We need to take the time to unwind our body and mind or we really can’t move as much as we want when we’re awake - and not just during our SUPERCHARGED® dance breaks and other fitness endeavors, but in every facet of our lives.
Not enough sleep, constantly worrying, and doing-too-much-too-fast catches up to us eventually - and then quickly saps our energy. To be SUPERCHARGED® we gotta Recharge, again and again. This might mean doing those stretches we mentioned in the must-watch video above - or a host of other awesome stretches out there.
One of the most profound ways to recharge is a personal MEDITATION practice.
Embarking upon your own meditation practice doesn’t mean you have to start wearing yoga-pants 24/7, light copious amounts of incense, and only eat organic tofu.
Meditation can be as flexible as you want it to be.
You can incorporate any wisdom or religious tradition out there.
