Top 10 Tai Chi Movements to Practice During the Holiday Season
December 18, 2022
The holiday season can be a stressful time. Beween buying gifts, going to work parties, and reuniting with family, it can knock you out of harmony with the universe.
In fact, compared with the summer months, statistics show that Tai Chi practitioners at this time of year are 37% more likely to rip out an irritating family member's heart and show it to them before they die.
That's why I recommend stopping for a few moments to breathe, calm your mind and center yourself by doing a short Tai Chi form designed to relieve your holiday stress and prevent your hand from striking out with five fingers of death.
Whether you're dealing with Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Festivus, this form will help you remain One with the Universe during the hectic days between now and the first of the new year.
Here are the Top 10 Tai Chi Movements for the Holidays:
- Buddha's Warrior Attendant Pounds Egg Nog
- Grasp the Elf’s Tail
- Part the Wild Reindeer’s Mane
- Hidden Spiked Punch
- Fair Maiden Works in the Kitchen
- White Ape Offers Cranberry Sauce
- Lazy About Wrapping the Gift
- Wave Gift Receipt Like Clouds
- Golden Turkey Loses Two Legs
- Step Back and Repulse the Fruitcake
