If you’re looking for a way to reduce stress, consider tai chi (TIE-CHEE). Originally developed for self-defense, tai chi has evolved into a graceful form of exercise that’s now used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions. Often described as meditation in motion, tai chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements.
What is Tai Chi?
Tai chi is an ancient Asian tradition that, today, is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing.
Tai chi, also called tai chi chuan, is a noncompetitive, self-paced system of gentle physical exercise and stretching. Each posture flows into the next without pause, ensuring that your body is in constant motion.
Tai chi is low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. In fact, because tai chi is low impact, it may be especially suitable if you’re an old adult who otherwise may not exercise.
It can be effective in improving flexibility, balance, coordination, and concentration. You may see an increase in physical strength and stamina as well as increased range of motion. Many have found the gentle moves, stretching, and turning of tai chi to be an effective therapy for various health problems, including arthritis.
Be sure to wear loose fitting clothes that are not binding. Something that will stretch is good such as sweatpants. Good shoes to wear are ones with a flexible flat sole, like KEDS or SAS sandals.
