I feel so giddy! I feel giddy, because guys, I have an Instagram account for About That Core!
And in the few hours since I set up the account, I’ve learned that July is Diastasis awareness month! I’ve had so much fun learning from others, experts in this field, may I add, that are passionate about core health, and core dysfunction awareness, and core restoration, and there’s such an awesome sense of community in these discussions, as many, like me, have experienced first hand how limiting it is to live with a condition that many, including medical professionals who should know better, brush aside as a non-issue.
Facts and tips are being shared, myths are being debunked, and the information is tip top, and my geeky heart is so full of excitement to have found another resource! Do you ever feel the same about certain subjects of interest? If you do, would you please share them below?
Anyhow, check out the few examples below, all from The Tummy Team – who I think I might be in love with – such a clever team. They come highly recommended, as far as core restoration programs go, and are available online, hence worldwide.
