Pre-Planning for the Therapeutic Fitness Challenge

When starting a new activity, it's helpful to be more mindful to avoid injury (in addition to checking in with your trusted health advisor). Here are questions to ask yourself about your activities: 
  • How do I feel today?
  • What activities from yesterday/today were particularly helpful?
  • What activities from yesterday/today might have exacerbated my symptoms?
  • How will I modify or replace those activities if they come up again?
Please print this page so these questions are handy. Whether you like to journal or not, please include these questions in your daily observations.

If you are prone to injury when you exercise, you might consider the course I taught on Understanding and Healing from Soft Tissue Injuries. It includes two hours of information, plus questions and answers, and an audio yoga practice.
