We all have the idea that time fixes everything.
Given enough time, things just seem to go away or get better, or simply don’t matter anymore.
If only that was so. It’s just an apparency. It only seems so.
In terms of Movement Medicine, one has to take the time to undo it.
Within reason, it’s not such a big deal what a person has done, but rather what he or she did not take the time to undo. There has to be a balance of sorts.
Very little in life is that big of a deal, if you can undo it, right?
One can sit at the computer and work on the “Smith Account” for 10 hours, but this comes at a price, and in terms of your body, and overall mental and spiritual health there is a debt that has to be paid.
With all of that sitting and neglect of other things in a person’s life, he or she must take the time to restore balance.
If a person sits, he has to un-sit. If he stands, he has to un-stand, if he runs, or does a lot of yard work, he has to un-run, or un-yard work.
One cannot have a one-way flow of motion or activity, or non-motion or non-activity.
One breathes in, he breathes out.
I wish I could tell you exactly what to do, but I can’t. I can only say that a person has to reverse the flow every once in a while throughout the day.
Most of what people do is inflow all day and night long and do so in a rather fixated position.
One way flows for too long of a time can cause poor health and unhappiness.
Computers, T.V., cell phones, earbuds are all in flow with very little outflow. This can really be a problem, especially if the person is sitting in a fixed position like a statue.
Think of a balloon. Keep inflowing air, and it eventually bursts.
I know you’ve felt that sensation before, if not right now.
Take the time to outflow, and move!
When people sit for a living, we have them stand, squeeze their glutes, stretch and take a short walk until they feel “there” again.
Well, this is another one of those blogs that introduce a concept that will improve your health and well-being, but I can’t really tell you to take 50 steps every hour or ride a bike, and now you are outflowing.
If one is fixed in a position, and not just physically, but mentally and spiritually as well, inflowing, inflowing, inflowing, one must move and outflow. One can talk to others, or walk, or notice the neighbor’s new trees… anything that is motion, back and forth, in and out….
This is one of those topics that would be easier to talk about and work with you to see how you can regain fluidity and motion back to your daily life.
