Stressed Workers and China

Courage is the human virtue that counts most — courage to act on limited knowledge and insufficient evidence. That's all any of us have."– Robert Frost

How true is this statement?  Who has unlimited knowledge, and more than enough of sufficient evidence when it comes to making difficult decisions or for that matter limited ones.  Sometimes we do act as if we are in the dark.  Robert Frost, you are right on.

Linda on Nails and Digger and I went out on the Wendel Robie trail for a short ride and run.  Digger prefers to be behind Linda so he can chase after her. When we get in front, Digger sometimes stops to wait for Linda. It is much easier for me to stay behind her, and not have to drag him along.

Another safe trail ride  for Linda with a surefooted horse, like Nails ,works for me.  Linda has a sound, well schooled horse that is great in both endurance and trail riding.  She did well with her horse selection.

Get a load of this article found in Wall Street Journal, September 14, 2011.  It is titled: China’s Remedy for Stressed Workers: “They Need the Hoohah.” I know you are dying to find out about the “Hoohah.” China has stressed workers also so they have joined the club.  According to scientists at China’s General Sports Administration, Chinese are facing more pressure than ever before, and they need a way to release that pressure.

The government promoted a 40 minute workout, full of kung fu type lunges and kicks that was est. by Chairman Mao in 1951 to train China’s proletariat in the fight against the capitalist West.  Currently the exercise has been overhauled to prepare the masses for the next stage of the fight-a long, a healthy future in front of their computers.  The scientists found after a full year of analyzing the way Chinese bodies changed since the eighth edition was released in 1997 and formulated  the best methods of combating the-stiffer necks, tighter shoulders ,and bigger bellies. Does this sound familiar? How are you dealing with too much time at the computer?  I know for me that running and sit ups have been useful for me.

Currently, they are incorporating vocal elements or tribal like chants to their calisthenics, and that is called Hoohah.  One might want to research their method, especially if you are spending lots of time at your computer.  Good luck to you.

It Has Nothing To Do With Age is available at Barnes & Noble, and soon on Amazon.  I will keep you posted.
