Ever wake up feeling shittee?
Or not on top of your game just yet?
Well, you’re not alone.
Yesterday I was listening to an interview with a best-selling author in the self-development field, and to my amazement, he admitted that he’s often depressed and battles anxiety regularly.
His battles with anxiety – a fancy word for “fear” – start as soon as he gets up each day.
Holy dawg piles.
That really sucks.
At first I couldn’t relate to the author whatsoever. But then I got to thinking, “Wait a second, Fure-cat. You used to wake up grumpy as hell. It used to take you a couple hours to find your groove.”
All this changed, however, when I began doing loosening exercises before getting into the thick of the day.
No, I did not say stretching exercises.
Loosening exercises are not the same as stretching – because with loosening you are primarily working on the joints of the body as opposed to the muscles.
Over 25 years ago, a kung fu and tai chi teacher told me, “Everyone works on stretching the muscles, but it’s the joints that need to be loose. If the joints are loose, the muscles will go along for the ride.”
True statement, but he forget to tell me other part of the story.
The mind-blowing reality of loosening the joints, though, is NOT that your joints get looser. It’s that you start FEELING GREAT as your joints are exercised.
There’s a huge psycho-physical reaction that takes place when you exercise your joints in a free flowing manner.
If I were you, I’d get on it. You’ll be in awe at how it changes your life.
Here endeth the lesson.
P.S. If you want me to guide you in HOW to loosen your joints, it comes with your membership in the Furey Faithful. Those
of you who are already members and may have overlooked this section – look for the heading… 8 Joint Loosening Set.
P.P.S. Also, the Neck Chi Kung Set helps a ton with getting into the FEEL GREAT STATE of MIND.
