These last two years have certainly been a challenge for most of us in some way.
I’ve had to keep a close eye on my mental health at times, and know many others who’ve been the same.
It’s hard not to be affected by what’s been going on in the world.
With challenges however, always come learnings.
I’ve always known movement helps my mental health, but it’s been highlighted even more recently.
Movement, especially Pilates and Yoga, helps us to get out of our head, where our worry, stress and anxiety lives, and turns our focus back into our body.
This keeps us more in the present moment.
It also helps reduce stress hormones and release more happy hormones.

Love your body
Have you ever said you hated your body? I don't recall directly say it to myself, but I certainly behaved that way in a couple seasons of my life. I would not only exercise with the goal to lose weight, but I also suffered from bulimia. During those times, I was not...
I just finished listening to Emma’s podcast on The Purpose Effect. It did take 3 days, due to interruptions – even though I am retired life gets in the way! I’d like to thank Emma for being so open about mental health and self care. I wish i had met her years ago, when I didn’t know how to do that. Until recently, and even now, people can be so unintentionally hurtful and non-supportive about these issues. With a background in youth education, it is my hope that more and more our educators will focus on life skills such as mental health awareness and care, from the youngest all through the ages. Thank you Emma for sharing your wisdom so gently with all of us.
This means so much to get this message Marsha 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and also taking the time to listen to the podcast.
I’m really glad to be talking about these topics, as they are so important and so many struggle through thinking they are alone. I will be making it more of a focus moving forward as I believe more people will start exercising if they new it was helping them mentally as well. sending you so much love xxx
Thanks for your response. I am a “recovering mental health client” and appreciate all you do as well as talking to you about it. Stay safe——M
