Hi, I'm Kirsty

I'm here to help you design your best future.  One free of regret. 

You see, today more than ever people are walking around dead on the inside.  Unsatisfied, unfulfilled and wishing there was more. But it doesn't have to be this way!

Neuro Fitness - Retraining My Brain

Neuro Fitness - Retraining My Brain

I've been experimenting a bit with different types of exercise lately (hula hooping, stretching/balancing and silks) to see the type of effect it has on my body.  Not in a physical way, but a neuro fitness way.  You see, my left side is numb - pretty much all of the time.  When I train hard, it likes to curl up, and often I get confused about what it is that I am trying to do.  

So by trying out some more gentle types of exercise that require a bit more brain power or coordination has been super interesting.  The hula hooping took a bit of effort to get started, but then it seemed to click.  I can now spin it for about 30 seconds, but the second I try to do anything with my arms or to move my lower body, it's all over.  I assume that's quite common, but I'm determined to train my brain to be able to do it.  Watch this space.

Silk on the other hand is a totally different ball game.  There's lots of time to take breaks and to readjust physically, but I simply CANNOT remember what it is I am trying to do.  My teacher will tell me about 3 steps very slowly and calmly (yes, she has the patience of a saint!), but before she has even got half the words out, I have lost the first part of what she is saying.  It got so bad that she actually asked why I was finding it so difficult to remember.  "Oh just Memory problems" was my reply.  She probed further until I admitted that I had had a brain injury as a kid.  "I'm all good now though" I said wanting to take things back to being 'normal'.

So whilst it may have taken some very specific instruction to get me there, and I may only be 3cm off the ground, to get up into this position definitly feels like a win to me.  In ways this less physical activity is harder than a something like an intense Crossfit session, which goes to show that more work can be done. Watch out brain, I'm on a mission to make you stronger...
