When starting any movement routine, whether weight lifting, dancing or yoga, one should always start with a baseline. Take a mindful moment to check in and rate your level of…. (stiffness, pain, energy, mental or physical fatigue.) Choose one or all of those and rate on a 0-10 scale. 0=I have no pain, energy, mental clarity, 10=worse pain, highest energy, clear, grounded mind BEFORE you run, stretch or lift. Then, afterwards, you got it, take a moment to check-in once again. IF your “scores” improve then that it is the routine for you. The more you tune into how your feel before and after you move, the more you will be able to determine the healthiest habits for you, today. Behavorial awareness is about one day at a time.
