Lifestyle

Life should be fun and feel satisfying. Start planning to enjoy movement, redefine workouts, upgrade rest and recovery, and prioritize self care.  By avoiding chronic exercise patterns, we improve our desire to move while avoiding inflammation, injury, and the other pitfalls of over training. Incorporate improved mindset and self care rituals to complete the package.  Suggestions below can be met with a mindset of flexibility and personal choice.

Movement and self care can and should feel like play!
