“Ideas about being right or wrong, especially in such a subjective area as aesthetics can be hard to change. Especially when you’re trying to change your belief that a right or a wrong exists at all”

Warming Up:

I looked for a routine. It was worthless. As I’m planning, I’m already bored and trying to find ways out of it. Ways out of my own planning! It’s not necessarily lack of discipline. I’m plenty interested in training, being fit, and awakening body-awareness. I’d like to fine-tune my movement qualities and play more in the risk-taking areas. Yet, the way to do that for me is not a routine, 45min warm-up before I start my day. The way to have a good relationship with my body is getting inspired by it everyday. Listening to the tight parts, the loose parts, where the blood is flowing and how the energy can generate on this particular day. Each day is different and the training should represent that.

I did an assessment the first two days:

What are my Desires? What am I Resisting? What are my Strengths? What are my Weaknesses? And lastly, taking a Body Inventory.

Naturally, I didn’t keep it up. (Because otherwise that would be routine!) None-the-less, it helped me look at my body and mind objectively and get me outta my head and into something three dimensional. I will keep this in my tool box for when I feel stuck.
