Body consciousness is as important for our holistic wellbeing as breathing, eating, resting and loving. Why? Because our physical, mental and emotional systems all work better when one activity supports the other. So, staying active every day, leads to improved physical and mental health. Which in turn, supports our sustained success in other areas of our lives.
It’s 2021, which means people are spending more time at home now than ever before. But even before this ‘work from home’ era, our increasingly sedentary lifestyle was already resulting in serious health problems. Such as physical pains and aches, chronic disease, muscle wastage and weight gain for example. All this because of how much less active and more sedentary we have become.
Our work and our lifestyles mean we sit more, which also means we use less energy than when we stand or move. Furthermore, extended sitting – whether at a desk, behind a wheel or in front of a screen – can contribute to increased mental health issues such as depression and anxiety.
However, there are ways that we can counter the effects of too much sitting. And one of those ways are with body exercises that not only help to increase body consciousness, but also improve our overall physical and mental health and wellbeing.
Based on decades of experience and expertise, as well as informed research into recent studies on the subject, GRIT Academy aims to make a difference with our 4 GRIT B’s methodology.
At GRIT Academy we teach you seven simple yet powerful body practices across the seven-week GRIT Star programme. That’s one each session! And they are all easy enough for you to practice them alone. But with regular practice, you’ll see exactly how they can support transform your body consciousness!
By doing these daily body exercises for your wellbeing, you can stimulate the production of endorphins in the bloodstream. These endorphins are your body’s natural pain reliever.
By relaxing we encourage the increase of blood flow to the muscles. Thereby providing more energy, better metabolism and improved memory. In turn, relaxation helps you to achieve a clear and calm mind. Your thought process is more positive, which helps you make better decisions.
GRIT Body exercises are practiced in each session and will become part of your action to achieving sustained success. You can then enjoy them through the week between each session, thus training you and supporting your holistic wellbeing.
