MIND OVER MATTER
This morning I was working with a client who literally had surgery 2 days ago. Some of his friends thought he was crazy to want to move his body so soon after surgery, but he was determined to continue building on the momentum we have been creating together to keep his body open, strong and long. Now keep in mind, we did not do what he would do normally without having just had surgery, but instead I helped him to find new ways of moving through this new obstacle he has encountered just for the time being. We were gentle, positive and explorative. I wanted my client to not be afraid, and it helped obviously to have doctor clearance for this! I would never do anything I thought might harm a person. The point is that while the majority of individuals would've never dreamed of moving, my client was focused on moving in a different way today. I speak with him a lot about the way he is feeling in his own body in any given moment because he is receptive to learning new ways to continue to utilize his body as he ages. He does not want to be one of those boring old guys! This is because of his incredible mindset. He truly wants to improve his body and mind connection and his ability to move in general. His drive to feel good today outweighed his fear of feeling bad. I was very inspired by his attitude and wanted to share this with you all as a reminder to keep a clear state of mind no matter what might come up to stand in your way. It is important and crucial to hire a professional to assist you when you are not a 100 percent you, so please do not just run a marathon after surgery. DO be open to healing your body and remaining within the safety zone of how you are feeling in the present moment.
