This is the first of four episodes for “Mindset Month.” We are digging deep into our thoughts to pull out the weeds that keep us from reaching optimal health, and then planting the seeds for a flourishing thought garden. Today’s weed is  “healthy activities aren’t enjoyable.” Plus I’m answering a listener question about why I recommend the untucking the tailbone and unthrusting the ribs.

08 | The Healthy Moving Podcast

Do you ever feel weighed down by the hard of life, like you’re facing a ton of resistance? It is so tempting to grab for easy when life gets hard, but we can’t improve our health or our life with easy. We absolutely need a commitment to ease though. This week, I’m talking about the difference between easy and ease. Plus I’m answering a listener question about beginning a meditation practice.

Show Notes

1) Before I meditate, I like to do a few yoga poses to get out of my head and into my body. Even just a few minutes with one of these yoga shorts is enough. Or a breathing practice like this or this.

2) It is so helpful to take little meditation breaks, like this one, throughout the day when you feel stressed or anxious.

3) In addition to regular movement throughout the day, I find restorative yoga poses so helpful for cultivating ease.

And, here is help for chronically tight hamstrings.

1. Begin the transition to minimal footwear. As you slowly decrease the heel height you are accustomed to, be sure to do lots of calf stretching (like this, this and this) and love on your feet and ankles, too (with this, this and this).

2. Find and maintain a neutral pelvis. What is a neutral pelvis? Find it with this, this and this. Then, work on releasing the psoas muscles, which are often the underlying cause of your chronic tucking (with this and this).
