Sensations are constantly telling all of us when to move and when to rest, when to push ourselves and when to get more support, as well as how to align ourselves so that strain and injury are avoided.
The tricky part is that these body messages happen in the present moment, and most of us spend most of our time analyzing the past and planning/hoping/fearing for the future.
Want to learn how to interpret these body messages? Start by paying attention. The more kinds of sensations you can notice in your body and the more areas in your body you can feel, the clearer these messages will become. Then it's simple:
1. Pay attention to sensation
2. Try something new
3. Notice how the sensation changes
4. Choose the one you like
