I have officially hit the 6 month mark of when I started stretching more consistently!
There is no question in my mind that it has made a difference. My base flexibility is higher as is my flexibility when warmed up. It also takes me less and less time to get warmed up safely. So huge win all around. The only mistruth I feel I have been told was that if I missed a week it would be like starting over. I was sick in the beginning of the month and didn’t stretch for a about a week and while I didn’t improve (wouldn’t that be awesome), I didn’t lose everything I had gained. Adding to my pile of evidence showing that slow and steady do win the race after all 🙂
This project has been harder than a lot of my other projects, mainly because it is starting to feel like a lot of different projects. I have started to really enjoy one concrete focus a month. The last two days I have felt super overwhelmed without any really focus as to what was stressing me out. When I get stressed like this I usually become very unproductive, which makes no sense because I am stressed out about all the things I want to get DONE… ugh
SO I made a two column list:
Things that I actually need to do before I leave for Japan
Things that are flying around my head, but not doing them won’t prevent me from successfully travelling to Japan
Somehow that worked! It became very clear what was actually important to do that day and what could be scheduled for another day. It’s those extra nagging thoughts flying around my brain that are the ones causing all the stress in my life. GO away nagging buzzing thoughts!
It also managed to give me just enough time to put together video 2 of 3 (although it becoming video 2 of 2 is a possibility) before we fly out to Japan:
And now off to Japan!
