Saturday Random: RUFF and ten minute workouts

Barely squeezing this post in to make it on time for a Saturday Random post—I’d better type fast!

RUFF 2015

The Ryerson University Film Festival 2015 was held last night and tonight. I attended both nights and wow, such a lot of young talent! Hayley had two films playing, one on each night. They were both amazing, and I’m hoping they’ll be online somewhere soon so I can post the links or the videos themselves here.

Hayley didn’t win for best cinematography, unfortunately, but the film she produced and DoP’d won for best screenplay, so that was nice.

Ten minute workout

Day two of my ten minutes to big changes plan, and so far I’ve managed both the meditation and the Morning Pages. Haven’t had any luck with the workout, though, and I think it’s because I don’t actually have a short ten minute workout handy for first thing in the morning.

A couple of weeks ago, though, I received an issue of the Further newsletter headlined The Ancient Fitness Routine That Transforms You in Ten Minutes a Day. I hadn’t yet decided on my ten minutes a day thing, but I did save the newsletter and I think this might be the thing for me to try. Except I’m not sure about that first part—I get dizzy pretty easily so it will be interesting to see if I can spin around.

Author Hugh Howey also had some good things to say about this workout, which he calls the Five Tibetan Rites.

What is beyond doubt is their efficacy. If you do these every day, you will see results in a week. You will see profound differences in a month. Practitioners claim that these exercises will keep you young, and I’m a believer. They fixed a nagging shoulder injury, and my back has never been stronger.

Sounds pretty good to me. He even made some videos which should be helpful.

Do you know of a ten minute workout I can try? I’d love to add more to my list!

    You should check out Youtube. Maybe just search for 10-minute workouts or just workouts or cardios or pilates, if you know what you want to do. I do all my workouts that way now through Youtube. There’s someone talking in the room and a way to make sure I am getting the moves right.

    Congrats to Hayley! Yes, if you do find the video online, let us know!
