The “silly season,” as I have heard it referred to, is the time during the preparation leading up to Christmas and New Year’s Eve. While there is so much work to do to prepare the home for the holidays and to get ready for Christmas concerts and having the kids back home from school, it can get a bit silly.
This silly season, don’t forget to take some time for yourself. Here is a great “work-in” (as opposed to a workout) program that focuses on mobility. A work-in is a phrase I coined to describe the action of using movement to enhance your energy, not expend it. This is the type of program you will want to do when you are feeling tight, sore, overwhelmed, stressed, tired or just feel like you need a mental break. It does not take too long, and you can repeat it multiple times in a day.
Quick Walk: Enhancing circulation throughout the body is the first step to increasing energy and mobility in the joints. Without good circulation, we struggle to provide the joints with healthy, nutritious fluids.
