Movement helps move energy, meditation helps build energy. We can use movement to destress and achieve a sense of balance. Without movement energy stagnates in our body and we feel fatigued and uneasy.
One of the things that happens to our bodies when we get injured or as we get older is that our bodies get tighter and less flexible. Similarly when there is stress and trauma in our lives, our minds get ‘tight’ and this slows down the healing process. Here is the good news, since the mind and body affect each other greatly, we can actually use our bodies to help the healing process of injury to our minds. Movement then is key to healing, growing and becoming stronger in our bodies and minds.
