The Whole30 chill is upon me, and I’m relaxed around food, which is a blessing. I’m doing lots of cycling these days as well, which is contributing to the sense of self-efficacy that is crucial to carrying out a stringent dietary plan like this. See, I read a while back that bicycling strengthens the 3rd chakra.
The 3rd chakra, located in the solar plexus, relates to willpower, self-esteem, and self-actualization—essentially, the ability to get shit done. Here are 3 ways cycling benefits the 3rd chakra.
- It gets you out into the sunshine (which fuels this yellow-loving chakra).
- Bicycling challenges you to face your limits and overcome them, strengthening both your legs and your 3rd chakra’s ability to help you endure challenges later.
- Bicycling enhances your core muscles, physically strengthening the chakra’s home territory.
