Personal picture 

Remember the exercise in You are here? The one where we visualized why we’re doing this? Take a second and tune into that. Part of getting there, to that big picture, is getting moving here. Our personal picture is a powerful, positive motivator that can help energize us to take action in the here and now. Let’s use that personal picture to get started on range-of-motion and flexibility moves that will help us feel better. You know your body best. What you do is up to you. Create your own plan or get ideas from the Brilliant MOVE section where you’ll find RANGE-OF-MOTION and FLEXIBILITY activities that help arthritic joints. Tune in to you. Create a plan that works for you.

Activities for different modes

Research tells us that the brain will be a better wing (wo)man if it thinks it has a choice. Ok. Are you ready to play? Dear brain, there isn’t one range-of-motion activity that will make us feel better—there are many. From stretching in bed and slow dancing at dinner to self-massage, they all count. What will we enjoy doing? Tell me, I’m listening. Loosen up, be free and shoot me some ideas. While you’re on it brain, remember that we have different modes. Sshh? Why should I sshh? Let’s admit it. We all have different modes that show up. One of them is super social, another is hermit-like, and we both know about the super lazy one that would make great company for a sprouting potato. So can you use the activities below to come up with a plan please? Good. You’re a star. Thanks.

How will you move?
Tune in and choose what works for you.
