The Jigsaw Problem | Hilary King, MSTAT


The Jigsaw’s Out of it’s Field

It’s that point of 12 months. Out comes my new jigsaw and now I’ve a number of challenges. The primary was to determine if the desk must be lined with jigsaw items. With Covid round, there can be no friends at Christmas, so sure, the desk can maintain the jigsaw.

The second problem is to search out all the perimeters and line them up the place they may match. I’ve began looking and I gently rummage round within the field. I discover fastidiously, so I don’t break any of the jigsaw items.  I’m already confused as a result of the nook items are completely different colors from the picture on the field!


So many jigsaw items to hunt via!

I’ve not achieved a jigsaw for a very long time and I have to get my eye in. It’s arduous to search out what I’m on the lookout for. I discover my shoulders and higher again are starting to ache a little bit – that didn’t take lengthy to occur! So what was I doing to trigger that?

I had acquired misplaced within the exercise and I had begun curl down over the desk to see the jigsaw. So I’d began getting a bit tense after which achy. How simple it’s to lose consciousness of our physique use once we get engrossed! It’s not stunning I used to be a bit achy, if you keep in mind that our heads weigh approx 5 kg or 11 kilos. Our heads are so heavy, if we don’t assist them with a simple poise and steadiness, the load will drag us down.

My grandson is an efficient trainer! See how freely and simply he appears to be like down

My grandson is an efficient trainer for me and after I see how he strikes, it jogs my memory to come back again myself and consider my very own physique use. He has such a stunning simple method of transferring. Right here he’s trying down, but he isn’t dropping his head and neck forwards as I had simply achieved. He’s folding forwards from his hip joints and his muscle groups are working collectively in a quiet and balanced method – simply as I educate individuals to do in Alexander classes.  (Instructor educate thyself!) You possibly can sense the connection from the highest of his head, alongside his backbone and right down to his coccyx and sitting bones.

So my third and most necessary problem is that after I do my jigsaw, I’ll to take action with extra consciousness. I’ll hinge forwards from my hip joints in order that I can see what I’m doing and take frequent breaks – as I do after I’m working at my pc. Possibly I don’t have to play so intensely (in-tensely – acquired it?).  Simply because I’m having enjoyable and supposedly enjoyable, it doesn’t imply that I don’t have to take care of myself.
