A Workout to Help You Get Unstuck

I have a another announcement and a special GIFT for you today. (Pssst, it’s a FREE workout. You are gonna love it! So keep reading!)

Today is my birthday and it’s always fun to GIVE on your own day. (That said, I will gladly accept your good birthday wishes and would love your thoughts on the workout below.

First, my second big announcement….

There is finally a BOOK in the works!!

I am proud and extremely honored to announce that my book will be published by Hay House Publishing, which was started by the mother of all affirmations and one of my favorite authors, Louise Hay.

Hay House has been responsible for books written by the beloved Wayne Dyer, Christiane Northrup, Marianne Williamson, and my friend, Kris Carr.

(Speaking of Kris Carr, keep an eye on your inbox next week! I’m JUMPING out of my seat to share something special from her, just for you!)

It was a bit of a long road to get this book out into the right hands.

You may remember me talking about my book proposal almost two years ago. Yes, two years!

I slogged through it.

I resisted writing.

I busied myself with other things, knowing this one was important. Isn’t it crazy how we do that?

Isn’t it funny how we do that?

I felt stuck much of the time while working on it.

Do you ever feel that way?

But, then, at some point, I gained clarity.

I knew where I wanted to go go with the book and finished the proposal. Once that happened, the deal actually came together in a matter of weeks and was completely smooth sailing!

So to that I say, sometimes timing is everything!

But, I also want to say this:

Just because you feel stuck, it doesn’t mean you are standing still. 

Sometimes ya gotta just keep pluggin’ away.

I am excited to dive deeper into my philosophy on movement, mantras and mindfulness and the power these elements have to transform your entire life when used together.

I can’t wait to share more as I write the book. I will likely be reaching out to you to find out if there is anything you MUST see in there.

Ok, now on to YOUR free gift / workout!

It’s about getting unstuck.

The thing is, Gorgeous, sometimes we just don’t feel like doing ‘it.’

Whatever ‘it’ is. (Like me writing my book proposal.)

Maybe we are not super pumped about anything. Or we are having a hard time finding our groove.

I find that moving during this time, just to get the energy flowing is good. SO…

I made you a short, 5 minute movement video, that you can do from wherever you are!

Here is what one Shrinker had to say:

“Just finished!! This is exactly what I needed! I felt so blah. I’ll be doing this again later to keep energy flowing. Thank you for doing these! They make a big difference.” -Marcia

Who is going to try it? Do it right now!

If you do, my only request is that you leave a comment below and let me know what you think!

Promise you will do that?

And if you decide you want more of these, I urge you to take a look at the Shrink Session program. We have a whole bunch of 5 minute workouts in there just like this!

Ok, I have another announcement coming in a few weeks. In the meantime, keep an eye out for something special from Kris Carr, a.k.a. The Unicorn Green Juice Goddess.

    Happy Birthday!! Thank you so much for sharing this video. There’s something so magical about your exercises. They are so effective but gentle at the same time. Everytime when I feel really tired and stuck with stiff muscles, your workouts are the only form of exercise I feel like doing because they don’t only affect the body but the mind as well. And I always feel good after them. Sometimes after a workout you feel exhausted but after yours I only feel better. And I definitely love these short videos! Thank you for the amazing job that you do!

  23. Rosa says:

    Happy Birthday! Thank you for the gift! I took some of that really easy because I’m coming off of a big neck spasm where my neck was literally stuck:) It was an excellent set of movements for feeling out that area and bringing the blood flow back in. Thank you so much for sharing it!

  24. Venetia Makshanoff says:

    Really got the blood flowing and heart pumping.
    Thanks. Linda

  31. Martha says:

    Erin, you’re seriously the BEST!!! I needed this more than air itself this morning!! I’m venturing to finally put 20 years worth of music into a cd and to say that I feel daunted is the understatement of the century. SO many tears flowed from doing this with you, and with those tears flowed the courage and energy and love to keep moving forward! Please don’t ever ever ever take it down (pretty please), I’m gonna be using it every morning before I start my work! 🙂 Wishing I could give you the biggest birthday hug of all time!!!

  35. Jessica G. says:

    I did this right before going to work on my writing project for the day. I can totally relate to the resistance that comes up like you said. Now I feel like I just got some new energy and a big a breath of fresh air. I am ready to dive in! Thanks for all your amazing workouts!

  36. Sherry S. says:

    Happy Birthday, Erin! 🙂 Thank you for all that you do, all the positive workouts and warm energetic encouragement that lifts us up. <3

  37. Cathy says:

    Erin, this seemed to be exactly what I needed. I did it as a warm up for my more intense workout and unexpectedly cried……something must have been stuck indeed :), so I set the intention to keep letting whatever loosened up to keep moving when I did my next workout. Thank you beautiful one!!!

  38. Colleen Moss says:

    Luved the 5 min. movement workout Erin! Just what I needed after a long work day! The Energy is flowing! Happy Birthday to you!

  43. barbara says:

    Wonderful and just what I needed. I’m in a tough time in my life – muddling through an ugly divorce. A five minute do anywhere workout is a great way to keep my spirits healthy.

  44. Ellen says:

    First of all, Happy Birthday!
    I LOVE your workouts. These five minute ones are simply wonderful. As my sandwich generation takes care of both our kids and elderly parents- you have no idea of what 5 minutes of movement, and time dedicated to myself can do.. I am on my 3rd hospital visit this year- so, Icdrop off the kids and then go to the hospital for the day . Then pick up the kids, do supper, etc.
    Do you know that I do your 5 minute workouts, when i can,in the family room? I go to get ice, take five minutes and continue on with the day.I think I am going to start these at night, It is the best way to clear my head.
    Thank you so much.

  45. Kayla says:

    Happy Birthday Erin! Thank you so much for this workout – it was exactly what I needed! Feeling unstuck and ready to move forward! Thank you very much! 😀

  55. Jessi says:

    I SO needed this. I found myself smiling the whole second half. I was in a crappy state five minutes earlier. I feel lighter, better, thank you!

  56. Marie Odom says:

    Erin, I am a 75 year old woman with many health challenges, but I did try your 5 opening exercise and did what I could. I enjoyed it even with the limitations my body places on me. Thanks for sharing these with me. I will try to work on the free 5 minute exercises you shared. Yes, I did consult my doctor about exercise, and he is encouraging me in it!

  57. Marcia says:

    Happy belated Birthday! Loved the workout. I’m feeling energized. Thank you!

  58. Aleksandra says:

    Hi! Happy birthday!!!
    Thank you for this – I keep checking my e-mail a day later (or two..), so it is a late afternoon, I just got up and did it! Felt great, and much needed. It is only five minutes but I felt activated and refreshed.
    Thank you again!

  59. olive says:

    Thank you for your birthday gift to us. It’s amazing that 5 minutes is all it takes to move
    the blah energies. Much appreciation!

  60. Tracy says:

    Happy belated Birthday to you, Erin! I rarely do aerobic activity like this. The most I do is walking, but today I missed the walking. I got to do this instead and loved it! I’ll be doing it lots more. Thank you!

  61. bella says:

    energizing as you promised.
    Thank you for sharing this.

    Hope your birthday was great.

  62. Eugenia says:

    I loved it, I loved it, I loved it!!!!! Sometimes you just need some nice movements to keep the energy moving. This workout can be done at the office, in the morning before leaving to work, when you get home at night… everywhere.
    Also it made me feel connected to my body, helped to loose control of my mind and felt the movements were kind of sensual, so helped me to feel more sexy. Girl, this is a winner!!!
    Thank you Erin for this beautiful workout, keep them coming 🙂

  63. Vikki says:

    It’s amazing what just 5 minutes can do! Thank you Erin for gifting us on your birthday – hope it was wonderful! And a big congratulations on your book deal!! Hay House is one of my favorites as well. Can’t wait till it’s released! Many blessings to you 💜

  69. Becky says:

    Thank you, Erin

  70. CS says:

    Belated Happy Birthday Erin – mazel too and many happy, meaningful years.

    Just cleaning out my emails and discovered this little treasure! Thanks for getting me moving and off my butt. Feeling the energy flow was awesome!

  71. Jane Parmenter says:

    Hi Erin, Thank you so much. I hadn’t had a chance to check the workout out but did it today just after doing one of other workouts. I’ve been going through some stress and had actually been feeling really sad and stuck. This brought me such relief that I had tears in my eyes after doing it. I’ll do it again later. Much love to you!

  72. Sofia says:

    Happy birthday dear Erin! <3

    I live in Melbourne and the weather has just turned to winter, I am struggling with the cold and the evenings becoming dark so early.
    I did this work out as soon as I got home and I am so glad I did!

    Thanks Erin- you rock 😉
