Today, try this…
Do a great cat stretch..
Feel how good that feels..do it again n notice there is a sweet spot that feels so good..
Now stand and start to stretch whatever feels like it needs to stretch..find the sweet spot n hold..when tired..go into another stretch..and hold..then again and then again.
Do this for five minutes in your spare time.
Do this for 15 minutes to get you going in the mornings or do it for 30 to 60 minutes as a real workout.
If you aren’t sitting still..you are exercising.
Peace..I am glad you are here..Kandy
Today..notice places around the house that can be an anchor to trigger you to exercise spontaneously throughout the day.. for example.kitchen counter..turn your back ..put hands on counter…do assisted squats..this works out your upper arms..buttocks..and thighs.. Another place..a wall or door is good to do easy wall pushups..out of bath or shower bend and stretch..body is limber from heat..
When you look in mirror..if you don’t like a part of your body..do 20 seconds of isotonics for that body part.
In essence use your house to condition your movements and strength building throughout the day. Peace…I am glad you are here ..kandy.
Today is easy..in spare moments or while watching tv..listening to audio or music..just stand and do arm movements..
Ballet moves..tai chi moves..Dancin with the Stars moves…any move that feels good..
Do it for 5..10..or 30minutes at a time..
Simple way to fit in a fun mini work out..
Lean into it..peace..
I am glad you are here.
Today..we move towards “Poetry In Motion” by one simple action. Stand and rock. To do this..simply stand for 15 to 30 minutes and rock back and forward..switching which leg is in front when u get tired..also..rock side to side.alternating the rocking to back and forth when tired. You
can do this to music or watching a show or listening to audio.
Many people rarely move their bodies..this simple act gets blood
flowing and heart working better than sitting..and gets you ready for more movement.
It can be done at home..in your office between clients..blood to brain facilitates better thinking..and better decisions..
Have a great day..I am glad you are here. Kandy
So..pressing against that ugly force of erasing..Here goes..
Onward to learning to do “Poetry In Motion”..While sitting, after cat stretch, turning, bending, stretch and stay, and gentle or consistent rocking.. now experiment with arm movements…from simple gym movements like row machine rowing.. to ballet moves.. to copying moves of “Dancing With The Stars”..you explore which moves feel good and right for you right now..lean into your strengthening and stamina.. If you have ever painted a ceiling.. you know how much work arm work can do for your heart, muscles and blood flow.
Anyone can do these moves,, even the bedridden.. and moving just your arms does move blood flow. which increases oxygen, which gives energy and makes us feel great. peace..Kandy..I am glad you are here.
I will say this.. Staying a while longer is what I am doing here, right now..I have written this post two times and have ”accidently” deleted it two times.. arghhh. So, in the interest of my theory.. I will push through and write and post one more time.. It does make the dark force of erasing my message angry …but that is it’s tough luck.. I will post this now and next post will be a type of what was erased two other times this morning. Peace to you.. Kandy
The next concept to know so you can do Poetry In Motion..is that just sitting you can be exercising.. at home in front of TV, at work at lunch break.. the level at work depends on your ability to have privacy.Any movement gets your blood flowing.. just stretching.. like a cat is a good start.. then stretch and hold.. soft twists and hold.. gentle rocking at your stretching sweet spot.. moving to more rhythmic rocking.. which can be soothing to your psyche also.. remember your privacy level. Rocking is a little known form of gentle exercise.. and you can do it on a couch, regular chair.. sitting on the floor…doesn’t have to have a rocking chair.. Your elderly relatives can benefit from choosing to rock as they watch their shows..
Remember any kind of movement is a form of exercise.. think of how this is true.. which is better.. sitting still all day or rocking an hour a day?
Small movements like this done every day prep your mind and body to move more… heading to your own Poetry In Motion…
more to come tomorrow.. peace,, Kandy..I am glad you are here.
Good morning. Here is the next instruction for Poetry In Motion. It’s about finding time to move throughout your day. Spare moments.. waiting on coffee to brew, waiting on your spouse or friend to get ready, watching TV, any moment can work. As was previously mentioned.. any movement can be considered exercise. Just think, is your circulation moving better while sitting or while just standing? or if you only raise your arms. Any moment you sit you can raise your arms, or twist gently, or bend over,, given it’s an appropriate setting. These small movements get your blood flowing.. get your body more fluid, and ready to move more. A cat stretch can do wonders when you haven’t moved much from your seat all day… Think about it…just move a little..; bend over with your desk to support you.. get the blood to your head. More blood flow, more oxygen to the brain.. It is oxygen that wakes us up and gives us more energy. Bend over in your seat. By leaning into these small movements, you get your system prepped for greater movements.. I will bring more tomorrow.. peace,. Kandy.. I am glad you are here.
I have created a fun..easy form of exercise.. I call it Poetry In Motion..
It is inspired by several things.. One is a statement on Superbetter.com that if one is not sitting still at ones seat, one is exercising..Two.. came from the book Blue Zones..that studied worlds oldest population of healthy people.. one thing in common… they didn’t exercise.. life was exercise.. most walked where they went.. Three.. a story about a woman who would go to the gym and never worked out…exactly.. she stretched for an hour every day.. any way she felt her body needed that day..she progressively got into better and better shape….
will start posting my exercise instructions tomorrow.. see if the above ideas inspire new thoughts for you. peace, Kandy.. I am glad you are here.
It’s been a while since I last posted. I give my workshop at RiverValley on next Tuesday.. am nervous and excited. I have also created a new workout. I am calling it poetry in motion, it’s really fun. I’ll post about it later. My husband noticed I am getting more toned.. so that is more proof the workshop is working. I feel good about where it is going. I have even come up with a line of direction of overall success for anyone… lean into it.. then stay a while.. til you can dance.. will add more to that later too. It fits with neuroplasticity..
I have to thank a blue man group video for turning me onto that. glad you are here. peace, kandy
