Life By Okinawa: An Alternative Fitness Regime

life by okinawa

With the start of a new year comes change. Most everyone looks at the new year as a start date for something – maybe not necessarily a new years resolution but a date to make some positive changes in their life. While we can all do this anytime, this seems to be a very good start date for the majority.

For whatever reason, or better-stated a multitude of reasons, my start date for change was April 25th, 2016. I suppose the date isn’t as significant because after that point is when I made small changes in my life for a better me sitting here today.

I can’t say I’m a gym- fanatic (still haven’t joined one) or that my treadmill doesn’t collect dust when I ignore it like I have the full month of December, because I’ve learned that health and wellness is about more than posting a sweaty selfie on Instagram. It’s about treating your body well, listening to it, and making good food choices (well, most of the time…)

That’s why this video series from Life, by Okinawa caught my eye. In the video below, Daniel – a fashion blogger from Dusseldorf, Germany, who has a passion for fitness visits Okinawa and learns about an alternative fitness regime from a local resident. It’s an intimate and fun look at a different aspect of healthy living (and one I’d love to try someday!)

Whatever your catalyst for change in 2017, whatever your method, I think it’s important to remember that it’s about moving forward and doing what works for you to make you a better version of yourself. Sending positive thoughts your way for whichever way you choose to live better in 2017!
