A Consistent Routine is Best, Except When It’s Not (Flexibility of Self Is…)
[ minor update 091719 ]
perseverance, and persistence, are vital to our very survival –
it’s sometimes hard to recall, as darwin is reported to have said, “adaptability” is the key
and, for me, adaptability, isn’t possible, without flexibility of mind and spirit
yoga, of course, is notoriously known for flexibility of body 😉
meant to induce and promote flexibility of spirit, and…
back to darwin, “adaptability to change”
how key is the ability to adapt to change?
well, considering that many feel change is the only constant –
and that the theory of relativity is said to rest on a fixed standard, the speed of light –
and change is thus comparable to the speed of light in regard to our experience of what is constant –
then the ability to adapt to change is essential…
ie, pretty darn key 😉
So What’s the Point?
for me, it’s to look then at all the ways flexibility to change, adaptability, can occur in people…us!
since my previous post had to do with playfulness and seniors and fitness exercise, for me right now, i would say that the ability to recognize (awareness) and respond to (exercise) routine, with creative playful adaptability, is probably one of the most important things i personally need to re-learn from childhood, and re-apply as an adult
vary my routine with intensity
vary my routine with time
vary my routine with movement variation
vary my exercise and creative and mundane routines with minute variances –
and give myself compassionate credit for trying and accomplishing what i do each day…
spring has stepped aside today, for the week they say, to let winter vent a bit before hibernating in the warmth
even mother nature knows to adapt the seasons within the seasons, or risk freezing the continuity of life…
take care everyone, blessings 😉
