Mindfullness-BUSRM Exercise and/or Therapie 

BUSRM:   Balance Upright Symetric Rhythmic Movement

 

For who is this meant?

It can be used for therapeutic or non therapeutic purposes. 

As a therapy: Are you suffering from light to medium depressivity, sleeplessness, insomnia, fear, stress, post traumatic stress, ADHD, excessive worry and anxiety.

As an exercise when done for longer periods: It will improve your sense of welbeing. You will be able to deal better with your emotions, feelings, thoughts, longings and focussing ability.   And also improve general physical health in many areas such as your blood circulation, heart, muscles, skeletal posture, breathing, nerves, better memory, reduced risk of  dementia later in life, to mention a few.


Short Descriptions

It involves dedicating one to one and a half hour per day, every day. You may think that an hour and a half is too long but it is quite realistic and achievable as you will learn to work within your limits. I have attempted to describe it and some of it's effects here below. If you choose to go ahead with this therapy, you will be guided and coached in this movement therapy during the first session. Please see the video below to give you an idea of what is involved. (under construction)

You will continually  alternate  between the physical and mental activity. In the process of practicing this  therapy you will learn how to direct your thoughts and bring about permanent positive changes in your life. This exercise is done in combination with mindfullness.

During one and a half hour you will have many thoughts naturally. The second important part of this therapy is what do you do with these thoughts. Next to the physical therapy, you will spend much time reflecting, working things through, relativizing, understanding past experiences, planning your day, establishing your short and longterm goals. In the long term, this therapy can bring about permanent physiological, mental and emotional change. It can be compared to mindfullness, becoming aware of the relationship between your thoughts, feelings, aspirations/longings and your physical body.

Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one's attention to experiences occurring in the present moment. Mindfulness is used for helping people who are experiencing a variety of psychological conditions. For example, mindfulness practice is being employed to reduce depression symptoms, to reduce stress, anxiety, and in the treatment of drug addiction. The practice of mindfulness also appears to provide numerous therapeutic benefits to people with psychosis, and may also be a preventive strategy to halt the development of mental health problems.


This exercise/ therapy can be described as having six focal  points.

Mindfullness

Mindfulness as a practice is described as:

  • "Paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally"
  • "Bringing one’s complete attention to the present experience on a moment-to-moment basis"
  • "Recognize the thought or emotion and give full attention to it."
  • "Accept the thought or emotion in its fullness."
  • "Investigate the thought or emotion with curiosity and pay attention to its qualities (whether it is busy, clear, confused, mild, intense,associated imagery and somatic sensations, shifts in the thoughts and emotions, etc.)" Try to understand how/ why this thought came about and come to a decision how you would like to otherwise deal  with this emotion or thought. By understanding it you can give it meaning and a place in your total understanding of yourself. 
  • "Nonidentify with the thought or emotion, being compassionate with the thoughts and emotions without getting lost in the story they tell."


BUSRM - Balanced, Upright, Symetric, Rhythmic, Movement

Balanced

Means being in proper and equal arrangement around one central point.

You seek a sense of balance. Balance is important because you will waste the least amount of physical and mental energy. This will maximize your energy reserve necessary for  other tasks, whether it be  physical, mental or emotional.

 Upright

Is the state of being erect,  in bodily  posture.

It will give you a sense of self, your sense of 'I am' in your immediate surrounding. Your spine will attain a healthy vertical posture. 

Symetric

Is the state of being balanced and equally proportioned in size, form or movement.

There is a correspondence in movement on both sides of our axis.. A symetric reciprocal movement.

Symentry gives a very strong and ordered sense of balance and harmony.

Rhythmic

It is movement with uniform recurrence of a beat.

By moving with rhythm you will come in touch with  your own inner rhythm. Rhythm can give a sense of wellbeing and will give you energy that will be the drive to keep going. Rhythmic movment will still your mind and you will be able to think more focussed. 

Cadans refers to a rhytmic movement. Between the upward movement which requires a small effort and the downward movement is a stat e of falling. Between the effort and the falling is a monemt if rest that repeats itself every interval. Cadans is from de latin word cadere: to fall.  Rhythmic movement has a history of being used for increasing learning and deepening understanding. 

 Movement

Is the particular style of moving, namely balanced, upright, symmetric and rhythmic.

It is a vertical up and down movement while keeping ones back, shoulders and head perfectly in the vertical position.
