Thinking of the beach? Forget bikini bootcamps and “cleansing” till the cows come home, these last-minute efforts and attempts to feel good about your body are usually counterproductive and unsustainable.
Did you know that pushing your body to move in ways it hates produces cortisol, the stress hormone, which actually makes you hold ON to fat, especially in the mid-section? When your body and mind are happy and relaxed, it allows you to let go of what it really doesn’t need.
Furthermore, these intense, difficult workouts are often punishing and persist feelings of self-hate and insecurity.
The key is to love yourself exactly as you are in this moment NOW. And to listen to what your body wants and needs. That will inevitably involve movement because we actually love to move.
And we firmly believe in moving your body in accordance with your heart. Therefore, this Challenge is to listen to your body and heart everyday and move it in whatever way it really wants. For us, a favorite is dancing. We found ourselves in a hotel in Malaysia one morning spontaneously doing a mix of dance, yoga, pilates, and laughing!!!
Everyday we will post some sort of inspiration, whether a video, music, etc. It’s there to serve as inspiration, not instruction. It’s up to you to get in touch with your body and heart!
