Mentastics is an invented word, created by Dr. Milton Trager to explain the mind/body connection. Mental (mind) plus Gymnastics (body movements) equals Mentastics.

Mentatsics are a tool to consciously re-pattern through movement. When we engage in new movements, the mind is interested because it loves novelty. Repeating a new pattern of movement builds new pathways in the nervous system allowing change to occur. Movement becomes easier, and the mind learns to pause.

This blog shares some of the 60-second Mentastics that I use as a part of my day to day activities. I encourage you to read the post (which should take a minute or less), and consider how you might incorporate these or other conscious movement minutes into your own routine.
