Move Better at Home

Listening to your gut..with Sunil Godse
Do you ever get those little hints that are meant to guide you toward or away from a situation? Intuition is real and scientifically proven. In this interview with Sunil Godse, we dive deep into  understanding what intuition is, how complex intuition is, and why people ignore their intuition.  More about Sunil: After making a series of bad decisions, with one leading to a friend being shot and killed, Sunil Godse spent thousands of hours on research and interviews to find out that the reason we waste time making bad decisions is because we ignore our intuition, a subconscious phenomenon that we are all born with that helps us make the right decision at the right time in any situation we find ourselves in. Sunil developed a seven step process that shows you how to sharpen your intuition so that the only decisions you make are the right ones in any situation that move your life forward.

Managing Back Pain at Home
Back pain is prevelent, but it doesn't have to be debilitating. Listen to what your body feels like. Start to be aware of which positions relieve pain or increase pain, and then challenge yourself with other activities. If it gets too much find the comfortable position. Movement has been shown to be more helpful in managing pain than rest. You may need to move slowly until you are comfortable.s Learn to not be afraid to move. Learn how to breathe. Believe that you will get better. Find what corrective exercises are right for you. I think strength and mobility exercises helps to keep you moving in the right direction. The more strength we build the easier it is to move. It's common in women over 50 to develop osteoporosis, but strength training and weight bearing exercises like walking can help prevent bone loss. Exercise and mobility can also help if you have radiating symptoms. I'll be hosting a virtual workshop on September 30, 2020 on the ABC's of managing Low Back Pain. You can sign up on my Facebook page  Cheers to your movement health!
