Have you every noticed that there are a small handful of people in your life that you don't really see or talk to that often, but a few times in your life they seem to make huge impacts?
Lucy Paget is one of those friends to me.
She was the one who helped to steer me onto my path of learning more about neuroplasticity by telling me that just because I had this severe sounding diagnosis of what was causing my back pain, that it didn't mean that I needed to live in pain. Sounds crazy right? Well, after looking into a few things and chatting with another great friend, Laura (she is the one who strongly recommended reading 'Explain Pain' and there is another huge impact that we'll talk about another time), I've started to work on my back and learn more about how to live without as much pain (and sometimes... no pain!).
Lucy also introduced me to MovNat which has been amazing and I love the idea of taking natural, physical, practical movements into the practice of Critical Alignment. Mind you this is still a huge work in progress for me and I look forward to always learning more. Lucy is the one that showed me that MovNat door and I am ever grateful to her for both impacts in my life.
A few months ago she wrote a newsletter for her business, Intrinsi, about what they see as the one change that would make the greatest impact towards a healthy life. It was exercise. In the last 2 weeks I've come across a couple of articles about this exact thing. They are a great read and motivator to Make Movement a Habit. Every. Day.
