At mindbodygreen, we believe that movement is an essential part of life. Movement, like food, can be its own form of medicine—it can connect us to the earth, to our community, and to ourselves. That's why we created Movement Cures, a video series that underscores our body's ability to heal itself through movement. From common aches and pains to the occasional (or chronic) bloating, we're asking experts for their best answers to our everyday woes and sharing Movement Cures that can help you feel better.

It's Sunday—which means we're on the brink of a brand-new week. And sometimes, no matter how much rest you've gotten over the weekend, overcoming Sunday scaries and powering through Monday can zap your energy real quick.

Fortunately, and perhaps counterintuitively, getting your body moving and your blood pumping can actually raise your energy levels (think people who work out in the morning but still manage to have pep all day long).

Check out the video below to watch sub-elite marathon runner and Flywheel instructor Emily Fayette demo her go-to low-energy move—the jumping jack!

There you have it—another example of how powerful movement can be. Did you know it can help you tackle bloating, menstrual cramps, and even brain fog? Check out all our Movement Cures here.
