Well, I’ve done it again.
I’ve put another staff member to sleep who was watching a Chair Chi session I ran for an aged care center today.
As I was working with a group of elderly residents I noticed the staff member sitting nearby start to drift off to sleep. He was watching the gentle hypnotic Chi movements we were practicing and kept nodding off.
He was awake earlier when he participated and then he had to go and do something. When he returned he decided to sit and watch.
Big mistake. He fell asleep on the job.
The activities co-ordinator caught him drifting off and said to me, ‘that’s another staff member you have sent to sleep’. We all had a good laugh, even the staff member who woke from his deep sleep.
Ah, the magic of Chi.
