Craig and Seth Ruji discuss the mental aspects of their movement practice. Craig mentions a previous conversation where they discussed the mental side of their practice, and expresses interest in hearing Seth’s thoughts on the topic. Seth notes that discipline and planning are important factors in their training, as well as pushing themselves with challenging scenarios that they are not yet comfortable with. He also mentions the importance of being able to identify their strengths and weaknesses in order to create a plan for improvement.
The Mental Side of Movement
In this episode, Craig speaks with movement enthusiast Seth Ruji about the mental side of their practice. Seth emphasizes the importance of discipline and planning in his training, saying, “having the mindset and mentality to be able to structure and be disciplined in my training so that I can be incremental and continue to progress.” This approach allows him to make steady progress and achieve his goals.
Additionally, Seth discusses the importance of challenging oneself with uncomfortable scenarios. “The other side of it is the more hardcore specific side of challenging yourself to scenarios that you feel are uncomfortable with your current skill set.” By pushing himself out of his comfort zone and facing challenging situations, he is able to continue improving and growing.
Craig also expresses interest in hearing Seth’s previous thoughts on the topic, but Seth is unable to recall their previous exchange. This highlights the fact that our approach to the mental side of our practice can evolve and change over time.
Overall, the conversation between Craig and Seth emphasizes the importance of discipline, planning, and challenging oneself in order to continue improving and growing in one’s movement practice.
— Why does Movers Mindset exist?
The purpose of Movers Mindset is to create and share great conversations with movement enthusiasts. Each conversation feeds my insatiable curiosity, but I share them to turn on a light for someone else, to inspire them, or to give them their next question.
In the podcast, I talk with movement enthusiasts to learn who they are, what they do, and why they do it. I’m interested in the nature and philosophy of movement and in exploring themes like independence, self-direction, and human excellence. My interests color each conversation and provide some structure to Movers Mindset. But since I like to take the scenic route, every conversation ends up going somewhere unique.
I really appreciate your time and attention, and I don’t take it for granted.
— I need your support
I want to share more of these amazing conversations, with amazing people, but I’m limited by the cost of the project. Please support what I’m doing. Every dollar really makes a difference.
Since 2017, I’ve spent countless hours and dollars keeping Movers Mindset going. Everything has remained free and ad-free and alive thanks to patronage from listeners like you. I have no staff, no assistant… it’s just one maniac with a mic and a keyboard. If this labor of love makes your life more livable in any way, please consider aiding said maniac’s sustenance…
— Thank you!
My personal mission is creating better conversations to spread understanding and compassion. And Movers Mindset is one of the things I do in service of my mission. Drop by constantine.name for my weekly email, my other podcasts, writing and more.
The Movers Mindset project grew from conversations I started having as part of my personal journey rediscovering movement. The project started late in 2015, and it was initially simply a web site that shared others’ writing. The project grew, and in 2017 I started the podcast. I’ve worked extremely hard, but none of this would have been possible without so much help from so many people.
