We might have appeared very quiet recently since we began lock down and our schools had to close for a while during the virus. It is just that we have been so busy trying to get as many classes online as we could. It has not been easy trying to move so many groups online, with so many technical challenges.
It really stood out last night when looking at our Tai Chi class how calm and controlled they all were. It was business as usual. They are still doing everything the medical officer of health was suggesting, just not panicking in the process. Stress triggers the Amygdala in the brain which leads to panic and bad decisions being made, like trying to corner the toilet roll market!!
As a professional London Tour Guide I spend a lot of time researching new tours. After hours of reading, searching, thinking about the visuals and logistics, my mind is cluttered with information which I try to sort into a coherent narrative I can weave through a proposed new tour. I have found it very useful to take breaks and do some Chi Kung and T'ai Chi.
