Mindfulness can make a difference in preventing injury that has the potential to carry through for a lifetime.
On a recent chair massage gig I had the opportunity to work on a former stripper who also did pole dancing. Mindfulness was far from her awareness one evening when she decided to have one too many to drink. She climbed her pole drunk. Unfortunately she decided to come down in a split. Where mindfulness would have saved her, the lack of it prevented her from stopping short before she met the ground. She landed dead center. The impact of the same travel up and down her body and left effects of pain and continual discomfort down her leg and up through her shoulders.
It pays to be mindful when it’s your life and body at stake.
