Shake it off!

Shaking the body is how wild animals get rid of stress from their bodies...straight after the trigger event...which is why they don't suffer PTSD but what about humans? Here's a simple daily practice that not only shakes off what you don't want but re-energises every cell in the body (something we could all use right now), it takes just a few moments, can be done anywhere and is free!

Living the animated life

Movement is so key to good health and I'm sharing some that have really benefitted me on the recovery path from chronic pain. If there’s a thread running through all these activities, its the importance of hooking onto the ones that you really want to do, grabbing onto the coat-tails of enthusiasm (even if laced with fear and self-doubt), not forcing yourself against the grain to follow 'recommended' programs. The more movement becomes an integrated part of life, the less pain remains part of the fabric of life - it just gets shimmied out!
