Last October, I started the10-Series of bodywork called Structural Integration (SI). SI is deep tissue bodywork that involves manipulation of fascia. The series is a process of organization which brings order to the connective tissue of the body through structural alignment. If none of that made any sense, lol, it didn’t make sense to me when I started the series either!!
Three months of pressing & processing later, I’m happy to report that I finished my 10th and final session in the series yesterday. I can also report that I now understand exactly what SI means and more importantly my body now knows what organization feels like. I feel different, beyond properly aligned, I feel properly organized. SI has brought about organization in my body and this past weekend, without any fight from my psyche, I started applying organization to my environment. I tackled my clothing closets, while my husband cleaned out the attic and worked on the bonus room. When I got overwhelmed by the magnitude of ‘stuff’, I jumped online or journaled. It worked. I’d calm down and then get right back at de-cluttering until I finished my closets. Progress!
At work today, I shared my de-cluttering story with a co-work and he listened intently. He then asked if I had heard of “Getting Things Done”. I said no, is it a book? He said it is a book, but it’s also a movement. Like Sparkpeople, he said GTD is changing people’s lives. I decided to check it out, as I am always looking at ways to improve the quality of my life.
Here’s the link he gave me for Getting Things Done:
Here's general info of SI:
File this one in the "Why did I ever think that heel would be comfortable?@#!"
I don't know how I ever walked in these when I was 75 lbs heavier.
