fibroCISE© Meets Moticise
by Meshea Crysup, fibroLIFE©
I have used the term “fibroCISE©” for over ten years to identify the concept of incorporating exercise with other activities. When you have #Fibromyalgia (#FMS #Fibro #ChronicPain) it is common to have to pick between exercising and doing other things such as cleaning house, playing with your children, grandchildren, or furry children, grocery shopping, yardwork, socializing, etc. fibroCISE© recognizes that we actually do exercise while doing other activities and we should give ourselves credit for that! It also encourages us to re-think the things we do in a way that puts the “active” back into an “activity”, to increase the amount of exercise we are getting while simply doing something we want or need to do.
On Twitter, a few weeks ago, I came across Sonia Satra and Moticise. A lady after my own heart, she has combined “motivating” with “exercise”! A genius combo-term! After all, how often do we discuss how the endorphins released from exercising peps us up, helps with depression, revitalizes us, etc.? I do not mind admitting, I kicked myself for not thinking of it! I may not have thought of it, but I am certainly excited about it!
A Moticise DVD is available. If you are a relatively healthy person, it is awesome! However, if you have #Fibromyalgia #FMS #Fibro #ChronicPain, it is a bit too aggressive. (Never fear! Of course I have suggested to Sonia that we could team up on one that would be more fibroDOABLE©!) There is a participant that is modifying the exercises, doing them with less intensity, but that is still too much for me. I LOVE the motivational aspect of the DVD however, so I listen to it while just walking in place and other simple, in-home-walking exercises.
Moticise also has an audio product to listen to anywhere while you do any type of exercise. Take it on a walk, listen while you work out at the gym, or even clean house and fold laundry while working on a more positive mindset and setting goals! If you are LIVING a fibroLIFE©, this is an awesome product, reasonably priced, and well worth the money and your time!
As my regular followers know, I do not frequently recommend products, I do not do paid reviews or endorsements, and I never recommend something that I have not tried. I really do own both of these products. I really do use them. I really do LOVE them. For those with Fibromyalgia, or a similar health problem, if you want to pick one to try, I recommend starting with the audio version.
This product has become a positive, meaningful, and impactful part of my daily fibroLIFE©. I look forward to hearing about your fibroCISE© experience with Moticise!
