Practice Tai Chi or Qigong daily (2/25)

No Title

No Description

Exercises is as important to your body as air. If you don’t move it, it will not serve you as well or as long. A body was designed to move, to stretch its muscles, to keep the internal organs working and to circulate blood, fluids and nutrients. If you are sedentary, everything stagnates.  But,healthy exercise doesn’t have to be rigorous or require specialized outfits.

Tai Chi and Qigong can be done at any time of the day and 20-30 minutes will serve you just fine.  I practice both, but Qigong is my go-to form because I can do it first thing in the morning before anyone else gets up, this is my time to connect body, mind, and spirit.  If there is a hectic or rushed morning, I can take my lunch hour to both eat something healthy and do my Qigong practice. If there is a mandatory lunch meeting or conference at the noontime, I can always do my practice after work.  Before dinner, I take the time to practice. I believe that I can only keep my family healthy if I set the example, first.

If we follow the Chinese, we see they practice Tai Chi and Qigong daily, in the park, at sunrise, and as a group. They form a community of this easy and beautiful exercise. It may look like a graceful dance, but behind the elegance are exercise movements that strengthen the heart, increase circulation, expand the lungs, and create a healthy internal environment for your organs. There must be something to the fact that Tai Chi and Qigong have been around for thousands of years and the Chinese have one of the highest longevity rates on the planet. Find a teacher and learn the basic moves. Once you have them, you can practice anytime and any day you like.
