Welcome to day 3 of the #mindbodymat challenge!
Today’s self-care challenge is near and dear to my heart…
First off, I must give credit where credit is due. One of my favorite authors (and past PBP participants), Shauna Niequist wrote about making a “things I don’t do” list in her book, Bittersweet (which I highly recommend).
The concept stuck with me and has become a powerful tool in reminding myself of which things matter and which things don’t. Now that we have glimpses into other people’s lives through social media it can be really easy to compare and thing that we need to do all the things that everyone else is doing.
But the good news is, we don’t have to. We get to pick and choose how we spend our time (for the most part).
So I encourage you to make your own “things I don’t do” list today and enjoy the freedom that comes with it.
For inspiration, you can read mine right here.
Today we’re focusing on the upper body: biceps, triceps, shoulders and upper back. In my humble opinion, the muscles of the upper back are to blame for much of our poor postural habits and chronic aching backs.
This workout will restore proper alignment and leave you standing taller and stronger for the rest of the day.
Today’s Check-In: share your list with me on social media! Be sure to tag me and use the hashtag #mindbodymat. You just may inspire others who follow you to do the same.
PPS – Friday is the last day to upgrade! If you’re enjoying these workouts then you’ll love the videos that come with the upgrade. Sending the first one out in a few days. 🙂
