Energy means vitality. It is an impetus expressed in our bodies, in our moods and in the way we relate to others.
We might say someone has “good energy” or “bad energy” for example, or that we are energized by an idea. This all has a physical expression—as scientific studies continue to reveal. The body’s physiology and one’s particular life experiences in the mind are intricately connected—we could almost say inseparable. In fact, every day in our clinic, we see how our patients’ perceptions of what is happening to them in their lives is expressed by their bodies through symptoms. That is how the body itself communicates our emotional relationships with the world.
This is great news! It means that we have the power to influence our health at all levels with our thoughts and actions, and that each influences the other.
Our thoughts influence our energy instantaneously. Our movement also influences our energy levels and our thoughts. When we move with intention, this has an even more dramatic influence. Moving with intention powerfully affects the state of your mind and your emotions, as well as your physical experience of being in the body.
Being Energy’s daily Mind, Body + Spirit classes are a great example of moving with intention. Here is a sample of these practices (about 35 minutes)—it’s just the right amount to do daily to keep fit and healthy.
We invite you to enjoy the experience of movement, and wish you good energy!
