S3NSE: New Year, New Intentions
“What do you want to do?”
As the year winds down, it is common to start thinking about resolutions for the New Year. All those things that we should, but don’t really want to do. You know, things like going on a diet or exercising more. By the time the holiday decorations are taken down and put away, our resolutions have also been shelved for another year. Why not try something different?
Instead of New Year’s resolutions, you can set New Year’s intentions. What do you really want to do this New Year? It could be simple like eating better, or a grand adventure in Africa. Once you determine your intention, take one easy small step towards it. If my intention is to eat better, a simple step may be buying some fresh fruits and vegetables
To make your intentions more achievable, you may need to “chunk it down”. An intention of becoming healthier is great. But what is healthier? It could be better posture, better stability or easier movement. Remember, your intention is something you want (feeling good), instead of something you do not want (no pain). A simple step to realize all of these intentions is to do the Feldenkrais Method.
Our New Year’s intention is to add a new “hands ons” (Functional Integration) clinic along with our workshops, group zoom and in person classes. It will be an opportunity for our students to experience the other half of the Feldenkrais method at a special price. Stayed tuned for more information on the clinic and other S3NSE offerings: ww.s3nse.org. While there, drop us an email, we would love to hear about your New Year’s intentions.
