How core crunches can increase your confidence

 Why do my Free abs 21 day challenge?




1.Firstly making the commitment to yourself for 10 minutes assures you time absolutely dedicated to you! 

2. Secondly doing something for 21 days days builds consistency so you are more likely to continue with this healthy habit!

3.Thirdly strengthening your abs helps to strengthen your whole body because your centre in secure and your are less prone to injury

4.Finally your core centre is connected to your chakra power solar plexus (manipura) energy which can not only energise but help build our confidence!


Fun Fact 


Did you know that up until the age of 12 your core naturally kicks in but after that you have to work with it to keep the connection. This is the reason why when adults fall over they are more likely to hurt themselves than children! This is the reason we have to do abs work especially after having children. 


Because of consistent ab work at 40 and after 3 children I feel more connected to my core than ever. My abs feel stronger than ever and my solar plexus confidence is on fire!


As discussed, your third chakra is located in the core of the body, at the solar plexus. To fully be ourselves, we need a strong core. Balancing the third chakra means maximising your personal power and strength. 


When energy flows through the third chakra, we feel a strong sense of purpose and self-worth. If energy is blocked we feel the complete opposite


Practising the core postures in  my abs challenge with mindful breathing, helps release tension in the solar plexus, physically, mentally, and emotionally. 


My beginners Ab crunches warm up the centre of the body and connect with the fiery energy of the sun.


The rest of the postures in my abs challenge build confidence and the final exercise, bridge pose aligns the third chakra.


Having an inactive blocked solar plexus can result in Low self-esteem. Lack of self-trust. Weak will power and Poor digestion. The feeling of being bloating is so much deeper than the way we look.


When I feel bloated, I feel sluggish and lethargic and in my experience this can often be the result of blocked feelings! Often when I am pushing myself out of my comfort zone I feel nerves in my stomach which can create anxiety. 


However when I work with my solar plexus by doing inner core work I can release the anxiety and my inner power!


Therefore the solar plexus chakra relates to the Fire Element so strong  core work is amazing to stimulate this chakra. 


While doing my challenge why don’t you connect with your chakra power as well as build sexy abs for summer
