The Bach warmup

by Elisa Lemma


Bach music every morning, play it if you can, or else, listen to it.

There is something about the patterns, repeating, intertwining, always different but always the same,

It is exactly the balance between the new and the familiar, that your brain needs

It has a way of developing from within, from itself, like a spiral


Do time-consuming things that have no practical sense. Lay down in the morning sun switching off your phone Is like a way of reminding yourself that you still have time, you posses it.

Do a yoga breathing sequence: Lay down with your knees bent, start to breathe through your stomach keeping your chest still and continue by moving the chest. Then create a ball of air in your belly and move it up and down. Then stay still breathing as you wish for as long as I want.
