Let push and pull motivation help you.
Our personal painkiller
Building stamina takes time. When we start moving it can be slow to see the benefits. But don’t fret about it chaps. Even if we don’t immediately notice any changes there are background benefits going on. In background mode, vitality moves activate brain systems that mimic the opiate drugs that reduce pain. These systems activate endorphins and the endocannabinoid system to trigger the body to feel less pain and anxiety. Wild right? Let’s use our own natural resources to help us manage arthritis naturally.
Own brand mood enhancer
The same systems that help reduce pain can also increase positive feelings and wellbeing. This system is triggered by the kind of vitality moves that we’re starting this week. Let’s start slow to grow strong and develop our own brand mood enhancer. Let’s activate our happy helpers and talk supportively to ourselves. This is not a competition, this is you working with you at a pace that supports you. Replace expectations with thanks and appreciation for wherever we’re at. Are you ready to be the best friend and coach you’ve ever had? Let’s do this.
Moving more gives us a sweet, natural high. Let’s get going and stay going.
