Movement Matters


The modern world has led to a lifestyle of sedentary activities for most people. During our free time we are often sitting in front of a computer, watching TV, playing video games, or sharing our lives through a screen. Even our jobs have us spending long hours sitting at a desk.

Yet physical fitness remains an incredibly important habit for taking care of our bodies, so we are inundated with messages of “workout more,” “hit the gym,” and “run a 5k.” For many, these fitness activities are out of reach due to time, budget, or ability. And the messages we are bombarded with are intimidating, vague, and frustrating. That’s why I promote and believe in daily movement.

Just like eating healthy, daily movement isn’t about how much or how hard. It’s about consistency. Everyone is at a different point in their health journey, so I simply challenge my clients to be active.

For some that is taking a daily walk in the neighborhood, stretching each morning, or joining on online beginners’ yoga class. For others that’s a sweat session at the gym, an intense ride on the Peloton, or training for a marathon.

I encourage you to take some time to review where you are at in YOUR journey and think about what type of movement you can add to your lifestyle as a starting point. If you need some accountability or someone to coach you along the way, I’m here to help.
