Welcome to the first week of joyful movement. While we encourage you to find and stick to activities that you truly enjoy, we’ve compiled a 21-day guide to help you figure out what that could actually entail.
Throughout the week, we’ve also worked in “rest days,” which are exactly what they sound like. They’re days when you should take a break and reflect on the activities you did earlier in the week. What surprised you, what bored you, and what would you try again? Could these activities be classified as "joyful movements" for you? Then there are your "free days" sprinkled throughout the week, which are there for you to pick any activity you’d like to do.
Here are the first week of exercise suggestions. Enjoy — really!
Joyful Movement is part of Clean Slate, Refinery29’s 21-day course filled with new ways to think about food, exercise, and stress relief. Sign up here to get nutritious recipes, fun physical activities, and some suggestions to beat stress that don’t require meditation.
