Natural movement and dynamic aging. A career change story

Happiness is: moving with ease

These show notes give you some cliff notes as to what this episode is all about. This makes it easy for you to share with someone who you think should listen and, if any links or resources are mentioned in the conversation, they are popped in here for you.

In this episode we discuss

  • Mike’s challenge on facing the financial issue of leaving the security of a salary (and what happened to help shift the gears for him).
  • The work that Mike is doing today and what makes him happy.
  • The concepts of ‘natural movement’ and ‘dynamic aging’ and Mike’s ethos in how he works with his clients.
  • My own story of applying some of Mike’s teaching in my own life and my relationship with my body and how I move.

In this episode you will also get to hear Mike’s personal journey of career transition and how it was his wife and close family that really gave him the courage to want something different (and go for it).

Listen to your body’s responses, there is wisdom deep within

Sometimes your body knows better

These show notes give you some cliff notes as to what this episode is all about. This makes it easy for you to share with someone who you think should listen and, if any links or resources are mentioned in the conversation they popped here for you.

In this episode I talk about

  • How ill I really got, before I figured out that something needed to change
  • How a medical consultant’s weird diagnosis showed me that I was making myself ill, and that reconnecting with my body was the antidote
  • How today I use my body’s responses to things to know what decisions to make on a daily, weekly and monthly basis

My story is the reason why my business is called Live True. I help clients discover and make career and life choices that wholeheartedly align with who they are, what they really want and what they love the most. I support them in finding ways around the things that our minds tell us aren’t possible.

Quick ref to resources or links I mention

In this episode I talk about Martha Beck’s “Shackles on, Shackles off” approach to weighing up your body’s responses to things. Martha is the author of several memoirs and best-selling self-help books and she is also the coach I completed my coaching training with.

I thought I’d note the approach here in case you wanted to read it after listening:

The idea is to pay attention to whether your body’s physical response and reaction is shackles on or shackles off.

Shackles on means that you have a physical feeling of being contorted. It’s a feeling of being trapped, limited and uncomfortable. Some people experience a kind of heaviness within their physical body or a kind of recoiling. For me, it’s always in my chest area and it’s like I’m being squeezed and crushed.

Obviously, this is your body saying: NO.

Shackles off means that you feel physically light and open and free. It’s a feeling of an expansion or ease in your body. A lot of people report almost feeling joyful in their body and sometimes enlightened. Physically it feels like freedom.

This is a big thumbs-up and YES from your body.
