Small incremental changes add up to monumental, exponential change

There is nothing more frustrating than working hard on something only to have someone else come along and sabotage your effort. Well, when it comes to our health and wellness, we are often our own saboteurs. This show is the first in a special series called “The Building Blocks,” where we look at the things we are doing all day long that sabotage our health, even if we regularly workout. And today we are starting with the Core. If you have back pain, diastasis recti, or are worried about your cardiovascular health, this show is for you!

Don’t forget, I recorded a  FREE Core Class to go along with this episode!  Be sure to check it soon, I have an exciting BONUS there for you that is going away on 3/31!

It’s my birthday week, which always sends me into a reflective state. So today we’re talking about the big stuff that is really the little stuff – our choices – and their effects. Plus, I’m answering a listener question about how best to sit while chillin’ in front of the TV.

Show Notes

After I recorded this show, I saw this wonderful article in the Washington Post. The one thing the patient wanted, his goal, made me tear up. I am passionate about healthy moving because it not only improves how we feel today, it is also like making a “movement” retirement savings account. How we move (or don’t move) today, shapes our todays and our tomorrows, friends.

Healthy Moving In Front of the TV:
