MOBILITY – tricep lax ball smash and floss, 4min/side
Your triceps are the quads of your arms– how often do you roll out your quads and how often do you give your triceps some love? Probably not a very even 1:1 ratio, even though your triceps are a workhorse!
Lots of junk can accumulate in the triceps, which can contribute to tennis elbow-like symptoms. Work those soft tissues out and give yourself some slack in the front rack position as well as overhead!
MINDFULNESS – Consider the life as a balancing scale analogy and perhaps start to think of life as a dance!
We hear so often that life is a balancing act. This brings the image to mind of a set of scales and this constant tension between work and family, between relationships and career, between one thing and another.
I dislike this idea. I think it feels way too static for the chaos and craziness of life.
Life is a dance. There are lulls, there are highs and lows, there are missteps and there are periods of crazy groove.
But, more fundamentally, there is no wrong way to dance. The only way you can be bad at dancing is if you don’t open yourself up. Embrace the struggle and allow new elements to pop into your dance without fighting it.
If life is a balancing act, then this implies so much tension between career and relationships. The scales will snap eventually.
If life is a dance, the more the merrier! The more elements in the mix means you can get deeper into the momenet.
Don’t think of life as a static, boring act of a teeter-totter. Think of it as a big party.
Consider this as you do some box breathing!
