FINDING PEACE AND HARMONY IN DAILY WORKOUTS

FINDING PEACE AND HARMONY IN DAILY WORKOUTS cover

Over the last few years, low-impact exercises like pilates, meditation and yoga have become increasingly popular amongst the fitness community.

Despite the initial resilience of many gym-goers, implementing mindfulness has been proven to enrich fitness goals in the long run by improving mental clarity and recovery after workouts. Ultimately, the mind and body balance can make your fitness journey more enjoyable and varied, thus more successful.

The introduction of low impact activities such as pilates and yoga has become a trendy lifestyle choice for many who want to improve their fitness in a calmer and mindful way. However, this doesn’t need to be difficult, and these alternate methods of mindfulness can be easily integrated into your everyday workout routines;

  1. Beginning and/or ending each workout session with deep breathing or meditation for as little as 3 minutes. All this entails is consciously connecting with your breathing and engaging in the present moment. You can play your favourite music, stand up, sit down, whatever way is most comfortable for you.
  2. Incorporate yoga stretches and Pilates exercises into your routine before and after workouts to enhance flexibility and bring a sense of 'zen'. Try Child's Pose and Downward Dog from yoga, and Plank and Leg Circles from Pilates.

These mindful activities can help enable fitness fanatics and gym-goers to find peace and harmony in daily workouts. Ultimately, the balance of the mind and body can make your fitness journey more enjoyable and varied, thus more successful in the long run! The best of both worlds!
