What’s a Great Exercise You Can Do Your Whole Life? Walk.
Definition of mindfulness:
A mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.
It’s important you don’t make these new mindfulness tools into a “job” when walking or you will just wear yourself out. If you feel worn out using these tools from the videos you’re thinking too much and trying too hard. Make small adjustments then see how you feel when walking. That’s “listening” to the body.
Back in the 1990’s
I started the McCall Method back in the 199’s before Mindfulness was a mainstream idea. I’ve been teaching a form of mindfulness with the McCall Method for many years. As you relax more into the movements, you gain a sense of comfort because the body is naturally designed to be comfortable. Most people think comfort is just the absence of pain but this is far from the truth. There is an innate intelligence in the body to heal and feel well whether we are moving or at rest.
Take care and enjoy a stroll today,

My foundational video series represents the essence of what the McCall Method is all about: it focuses on the most basic and overlooked parts of the way we move. Whether you’re standing, sitting, bending or lying down this series begins to unlock my approach to preventing and/or getting out of pain.
I’m offering you three of the 18 videos in this foundational series in the hopes you’ll begin to understand how the McCall Method can help you in everything that requires movement.
