MOBILITY – mobilize those ankles in down-dog!
MINDFULNESS – consider the difference between finding time and making time!
Today’s mobilization technique is a down-dog based ankle range of motion crank. This complements the three-legged down dog technique previously covered (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFQV94Nkqyw), as it demands less of the individual but still provides a great opening of the ankle joint.
Spend a few minutes mindfully breathing, extending, and relaxing the ankle. You’ll be surprised at how your squat feels afterwards!
Today’s mindfulness work is to consider the difference between finding time and making time.
It’s so easy and common to say that you can’t find time to do X, or that you would love to start this new habit but you can’t find the time.
Unless you are a child, you are not going to simply find time. And even kids are terribly busy these days with homework!
Find is not found, it is carved from your day with care and attention. You will spend your time on what is important to you, whether you realize it or not.
If you realize that you’re four episodes deep into a Netflix binge, but you haven’t started that food prep on a lazy Sunday, then that tells you where your priority lies. You can even do both at the same time! Multitasking is great– and so are podcasts 🙂
Don’t look for time. If you want to do something, time will not appear out of the clouds to grant you permission to start that new routine or hobby.
Take time. Grab that time and run away like you stole it. You will never find it.
