Staying "in sync" ~ Movement to the rescue!

Updated: Nov 2, 2020

We have a brain for one reason and one reason only — and that’s to produce adaptable and complex movement — Daniel Wolpert

As increasingly longer hours of darkness are ahead and most likely quarantine revisited -feelings of disconnect, anxiousness, and depression may have a negative impact on our health and wellbeing. In a related topic in a Harvard Health Blog, Pillay mentions that “…recent studies show that the connection between your brain and your body is a 'two-way street' and that means movement can change your brain, too!” [1] Pillay also states, “…while your brain is the master control system for your body’s movement, the way you move can also affect the way you think and feel.” [2]

Although physical and meditative activities can be performed on your own there are benefits in synchronistic movements. [3] Soon enough, social connection will be what many of us will be craving. But there is lightness in all of this impending darkness, as “…it appears that moving in time with others may result in us feeling better about ourselves compared to moving to our own rhythm.” [4] So it seems that this is the perfect time to connect to ward off approaching solo sedentary tendencies, which are linked to many diseases and conditions, including obesity, hypertension, back pain, cancer, cardiovascular disease and depression. [5]

Lightness of Movement offers various virtual methods for all levels and abilities to stay “in sync” regardless of circumstances... and we have special holiday pricing currently underway. Access your savings and consider gifting to someone in need as the holiday season will be here before you realize it -so let’s get moving together!

All the best, love & light~
