New Series: Move Your Body!

Starting today, I am staring Everything Under the Sun and Moon’s very first series. I plan on doing “series” of posts in different categories, however, this particular one is for exercise. As I have mentioned before, moving your body (regardless of how) is such a treat for yourself. You will benefit mentally, physically, and spiritually. You will see a daily update of simple treats to give your body. Feel free to do as much or as little of the workouts as you’d like. Any physical movement is better than none. I truly hope you enjoy.

As you can see, today’s workout is with your own bodyweight. Bodyweight routines are so much fun because the exercises depend strictly on how much you can handle. Go at your own individual pace. If you are unsure what an exercise is or how to perform it properly, just click on its name for pictures, videos, and descriptions.

Pushups

Perform 10 pushups. Feel free to drop on your knees if standard pushups are too challenging. Feel your arm, shoulder, back and core muscles engaging. Take note of how you feel; are you shaky, stiff, or comfortable? There’s no rush, take your time.

……….

Regular Squats

Perform 12 squats. Take notice to how your legs and buttocks feel. Feel your muscles work for you. Take your time.

……….

Tricep Dips

Perform 12 tricep dips. These muscles are not used nearly as much in day to day activities. How does it feel to work these, are they one of your weaker body parts?

……….

Reverse Crunch

Perform 10 reverse crunches. The distant cousin to the usual crunch. This type of crunch will give your abdominal muscles a job in a different way.

……….

Boat Pose

Hold for 40-60 seconds or as long as comfortable. This is a real treat for your abdominal muscles, they’ll be delighted. Remember to breathe all throughout the exercise.

……….

Child’s Pose

Hold for as long as you’d please. Ahh, what a relaxer. Enjoy the moments you are in this pose. Such a good tension reliever for the back. As a helpful hint, if you find getting and or staying in this pose difficult, try spreading your knees farther apart from one another.

……….

Upward Facing Bow Pose

Hold for 20-60 seconds or however long it is comfortable. Open your heart and chest. What a stretch. Relax your neck and entire body. Relish the opening of your torso.

Ah. How do you feel now? See, nice and quick and pretty easy! Now that you finished, here’s a little present for you to take. Copy and paste wherever you’d like and feel free to link back to Everything Under the Sun and Moon if you’d like. Be proud of yourself once you have completed any type of good you do for your body. Much love.


Today’s Quote

“Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the Divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.”

Fyodor Dostoyevsky, author
