You are unique. There is no one exactly like you. And because you are here, you have a purpose that only you can fulfill. I have found that when we do harm (to our self or others) it is because we feel inadequate and are hurting inside. Healing occurs when we acknowledge the pain and forgive. And if you compare, judge, and criticize yourself, chances are you will not feel good about yourself. You will sense that you are not enough.
If this is the way your brain works, the good news is you can retrain it. Practicing one Meditative Movement at a time might be your answer. With over 140 cardio, flexibility, balance and strengthening movements, some are intended to center and energize you. Others give you a way to release more difficult emotions like worry and anxiety. The I Matter Meditative Movement™, our featured May movement, is available on our website. This fun movement gets your entire body moving as you repeat, "I Matter, I Matter, I Matter, Matter, Matter." As you speak the mantras out loud, you get to hear your own voice proclaim this truth.
This is a new mind-body technique that has been found to reduce anxiety, depression and fatigue while improving emotional and functional well-being per a 2017 University of Minnesota research study. The movements are designed so you can have fun moving your body while retraining your brain with nurturing messages.
For many of us, we were never told that we mattered. While it is great to have someone else tell us we matter, it is imperative that we acknowledge this for ourselves. We invite you to give it a try. The key to living a whole and healthy life is knowing you matter even when you make mistakes or things are not going your way.
Meditative Movements can shine a light on your life journey. This technique provides a way to become more aware of your present, awesome self. Most importantly, you exercise your personal power in a new way. You come to embrace the fact that you truly are unique and valuable. It all begins with practicing a movement a few minutes a day.
