I am challenged by not moving as much inside a smaller space. Exacerbated by inclement weather. So I have begun going up and down external stairs to my new home for exercise.
I am challenged by not having as much non-traditional movement during the day, bending and flexing. So I have begun squats and playing with my foam soccer balls (from IKEA).
Why is it important? Meditation practices have taught me that activating physical body parts and thinking about them is a great way of calming the thinking mind and being mindful about being in the space. So I think of that, take my quick break, and get back to it.
