Do this every hour today…
As we begin to focus on some gentle basic movement awareness for your bones, it is important that you first check with your doctor if you are at risk of fracture or even broken bones. And secondly, that you tune in and pay close attention to your body as you move!
When was the last time you gave your core muscles a little TLC?
They work SUPER HARD for you all day, every day. But most of us don’t give them the attention they deserve – and when we DO think about them, it’s probably about how they look.
Well, here’s something eye-opening:
Your Core Muscles:
- Form the basis of basically EVERY movement you make, day and night.
- They keep your spine safe and stable as you move your arms and legs.
- They help you keep your balance.
- They power your breathing,
- Support your organs, and
- Keep you standing and sitting tall.
When they are out of whack, you can get headaches, neck aches, and low back pain (80% of us will suffer from back pain at some point!) and possibly risk a fracture.
You also can feel stiff and sore, tired, or have a hard time turning your head in either direction – plus, having weak core muscles can make you feel older than you actually are.
The problem is that for many of us, these muscles are out of balance because of the everyday things we do (or don’t do).
- Sitting slouched in front of a laptop, or sitting too much,
- Walking hunched over a phone, and
- Sleeping in not-so-optimal positions (i.e., curled up in a ball)
So … what can you do about it?
We are going to take a deep dive into CORE STRENGTH and explore the hows and whys of making your core stronger.
If you want to make some big changes in your core strength, be sure to check out my Stronger to the Core Challenge – it’s absolutely free as my gift to you.

And it all starts with a little assignment for you …
—> Every time you look at your phone today, think about your POSTURE! Sitting or standing tall helps keep those muscles in balance. Plus, it can improve your breathing AND your energy level.
Give it a try and see how it goes.
It’s the simple things we do every day that can have the biggest impact on how we feel!
We’re all about helping our clients install simple (but life-changing!) habits to create change and get REAL results.
