Over the years I have had a love/hate relationship with “move time”. Moving your body, health, exercise, wellness, and nutrition are all subjects I didn’t learn about through a Biblical lens. I was well into my thirties before I began to make the connection between my walk with Christ and my morning walk. The more I learn about moving my body the more I realize just how connected the spiritual is to the physical.
Moving our bodies can present a level of pressure to us at times. We see moving our body as a way to get skinny or stay skinny. We can associate moving our bodies with what we are lacking as a person and therefore it is hard for us to keep a positive outlook or mindset towards exercise. Sometimes in life we experience injury or illness which sets our move goals completely out of the picture for a while.
Being able to create a positive mindset towards moving our bodies is key to beginning and keeping any movement routine. Remember that creating and keeping a positive mindset towards movement means we will need to stay flexible. Staying flexible with circumstances, although flexibility can certainly be a goal with move time.
Here are a few tips to help keep a healthy mindset towards movement.
I hope these few things have helped give you some encouragement today. Wherever you find yourself today, you are right where God wants you to be. You’re not behind, you’re not too late. You are right where you need to be to begin a new routine, create a new mindset, and allow God to do what only HE can do in and through you. Blessings on your journey!
