Are you feeling stuck where you are at in your life right now?
Are you feeling frustrated about doing simple everyday things?
Are you finding you have little or no energy to do things that you normally love to do?
Are you trying various things to change your situation and nothing seems to be working?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may find this article helpful to bring some change to your current situation.

With this article and others to follow, I am going to share some simple and easy things you can do to shift your life to where you desire it to be. 

When I refer to a shift, for me it means some form of step toward your ultimate goal.  

If your ultimate goal is to lose 20 pounds and you commit to go for a twenty minute walk three times this week, this can bring a shift to your current situation. 

If you want to feel more peace and joy, so you decide to turn off all your electronics and sit in the quiet and do some breathing. This can bring a shift. 

When I speak about a shift, I see it as any type of step no matter how big or small which can you to where you want to be. 

For me, I have found better results from taking small steps at the beginning when I starting and then over time I would decide how big of a step I want to take.  

I want to touch on something that I know has enabled me to bring about a shift in my life over and over again. 

I refer to this Movement. I have continued to experience proof that getting my body moving has cleared my head, relieved stress and made more feel more confident. What I have recognized is any type of movement can bring about a shift. 

I used to think I needed to commit to going to the gym 4 times a week to get back into shape. The challenge I faced was times when I wasn't going to the gym for awhile and committing to 4 times a week felt like a really big commitment. I would be ok for a few weeks and then I end up feeling overwhelmed as other life commitments came up. 
So when I refer to Movement, think of it as any way you can move your body. I have listed some below.

  • Going for a 5, 10, 15 minute walk
  • Dancing to your favorite music
  • Yoga
  • 5 minutes of stretching
  • A 15 minute run
  • A 30 minute bike ride
  • A 20 minute hike
  • A walk at the beach or park
  • Shaking your body to music
  • Jump up and down for 2 minutes
  • Play outside with your kids, friends, partner, neighbors

Do whatever you can physically do to get your body moving. Do it even if your brain is telling not to. Find others to move with if you can and have some fun with it. 

It is important to be gentle with yourself especially if you haven't done a lot of activity in awhile. It is also good to check with your doctor if you are uncertain if some activities may impact your health. 

I would love to hear from you to find out what movements work best for you and what results you are having from your moving your body. Feel free to share your experience on my facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/Betweenyourears
