Improving your well-being at home with Tai Chi & Chi Kung (extra videos)
The second part of my initial post, with extra suggestions for great videos to watch at home and improve your own mental and physical well-being.

Improving your well-being at home with Tai Chi & Chi Kung
Wondering what you can do at home alone to improve both your mental and physical well-being, during these lockdown times and beyond? Join me for a low-impact exercise session at home, with Chi Kung/ Qigong exercises that you can do alone, as you find greater mind-body balance and relaxation. No excuses :)

At some point, we all live through circumstances that bring some tension into our lives. This feels even truer during the past few months. Being almost constantly at home is both physically and mentally demanding. Some times, extremely demanding. It feels like some form of milder or deeper stress is almost unavoidable these days. TRE stands for 'Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises'. If you want to learn more about TRE and find out how you can do it by yourself, at home, check this article.

What can I (and you) do that is interesting and/or fun, alone, at home, and repeatable? Share your ideas in the comments section. I hope you can try some of them yourself!

... Zoom fatigue is not inevitable though and there are a few measures you can implement to reduce it. Above all, however, I would like to invite you to use your compassion and kindness when you interact with your friends and colleagues, and not to rush into judgment about their choice to video-call you or not. Don’t measure your relationships by the amount or extent of your online calls. It is hard to go by with less intimacy and real human connection but quality trumps quantity every time.

How can we cope with unwelcome circumstances, the break from our normal routines, being locked at home for days in a row? Our ability to cope with any event or circumstance which we perceive negatively is what we call resilience. It is a skill and, as such, it can be learned, developed, improved. My top 5 resilience skills include self-awareness, setting goals, choosing an optimistic mindset, using your strengths, and self-care.
