On movement/balance focus

  • by

I feel that my movement has marginally improved since I’ve been improving my mental focus on taking longer strides (to stretch out), lifting my feet, being aware of my balance, and keeping my core muscles engaged.

Another thing I’ve started doing recently that I think is helping, is hard to define. I think of it as “inhabiting my body”. Rather than shambling along at my body’s new default level of coordination, I try to be mentally present, and rather than moving from the perspective of assuming the body will fail certain ways, I push into it an attitude that the body can and will do what I want, even if I have to coordinate it more and use more muscles more manually.
