Mixing Things Up In Your Training Can Help You Break Out of Indoor Boredom
I was in San Francisco California this week and happened by a park where there were many people doing Tai Chi. It got me thinking that it’s always a good idea to break out and do things different in your training.
Obviously, when we’re at the studio we practice indoors, in the same room, facing the same direction, etc. With summer coming, it’s a good time to consider getting outdoors and mixing things up a bit.
- Train in the woods
- Train in a park
- Train in a swimming pool
- In a parking structure
- Train on the beach
You should also wear your everyday work clothes… try things with sunglasses on… train with a backpack on… put on your favorite hat… or whatever your regular attire is during the summer months. You should even practice at different times of the day so you’re not in “Kenpo mode” just at night (like when we have classes).
It’s all about mixing things up and doing things differently to spice up your training. Try it. It works.
