Ward's Questions

  • Apr 18th, 2019 at 11:57PM

I've been pretty crappy about posting. That's one of the parts of Body 1 that I did not do well and definitely think that the social piece of Kenzai is one of the keys to it's success for those who do well. So...in the interest of being a better blogger...here is my go at Ward's Questions:

Where are you? Hong Kong. Moved here last July from New Hampshire. I've lived abroad when I was younger, but first time as an official expat.

How do you spend your time? Left job to move to HK so that has freed up much time. I've filled this time with sports and other "things I'll do when I have time"...like learning to make pottery, kid's stuff (I have 3), and travel

Why Kenzai Mind? My biggest obstacle to my fitness and longevity is my on again/off again exercise habits and somewhat mindless eating. I would love to make meditation a daily routine and improve my ability to stick with daily exercise and more mindful eating.

How do you get here? Who introduced you to Kenzai? My fellow Dragon Boater and Kenzai coach Elissa. Just watching her kick ass in the DB is enough to sell me on Kenzai.

What's your favorite season? Why? Fall in New England. October/November in HK (= summer in NE)

Are you facing obstacles to this training cycle? Overcoming my snooze-button habit.

Live free or die. Hell yeah. From one granite stater to another, so happy you decided to hit the intro, Jennifer! How's the Minding? Harder or easier than you expected?

    Hi Ward! Definitely missed the snow this year....not the shoveling, but the slopes for sure. Hardest part of Mind is just developing the routine. Once the house is awake and the day gets started, its out the window. AM is by far the best time for me. I’m now setting an alarm to remind me to meditate mid-day if I miss a morning. Love the lessons and enjoying the longer sessions (10-12 min) more than short ones.

      I read you loud and clear. I found Mind success in the spaces in between. Some days it was before bed. Others it was five minutes before a meeting with the door closed. Other days the dog licked my face. My advice, stick with it.

      And speaking of that. Girl, where did you go? 12 days no blog. Yikes. Time to bring it to email I guess!
