“The truth is, New Year's resolutions fail because so much of the time, people make resolutions in their heads — ones that don't resonate in their bodies. We try to make them happen through that old paradigm trap, ‘Mind over Matter’,” says Dello Joio, founder of The Way of Joy Spiritual Fitness Program.
“Bruce Lee once said, ‘Don't think, feel!’ and he was right! Whatever the changes you want to see — whether in your business, health, personal relationships or creative life — you have to feel it to see it. In other words, the secret to making resolutions that stick is to actually seed them in your body, not just in your mind.”
A martial arts practitioner for over 40 years Dello Joio initially began her studies as a way to protect herself on the street. She soon discovered there was much more to the arts than she had realized and began to look at how these “qi practices” might apply in our daily lives beyond self-defense.
According to Dello Joio, in Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as the ancient Chinese health practices called qigong, there is no real separation between mind and body. “So it is only through the embodiment of your thoughts, that you become the vehicle to make them happen in ‘real time’. When your body, thoughts, feelings and behavior are aligned, your energy becomes open, expansive, and assertive. You’re not fighting yourself anymore and you become unstoppable.”
