Make Friends with Movement

Don’t be afraid to dance.   To some people, moving represents pain. They’ve had a scarred and worried relationship with it that has left them scared and afraid to reach out any farther than it once or still does hurt. Their world has gotten smaller, and they’re not sure or maybe not even aware of Read More …

Do What Feels Good

Sometimes we do stuff that kinda sucks because we know or someone has convinced us enough it’s getting us closer to somewhere else we want to be. But what is going to keep you going? What makes you do more of it more than anything? What feels good. I rail against stretching but it’s not Read More …

There is No Try

Words I’m trying (haha) to gradually eliminate from my clients’ vocabulary: 1. Stretches (as in, “I did my stretches” or “I did your stretches”) 2. Try (“I try to stretch”) Combined together, they usually confront me in this context: Me, to client that I love dearly and want to get better so they don’t see Read More …

Do Something About It

Why should you care about moving more? Why would anybody want to stay in pain? People can identity with illness and pain. They complain about it, sure, but it becomes a part of your life.

What you might not have is sufficient motivation or focus. I’m procrastinating right now by writing this article, because I thought it was more important Read More …

54 Days

I did CARS for 67 days straight. I got more energy, better movement, less discomfort, more flexibility, and lost weight.   When I first started this project I wasn’t very good at the consistency I now understand so much better.   I used an app called Coach.me to start getting myself on track. I asked others Read More …

It’s consistency!

Lifestyle demands and habits. Think about your daily life. How often do you use a full range of motion in any of your Read More …
