Finger and Mind Exercise!!!
Sunday, November 08, 2020
My exercise has been mainly based on instrument playing: strings / woodwinds / piano. I find after breaking my wrist almost 2 years ago if I let one or two days go without practicing in between my online music lessons, my left hand gets very stiff.
This can also happen to the rest of our bones, we need to keep moving as we get older. With Covid, I have not been walking at the park as I used to, but I try to at least stretch my legs by walking safely around my city block. Not much but something. My goal is set for 9,XXX steps but this week I have been under the weather and have not reached my goal one time. That's ok, the body said no!!! I was afraid that I might have Covid, but I usually get sick this time of year, so I'm playing it out.
Working in my yard and buttery garden is another finger / hand exercise (all body exercise really!) and most important it's good for my mind and soul with these so troubling days.
So back to my finger exercise. I am teaching on line on and on Outschool to keep those fingers moving since I have ceased teaching in person since March due to Covit and since I live alone, that little interaction with parents and students gives me something to prepare for, to look forward to and to get dressed for!!! lol
Our weather here is beautiful - no Winter here, except when you send it my way from up North!! I wish it was safe to venture out but until then I will do what I like best, Music and Nature, not to mention taken care of all my pets (that's 500 steps in the morning and 500 or so in the evening!!!)
What exercise (besides exercise equipment) do you do during these troubling times?
