Just a Minute

323. Just a Minute

I’ve been doing Egoscue exercises and positions since August of 2010, and I wrote about it in #53 in this series of postings. There was something that happened this morning as I was doing one of the timed positions. There is one position called Static Back and you lie on the floor with your feet up across a chair for five minutes.

Now I’ve gotten pretty good at counting out a minute. I know just about what speed to count. But today as I held my timer, I decided that I would not count, and I would not look at the timer. Instead I would just lie there until I thought one minute had passed and then I would check the timer. Five succeeding times I did not give it enough time.

When we say, “Just a minute…” about something, it seems like it’s going to be a very short time. The reality is that it isn’t that short. Check it out yourself. Get a timer, and start it, and then without counting in your head, let a period of time go by which you think is about a minute and then check it.

What impressed me this morning is that most of my days are about sixteen hours—from 7am to 11pm. That adds up to 460 minutes in each of my days. That’s impressive!

I’ll cherish them just a tiny bit more now—and I’ll see how well I can use them—or splurge them!
