It's an extraordinary thing, the feeling that comes with empowering yourself by expanding your knowledge base.
As they say, when you know better, you do better.
The way I see it, we're all souls having human experiences, and when we learn more about anything at all, it widens our worldview. And when we learn more about something that's directly related to upping our self-care game?
Well, look out world...
Learning how to better care for yourself is always worth your time, and one way to do that is to become familiar with the names and specific functions of your muscles.
It's one of the very first steps of cultivating any meaningful relationship, learning a name, so knowing what each body part is called is a positive step towards a friendly relationship with your body.
Additionally, in order to have a full appreciation of why it's important to take care of ourselves, we need to understand what exactly we're caring FOR.
That's why, every time we add a workout to a Soul Fitness program or the Soul Fitness blog, we include which muscle and/or muscle groups are being strengthened.
That's also why we've created this always-growing, easy-to-reference index of those same muscles.
As we continue to add and diversify our workouts, we'll continue to update this post.
Soul Fitness Muscle Index
Hooray for knowledge that strengthens your self-care!
It's simple, really: the more you get to know the parts and pieces that comprise your beautiful body, the more likely you'll be to cultivate a loving friendship with that body.
And THAT is the ultimate in self-care.
