You can see it as a way to widen your perspective through integrating a new movement.
Or you could see it as a way to widen your perspective as in where or how you integrate the practice into your life.
And finally, it will widen your perspective by allowing you a wider range of movement in the neck ;)
If you have ever woken with a stiff neck, you will know how restrictive it is to see the world around you, as well as physically painful.
So today's 5mins is encouraging you to incorporate conscious neck movements into your every day.
But even more so to think outside of the box to where you can fit them in.
In day 4 I talked about stretching when you're waiting for the kettle to boil or the toast to pop.
Today I make a new suggestion!
Let me know if you give it a go ;)
As we start to use these practices in small ways it is interesting to note the changes we start to notice in how we move and our awarenesses of the body.
Recently at an osteopathy appointment, my osteo mentioned how tight my neck muscles were and to take note of when I noticed myself tensing them. I knew I had been stressed of late, but this insight made me realise just how often I tensed my neck and shoulders unconsciously. This new awareness has allowed me to change the unconscious habit and create a new more beneficial movement habit.
Have you discovered any new awarenesses for yourself that when changed have improved your life in some way?
Even if it is in some small way.
Please share your comments and questions below so we all can learn from one another.
Thanks everyone. Really enjoying sharing these practices with you and hearing of your insights and successes.
Looking forward to sharing another 5mins with you tomorrow.
Enjoy today's fiver,
