I keep seeing people, everywhere I go, who are slumped and crumpled. Bunched up, curled over and tightly wound.
I want to grab them and say: “Hey! My friend! Straighten up! Stretch your spine out!”
We’re all so sedentary. We’re all so disconnected from our bodies, these days. Oh these days! It’s a crying shame. It makes me want to cry.
Modern living is undeniably amazing. So much cool stuff, so much opportunity!.. and right at our fingertips no less!
Somehow though, so many of us seem to be getting lost in the things and the bustle… and in that we lose the appreciation of experience. We don’t connect with how we feel. We don’t spend time in nature. We don’t even have a circadian rhythm. I see it all the time: in patients, family, friends, strangers and myself. That’s life, hey.
But it doesn’t have to be so dire, so crumpled and dang: small changes can make big differences. Start small.
Start here: be upright, and be relaxed. I just came across this great TED talk by Esther Gokhale. It’s short, interesting and practical. Have a squizz.
Get yourself moving daily and connect in with how you feel, how you actually physically feel. It will makes a difference. Promise.
