Here is a new technique to find center and calm–Qigong!
Qigong (pronounced chee-gong) is a form of gentle exercise composed of movements that are repeated a number of times, often stretching the body, increasing fluid movement (blood, synovial and lymph) and building awareness of how the body moves through space.
My grandparents introduced me to this video! It’s very simple to do and always gives me some focus and calm. I also do some of these exercises as warmups with the children at the elementary school, and they love it! If my grandparents and elementary school students can do it– so can you.
Keep an open mind. You’ll probably feel a little silly, but that’s okay! What matters is how you feel afterwards. Give it a try and comment on your experience below! Feel free to compare how you feel to other techniques.
