Challenge

"A person who refuses to push the limits and live outside his comfort zone becomes brittle, loses elasticity and is prone to injury - mentally, physically and emotionally ." (Karrash 2012)

Resilience

Another way to explore the body's two levels of action

can be described as: reactive and responsive.

 

These terms stand for:

  • Reactive: active, responding to the outside world, doing ('human doing'),

​       challenging, outward-looking, stimulating

  • Responsive: receiving, quietly observing, being ('human being'),

       inward-looking, accepting, restorative

 

Both levels of action are useful, the essence is that they alternate, like a wave movement. Some people enjoy high waves, others prefer to keep it a little calmer. The aim is not for a situation somewhere in the middle, but rather for sufficient variety. So that all your physical and mental functions are sufficiently lively.

 

If the balance tips towards an overly reactive life, you can pay more attention to the left (blue) upper quadrant of the picture on the homepage. If it's all a bit too quiet, take a look around this (yellow) quadrant.

"The body is in a constant process of change, not necessarily aging" (Ida Rolf)
