I’ve heard the following phrase a few times since I started this Kettlebell Zen enterprise,
“yo, Foley…where’s the Zen?” (said in Rocky Balboa voice)
The “zen” is in the kettlebell AND in your mind & body. One needs to focus at the task at hand in order to safely execute the movement. The iron is unforgiving if there is any “negative self-talk,” or if the mind isn’t concentrating on the task at hand. A recent development has allowed a little more clarity in my life. Some of you are already aware of it, but others may not. It’s a a company called Headspace. Of the seven out of eight days that I have used this program, there was only one day that I felt a “little off center,” and that was the day I didn’t meditate! Lesson learned! It’s addictive..in a good way.! So give it a shot and tell me what you think when you come to class!
Just finished Day 7 of a 10 day trial and I’m loving it. It fits in really well with the “Slight Edge,” philosophy that I talked about a few weeks ago. “Be a little better today than you were yesterday. Repeat.”
