Active Nation Day is on September 28th. That is THIS Sunday! What will you do for Active Nation Day? I am going to commit to running a 5K.
Have you heard about Active Nation Day? If not, you may want to watch the video below… it is brought to us by Lorna Jane. The inspirational sportswear brand that I am so in love with these days. I would own a ton of their tops if I had all the money in the world. They serve more than one purpose… yes, they are easy to “move” in for an actual workout, but they also inspire me to believe in myself or go the extra mile. You can see the inspirational tanks I am talking about by clicking here.
I know, I am going all lovey-dovey on Lorna Jane with this post, but I really do love all that this brand stands for. The brand really does GET it. Lorna Jane promotes a Move, Nourish, and Believe lifestyle. You may see people refer to this as “MNB”. So now you know what that stands for if you see it!
As a wellness professional, I too strongly believe in these three elements to healthy living. Most of the time, I nourish my body with wholesome and healthy foods. I choose foods that help me prevent diseases, keep me feeling and looking good, and have the least amount of ingredients possible. The ingredients list is huge for me. Now, don’t get me wrong, I do make room for treats too. I make time to move my body in some form or fashion every day. I don’t subscribe to one form of exercise. I crave variety and truly enjoy mixing up my physical activity. I currently enjoy running, walking, HIIT workouts, pure barre, body weight strength moves, yoga, PiYo, and dance. I believe in myself. I thrive off of loving myself just as I am. Strong self esteem and a positive outlook are VERY important to keeping a healthy mind and body. In fact, my favorite quote is this by Jack Kerouac… “Be in love with your life. Every minute of it.”
If you are app savvy and like apps that keep you moving, Lorna Jane did just come out with their very own app. You can view the Itunes version by clicking here. As I mentioned above, I love inspirational words so my favorite part of the app is the “Believe” part. You can hit refresh and view a new inspirational quote anytime you need one.
That’s the creator (Lorna Jane Clarkson herself) in the pic above. Isn’t she beautiful?! Anyway, all that to say… I love the brand Lorna Jane and I hope you find as much inspiration from the brand as I do. Most importantly, I hope that you will do something fun and full of movement this Sunday in celebration of Active Nation Day. YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!
What is your favorite way to move?
