People ask me all the time what I do for exercise. I want to answer this very honestly, because exercise can be a difficult topic for many people.
Do you have a difficult relationship with exercise?
Exercise can bring up a lot of funky feelings. You may be really self-conscious about your athletic skills. Or you may be stuck in this story where you think you hate exercising. You might think exercise is something you “have” to do. You may think that if you don’t work out like Instagram fitness stars, you’re not doing it right.
I hope that by sharing my own exercise secret, I can help dispel some of those harmful ideas and stories.
How I exercise

My #1 exercise secret: Move in some way every day
My #1 exercise secret is to simply move in some way every day. That’s it. Move in some way every day. Some days I can get to that SoulCycle class. Some days I can do that 90 minutes of Kundalini. But most days all I have time for is 20 minutes of Pilates. If the weather is nice, I also love to walk in nature or walk around the city while running errands.
I’ve made the commitment to move in some way every day. Moving every day doesn’t mean that you have to do a 45-minute workout every morning. (Though if that is something that serves you, do it.) It means moving. Don’t put pressure on yourself if you make the commitment to move. See it as a spiritual act. See movement as joyful, and as a way to connect with your body.
Moving in any way can get me back into my body, lift my energy and reignite my connection to spirit.
Move in whatever way feels good
So that’s it. Commit to moving in some way every day if it serves you to do so. Take off the pressure. Move in whatever way feels GOOD!
Take a walk.
Go for a swim.
Do 10 minutes of yoga online.
Play with your kids.
Try a dance class.
Go for a bike ride.
Have fun with it. If you like to sweat, then sweat! Sweating is a beautiful way to detoxify.
I hope this serves you and helps to shift your perspective on exercise. Just move in some way every day.
