Water and Recreation: Are You Having Fun Floating Your Boat?

This blog is part of a series; its original title was Heilkunst Basics : Senior Kindergarten

Once you’re getting a good rhythm with all your new habits you learned in Junior Kindergarten, you’ll probably feel ready to tackle your next lessons in Senior Kindergarten.

  • Water – while you learned about the importance of drinking enough (quantity) of water in Junior Kindergarten, now it’s time to learn something about the quality of the water you drink. This is topic with a number of factors and dimensions which can’t all fit into this article, but it is where we will start to address issues of water filtration (where needed), and how to assess the variety of quality available in terms of bottled water from different sources. The ideal form of water is one which naturally contains levity forces, and which has spontaneously bubbled up to the surface from an underground spring, without the need to be drilled or pumped up. As an example, Fiji Water fits into this category.
  • Recreation – This word is preferable to ‘exercise’ which most people think of as a 4-letter word. There are two aspects to recreation – one which involves a movement of the physical body, and the other which involves the application of the creative mind. The key to recreation is to find activities which are a pleasure for you to do, and that you won’t have a hard time to do on a regular basis. In terms of the physical side of recreation, the dual principles of “slow burn” contrasted with “PACE” or “Peak 8” are the ideal model to strive for. If your current routine involves a lot of couch time, then build up to this very slowly. On the creative side, it is important to understand the proper rhythm between activity and rest. True rest doesn’t mean to do nothing, or to “veg out”, but it is a sort of “active” rest, when the creative mind is engaged.
