Movement Practice

Above all, do not lose your desire to walk.  Every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness.  I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it.  ~Soren Kierkegaard

This month, I’m joining Jamie Ridler and others to start a “movement practice” whereby I’m committing to consciously move my body at least 10 minutes a day.  I know…this sounds like so little time.  But I’m going from unconsciously AND consciously moving my body next to zero minutes.  I also know that once I start moving each day, it’ll be more than 10 minutes.  It’s a way I use to “bribe” myself to get moving, “it’s ONLY ten minutes–you can do THAT!”  And I find that once I’ve started moving it feels SO good (the body IS MEANT/BUILT to move!) and I just want to keep going…and going…  I’ll tweet each day how many minutes I moved, as well I will log it onto newsfeed.
