Who was laughing of a hamster in a wheel? You don’t? Me too:)
When I visited malls years before, I used to stop by pet shops. Pet shop is like a mini zoo, mini life, someone is there in cages alive, with no imagination what is going on around in a human world… I used to observe animals’ behavior, for example, hamsters’s group behavior. They were usually 10 to 20 in one cage (depending on their size and a size of a cage). Usually, one of them was active, running in a wheel while others were peacefully dreaming their dreams, sweetly huddled one on each other.
A day before official announcement of prohibition to make sports and walking in public areas, a lady caught a hardly to conceal nervousness in the runner’s face. She saw him for seconds and then he ran away, but his face, breathing and body manner obviously showed the inner indignation and a protest to the upcoming restrictions.
For those who are sportsmen, for athletes, for humans used to be physically active, this COVID-19 period could appear as a hard time. Or oppositely, could improve mental toughness and the Power.
Last morning, approximately at 5:30 am (before sunrise), I was on the balcony, running on the spot.
This morning, a little bit later, at 7 am, I was there again. But today I was not alone: during all the day neighbors were doing sports on their balconies or private areas. I saw one man with a jump-rope, one athlete doing stretching exercises, another athlete with tons! of milk packages in two bags, for each hand to train, from another balcony half visible silhouette of woman making sports with elastic fitness bands. A very old lady was walking rounds on her balcony at midday. Really, there are no limits for healthy spirit!
My initial sport transformation after few years of indefensible laziness has started one day, when I was laying on the sofa with potato chips and a phone in my hands.
The video name claimed, something will happen in a month if I will do those exercises before bed. As like I was programmed (properly that time:)), I started to do so, every evening, with that video on. After one month I was flying, yeah, I was alive! Started to go deeper to my physical and mental wellness, started my transition to Nature. I need to thank to the creators of that youtube video, they contributed to my amazing transformation. Im sharing that video with you now, more so, I decided to renew the program and will do it again these days : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wACJFmx7FKs
In that video, exercise, named “Standing crossover toe touches” at 9:11 minute (9:11??) is very good exercise for me now, because it enhances lungs’ ventilation.
Still love those exercises and that feeling of self-transformation for good:))
