How To Be Human

Less isn’t always more.

I’ve always been drawn to mindful practices. I love being given an opportunity to go slowly, to take my time absorbing details and finding paths of least resistance. I’m a firm believer in this approach.

Take my job for example. I’m an Alexander technique teacher, which means I probably use the word “less” around twenty times per hour. “Less effort”, “less tension”, “less overanalysing”, less, less, less.
