As I write this article, most of the world lives in isolation due to the outbreak of COVID-19. However, although the pandemic has been devastating in many ways, I urge you turn negative to positive working on something that you neglected before. For example, I recently posted a video on several hand-eye coordination exercises. I have long emphasized the benefits of continuously checking hand-eye coordination. This is not exactly why I shared the video though. My goal was simply to highlight something different from the norm.
Before continuing, I will share a brief selection of exercises. Such work can be useful for athletes and does not require special equipment. In the clip you will see the following:
- Juggling balls
- Tennis balls
- Homemade ball reflex (tutorial here)
- Jump rope
- Homemade Speed Platform Bag
Outside hand-eye coordination
As the old saying goes, if you go through hell, continue, With this in mind, perhaps you can use this time to target the skill that you wanted to develop earlier, but did not bother to do. We are all stuck in this pandemic together. I wish everything went away tomorrow, but no one knows how long it will last. So why not use the time to learn something new or improve a certain skillNaturally, this does not require hand-eye coordination. It can be anything from reading more to learning a new language. Just try to nail something, so that when all this is said and done, you will feel better from it.
My own example
As a young boxer, I suffered from repeated injuries to my right arm. I had numerous fractures that eventually forced me to switch from fighting to training. During these failures, I learned one thing: make the most of the situationFor example, my left hand improved significantly because I could not use my right hand. Having lived in a cast for so long, I had no choice but to improve my left arm.
And although I do not compare my broken hands with the worldwide pandemic, the mindset that I developed in those days remains useful today. A bad feeling of what happened to you (or to the rest of the world) does not change the result. Instead, do something better because of the situation. Your future, I will be grateful to you.
In the end, we will all look back at a time when our cities were blocked and we were forced to live in isolation. When will this time come, what will you remember the most? Will it be the time you spend checking the news every hour to see if something has changed? Or will it be the time you spent learning a new skill?
Before answering this question, remember your future. What would he or she prefer? Decide for yourself, and then confirm your decision.
