In the Alexander technique, ‘doing’ largely refers to certain misdirected actions that can be observed in a person’s responses, behaviour or manner of use; for example, a person stiffening, tensing, over-straining or trying too hard to do something than they really need in order to perform a certain action or to reach a particular goal.

In modern life with its overzealous focus on achievement, most of us chronically over-‘do’ in one way or another.

Also see ‘non-doing’. See other glossary terms and definitions.
