Seems like we could all use a little support to "keep moving!" this year, am I right?
December can be one of the most challenging times of the year. It's the darkest month (literally) in the Northern Hemisphere... we face emotional challenges with holidays, memories, family/friends expectations... and of course the cherry on top... ya know - a global pandemic.
A couple weeks ago I started feeling myself slipping back into some familiar depressive energies (sleeping a lot, not wanting to get out of bed, nothing to look forward to). I know I'm not alone in this as the dark and colder days hit us. It's a challenge to keep our energy up.
Lately, I've been dancing almost every day. My girl Tasha Blank had a daily dance challenge that got me started. It really helped to have some accountability to keep going. Even when I didn't feel like it, the group momentum pushed me to show up & (of course) I always felt better after moving.
SO... I've cooked up a movement/dance accountability challenge for us this December.
It's super easy to join - you'll just add your email to the form on resolvetoevolve.me
In December, I'll send a daily email with a dose of dance inspiration and some occasional videos where I'll share some motivational tips to keep you grooving and feeling yourself this month.
Oh yeah, and when I say "dance" what I typically practice is a mixture of stretching, yoga poses, mindful breathing, bouncing, giggling, grooving, twirling, growling and anything else I feel like doing. There are NO STEPS and you CANNOT DO IT WRONG.
