If you have struggled with finding exercise you enjoy, todays episode is for you.
For many people, the word 'exercise' feels like a heavy word loaded with expectations, pressure, to-do lists and punishment. That's why I try to encourage those deconstructing exercise to change the word to movement for a time because our bodies need movement, any movement, for optimal function. Exercise is just a fancier word that has been co-opted by the very loud weight loss industry, hence creating this idea that exercise is for either 'earning or burning' food.
Today I give you 5 steps to help you change your mindset to find movement that is fulfilling and enjoyable.
