I believe that this practice literally saved my life during a very difficult time. I am here to pay it forward to help others.
More than ten years ago I was caring for my elderly parents. They were entering that end of life period at their late 90’s to 101 years of age. If you have done this you know what a stressful time it can be. The time that I had for myself was limited and I was pulled in all directions. My thoughts were racing all the time. My sleep was terrible, always filled with anxious thoughts. The good health that I had come to expect was failing me.
I happened upon a Tai Chi Chih at my local gym. Immediately, as I was copying the movements, I felt some of that stress move away from me. It felt as though I had reentered my body and gained some calm. As I settled into the soles of my feet my active brain settled too. I sensed that maybe I could respond to my environment instead of just reacting to it.
As I practiced the movements over the next few weeks and months my nightly sleep improved and that led to making better decisions during the day. My declining health improved as well.
This practice is my comfort and friend and has led to renewed energies as well as a joyful outlook on life.
