Mindful Exercise -Do Anywhere Daily Exercise Program

So I have lost motivation for exercise aside from biking.  I need to build it into my daily and weekly routine as I am not able to bike daily.

I had an idea this week to try to merge my mindfulness time and my exercise time in hopes of engaging both more frequently.

What if I listen to my Daily Calm app while doing slower type exercises.  Instead of sitting I would focus on being mindful while exercising.  I know this might seem contrary to the point of mindfulness but maybe it will encourage me to do both with a positive impact to my health.

Rapid experiment:  Daily – Practice mindfulness (DAILY Calm Walking Meditation) while performing the exercise routine below.

 At least 10 reps of the following:

Arm rotations

X-Arms

Neck rotations

Twists

Jumping jacks

Toe touches

Knee Outs

Squats

Walkout push-up

Leg raises

Curls-Bands

Tri-Extensions-Bands

Chest Press-Bands

Lunges

Burpees

 

Be mindful of body, breathing and environment while doing this.

Finish with a mindful hot shower.

 

Results to follow.
