Today’s post will be brief as duty calls me elsewhere. However, I’d like to take a moment to return to the physical (a favorite topic). I can’t stress how important engaging with our physical bodies is for emotional wellbeing. We are physical creatures immersed (for the most part) in an incredibly sedentary, non-physical daily experience. Now, more than ever, it is important to compensate for this by moving, stretching, and breathing. This need not be extreme. It need not involve a gym or a trainer or the expenditure of anything but time, motion and a little sweat. Move yourself! You just might be surprised at how it feels.
