Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Look! Up in the sky.  It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superman!

Most of us are NOT Superwoman or Superman but we are Super Humans with an incredible navigation system if we will just listen to our bodies.

Life is movement!

Somethings move faster than others.  All movement has its own speed.  
While some things move slow like a turtle, others zip past, like a speeding bullet.

Even inanimate objects move as their atomic structure is always in flux.  You might not see it with the naked eye but it’s happening nonetheless.
As we sit in our chair working, our heart is busy pumping our blood that circulates; moving lymph to clear out toxins to protect us from disease and cells are busy converting nutrients from food into energy. If we attempt to sit as still as possible and relax all of our muscles, our breath breaths us. Unless of course we’re holding it, and that creates a whole set of problems in our bodies in and of itself.  

Our bodies constantly give us signals to move. When we listen to them and heed the call, giving them what they need, they take good care of us.  

The wind softly blows and we feel the gentle breeze on our skin kissing our face, grateful for the experience.  As the wind kicks up and it gets colder we feel the change and get up and either go inside or put a coat on. All day long we have messages that our body is trying to send us. Our shoulders may start gripping which creates tension in our jaw and muscles.  Referral patterns develop as other muscles chime in to get in the action and pretty soon we can become as tight as a string on an instrument, that pops when too much pressure is put on it. 

What messages does your body give you?  
Do you listen?  
Do you heed their warning or ignore their messages?  

It’s not much different from listening to when we’re hungry and what we are hungry for and then giving our bodies the foods they need for optimum health. 

It’s the same with feelings. Ignoring them doesn’t work and listening to every whim isn’t helpful either.  But If we know what we are feeling, we can communicate, adjust, walk away, cry, laugh, yell if necessary, meditate, move etc, so we don’t let things fester. When we don’t listen to our bodies energy gets trapped which converts to stress where dis ease can manifest. When we don’t have healthy avenues of expression to release these feelings, they can remain stagnant in our bodies much like polluted waters.

Life becomes a constant adjustment and adventure when we listen intently to your bodies needs and give it what it’s asking for.  
However, if we ignore it, it will act out sending you messages of pain and dis ease until it gets so loud, we have no choice but to listen.

If we aren’t on a schedule with time constraints, we might be able to do a better  job and act on the messages we receive. Moving too fast creates tension or falls etc. that can really set us back. However, when we have more time on our hands, we can easily move into lethargy and become anxious and depressed letting our mood and mind dictate and we can become inert. Because most of us have schedules with things we have to do, setting a time in our day to move with time blocks are helpful to assure we get the exercise we need. 

Whatever the case may be, start listening to the messages your body is giving you and act on them.  Our body has an innate intelligence so give it the respect it deserves. It is a gift, our sacred temple, which we are lucky enough to live in.

“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, “Wow what a ride!”

― Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967

Now get out there and make it a great day!

I hope you enjoy this video of combined movement.  You may decide to do it in chunks if not all at once.  It starts out slow and builds up. There’s light background music but it might not be loud enough, so choose your favorite music and crank up the volume. Remember to listen to your body and go at your own pace.

Put some Music on and Move It!

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful workout and rest of the week!

Keep Moving and Stretching,

💖

Cindy

That’s an epic post, dear Cindy. As you and I have discussed, I spent many years not listening to my body; and what a liberating experience to actually listen. The subtlety we develop as we learn to listen, is amazing, profound, and so powerful. A wonderful message, Cindy. I love it! ❤️🥰🙏🌹❤️

It’s true that listening to your body is so important: I learned this from PMDD. I have to be alert to signs of ‘overwhelm’ and take time out when I notice them, otherwise I become like a volcano about to erupt! 🌋

Cindy, I went a little deeper into your video. I had already worked out, so it was a nice warm down as well as a warm up. I liked how the early stretches made my back feel as I warmed down. Thanks. By the way, nice cat – does the cat join in? Keith

Cindy, Ollie is a friendly name. As for the exercises, being so tall, I have to be mindful of pressures on my lower back. The best tip I got one some leg based core exercises is to roll the mat up and lay it under the lower spine. This helps when I elevate both legs off the ground, placing the pressure on the abdomen not my back. I like how your routine started off slow and built up. You have done this awhile. Keith

Thanks for the great words and video to get me motivated. As a writer, it’s easy to SIT and write much of the day – especially after chasing a 20-month-old around the house yesterday! It’s always good to get a little nudge to get going. Wishing you a very special day! Upward and onward! 💪🏼

Wise advice. I read recently that long periods of sitting are as bad for you as cigarettes. I have never smoked, but I sit more than I should. I am planning some activity into every day and trying to take breaks from sitting. I also like what you said about the thought process and decision-making. <3

Lovely post as always Cindy. I have been listening to my back and neck and doing pretty well. I have had so much luck with this nerologist that did the procedures on my neck, my traps are so much better, it has been such a blessing. Sending you lots of love and hugs and thanks for the great work out video. Love and hugs, Joni xoxoxoxo

Dearest Cindy I knew I saw comments from you this morning. I had so many, which I am not use to, I don’t know how you ever get to all of yours. Your amazing. So they were not in my pending and no longer showing up anywhere. So I decided to do some detective work and see if you had responded and hoped I would see it your blog. So I am going to try and back track but if I miss some forgive me sweetie. I have been having problems again with my site and I don’t even know what I can do. They did open a ticket for me which was nice. Anyway was so happy to see your on the finalist list, a big congratulations to you sweetie. I told you, that your poetry was really good. I couldn’t even look, I asked my husband to go in and see, I was thrilled to be there myself. So happy for you, big, big congratulations. By the way you do look amazing Cindy, a great body, my friend. You can tell you work out believe me. Sending you bundles of love, my friend from not so far away. xoxoxoxxo

This is resonating with me today! I have always thought that I listened to my body very well . But for the past six years I have forgotten how. Somehow in this season of my life my mind and body were left behind while I took care of my kids. I lost how to listen. I am slowly learning how again. Thank you for sharing!

Sometimes it is hard to listen to your own body. It is important to listen every time. I have already put in my two–week notice at work because of my body. Within the 2 1/2 years that I was at this particular job, my body has gotten worse. When I put my notice in, I told my boss that I don’t want to leave, but my body is saying otherwise. I’m too stubborn to quit, to give up (thanks Dad), but my health comes first. I actually broke down and started to listen.

I started everything I’m doing from having my group and website in her and my grandmother honor being that we all had a love for books and writing. They are missed. Rest In Paradise.
