Human beings struggle to grow, learn, recover, or function effectively when in the sympathetic dominant, or stressed, state. Therefore, if we are engaging in lifestyles, and more specifically exercise programs, that we dislike or hate, or our bodies are poorly conditioned to handle, the benefits of these programs are often negated, or even overturned into injury. What’s more, the odds of continuing of such an exercise program are significantly reduced - who wants to do something they hate on a regular basis after all? The mental and emotional body can literally halt the physical body.
JP has coined the phrase ‘Joy in Motion’ or J.I.M. to communicate the difference between exercising because you feel you have to, and exercising because you love what you do. In writing his book Joy in Motion, he has explored the forms of activity that bring humans innate joy, the elements these activities have to contain to be defined as J.I.M. and how we can go about finding our own way to this.
In this exploration of an uplifting concept, JP wants to share some of this fascinating information, personal stories that will move you on all three levels and strategies to gain a deep understanding of discovering joy in your activity, and the activity of your clients.
