I am learning that the more consistent I am leaning in on different areas.the more it becomes second hand to make leaning in a way of life..
Its like apathy and lethargy are giving way.
Today..we learn Poetry In Motion…
Standing in an open space..put radio on a music channel you like.start with cat stretches..finding the sweet spot..moving to stretch dance moves of stretch and hold..move to new stretch and hold as you see fit. Add small rocking to each sweet spot as you feel the desire to… then add arm moves..from ballet to slow rhythmic workout moves..
A key is to hear the music..let the sound touch you..let the music move you..as if you were a leaf and music is the wind. Stay slower than usual..really feel the musics effect on your body and psyche..
As you do this..choose the movements that fit you this day , right now..
Start with two to three songs..
The final objective is to move to an hour a day of moving as you wish..as you feel..from stretching only..to rocking only.. to arm movements only..to a full hour of poetry in motion.
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.
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.
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.
