Feeling Stuck? Break Through Creative Blocks with This 15-Minute Workout

Ever feel like there is a giant roadblock in the way of your creativity? I'm not necessarily talking about "traditional" creativity (like painting or sculpting). Maybe it's simply writing a difficult email, or completing a project at work. We can all get a little stuck sometimes, which is why I created today's workout.

The workout focuses on activating the second chakra, located right above the pubic bone. This is where your creativity is stored. Now, if you're not "into that stuff" no worries. This is also where your core muscles live, muscles that typically go to sleep throughout the day as we sit, slump, and slouch at a desk, driving in the car, or lounging on the couch. No matter what school of thought you believe, there is some stagnant energy floating around in that region, and this workout is exactly what you need to flush it out and tone up the core muscles in the process. Give it a try!

BodyLove Studio is Here! + A Total Body Workout

I've decided to try something new, and I can't wait to hear what you think. I'm going to start adding a weekly workout post every wednesday. But, after spending the last six months thinking about putting this out there, I knew I wanted it to be a little bit different. 

If you know me, you know I love a good workout video. But, what I don't love is how they inspire women to workout by tapping into those deep-seeded insecurities most of us have. "Belly Fat Buster" "Get Rid Saddle Bags" "Bye Bye Back Fat" or "See ya Later Cellulite." 

Look, I get it. I would be lying if I said I never thought about the superficial benefits of exercise. But what I've found after over 10 years in this industry is that if you keep talking to your body in this negative way ("I hate my thighs, my belly, my arms...") you will never achieve the results you want. 

This notion inspired me to create a virtual fitness studio, BodyLove Studio, where the philosophy is simple: show up to do the work. The purpose of these workouts is not to fight your body, it's to help show you just what your body is capable of so you leave with love and appreciation for everything that vessel can do for you. Check out the first Total Body Workout, below. 

After you're done, please leave a comment below and let me know what you thought! What other types of workouts are you looking for? If you like this workout, make sure you subscribe to the BodyLove Studio Youtube Channel.
