Making a Cup of Tea with Parkinson's

In this video, I applied some of the techniques for movement initiation and fluidity which I had previously discovered, to a practical problem. You will see clearly that this was recorded whilst I was in a state of Bradykinesia (hard to move, rigidity, stiffness). Here, I have used one of my own "pain point" (being British) examples, namely making a cup of tea (hot and with milk!).

However, the video also shows the progress of the Out-Thinking Parkinson's ideas too. Here I can be seen using "crossing" movements extensively, by which I mean moving hand and arms across the body rather than out in front. This, for me, is a much less difficult way to move.

There is another lesson hidden in this video too. I am talking (to you) all the time. Indeed, I'm describing what I am doing and what I am going to do every step of the way. In doing so, I am also naturally visualizing in my own mind these movements. So in effect, when I recorded this, I was engaging different areas of my brain as part of the motion, i.e. those to do with visualization and speech...
