Upper Extremities

If you have good habits, time becomes your ally. All you need is patience. ~ James Clear

Since I started my mindful movement practice in 1999, I’ve become more and more fascinated by the power and possibility behind understanding, noticing and choosing our habits. More and more, I see in my own life, in my community and in the world that whatever we do over and over, no matter how small is what determines our experience.

In January, when I hadn’t even heard of COVID-19, I wrote and taught about this quote from James Clear. He eloquently expresses something that I repeatedly experience in my own life.

Your outcomes are a lagging measure of your habits. Your net worth is a lagging measure of your financial habits. Your weight is a lagging measure of your eating habits. Your knowledge is a lagging measure of your learning habits. Your clutter is a lagging measure of your cleaning habits. You get what you repeat. – James Clear, Atomic Habits (You can find my January post here.)

In today’s All Out All You Movement Party we observe with kind curiosity how we move and think and feel when we go on auto-pilot. It is only from there that we can make choices about how we want to be doing little by little, day after day…even when our lives and the world has been turned upside down. Please find the video here.
