When addressing challenges we often just try harder, and often with terrible results.
In the following TED Talk, a scientist/feldenkrais practitioner goes over 4 Body/Mind Principles we can use for Learning:
1. Start within your comfort zone and make it even more comfortable.
2. Not too hard, not too easy: Pick an interesting challenge within your reach.
3. Move away from your desired place, and come back to it from different angles.
4. Play with it, connect it to other things you know, make it your own.
In this talk she shows a short Feldenkrais lesson with these steps. Then she goes over a simple mathematical problem using these steps too!
