What They're Saying

I never realised that I tighten my armpits when I get frustrated, when I don't get the needle through the underside of the button into the hole when I'm sewing it onto a garment! I know I do the same thing when I'm on my computer, my phone, everything! and when I stop for a minute to think about what I'm doing, I can think of having more space under my armpits and then I don't tighten. Amazing!

I have a tendency to general stiffening when I'm frustrated. I'll try to remember to observe my whole self in action when I'm doing other things like working with electronics at my work.

Thank you! In the threading a needle and sewing on a button activities, I noticed my reaction to doing things with my hands, and amazed at how much easier the task became when I took a moment to wonder about how to coordinate this action. Perhaps avoiding setting up the activity of sewing on a button as being 'complex'!

Discovered what I do around upper arms and head during fine activity and that if I bring awareness to the relationship between fine work of the fingers and being able to keep my upper body free, and I can apply the same thinking to keyboarding or using devices, anything involving dexterity.

I tend to hold my breath when I'm concentrating. I really noticed my breathing in this workshop. I think I do that a lot!
