Day at a time, Uncertainty, 22/5/2020

A wonderful Qi Gong practice this morning, activating energy and flow in the body ending with bamboo in the wind; feet together and letting the body gently rock and sway. I experience a feeling of flow and ease; mind, body and heart at one....continue reading

Day at a time, Lingering in happiness, 21/5/20

Yesterday I made a commitment to renounce the habit of hurrying. Today sitting in meditation, I notice hurry up mind arising. Ideas are coming to me about the Wigwam initiative – the online forums, people to be involved, fund-raising ideas and I can feel the energy in my body wanting to jump up off the cushion. ...continue reading

Day at a time, A daily practice is a gift, 20/5/20

I practiced the same beautiful routine this morning of rebounding, Qi Gong and meditation. What a wonderful way to start the day. I wonder why it has taken me half a lifetime (hopefully) to discover the joy of a morning routine and how it opens up my moment by moment experience for the rest of the day....continue reading

Day at a time, Choose life, 19/5/2020

Sitting here now, in my body, feeling its weight and the solidity of my feet flat on the floor, mind calm – enjoying the present moment. It is a well-earned! For over 2 hours I have given the mind and body the attention it enjoys, starting with 20 minutes cardio and strength building on the rebounder, ...continue reading

Day at a time, Choose life, 18/5/2020

Sitting here now, in my body, feeling its weight and the solidity of my feet flat on the floor, mind calm – enjoying the present moment. It is a well-earned! For over 2 hours I have given the mind and body the attention it enjoys, starting with 20 minutes cardio and strength building on the rebounder, then 1 hour of Qi Gong practice in the garden and finishing with about half an hour of meditation....continue reading

Day at a time, The art of being truly alive, 17/5/2020

Normality – a day of normality on Saturday. I drove my son to visit his girlfriend forty minutes’ drive away. It was the first time I’d driven in 8 weeks and I had to think about where the controls were. Later that day, my sister and husband cycled over and we had social distancing tea in the garden....continue reading

A day at a time, Prioritizing self-care, 15/5/2020

I was coughing a lot last night and being woken up by it – not Covid-19 – but a reaction to the dogs who have been choosing to hang out on my bed all day. I must do something about that. We’ve been out of our bedroom since before lockdown because of building work. ...continue reading

Day at a time, Daily check in, 14/5/20

This morning I woke up feeling unwell all over and with a mild discomfort in my chest. I decided to go back to the first Qi Gong immunity boost flow practice which felt very healing and positive at the beginning of this lockdown when I was feeling quite fearful. ...continue reading

Day at a time, Slowing down, 11/5/2020

The new lockdown rules have barely changed for the majority of us. However, just contemplating a change has many people reflecting on the life they have now and the life they were living before. ...continue reading

Day at a time, Being intentional, 10/5/20

So, my new resolve to practice Qi Gong followed by meditation, making up a morning practice of ninety minutes is already floundering. The extra discipline required on a Bank holiday weekend has not been there. Getting up a bit later combined with no work structure or agenda is a definite hindrance to me. I slip into procrastination all too easily. ...continue reading
