We all know that it’s good to take a break and stand up, stretch and move around during our work days, even if it’s just for a few minutes. Somehow though, we often reach the end day and realize we’ve been slumped over our desks for eight hours without taking those important breaks.
MindWell has created some motivation for you to get up and move! Every Tuesday, via MindWell’s Studio Be, Randi-Mae Stanford-Leibold, Mindfulness and Wellness Teacher, Speaker and Author, hosts Mindful Movement.
Mindful Movement is a combination of Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Yoga movements and stretching, with a focus on relaxation and strengthening your mindfulness practice. While this may seem daunting if you have never tried these activities, don’t worry! This class is less about doing the movements “right” and more about moving your body with intention to bring your mind and body into the here and now. It’s designed for everybody - no yoga mat or workout clothes required.
So take 20 minutes to move, breathe and relax. Randi-Mae’s session will not only refocus your mind to take on the rest of your day, but Tai Chi, Yoga, meditation and mindfulness have been scientifically shown to:
• Improve your response to stress
• Improve balance
• Reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, pain and insomnia
• Improve focus
• Improve quality of life and overall sense of well-being
• Assist with lowering blood pressure
• Increase flexibility and circulation
• Increase self-awareness and self-care
• Improve cardiovascular health
So just like you work out to improve your cardiovascular and physical health, take 20 short minutes to join Randi-Mae each week to strengthen your mindfulness practice and relax your mind and body. Join the next session!
