Remember the Joy

Daily Movement Prompts, Sunday, June 11, 2017 edition: Remember the Joy

How many of your movement choices give you a sense of joy or accomplishment? Do they make you feel better after you’ve completed them, possibly feeling better than you expected to feel? Have you had those days where you were dragging your feet on your way to the movement of choice and then bounced away happier afterwards?

I wonder why we sometimes forget the joy in our accomplishments. We don’t need to burden ourselves with shame over inactivity or slow paces. We could start to remember the joy of the things we love or the joy of the completion or even the joy of the process itself.

What joy have you gained lately in movement? What joy would you like to find as you pursue your favorite activities? What sense of accomplishment are you aiming for? Can you enjoy what you found today?
