When we talk about the “means whereby,” we are talking about what happens from the start of an activity to the end of the activity. This is usually the time when we are implementing unconscious movement and it’s the time we need to be more aware of.
Some examples are:
- How do you we hold our toothbrush while brushing?
- What happens when we run late?
- How do we take the time while putting on our coats, boots, gathering our keys, closing the door?
We need to be more aware of these moments and how we’re using our body. We have more time than we think we do.
When we’re not being constantly pulled down and in during these activities, we have more space for our bodies to work more efficiently. This creates more body awareness (in space) as we go through these small movements. These movements are the “means whereby.”
