing for a reprieve from the constant thinking activities of the monkey mind. MOVEMENT IS MEDITATION. Many times, solutions to problems are discovered in this fashion. The mind, left alone, tends to take over everything, many times destroying us from the inside out!
MOVEMENT IS A MEDITATION.
For SO many, yoga has become a meditative practice that is far more useful than sitting around trying to quiet the one thing that is incessant, relentless, and even torturous: THE MIND.
Today I will remember the importance of the mind/body connection. I will keep moving, even if it is only a little. I will keep doing, even if it is only a little.
Brian Rose created a short documentary worth watching. It is available on YouTube all about movement, featuring Ido Portal, called, JUST MOVE.
