Body Cognition - The Method
First of all I am not nearly done reading this book yet. This is not a book you just hurry through and read. It is a book you want to absorb. For me this book is about understanding your body and finding the best way to work with how your body moves to make your body stronger. Everyone is unique so you have to adjust what you do to what your body can handle.
The way your body feels has a lot to do with your well being, getting to know your body gives you an insight in how to work with what your body has to offer and most of the time even improving both body and mind.
Body Cognition: The Method really makes sense and had enlightened me in so many ways. With each chapter I learn more and more about how the body moves,
Being a mother I have put my children first for many years and now have come to the point where my body has suffered so it is time to get my body and mind aligned so that I will be here for many more years to come. I suffer from Fibromyalgia and learning about my body is a very important aspect for me to be able understand.
My Dr. has been telling me for years to slow down, enjoy the time I have with my family, etc. I think he understood what my body was capable of more then I did, I always pushed my body past the breaking point. With a low immune system, blood disorder, and kidney problems if I felt good I did all I could do, then found myself down in bed sick.
As an adult with Fibromyalgia thrown on top of everything else I still find myself pushing myself on good days to get as much as I can done because I have fallen behind so much on things that needed to be done.
While I write this I am catching up on mountains of laundry, with mountains left to fold ( I know hard habits die hard). I am trying to pace myself but my mind says you can do this, you used to be able to do all of this and more in a few hours. Now this same task takes me days, more like weeks in reality. Same for doing dishes they never end.
If you are interested in learning more about your body and how it works and how to work with what you have this might just be the book you are looking for.

What Body Congniton: The Method has to say about their book.
Since the development of "Body Cognition" in the 1960s and 1970s, thousands of people have experienced it. However, when we ask: What is "Body Cognition", some of the answers are given in the negative form: this is not gymnastics in the usual sense; this is not a treatment for back pains only, and so on. How, then, can we define the "Body Cognition" method: education for a proper body movement? Training and preparing the body? Healthy gymnastics? These are titles which indicate several aspects of the method. The fundamental assumption of "Body Cognition" is that the right movement is beneficial to our physical and mental well-being and learning the right movement can considerably facilitate the solution of a long series of prevalent bodily problems.
The present book constitutes an ID of the method: an attempt to explain extensively, present reasons arguments and demonstrate its theoretical aspect as well as display its practical implementation. The description of bodily occurrences ranges from the unique and individual to the general, from the personal to the comprehension of the common as well as vice versa – from generalizations to the individual case. Each chapter illustrates the approach from a different perspective but all of them emphasize the method's principal and unique trait: observing solid and general anatomical facts and, based on them, understanding their practical implications for the physical conduct from a health starting point. Moreover, the book shows the way the method relates to issues not usually associated with movement: physical therapy, personal development, learning, thinking and behavior.
The order of the chapters invites a linear reading, evolving according to their structural logic, and enabling the reader to benefit from the support given by each chapter to those that follow it. However, each chapter can stand by itself and refers to the others as the need may arise. Thus, the book can be read in any order, browsing freely between the chapters.
The book is designed for two main reader groups. The first group comprises all those interested in their body and health and want to delve deeper into the body out of personal and intellectual inquisitiveness. The second consists of professionals dealing with all the body therapy disciplines. The chapter topics and level of thoroughness are adjusted to both groups. Hence, all readers can find in the book what they are looking for in accordance with their level of interest and depth.
