As we move towards Winter Solstice and the days grow shorter, there tends to be a social pressure to be Out and About, get things done, shop and socialize. In some ways these two states can feel out-of-sync or contradictory, thus producing tension in our minds and bodies.

In past vlogs I’ve talked about different natural stress relievers: bringing your focus to your breath or taking a moment to slow down to align your body and become present like a baby Buddha.

Today I’d like to offer a short easy qigong practice to help stay grounded during times of stress or tension during accelerated times.

Do you notice anything different in how you feel after you’ve tried this out or do you feel about the same?
