It's the start of a new week, and the start of a new school term for the kids. Good time to take stock and reconnect with ourselves. We thought we'd re-share a previous mat chat from Northstar, our Northstar Ju Jitsu system headquarters, on self-awareness. In the dojo, we constantly remind ourselves to plug into the awareness of how our body and our mind are moving. Let's take that practice outside the dojo as well. Be aware of the feeling of the clothes on our body, of the chilly air on our face, of the sound of a person's voice, of our emotions triggered by our thoughts and word and actions from others.
