I decided to start this week off on a positive note. What better way to kick off a Monday than by sharing an organization that is working to promote self-confidence and self-expression in young women?
The Movemeant Foundation, a San Francisco-based non-profit, supports local programs that use health and fitness as a means to empower and inspire. The organization works to remind us all of what we’re capable of, and to ignore the constant pressures that we feel on a daily basis to achieve perfection. They believe that through teaching women the value of their bodies and of movement, they can give them the tools they need to navigate an increasingly stressful and self-destructive day-to-day environment.
Raise your hand if that completely resonates with you!
For me, the oh-so-noble goals of this organization definitely hit home. I was an athlete from a young age and when I switched sports at the age of 12, I still distinctly remember my first brush with body dysmorphia. Throw in puberty, and let’s just say, it was a rough, and emotional, transition.
Are you interested in learning more about The Movemeant Foundation? Even better, do you want to get involved?
