There’s been an odd trend among my friends lately: many of them are passing through some challenging times. Break ups. Change of career. Investigation of purpose. Grief. Physical pain.
When we go through the trying times, sure they are character forming, but they are also painful! I made this video because these three practices were helpful for me after I lost my dad. Sometimes the sadness was so profound, my chest and stomach would feel compressed. I wasn’t able to breathe properly, which made my grief worse. Sure, these exercises might be a bit strangzies, but give yourself permission to experiment with different tools that might help you feel good again. I have a friend who recites his problems out loud in a Kermit the Frog voice when things go South. So really, making crab claws and swaying your arms to regain circulation can’t be that intimidating, can it?
