Years ago, I remember listening to Zig Ziglar say, “You need a check-up from the neck up.”
He was referring to an attitudinal adjustment, wherein you stop entertaining negative thoughts and become more positive.
Funny thing is, by moving and exercising your neck, it’s possible to elevate feelings of positivity, without even trying to do so.
In my international best-seller, Combat Conditioning, I taught a number of exercises involving the neck, including bridging.
But what if you don’t have access to a soft mat?
Or you don’t want to lie on the floor?
Or don’t want to bridge?
Can you still get a good neck workout that will make you feel recharged and revitalized?
Yes, you can.
I’ve put together an entire system of slow-motion Neck Qi Gong (Chi Kung) exercises I learned in China, and these are actually better for you than positive thinking because you’re not forcing good feelings upon yourself.
You’re allowing positivity to bubble up from within by increasing blood flow to the brain.
I’m not sure how much negativity in the world is due to poor blood circulation, but I believe it is substantial.
I’m considering putting these neck exercises out on DVD, but for now, if you’re a member of the FureyFaithful.com membership site, you can watch and follow along with me.
Keep in mind the tortoise is revered in China as a symbol of longevity. When asked why the tortoise lives so long, the theory goes as follows:
The Tortoise is…
1. always moving it’s neck
2. has a protective shell
3. never in a hurry
In a sense, when you do the Neck Qi Gong exercises I’m teaching you, you enhance blood flow and then you may start feeling so good it’s as though you have a field of protective energy around you, keeping you from self-inflicted negativity.
Do these exercises slowly and you’ll probably find yourself less frazzled and stressed.
And that’s probably a good frame of mind to be in during the holiday season, don’t you think?
Anyway, take a minute to tune into the FureyFaithful.com page and see what’s in store for you.
