Global Organization Of Self Healing-Awaken your natural ability to heal
I like to do some form of exercise daily upon waking up and before sleeping. These exercises can be meditation, indoor bike, doing deep breathing for at least 3 minutes, put my hand on my heart and smile, smile stands for START MY INTERNAL LOVE ENGINE. Also, setting a positive intention in morning and night to accomplish goals daily and guidance from my angles. Works every time.
When we listen to our bodies, we can intuit what is ailing us.
I personally move daily. I mainly practice different types of Yoga, depending on my mood to help ground, center and stabilize my body. In addition to this I will run a few times a week. I also dance samba and Afro-brazilian a minimum of 2.5 hours a week in addition to other social styles speckled throughout the week (Blues, Swing, Salsa, Bachata). I will utilize dance, yoga, and Calisthenics (occasional weight training)in between training clients, for exploration, cardio, relaxation, and overall movement of my body.
A 50's and up coaching practice that guides folks to stay fit, active and engaged into their eighties and nineties.
I work with folks, fifty and up to help them to stay active into their eighties and nineties. I counsel my clients to work out an hour a day, six days a week. Seventy-five percent cardio, and the rest strength and balance. I help them find the right cardio for them and suggest Yoga, floor exercises (push-ups, core/balance work etc) and a little hand weight program. On top of that, I suggest that they always look to take a more active approach to day to day living - ie: take stairs instead of elevator, park a few blocks away on purpose, walk whenever possible. It takes a while to get up to six hours a week, but if you do it in bite sized pieces and stick with it, you'll become more energetic, sleep better and feel more agile. PS. Don't forget to stretch.
I'm a huge proponent of daily exercise, even if it's only for 15 to 20 minutes a day. I've been athletically active all my life and at age 65, I'm still running, roller blading or bike riding every day. I also do two 12 minute energization exercises and two sessions of weighted arm lifts. I think as much as my body loves the exercise, it helps me, even moreso, psychologically, to know I've made the time to pull away from the sedentary work time of my day and care for my body with intermittent exercise to keep me limber and youthful.
I'm a Life & Career Coach who helps people remove stress and experience success as they're faced with personal and professional changes.
I move my body every day. Could be a short or long walk - some days a little jog is tossed in there. I always listen to what my body and mind need and stop when I need or (or should.). Movement helps me to release any catabolic energy making room for the attitude I choose to create for the day. I also find warming up a bit and stretching key to my overall sense of mind/body connection as I pause to pay attention to how I feel. I suggest enjoying the alone time or for those who like to share an experience - find a partner or better yet adopt a dog to love and walk with.
I am a nutritional consultant who helps educate and empowers clients to make healthy food choices and implement and maintain healthy habits.
I like to exercise/move every day. I notice that even if I only do a little bit of weight training every day (enough to engage the muscles), I have even more energy to use the rest of the day as opposed to what I would have if I didn't. It's looking more likely that one good set of a simple full body workout and a good 30-60 minute walk is really all you need to keep up muscular maintenance. The catch is to do it every day.
For building strength, I would add more sets of one particular exercise in my routine, and I would change which exercise to emphasize every day so I don't put too much pressure on any specific muscle. The point is to be able to activate it again the next day! After years of exercising to my breaking point and waiting too long for my body to recover, it became clear to me that this doesn't work for me (and from what I can tell a lot of other people feel the same). I've been on this routine for several months and I have never seen better results from any other regimen I have done.
Personally, I like to do the strength training in the morning, and a nice long walk in the evening. Never felt better before doing this every day. Hope this helps!
