Something Learned #3: Qigong Part 2

I signed up for a 10-session, Wednesday night Qigong class through our local parks and recreation department.  Last week was my first class, and my self-assigned homework was to attempt being present and in the moment every time I entered a room by doing what I thought was one simple thing:  always entering the room with my left foot.  I thought that this would be relatively easy.  Instead, I discovered that this was pretty much impossible.  For the past week I have probably only been aware of entering a room and using my left foot a total of three times.  For the last week.  Seven days.  Wow, now that’s a fail!

Okay, so perhaps I overestimated my abilities in this particular area.  I will try again, but maybe not right away.  I realize now that I need to take a bunch of smaller steps, something that is a little more manageable.  So for my next homework assignment, I’m pretty sure that I can successfully do the following…

5 Things To Do Every Morning

  1.  Express gratitude
  2. Set your intentions for the day
  3. Take 5 deep breaths, in and out
  4. Smile for no reason just to flex the muscle
  5. Forgive yourself for yesterday’s mistakes

I start tomorrow.  Update next Wednesday, to be continued…
