5 Tips As You Begin Your Natural Movement Journey 


Here's the notes from the video: 

1. Start Slow and Build Gradually Natural movement is about reconditioning your body to move in ways it might not be used to. Begin with basic movements like squatting, crawling, and balancing. As you become more comfortable, gradually incorporate more complex movements. Remember, consistency is key.

2. Focus on Form Over Intensity Proper form is crucial in natural movement to avoid injury and maximize benefits. Pay close attention to your body mechanics and ensure you're performing each movement correctly. It's better to perform a movement slowly and correctly than quickly and incorrectly.

3. Incorporate Movement into Daily Life Natural movement isn't just for workout sessions. Try to integrate it into your daily routine. Walk or bike instead of driving, take the stairs, play with your kids, or simply stretch while watching TV. The goal is to make movement a regular part of your lifestyle.

4. Be Patient and Think Long-Term Natural movement training is not a quick fix. It's about gradually reawakening your body's innate ability to move efficiently and effectively. Be patient and focus on long-term progress rather than immediate results. Over time, you'll notice significant improvements in your strength, flexibility, and overall well-being.

5. Enjoy the Process and Stay Curious Have fun with your training! Explore new movements, challenge yourself in different environments, and enjoy the process of reconnecting with your body. The more you enjoy your workouts, the more likely you are to stick with them and make natural movement a lifelong habit.
