We all seem to be getting busier these days. The demands of work and family life can certainly take their toll, and finding time to destress can be all too difficult. In theory, we all understand the importance of self-care and the necessity of finding a little time to unwind and focus on ourselves.
However, the reality is that all too often, we find other things getting in the way of this – a constant demand on our time that sees self-care being the thing that gets put to one side.
Pilates is a great form of exercise that can easily be fitted into any busy lifestyle. For those individuals who cannot get to a regular class, the option of doing Pilates in your own home and at a time that suits you is a fantastic option, and my online classes and Pilates videos have been put together carefully with this in mind.
Finding a calm inner space
Pilates offers you the opportunity and the space to connect back with your body and relax whilst restoring your mind. Stress can trigger several health conditions, such as high blood pressure, fatigue, trouble sleeping and several more serious issues. Relaxation is essential for good health, and Pilates provides a reflective and calming approach that can help you to renew your energy and destress.
When you take this time for yourself to destress, you are not only helping to improve your health and mental well-being you are also providing yourself with a greater strength to deal with the day-to-day issues of a busy lifestyle.
Pilates offers you a wide range of benefits and can help to improve your muscle strength and core as well. This can help you improve your posture and alleviate any back issues that you may be struggling with.
Taking time to improve your health and well-being
Far from being a selfish act of taking a short period of time a couple of times a week for self-care, Pilates can help you in more ways than many people realise. Improving your stress levels can help you to get more enjoyment out of life, so this really is time well spent.
It is important to remember that you really should never be too busy to take time for yourself, no matter how small an amount of time that may be, and Pilates is a fantastic exercise that can be fitted into any spare time that you might have.
