To move is sometimes not an easy thing to do.
M.O.V.E is an acronym I created in 2012, while working with a coach.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic that’s rocking our country and this world, I’ve been using my M.O.V.E. acronym more often.
Some of you who have read my articles may remember this helpful tool and use it yourself as you get stuck.
First, I’ve shared with you in the last several weeks, some of my struggles.
Consequently, I’ve needed to bring this important tool to the forefront, as I’ve needed to move in different ways.
As a result of working with Vasavi, who I’ve shared about in other articles, my M.O.V.E acronym came to be.
Going over with her what I chose to do to pull myself back up from a great heartache several years ago, birthed my M.O.V.E. formula.
Creating presentations about this helpful tip, made it clear to me, others needed to learn about this.
Here’s a link to check out my radio interviews, podcasts and a video to hear more about it:
The simplicity of M.O.V.E., ensured people could easily remember and use it.
M- is about getting into some kind of physical movement. Hence, as I’ve shared with you, I have made physical exercise a part of my life.
Since the health clubs aren’t open now, I knew I needed to continue a regular exercise routine.
You may know as well, when you get outside or simply dance, do yoga, perform some kind of weight training, you feel better.
Not just physically, only emotionally and mentally too. Endorphins are created that help you to feel better when you move.
O- open to receive your lessons or messages. Also, take ownership for where you’re at and what you’re thinking and feeling.
Don’t blame yourself or anyone else for anything. Simply look at what may be going on and know you can shift or change it.
V-verbalize what you’re feeling with someone you trust. Holding it inside leads to feeling worse. Talking to my sister, Karen today, was helpful for me and I’m sure it was for her as well.
E-expand yourself inter-personally and spiritually. Pray, meditate, write in a gratitude journal, read inspiring things.
Therefore, when you find yourself feeling out of sorts, stuck, or anything that doesn’t feel good, remember my M.O.V.E. acronym.
When I went over what I did many years ago with Vasavi, I realized when I did all of these things, I felt better.
Eventually, I was able to pull myself out of the despair I lived in, to a life I truly loved.
As you read about these tips, stop, and ask yourself if you’ve naturally done any of them to help yourself.
My guess is you have.
As you stop to use these tips, chances are, they may keep you from getting really down or stuck.
Lastly, I’ve enjoyed more happiness or joy lately. Without all of the tools I use regularly, I may not be feeling this way as often.
The different world we are living within, has some silver linings. Others have shared theirs with me. I’m paying attention to what mine may be.
What about you? Are you finding some “silver linings” with all that’s been going on for over two months now?
I hope you share some of them with me.
Sending love and blessings to you,
