“The research on flow indicates that achieving a flow state helps improve self-awareness and self-esteem. It helps you learn and retain skills more effectively, and improves anxiety levels. Working on movement combinations with an emphasis on flow is a way of getting these benefits of a flow state through physical means.
And the more time you spend in that flow state, the more it will transfer into other areas of your life. Spending a fair amount of your training time on moving in this way can have a big impact on how you engage with the rest of your life and what’s important to you.

News — Largest outdoor Parkour park in Canada
“The Parkour park, designed by Parkour Vision and installed by Marathon Athletics, is connected to a pair of new playgrounds designed for children aged two to five, and five to 12. All of it rests on three inches of shock-absorbing rubber made from recycled tire, with a red and black pattern that offers kids the challenge of avoiding the red “lava” as they navigate the course. “We’re real proud of it,” said Mallory, who proposed transforming the aging Penzer into a destination park about a year ago. The $1.3 million proposal proceeded after the federal government added $500,000 from the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation to the $800,000 the city had put aside.”

In-depth — Common Causes of Arch Pain & Prevention With Foot Strengthening
“If you’ve ever walked barefoot on damp sand, you probably know what the imprint of your foot looks like. The barefoot imprint of most adults has a gap on the inner side, between the ball of the foot and the heel. That’s where the arches of the foot are. (Babies and toddlers don’t have an arch. In fact, children develop an arch when they’re 3 to 10 years old.)”
Bare Foot Strong is a font of great information. If you happen to have feet, this one is another must-read. – ɕ
