Meaningful Movement

You are most welcome to MovingTherapy. I hope you will find this website useful in adding value to your life, and the lives of others, as simply as possible. Life is demanding and complex and we seldom have little time to spare, especially for ourselves.

Perhaps now, as our lives are impacted by the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have more time to take stock of what matters most to us. Our health above all, and the resilience to carry on in uncertainty, is paramount. MovingTherapy, designed many yeras ago and regularly updated, is more relevant than ever as we come to depend on online aids to living well. Taking responsibilty for ourselves is the way forward, giving us both hope and confidence. A sense of control over our destiny is a fundamental aspect of a resilient, meaningful and fulfilling life. Indeed the elixir of life. 

We know we need to be fit but exercise is often seen as a chore and we drag ourselves to do it. It need not be like this. Through normal daily activities, I hope to show that a healthy body and healthy mind is within reach. fitness can be fun with meaningful movement as the key.  

I'm Margaret Coles and I would like to think that as you move through the pages of my website, we are having a conversation about your health and well-being, something of the utmost importance to you and to those you touch in life. I'm hoping to share my knowledge and so enable you to care for yourself and others.

A good place to start is to ask a question.

Why move?

Your body in all its parts, including the mind, is your most precious possession. By means of your body you live out your life for better or worse. The life in your body is expressed and maintained by movement. Life and movement go hand in hand. Without movement there is no life.

Look around you.

Nature is a continual hive of activity. Buds unfold, birds fly overhead.Our hearts beat and our lungs breathe. Nerve impulses flash to and from the brain. Our muscles contract and our joints move.

Man is a majestic being, made in the image of God. He is more than the dust of the earth and has a living soul. No where is this seen more clearly than in the mourning for a departed or missing person. How can their lives be extinguished or forgotten? The agony of loss is demonstrated across our world every day, in one way or another. Why be concerned at the suffering of others, especially children, if death is a simple snuffing out of a candle? 

Together with Paul, we cry out 'O grave, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting? 

Hope of another existence, a better life, is what drives much of humanity. This is not a false hope as it has been implanted in man by the God who made him. A day is coming when the Son of Man, as the Prince of Peace is known, will indeed return to make all things new. 

I have studied these matters for many decades, in parallel with my professional studies,  and am growingly aware that He is at the doors, and will soon appear in glorious majesty to make all things new. This is a blog with short reflections on this subject. 

From the sublime to the ridiculous, life is comical too. 

Perhaps Tam 'O Shanter is a friendly mascot keepiing trouble at bay!
