Working over virtual platforms have been technologically challenging at times yet I've really liked working through Zoom. It has been a great option to keep physically distanced and has helped me with my exercise verbal cues.
Words have greater meaning particularly when someone is trying to move their body at home and not particularly looking at me on the screen.
With that said, my #1 tool for Zoom isn't my voice. It is the non-verbal cues that can have the greatest impact. I have to be more of a body language detective and at time I don't know how someone is doing until I ask.
And what I ask is "give me a thumbs up, a so-so sideways thumb or thumbs down depending how you are feeling."
The thumbs tell me lots!
Keeping our thumbs moving well is "crucial" for Zoom success!
As I have shared this recent video on finger movements and exercises, it is now time to target our focus to the thumbs. Real Moves for Real Life thumbs edition.
Be sure to give this video a virtual thumbs up if you learned something new or simply appreciate the amazingness of your thumbs. 👍🏻 Click the thumbs up symbol on YouTube!
Stay well and happy moving,
