So I have been committing myself to physical exercise for the past 3 months. I started with 10 min a day non negotiable. It started as a way for me to make place for some necessary me time after having a baby. My baby was 3 months old at the time.(Have we already covered my overachiever tendency?) One of the thing I dread the most is to follow ‘wrong tacks’ and only realise it years later. So I tend to be a little controlling and I make sure my life is exactly what I want it to be every day. (has its perks but can be a little exhausting, and not just for me)
I started with 10 min a day. Very gentle yoga.
Then 15 min when I could.
Hardly 30 min, My body wasn’t ready and apparently neither was baby.
And about a month ago, I came across a French program that required 40 min a day, 5 days a week for 8 weeks.
It was mostly, intense workout, hiit and Pilates.
I felt very much ready and welcomed the challenge.
I signed in.
(Happy to say I am 4 weeks in now!)
So every morning without exception for the past 4 weeks, I have woken up, dressed/fed the baby and then my husband, my mum and I would be training. hard. Baby too, she’s been an angel at watching us, babbling and having her little baby workout.
I felt so powerful. In my body. The exercises, the results, the intensity, the pleasure to realise the progress you’ve made etc…
As I really enjoyed feeling my body more powerful I also witnessed my mind and my soul’s strengths increase.
I felt more certain, I felt more adaptable, I felt stronger in all ways.
It’s not the first time I had noticed a connection between my body, mind and soul. (Not mentioning the gazillion reads I had about it). But it is the first time I am willing to write and share about it.
When something is bother you find you entry door: body, mind or soul.
When you want to learn or improve a skill, find your entry door: body, mind or soul.
Everything so connected and you don’t have to take the hardest path.
What matters is for you to get where you want to go and there are indeed various ways to do it.
Body. Mind. Soul.
Physical. Mental. Emotional. Spiritual.
Look for your own way around.
Your power comes in all forms.
