In the last newsletter we discussed harmonizing eye projects. In this newsletter we learn to harmonize fatigue.

For all Figures below; hold until you feel a pulse (or hold for 2 minutes if pulse is not detected).

  • Fig 1. First hold your middle finger left then right hand, or vice versa. To maximize the result, exhale, drop your shoulders, smile and naturally inhale as you hold each digit. Many people do multiples of 9 exhalations and inhalations, up to 36 times per thumb/finger. You can also do this breathing practice with any of the holds below. Just adapt accordingly.
  • Fig 1. Fig 2. Place your left hand on your pubic bone and your right hand on your coccyx.

Testimonial on self help for fatigue:

"I taught a two day class on weaving fabric earlier this year. The first day was wonderful, but exhausting. I talked almost non-stop all day. When I woke up the next morning, I was so tired! But as soon as I swallowed it was clear that it was more than just being tired -- I had lost my voice. What came out when I spoke sounded like a very faint imitation of Marlon Brando in The Godfather.

As I lay there in bed wondering how I could teach another day, the picture of Lynne Pflueger holding her high 19 while she was teaching came to me. I set my alarm, rolled on my side to get comfortable, and held my high 19/high 1 for 15 minutes, (see fig 4) followed on general principle by 15 minutes with my 1s (holding inside of knees). Although I dozed off, my hands were trapped in place by my position, and they were still in place when the alarm went off.

When I got up, I had energy and my voice was back. After teaching all day, I packed up all the equipment and fiber and made the five hour drive back home without a problem.
