Exercise after a prolonged illness/injury can be a bit scary for some. Not knowing the right things to do or worring that it may make things worse can be some of the main concerns.
From personal and professional experience I have found the following to be most helpful;
Have a firm faith and vision for your recovery- see how you want to be and work your way towards it step by step.
Listen to your body and stay empowered-work with your body and what’s within your control and measure your outcomes from there.
Support your exercise plan with adequate nutrition- just as important and sometimes more so is your diet, its essential that you get the right nutrients for your recovery. Do your research and get advice as needed.
Overall you must believe you can improve, believe you can and you will. This will empower you to take all the actions you need and maintain it.
Empower yourself within and results will come without 🙏💫
A regular chi gung practice can have immeasurable benefits for your health and wellbeing. Helping to balance out any areas of deficiency by encouraging the natural flow of chi throughout the body.
Being a gentle form of exercise it is suitable and helpful for a wide range of health conditions. Benefiting the mind and body by clearing out old stuck emotions and stagnant chi.
With regular practice you will feel more energised and supple and as old emotions clear, people often find a lot of health difficulties also go over time.
With the mind and body being so interconnected, as emotions get stored and energy gets blocked, this can lead to health problems such as fatigue and much more. Chi gung can be a powerful way to begin to clear this energy as it helps to reverse illness and maintain health.
Clearing toxins, keeping the organs healthy as well as joints and tendons in a supple and strong condition. This in turn improves mindfulness, gives natural energy, clarity, creativity and improved focus.
The list could go on but the only way for you to truly know is to find out for yourself. If you would like to try chi gung and discover the many benefits for yourself, please drop me a message below and I’ll get back to you with our dates and times.
When it comes to fitness training as with many things, it is always best to do what you love. Why force yourself to do some form of exercise that you do not ove or even enjoy when there are so many forms of exercise to choose from that you can find and fall in love with. If you haven’t found yours yet, then simply experiment.
Try different ways and methods; get creative and enjoy yourself whilst also getting results. When you really start doing what you love you may then find yourself finding flow; a state of immersion in what you’re doing. This can happen fairly easily in exercise when we get in to rhythmic patterns and become absorbed in the movement.
This is something I’m working on at the moment and it is a continual process of discovery.
