Move your mind, Move your body, Move your soul.
We've just gotten through a really... emotional... election.
Name calling, lies, pitting us versus them (even more than usual).
And in the aftermath?
So. Much. Anger.
Anger is a tough one. We hear about anger management exercises, cooling the anger. In the days around the election, I tried not to be angry. I really did. I tried to stuff it, focus on love, focus on ANYTHING other than the fire I felt boiling inside. I'm a pacifist. I love love.
You know what? It didn't work.
Anger, like any emotion, needs to be expressed - released - a movement of the energy into something else. Anger is creative.
So today, let's talk about how we can use our anger as fuel. Fire it up.
So that's me. Planking it up.
Planks create some serious fire in the core. Throw in some leg lifts, cross knee towards elbow, etc and you will be sweaty in no time.
Planks are a great "go to" when you feel angry. This is because our fire center, literally, the powerhouse of our bodies reside in the core. Anything that brings your fire to your core is going to help! (Don't forget twists!)
Don't mask it. Don't push it down.
Notice it. Now use it. And create something amazing.
You gotta feel it to heal it.
