When I was a kid, you’d always find me with my nose in a book. Mom had to make me go outside to play.
To this day I am not athletic or even outdoorsy [caveat: once outside and enjoying the adventure, I love walking and hiking and water exercise back when we could do those things].
Now that we’re inside much more, we must still keep our bodies moving. Bend over, pick something up, move your legs, get up and down with the kids, watch a YouTube with an exercise that you’ll do, whatever it takes to twist and bend, rattle and roll. .
It’s one of the first things we who do energy work with clients will say: get up and move. Move the fluids throughout your body. Clean out your lymph system by physically moving your body so that the lymph moves, too. Here’s what the lymphatic system does (but nothing moves unless we physically move it in our bodies):
The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body.Feb 21, 2018

This is going to help your energy balances, your mental health, and your immune system. Some things that we all need to pay attention to these days.
There are great Yoga videos on YouTube, chair yoga, laughter yoga, more traditional aerobics, and even movements you can do while in bed. It all adds up.
Just so you know, I’m not a healthcare professional and cannot prescribe anything for you. But I know from personal experience that moving my body really helps my mind and soul, too.
Talk to you tomorrow!
