You’re so busy to take in the wonder, not even enough time to take a moment to mourn the loss of the precious time burning away. What do you do? Here are a few ideas.
Tip #1—Where you do tai chi.
Get away from where you do your business in order to do tai chi without interruptions.
Tip #2—When to begin tai chi
When you wake, even before you get out of bed, give a thought to tai chi. When you rise, at least, inhale three times deeply, fully and think about one thing, one move, from tai chi that you did the last time you practiced.
Tip #3—Be kind to yourself
Pay your respects to yourself and every little effort you make to break the routine that has driven you to the point of wanting to learn something from outside of that routine, for example, TAI CHI!
Tip #4—It doesn’t have to be all or nothing
I believe that taking an hour out once a week to learn it in the class is not enough. However, I don’t expect anyone to at first spend hours doing tai chi at home. But I think that you can do a minute or two now and again. Simply standing in wuji is doing tai chi. Taking three full complete breaths is not nothing. Gathering your arms above your head and feel them drop slowly down in front of you like a stream of water pouring down a gentle slope is something. Try it. It just might make you feel good.
