at some point today it clicked in place, this thought that exercise is for me to better take care of this interface of a body that i have, so that i may move through the world with the grace and insight that returns me home
focusing on every move to make sure i get it right: forming habits, intentionality
in Pete Holme's You Made It Weird episode with Kumail Nanjiani, there was mention of KN? listening to Ram Dass as he exercised. whoa, i thought, instead of the rage and intensity of the workout mix i used to put on, what if i played music that brought me comfort?
it worked, though i do think maybe i dont need to fuss with the music that much. and maybe sometimes go without. i would like this to not be something punitive, rather a restorative activity.
