Wow day 29 already and it has been a great journey which I have enjoyed , which to me is part of it to find things that we enjoy and if they are good for our wellness, mind and body as well then that is a bonus.
Qi gong has bought my body movement and my mind peace, to me it is very much a moving meditation, slightly faster than Ti chi but not as hard ( depending on level) as yoga, I love yoga as well but have been out of practice and when i came across Qi gong last year it seemed to suit me. Find what is right for you.
I have done two Qi gong online sessions one with an amazing Chap called Warren Swartz from www.acqciaqigong.co.uk who is based in Devon and runs great things, but also online so go check out what he offers. He is also on you tube.
The other person I follow who I did the 30 day challenge with via Udemy is Lee Holden who is I believe based in America. either search him on you tube or look Qi gong up on Udemy and challenges. I do have the link but it is crazy long.
So apart from the Qi gong 30 day challenge I also decided to try cold showers and I have got up to 1 minute sometimes just under sometimes over, depends on the day, but it is something I have embraced and felt the benefits of, so if this appeals have a look at Wim Hoff things as he talks about cold shower among a host of breathing techniques and much more. Or you could just set yourself a target and try cold shower at the end of your normal shower and see how you go, the main thing is to focus on your breath.
Lastly I wanted to do barefoot walk first thing in the morning, as it is something I do pretty much daily anyway and love how it can make a difference to your day as you can feel so grounded and connected before cracking on with your day, time outside is always great for body and mind, so maybe have a few minutes barefoot every day, and if feeling stressed at the end of your day, kick the shoes and socks off and go barefoot outside.
So I hope by reading these blog posts that you have found some spark that has inspired you to try something new, to make sometime for you or given you something to ponder.
Thanks for being here
Enjoy the journey
Now as I near my last day, knowing I will continue with what I have done over the last 29 days, I will keep adding things and growing in whatever direction I can.
Have a great day
