The question at hand […]

Movement Card #33 in The Conscious Living Wisdom Cards (Special Moms’ Edition)
Today I drew the Movement Card.
Kids need to get out and move. They have an inordinate amount of energy, and moving helps them to burn it off. It is also healthy for them to be outside, getting air and getting exercise.
Get involved this weekend and go for a walk, a hike or run around the yard and play tag. Physical movement can also help energetic movement.
Here is my text from The Conscious Living Wisdom Cards (Special Moms’ Edition) for additional support. Do you have your deck yet?
Movement is essential for your life to flow. If your job entails sitting, be sure to get up and move throughout the day. Not only will this be good for your body, but it will also help move energy. If things have seemed “stuck” lately, get your body moving, and life movement will follow. Movement can also help you work through emotions and resolve problems that have your mind whirling. Whether you take a brisk walk, do yoga or Pilates or simply dance around the house, adding movement into your day will infuse your life with a greater sense of flow.
For Your Child
Perpetual motion is a good description for the movement of a child. He runs to burn off energy. Most people know that, but don’t stop to think what that really means. Energy can be overwhelming to children. They are pure receptors of energy, whether it comes from internal emotional or mental stimulation or from absorbing the dynamics around them. Movement helps them release the energies they collect and experience. The type of movement children most often express is full steam ahead. Try introducing your child to different types of movement. Slow, fluid movement helps calm and soothe and connect the body, mind and heart; intentional stomping helps release fear, frustration and anger. Movement can also be a great way to celebrate and live joyously.
