Let Your Body Go With the Flow
I have learned a valuable lesson and that is you can take being active to the extreme (and not in a good way at times). Taking it to the extreme can result in wear and tear to your joints (repetitive motions), really sore muscles (internally – take time to heal) and even result in injury. That is NOT GOOD for you and your body!
I am still learning how to tune into my body and its mechanics. How you move, how you breath and how you stretch. Your spine, bones, joints, and muscles will “Thank You”! You may even decrease, eliminate or avoid pain. That would be nice!
The worse thing you can do to your body is sit for long periods of time. Then you add the hunch to the mix; computer, cell, tablet, etc. We will have to start reminding each other to sit up straight, head up and shoulders back. That will be the new workout in the workplace of 8 hour, 10 hour, 12 hour, even 14 hour days. SCARY, right!
Then there are those “Stressors” that surround us on a daily basis. How to handle, how to avoid, how to not have them take over our lives, etc. That is a work in progress for me as well as learning how to relax. I feel like a rubberband or stuck on a springboard some days. It takes a physical toll on you as well as zaps your energy!
