When I get sick, the teacher and or therapist, my back feel like it is up against a wall with no door ways in sight. It makes me cancel massage appointments as well as classes. My body now makes me focus inward and not outward for others. But how can the champion become ill.
Okay, let me rephrase that last statement. I champion others in overcoming their hurdles with words of compassion and maybe inspiration. I praise a accomplishments whenever I see them. But as my own coach, I slack a little,I guess. A champion is like Norma Rae but that isn't my calling. I need refocus around this phrase champion.
I explore the balance between how much force is necessary on the human body. I recognize folks who are stiff because of their own flexible bodies. It may sound like strange but tissue that is flexible needs a more refined form of exercise. A form that is stabilizing more than increasing flexibility.
At times we may need exercise of imagination rather than anything invoking force. With this sinus infection, focused breathing in between hacking coughs was about as far as I can go. Pelvic tilts reminded me of the strength of my back. Just sitting up straight was an effort at times. The longer I can sit upright the better my health is becoming.
I just keep looking for that crack in the wall. The crack which will open to better health and self confidence.
