#8 Reason to get ready for World Tai Chi and Qigong Day ….
Nothing is closer to our life than the breath. Think about it.
No breath – No life. It’s that simple. Want to have a good life? – Cultivate good breath.
Tai chi and qigong are ways of getting in close touch with your breath, cultivating a healthy awareness of it.
When we know what’s up with the breath, we have a pretty good idea of how the rest of the body and mind are doing.
When the breath suffers so does the rest of us. But when we gently pay attention to the breath, making it stronger, our bodies and minds become stronger and healthier too.
So, World Tai Chi & Qigong Day? Sounds like a slam dunk to me.
