This happens quite often, but it doesn’t just happen in life and death situations. It can also happen while the body is at no risk at all. For example, it can happen while you’re sitting in a car for a four hour road trip, or while bending to lift something up. But what is common is that the body failed to perceive that something was wrong with the body, and lost awareness of its safety. That led to poor behaviors like not sitting or bending with good posture and form. This resulted in an injury.
You can see that awareness is the first step in changing behaviors. Our goal in the upcoming modules are to help you learn the concepts that lead to improved awareness of your body. Please continue.
