Time to Move…Time to be Still

By Alisa Anderson


During this time of year, people begin to think about their weight, stress, and over all well-being. It’s that time of year where we may have already broken the promises made to ourselves about all the efforts to start “A New Year” and “A New You”.  Before my career with JK Products & Services, I owned a Spa/Wellness studio. I am a certified “Life Coach” as well as a certified “Wellness and Health Coach”.  January is the month that I would receive frantic calls from clients —-even before they’ve let their food digest—-eager to lose the weight they’ve gained during the holidays. The most frequently asked question is, “How can I get motivated to begin working out?”


Start slow and easy into an exercise routine. Find a buddy and hold each other accountable. It’s always more fun to do things with a friend. Stop thinking about movement as something you have to do and recognize that it is something you get to do. Don’t tell yourself that exercise is a dreadful experience, otherwise the mere thought of it will exhaust you. Change your perspective and think of exercise as “play time”. Move with childlike excitement.  Time to Move.


The next question I used to get from people this time of year is “How do I relax?” The biggest excuse I hear attached to this question as to why relaxing can be so be difficult to accomplish is time and money. I always ask in return, “When was the last time you relaxed? Maybe we sit down at the end of a day to watch a favorite show but while watching that show we hear the unmistakable beep that follows every email, text message, and social media alert. Even a passive activity like watching television is riddled with interruptions. Our minds are locked in a constant battle between living in the current moment or searching for the next. So, let me ask again. When was the last time you relaxed? For most of us, time seems to be limited. We all have the same amount of time in a day and yet it seems like there is never enough of it. It seems like time is running out. Time is in high demand but short supply. So, how do we “find” more?


We are surrounded by technology designed to make life easier. This same technology has created a modern-day work model where employees are on-demand 24/7. With the rise of the smartphone, it is impossible to escape work emails and business calls. Our work is with us everywhere we go. What was designed to help us is actually hurting us. What was designed to free us is enslaving us. We over book, over schedule, and over commit. We juggle the daily intricacies of our life. But anyone who has ever learned to juggle knows that you never actually see any of the objects you’re juggling. They go into the air, spin round and round, and fly by in a blurry maze. The only thing you can think about is not dropping the objects. Just keep juggling. Just keep going.


Don’t pause. Don’t reflect.

You might drop everything.

Don’t stop. Don’t rest.

You might get passed in this race of life.

Time to be still.
