30 Days of Constructive Rest


My friend and colleague (and website designer) Imogen Ragone, is conducting a wonderful experiment in the power of Constructive Rest.  I have decided to join her in this 30-day challenge.  I want to deepen my understanding of this simple procedure for “doing nothing” – yet gaining everything. Taking 10-20 minutes a day in semi-supine can have revolutionary, life-enhancing benefits, including:


  • an increased ability to remain calm under stress

  • natural realignment of the body

  • clarity of thought and improved ability to focus

  • more ease and balance in movement

  • improved, healthier sleep cycles

I invite you to join me in this daily experience of self-care.  The most challenging thing about it is committing to give yourself that few minutes a day.  I’ll be sharing what I’m learning with regular blog posts here. I’d love to hear what you’re discovering too, so please leave your comments, and start following me if you aren't already.

Imogen provides full and clear instructions about how to engage in the Constructive Rest process.  Of course, the best way to learn is by coming to see me for an Alexander lesson!  Constructive Rest with hands-on guidance? All I can say is, aaahhhh…
