Lively Conversation about Embracing Change in Mid-Life

Today’s topic: Movement

This is our new weekly conversation in our group!

As women, we often find ourselves juggling multiple roles and responsibilities, leaving little time for our own well-being.  Time to change that! One aspect of self-care that I talk about ALL the time, and  that should never be overlooked is movement. 

I see so many women as they get older, getting disconnected from that joyful and invigorating idea of moving their bodies. And even fearful of going out dancing and taking some sort of movement class, saying their are too old, they don’t remember, they haven’t danced since college, etc, etc, etc!

Moving our bodies regularly is essential for both our physical, spiritual, and emotional health, especially as we step into our mid-life experience.


The Benefits of Movement for Women in Mid-Life

Let me count the ways…

…countless benefits to continue, or start, moving our bodies, with a fresh start, or adding in something different:

  • Improved mood: Exercise releases endorphins, which have mood-boosting effects.
  • Reduced risk of chronic diseases: Exercise has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and some types of cancer.
  • Increased energy levels: Regular exercise can help us feel more energized throughout the day.
  • Stronger bones and muscles: Exercise helps to build and maintain strong bones and muscles, which can help us stay active and independent as we age.
  • Improved sleep: Exercise can help us fall asleep more easily and sleep more soundly.
  • Reduced stress: Exercise can be a great way to relieve stress and tension.

There are many different ways to move your body, so find something you enjoy and stick with it. I’ve always been a dancer, and many of my students and clients are dancers, but even with that mode of movement, cross-training, or doing something different is important for our bodies to continue to stay strong, flexible, and feeling great.


Imagine that great feeling of moving with more ease and joy in that beautiful divine bod!

What cha’ gonna do?

    • Walking: Walking is a great way to get some low-impact exercise. Aim for at least 30 minutes of walking most days of the week. This is my non-negotiable every day. So important for my well-being and my mood, and how to start the day.
    • Running: Running is a great way to get your heart rate up and burn calories. If you’re new to running, start slowly and gradually increase your distance and speed over time. You might be surprised how running can get your juju moving!
    • Dancing: Dancing is a fun and social way to get some exercise. Find a dance class you enjoy or put on your favorite music and dance around your living room or go out rock n’rolling. Always! I’ve been dancing since I was 7, and for those of you who aren’t familiar, I run a global bellydance company and enjoy the group styling of this dance, plus the sensual, exotic, feminine energy this evokes. (Global Caravan Tribal Bellydance). But I love all kinds of dancing including country line dancing, and meditative movement.
    • Yoga: Yoga is a great way to improve flexibility, strength, and balance. There are many different types of yoga classes, so find one that’s right for you.
    • Pilates: Pilates is a low-impact exercise that focuses on core strength, flexibility, and balance. Pilates can be done on a mat or with specialized equipment. Gotta keep that core strength as that is were we move from, our own power and creative center.
  • Gym workouts: with machines and weight training and cardio… I just love going to the gym. I love being in my body

Listen to Your Body

 A little at a time, One step at a time…just take the first step. 

Don’t forget…it’s important to listen to your body when you’re exercising. If you’re feeling pain, stop and rest. Don’t push yourself too hard, especially if you’re new to exercise. Start slowly and gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts over time.

Moving your body is one of the most important things you can do for your overall health and well-being. So find something you enjoy and make it a regular part of your life. Your body will thank you for it! 

And you’ll step into your mid-life and even your cronedom with way more ease, joy, and a body that moves with you…
