This time we spoke at about movement and posture, something that we are all passionate about. Modern human spends far too much time sitting down and slouching, which has some seriously adverse consequences for us. Our posture impacts our breathing, digestion and blood circulation, just to name a few things.
It doesn't have to be this way - we are built for movement and we can regain it by getting a bit uncomfortable. For example, sitting or squatting on the floor instead of slouching in the sofa (there is no such thing as a straight back in a sofa) may be uncomfortable at first, but you will slowly build up movement in hips, ankles and knees to regain some of that mobility you are meant to have.
Spending more time walking and standing - getting a bit more uncomfortable compared to escalators, lifts and cars will also improve mobility. Then you can move on from there and take every opportunity you get to move like children do: start crawling, jumping and rolling in the woods, get some rings or bars to play around on. Movement doesn't have to mean working out or going to a yoga class, it can happen whenever and whereever you are. No excuses! Go do it!
