Exercise and Mindfulness
Hello and welcome to episode 99 of The Mindful Kind podcast about exercise and mindfulness!
In this episode, I share some of my thoughts and beliefs about exercise and how they've changed over the years. For example, I used to feel like exercise was a chore on my to-do list, when I now look forward to the many positive impacts exercise has to offer.
I also talk about 3 different connections between mindfulness and exercise:
1- Mindfulness encourages us to learn to listen to our bodies. To slow down and nurture our needs and also to rise to new challenges when we're able.
2- Mindfulness helps us connect more with our bodies and be present while we exercise (rather than wish it was over or count down time!).
3- Exercise presents many great opportunities to be mindful as it creates many sensations in our bodies which we can then pay attention to.
I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind.
