Can 8 Minutes of Movement Really Boost Joy?

Without reading any scientific papers, we intuitively know that we just feel better after moving. Humans are designed for motion interspersed with periods of rest. However, while activities like yoga, walking, or swimming may give us a boost of energy, are there specific exercises that will actually make you feel happy?

What activities not only crank up our heart rate, improve muscle strength and flexibility while also bringing us feelings of JOY?


Researchers have identified specific movements that exist across cultures that inspire joy.


What Coach Bev Discovered after doing the Joy Workout

I did my own study with an “n” of 1. I rated my joy feelings on a scale of 1-10 (and pulse) before doing these seven activities that each last for one minute. My joy rating was about a 3 before and it easily jumped up to an 8 during the movements and I couldn’t help but spontaneously smile. Plus, the glow continued afterward. Those 8 minutes of joy movement gave me the extra mental boost I needed to finish this blog post on a busy Monday morning,

Try it for yourself. Commit eight minutes out of your day to try this simple body joy workout. Invite your friends and family to compare their “joy” before and after doing these movements.

The American Diabetes Association recommends that people with prediabetes and diabetes get up and move every half hour. This joy workout offers a starting point to begin a new habit of moving more. Of course, individuals may need to modify some of the moves for safety and comfort. If doing it all at once is too much, a person could spread the workout throughout the day, doing one move at each half hour break. Even turning on the music for a few minutes and spontaneously dancing invokes joy and improves health.

You are invited to choose your favorite beat or just enjoy the music on the Joy Workout Video (from Newsweek article).

Here are the 7 Joy Movements.

  • Reaching your arms up and breathe
  • Swaying hips, arms and legs side to side
  • Bouncing in rhythmic movement to a beat
  • Shaking hands, arms, legs and body
  • Jump for joy, bouncing on feet and lifting arms up
  • Celebrate by taking up space with arms stretched out and little jumps
  • Freestyle to music which can include spinning like a dancer
  • Take a bow for doing it!

Consider this as an experiment and an invitation to rediscover the joy of movement. There are plenty of other science-backed ways to improve your mood with exercise and these exercises may just be the start.

FREE Self-Care Goal Sheet – Now In Spanish

We are excited to share this FREE Diabetes Self-Care Goal Sheet that you can customize for your practice.

Setting realistic person-centered goals is a critical part of providing diabetes education care and support. We have created a goal sheet that you can use in your practice to capture the next steps toward improving self-care. 

You can customize this sheet with your logo and contact information or just download and print the PDF to get started. No permission is needed. We are delighted to share these sheets with you.

Start small and Build on Success

Taking on a new behavior is not easy.

By careful coaching, we can help participants create goals that are REALLY achievable and important to the individual.

For example, someone says they want to “eat more healthfully”, then we can ask, “What would that look like for you?”. They might reply, “I want to eat for more fruits and vegetables instead of junk food”. To get more specific, we can discuss how many servings of fruit and vegetables a day do they think would be realistic? We can encourage individuals to start with one to two servings a day and gradually increase portions as the person gains more confidence in their ability.

To help build success, we may want to emphasize that is doesn’t matter whether people consume fresh, frozen or canned fruits and vegetables. They all offer similar nutrient values. The main consideration is highlighting affordable and appealing fruits and veggies based on the individuals’ taste and preferences.

This simple goal sheet can help capture the negotiated goals and follow-up care activities. This checklist of activities can also be reminders for us to discuss eye and foot care, plus oral hygiene and vaccinations too.

Do Colombians Eat Hot Foods? Learn how to Crack the Cultural Code.

We are excited to share our guest blog post by multicultural nutrition expert, Lorena Drago, MS, RD, CDCES. In addition to creating an amazing 6-week series that provides participants with tools, including live cook-alongs, that highlight the foods and traditions from the six largest Hispanic subgroups in the U.S. Lorena is a great story teller, plus, she is offering a $30 discount for her program series which starts November 2nd. Thanks Lorena for your sense of humor and your determination to get this spicy conversation going!

All Hispanic people like spicy foods, right?

Actually…

Funny story. I was eating a family-style meal with colleagues recently and took a bite from a dish that was spicy hot. I said, “Ooo – not for me. This is too hot.”

They looked at me and asked incredulously, “Aren’t you Latina?”

Yes, I am.

“Didn’t you grow up eating hot and spicy foods?”

No, I did not. I am Colombian.

“Don’t you eat hot foods in Colombia?”

No, we don’t. What we eat depends on the region in which you live. We have nine regions in Colombia, and I was raised in the Caribbean region. Therefore, the food that I tend to eat differs from the Pacific, Andean, Amazonian and other regions in the country.

We laughed over this, and a conversation about culture and food preferences ensued.

Join Lorena’s Webinar Series – Crack the Cultural Code. Starts Nov 2 – Save $30 with COACHBEV discount.

Many of us make assumptions about what our clients, including Hispanics, eat. What if you had a solid understanding of the food and culinary preferences of the six major Hispanic subgroups in the U.S.? You can! It’s time to Crack the Cultural Code!

What we say matters. As educators, advocates, spouses, friends, and providers, our use of language can deeply affect the self-view of people living with diabetes everyday. The language used in the health care setting is immensely important in determining the success of the interaction and long term relationships. Thoughtful communication provides a sense of support and empathy and moves both the provider and person with diabetes toward greater satisfaction and success.

Interview with Dr. Diana Isaacs | Keynote for DiabetesEd Virtual Conference

Diana Isaacs, PharmD, BCPS, BC-ADM, BCACP, CDCES

We are thrilled that Diana Isaacs will be joining our Virtual Course on October 6-8, 2021!

Dr. Isaacs was named 2020 ADCES Diabetes Educator of the Year for her educational platform promoting the use of technology, pumps, and CGM therapy for people with diabetes plus other innovations.  Dr. Isaacs was awarded the Ohio Pharmacists Association Under 40 Award in 2019. Dr. Isaacs has served in leadership roles for several pharmacies and diabetes organizations. She has numerous diabetes publications and research projects with a focus on medications, CGM and diabetes technology.

As the CGM Program Coordinator and clinical pharmacist specialist in the Cleveland Clinic Diabetes Center, Dr. Isaacs brings a wealth of clinical knowledge combined with extensive research experience to this program.

Exclusive Interview with Dr. Diana Isaacs

Question: What do you love about being a Diabetes Specialist?
Dr. Isaacs: I have the opportunity to help people manage their diabetes through my expertise and support. I start many people with diabetes on CGM and I see first hand how life changing the technology is for them. People are very grateful for my help and it is so rewarding.

Question: Over the past year, what has been most challenging about providing diabetes care during the pandemic?
Dr. Isaacs: I miss doing the group classes and shared medical appointments but we’ve had to majorly scale back taking into consideration room size and safety. Also, many people are struggling with mental health during the pandemic and many are afraid to come to clinic. However, we have made great strides by increasing access through virtual care.

Question: What role do you see technology playing in people with diabetes lives over the next few years?
Dr. Isaacs: Technology is exploding. Virtual care is allowing us to reach way more people with diabetes and making it more convenient for everyone. Mobile apps and blue tooth technology are making it so the healthcare team can access a person’s diabetes data from anywhere (With their permission of course). There also continue to be huge improvements in insulin pump, continuous glucose meter, and smart insulin pen technology.

Question: What actions can Diabetes Specialists take to increase access to diabetes technologies including insulin pumps, CGMs and Smart Pens.
Dr. Isaacs: We need to stay up to date on all of the technology because it’s evolving so quickly. Some strategies to do this include attending professional meetings, meet with your sales reps, check out websites like diabeteswise.org and DANAtech (offered through ADCES). There are many continuing education opportunities offered through various organizations, including your website (www.diabetesed.net).

Also, if you get a chance to try a demo (Such as obtaining a sample of a smart pen, or CGM) and wearing it. That’s the best way to learn!. There are also various demo mobile apps that give the user experience. (Ex. T:Simulator for Tandem insulin pumps).

Question: Would you share your hobby (ies) and how you maintain work life balance?
Dr. Isaacs: I have 5 kids ages 2-9, so they keep me pretty busy. One day a week I completely disconnect from all electronics and just spend time with the family. I also enjoy running and run almost every morning before starting my day. With the pandemic I stopped going to the gym. I live in Cleveland and am proud to say I ran outside even when it was 3 degrees with lots of snow and ice on the ground.
