EPISODE #3 // Movement Vs. Exercise and How To Stay Motivated

A badass yoga pose.

It’s January, and that means resolutions and goals are at the top of everyone’s minds. Particularly when it comes to exercise and moving our bodies more.

In today’s episode, we’re talking about movement, motivation, and benchmarks for success. Through it all, we’re both looking to make movement a priority in our lives so that we can take care of our bodies, minds, and overall health.

We’d also love to hear from you! What does movement (and exercise) mean to you and what are your benchmarks for success? Do you measure success outside of weight loss or body measurements? If so, how? And what do you to stay motivated when things get difficult (or busy)?
