21. The 2 Healthy Effects of Walking — 8 Comments

  1. Wondering if you know “the Diamond Gait”? Developed by a chiropractor(I think?) last name Diamond. As you walk you count your steps. Whatever the count for the inhalation, you exhale one more for the exhalation. So, inhale count 4, exhale count each step 5. The count numbers can vary, but the odd numbering makes each inhale start on a different foot – this helps with the left-right brain balance…it also helps increase oxygen intake and complete exhalations. Try it and let me know what you discover.

    • Dear Hoyt,
      No, hadn’t heard of it. Could you give me a link where I can find more information?

  3. I would love to see the MIR METHOD VIDEO for CHILDREN.
    I have followed instructions, but can’t seem to find the right page.

    Could you please send, or redirect me to it?

    Thanks so much!

    • Dear Ruth,
      I am sorry, but the MIR-Method video for kids no longer exists. It turned out that all the work with the MIR-Method needs to be done by adults. If the adults shake off their old burdens, children will lighten up!
      Good luck!
      Greetings! Mireille Mettes

  4. Hello

    I use the MIR method from time to time… it’s like I stop when I do not need it anymore (?). I love doing it as it makes me in contact with myself. I have no health problem just some fears!!!
    Thank you for sharing it

    • Dear Catherine,
      Thank you for sharing! Yes, many people do that. They stop and pick it up again when they need it. Some people forget about it, because they do NOT want to be in contact with themselves, but with you it is clear that you enjoy renewing the contact. I hope all your fears will leave you and you will feel totally free!
      Good luck!
      Mireille Mettes
