Keep It Moving: Lessons for the Rest of Your Life
Keep It Moving: Lessons for the Rest of Your Life | Twyla Tharp
1 post
One of the world's leading artists--a living legend--and bestselling author of The Creative Habit shares her secrets for harnessing vitality and finding purpose as you age. From insight to action, Keep It Moving is a guidebook for expanding one's possibilities over the course of a lifetime. At seventy-seven, Twyla Tharp is revered not only for the dances she makes--but for her astounding regime of exercise and non-stop engagement. She is famed for religiously hitting the gym each morning at daybreak, and utilizing that energy to propel her breakneck schedule as a teacher, writer, creator, and lecturer. This book grew out of the question she was asked most frequently: "How do you keep working?" In Twyla's own words: "This book is a collection of what I've learned in the past fifty-five years: from the moment I committed to a life in dance up until today...it identifies a 'disease' and offers a cure. That disease, simply put, is our fear of time's passing and the resulting aging process. The remedy? This book in your hands." Keep It Moving is a series of no-nonsense mediations on how to live with purpose as time passes. From the details of how she stays motivated to the stages of her evolving fitness routine, Tharp models how fulfillment depends not on fortune--but on attitude, possible for anyone willing to try and keep trying. Culling anecdotes from Twyla's life and the lives of other luminaries, each chapter is accompanied by a small exercise that will help anyone develop a more hopeful and energetic approach to the everyday. Twyla will tell you what the beauty-fitness-wellness industry won't: chasing youth is a losing proposition. Instead, Keep It Moving focuses you on what's here and where you're going--the book for anyone who wishes to maintain their prime for life.

I'm late this week. I had a migraine yesterday afternoon. Spent the whole gorgeous day sleeping. 🙄😖

As stated somewhere on my reviews, I've increased my book goal due to reading some #A2Z books. They're tiny. The 4th book was a read of a manuscript that's not published yet.

Laughterhp I see a lot of smiley faces! Looks like a great week! 3mo
