This past week I was feeling incredibly exhausted. The past few months were characterized by nonstop movement, literally from location to location, and also lots of movement in my business and personal life, so it’s really no wonder I was feeling spent. As a kindness to myself I rested whenever possible this week, and listened to what my body needed.
Then Sunday I drove down to San Clemente for my beautiful friend Sharon’s wedding. As soon as dinner ended the party migrated to the patio to get the dance floor going, and in no time guests were showing off their moves. Though I love me a good dance party, with all the tiredness of late I wasn’t sure where my energy would be. But as soon as I got on the dance floor and started moving my body, the energy was there. The more I indulged in the pleasure of moving and celebrating, the more my energy rose to the occasion. I even got to dance in the rain!
Afterwards I felt elevated and happy. That night I slept better than I had in a couple weeks. I was reminded in that moment, as much as resting is important for nurturing our bodies, so is having fun. Pleasurable movement increases your energy, lifts your mood, and raises your good vibrations, especially for women. By all means if you are worn out, rest. But don’t forget to switch off Netflix, put on your favorite 90s anthems, and move with reckless abandon! Indulge in the joy of movement, celebrate how great it is to be a woman, feel the clouds lift and your energy rise.
