The Pyramid is a simple way to visually show how emotional and physical health are improved together. It’s the core of the Movement Rx philosophy of self-care…and it works.
These self-assessments include movement function (pictured here), emotional energy reserves, pain, and work health.
There’s no getting around it. How you feel physically and emotionally is based on what you do with your muscles, what you pay attention to, what you put in your body, and the choices that impact your rest.
The creators of the Mindfulness & Movement Experience Journal are individuals who really understand struggle, chaos, and how to stay calm in the midst of any situation.
Those creators are Commander Jon Macaskill (Ret.) and Dr. Theresa Larson, DPT a former Marine-Officer-turned Doctor of Physical Therapy and author of the book WARRIOR.
Jon Macaskill is a former Navy SEAL Commander, and through his career led a variety of dangerous missions in hotspots like Somalia, Panama, Iraq and Afghanistan. While the life of the Navy SEAL has been glorified through books and movies, there’s an unseen truth behind the scenes. Tremendous loss, grief, shame, stress, PTSD, and physical wounds are just a starting list of the toll their careers take.
Jon struggled with that toll for years, and when it was suggested he try mindfulness, he laughed. Hard.
But over time he tried it, stopped, tried it some more, stopped again, and finally got into a habit of mindfulness practice. Then he got good at it, and it was the answer he’d been looking for all along.
Because of how mindfulness has helped Jon regain control of his thoughts, emotions and responses, he knew it could help so many others. So he studied and practiced for years and now is bringing his approach to mindfulness to you.
Dr. T, as she’s widely known, is a musculoskeletal health and fitness expert, TEDx speaker, author and former USMC Officer. After losing her mother to cancer at 10 years old, she developed into a young woman who held herself to a standard of perfection – as an All-Conference D1 college athlete, as a national fitness competition champion, and as a US Marine.
But all these accomplishments masked a gnawing and growing chasm of anxiety and imposter syndrome, and an increasing sense of feeling out of control. After a particularly high-risk night convoy in Iraq, she knew she needed to find real help in order to be the leader her 80 Marines needed. However, asking for help led to her discharge from the Marine Corps, for which she felt confused, ashamed and a failure.
Knowing that physical health and movement helped her regain calm and focus, she embarked on a career in musculoskeletal health. Her experiences and expertise led her to the specialty health field of ‘mindful movement’, where she has become a thought leader.
In addition to treating and teaching the elements of mindful movement to 1,000s of people across 4 continents, Dr. Larson also takes her own medicine, practicing mindful fitness as a tool to down-regulate her mind and body.
Sometimes you know you shouldn't trust yourself to make changes on your own.
We get it. We're human, and accountability to others helps us stay on track. Plus, we all have blind spots that others can see.
