You’ve heard me say it a thousand times on instagram “your breath is the most important piece of the puzzle”, but WHY exactly is it so important??
After pregnancy, when the bottom of the ribcage remains flared out in the front, it causes the stomach to also protrude. It is not possible to get a truly flat stomach if the ribcage is still flared.
Look at the image below . This is a student of mine. I've put the arrows on there so that you can see the difference in ribcage flare. Look at the difference in the angle of the arrow. It might not look like much, but it makes a HUGE difference to the shape of your midsection. We have almost entirely corrected it due to correcting the BREATHING...
If you can manifest your dream job, dream house, dream life etc, why can’t you manifest your dream body?
Imagine living your life in the most energized, healthy, and beautiful body you can. I’m a firm believer in the philosophy that ‘thoughts become things’ and that ‘you are what you think’. If you can manifest a pay rise, a new job, a dream house etc, there is absolutely no reason why you can’t manifest the body you’ve always wanted. Now of course you can’t change your height or overall structure. But you absolutely can manifest your way to becoming strong, flexible, toned, and tight if you follow the steps to manifest your dream body and take action.
Not only can you manifest better health, but you can also manifest your dream body with the Law of Attraction - (a highly regarded philosophy that teaches us that we attract what we THINK so you’d better think positive thoughts). Sure, you are going to have to...
If you’ve been trying to get more physically active but just haven’t been able to find the motivation, how about working out with a little help from your friends? Even the CDC recommends it! Lol.
We know that training the mind to be disciplined makes working out WAY easier, and when you harness extra discipline from a friend, it becomes even easier still. Like a mindset Power Up!
You and your workout buddy will cheer each other on. When you work out with a friend, you’re more likely to:
To enjoy all these...
The research is clear. You can improve your physical and mental health by thinking this more frequently…
Neuroscientists tell us that because body-centric lifestyle changes (like diet and exercise) are difficult to maintain, they recommend starting with the mind. And they've identified the one thought that, when regularly focused upon, is most likely to propel your mind and body into an upward spiral.
That thought? Gratitude.
I know, i know, sounds kind of granola right..? But there's actually extensive research into the positive mental and physical effect of that specific thought and emotion, according to a fascinating article published by the Wharton Health Care Management Alumni Association. Here are a few highlights:
People who keep gratitude journals "reported fewer health complaints, more time exercising, and fewer symptoms of physical illness." (According to the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology)
If you know me, you've probably heard me say before that it takes 4-6 weeks of consistent workouts to notice a significant change in the body. And just 72 hours before we start to loose some of that fabulous muscle tone we've worked so hard for.
Now don't let that discourage you. On the contrary. Personally I think that might be the most motivating thing I've ever heard!
And since there is just under 6 weeks left of 2020, it's the perfect amount of time to get a really good head start on our 2021 workout goals. Because why wait til January 1st when we can do it now?!
So unless you are injured or sick, you want to make sure that you don't ever leave 3 full days in between your workouts. Why? Because the body CRAVES movement. And because working out will make you feel AMAZING!
If you get your workouts in this week for no other reason than because it makes you feel amazing, then my work here is done my friends!
So let's get those workouts scheduled...
