Today’s core exercises is less an exercise and more an act of awareness. Saturdays can be busy, I know mine is, and it doesn’t always leave room for a regular yoga practice.
So for today, your goal is to be aware of your core throughout the day. That means, while you’re out doing your shopping, watching your kid’s soccer game, having drinks with friends, pause to mentally check in with your core.
- Am I standing up tall with an engaged core?
- When I’m sitting am I slumping or keeping my core strong?
- Can I walk tall with my abs pulled in and up?
These are things to notice today. No self-judgment, no body shaming, no self-deprecation, just awareness of how you’re holding yourself and how you can use your core to improve your posture and stay strong throughout the day.
And if you do find some extra minutes to get in some deep core work, take another stab at your plank.
Have a great day!
