During a lesson we practise and have the experience of active sitting – sitting in balance whilst sending directions – without a forward stimulus caused by a computer screen
So to work on yourself – sit looking at your room – be aware notice
Swivel round look at your screen – what happens?
(You will notice that the screen impacts your balance – one gives up control to a screen!)
This is how awareness/insight into our particular habit patterns accumulates.
The problem is the “doing” caused by an external stimulus – or put another way our reaction to the screen sets in motion a chain of unconscious habitual patterns – together termed our “use”. Poor use will affect our functioning over time and impact our life experience.
Can you work on your computer as a secondary activity with your primary interest instead being on your Primary Control?
This is what we practise continually during the lesson and a key part of FM’s insight.
This applies to all activity – talking, cooking…..and is what we term “thinking in activity”
It’s a complete change in approach to all of life’s activities.
