Balance is such a big part of what we do in Tang Soo Do. When we start class, we have a moment of silence. This time is to help us get balanced for class. Taking deep cleansing breaths helps us to focus our mind on the task at hand.

With our mind focused, we will easily detect when our body is not balanced. With this awareness, we can calibrate ourselves so that we are more centered.

When we close class, we finish with another moment of silence. This time is great for reflecting what we completed.

Try starting the day with a moment of silence and ending it with the same approach. This is one of many ways to help us be more balanced in our daily lives. Best wishes!
