Segment 4 - Moving to Happiness - Movement 1

So another way we're going to do it, and we're going to come, we're going to move a little bit right now, they're looking to come back. We'll talk some more, but I'd love to do right now is invite the audience at home on our audience here to get it, we're going to move, and then we're going to see how we feel after we move. The proof is in the pudding, right? Chocolate pudding, especially so I'm letting you take some time if you at home take a shoot off my invitation if you want work, invite youto call your buddies over. Moving in community is more joyful is more beneficial for our happiness, so can I invite you guys to stand up? So the only thing I need you don't would not do anything crazy right now, but I just invite you to have enough space to do this with your arms just do that anyway, and then everyone at home just to this that's called the power pose and did you know whether you're with people can see or not see wants the victories find that when people went across the finish li...

ne, thank you. So just by doing this actually elevates all these chemicals and hormones inside of you to make you feel more powerful, so how we doing on home, you ready? Yes all right if we could have music and I'm actually not gonna talk very much for the next five minutes back thank goodness all right open up the feet good kind of wiggle your toes shake it out take a deep breath and hi it's your neighbor just exhale down way to think is the brass breathing exhale and and how did you reach up think in hell gratitude exhale a little faster we're going to inhale that's from the energy and push it down I can't wait slowly float one side on the other side on again wait you just think of your brat nice and fluid going faster here we go way back together just wait that's outside aside I want to see everybody out there doing this cubicles across the nation that was the last time we're gonna keep going side to side pressed a little tap get I just lightly on your shoulder it's actually energy wakes you up not too hard twenty bruises here get beautiful let's take a deep breath in again ground for your feet lift a lower slow lunch beautiful this is little taps right here waking it up is that one more time at home if you happen to hit a coworker's hand shake it introduce yourself get slowly little tap right you conclude is beating the drum now I want to circle your arms right here just out beautiful think I'm growing about two inches taller nice I'll go bring my feet in and then I'm gonna step out that is hard to get bring it in how beautiful do that again last time I had this vision of a like do this across the country and you know what not happened at like nine fifty two take a deep breath in right here theo energy half way little clothe the energy together get out one more deep breath and slow it down one last time deep breath and just lunges right here how do you feel like how you guys sitting at home beautiful just ease it up will sit and then just shake it out oh, and then take a seat give yourself a high five to the person next you go you're awesome you're awesome you're awesome beautiful so what we're seeing here, all I wanted to do is get up and get moving for many of us were working at home whether where our photographer we're working on our etsy store, whatever it is we get stuck when we sit we get stuck in a ruminating thoughts we get stuck in our body and many times we don't look to movement as a source off becoming more creative, waking up my energy, waking up my brain we kind of married it into this juan funnel off when most of you will exercise why do you think they exercise because they have well some things you do when your doctors told you you need to exercise for your life absolutely because we have two versus we want to and I love my industry but we've been really good at telling you what you should be doing for us is asking you what do you want to be doing? What are your strength? So when we move of your movie if my goal is I know I'm moving for my mood my breath, my brain, my creativity, my relationships I'm looking at it as like such a positive influence on my life I look at it as something that adds to my life versus takes away as a celebration off my body on my life versus a punishment so if we can reframe the why behind the workout I believe we can take giant steps to help people move into the bodies there are healthy and live longer and happier lives yes, we have this great we just have this great comment come in from the creativity says thinks I just realized that what I think of as exercise or what I need to dio I dread it I need to shift my focus tio it's my time to relax and appreciate I'll look forward to it and then crave it right right yeah crave it thank you for that and again it's all about the motivation the power ofthe thought when we look at an ex and I actually I use the word movement. If you've noticed much more than exercise, because exercise has kind of become a four letter word for many of us, and we talk about learning to fail, we'll fail, tto learn. But when it comes to exercise, so many people I know and I've met around the world, they just feel like I'm just not fit enough to get fit. I'm a failure at fitness. No, you're not. You haven't found your flow that we're going to talk about. You haven't found the things that you love. You haven't found the focus and the meaning and sense of purpose in your workout that can you concur, carry into your everyday life.

I decided to do something just for me and I am so glad I did. I am completely enjoying Moving to Happiness. You said what made you happy in the past and I thought of my horse. What makes you happy now but I couldn't think of anything associated with that. Than the woman said "Just breath" and I immediately thought of nature. Walks in the park and the quietness. So you could hear the birds are see the deer. The leaves crunching underfoot in the Fall. Not far along in the course and don't have the book but oh am I enjoying it. Thank you so much Petra.

Overall, this was an awesome class. So much good content, so well taught, nice contributions from the live audience (which does not always happen). If I was assigning a grade, I would give Petra an A+ for a truly well put together class. She also did a good job of summarising the research in this area. : )


Life changing course. The best 11 hours you can gift yourself or others. Thank you Petra and CreativeLive.
