This week I invite you to bring your attention to the intensity of your grip on the steering wheel. Every once in a while, when you stop at a traffic light, bring your attention to your grip. Notice the amount of force you are using to hold the steering wheel. Are you using more effort than necessary for a secure grip? Or not? How much effort is there in your hands, forearms, shoulders?
Play with it. Grip tighter. Grip less. What is the “Goldilocks” grip that allows you to drive safely, but doesn’t carry unnecessary strain? (To avoid distraction, please, don’t do this while the car is moving, Awareness is great, but safety first!)
About this blog:
Every week I post a new question to direct your attention to one aspect of your movement habits that you might not be aware of..
Take a few moments here and there throughout your week to sense what's being asked - without judgement, without trying to correct it. Just being curious to notice what you do.
