Doing Somatic Exercises. The Goal is to learn to relearn and use the full movement for example of the shoulder or hip. To relearn a relaxed rest position.
Information of a book of Thomas Hanna:
Chronical muscle tension don’t get released during sleep. They are also active during sleeping, so there is no relaxation. This is because the muscles got a false memory and think the tensed state is the normal relaxed state.
Also to tense muscles are always active and not relaxed muscles and consume a lot of Energy of the body. This can lead fast do tiredness.
Playing Drums each morning. It feels great. It’s awesome just having fun.
I am also playing with my right leg again since like 3 Month not having really used it because of pain for over 4 years. So that’s awesome.
Drumming its self can be a form of meditation just getting lost in the music, no thinking about am I playing correct, how is my technique, what should I play next….
And again so much to do. As it looks all the pain comes from Muscle Tension and Bad Posture. So I am working on those both.
- Doing balance training
- stretches for my hip, forearm and chest
- mobilization for my hip and chest
- active going into max tension and slowly going into the relaxed state of the chest muscle
- Massage for my feet and forearm
If I would need to choose only three, I would say doing the forearm stretches, a relaxing mediation and the chest muscle relaxation is the best to do.
2 Week Challenge:
No optical improvement in the mirror. But I am more and more aware of my posture. Standing I notice that all my weight is on my heels and I am trying to correct it more often. Also every time I get by a mirror or if I think about it, I let go in my hips and bring my upper body more forward.
