Re: What's your daily practice?

From experience and advice from teachers I make every physical thing I do a potential workout; and a great chance for concentrating on breathing. Another thing is to switch up your prominent hand or side when doing everyday activities to the other....quite awkward and uncomfortable but you will hit unused muscles, learn about your body and maybe become just a little more ambidextrous.
Running or a cardio substuitute...I'm guilty of not maintaining a regular regimen in this department but it's paramount for physical well being.

Bruce Lee stated that one should simulate an attack/defense at any time, anywhere, throughout the day <not a direct quote> : walking, doing the dishes, sitting...etc.. Ya you will get funny looks...but anyone can see the benefit of this in the light of reaction time/technique/imagination and the fact that thugs don't wait until you're ready.

Self-discipline is the chief element of self-esteem; and self-esteem the chief element of courage. Thucydides
