Summer solstice arrived yesterday, and I along with my dedicated clientele are preparing for vacations and much-needed relaxation time. Unfortunately, vacations and time off can be a source of stress for my clients. When you've worked so hard to overcome so much, the idea of not having the equipment, space and time to do the exercises that help keep the body in balance can be worrisome. Especially when you've got into the new habit of doing corrective exercise to help restore posture, improve function and most importantly, eliminate chronic muscle and joint pain!
Frequently I get asked the following question:
"How do I keep up with my corrective exercises, and stay pain free while I'm out of town/on vacation?"
The biggest challenge we all face during summer or while traveling is losing sync with our normal routine. We're creatures of habit.
In my professional opinion and personal experience, I believe most of us don’t stick to our routine simply because we fail to plan for it. We are, after all, on vacation. It's so easy to let our routine go.
So I've put together 8 tips with practical ways you can maintain your corrective exercise progression to help you stay pain-free during the summer.
I'm absolutely positive there's many more tips you readers can add to this list, and I'd LOVE to have you share what works for you. Please leave a comment below or send me a message. Now get outside and enjoy your summer!
