Movement is life. It is present in every second of every day. Our heart beats, we breathe... We are never completely still.
In my journey of dealing with a whiplash injury, I have found the importance of controlled movement. Of a body that knows how it is to be both strong and flexible in different positions. A nervous system that is awake, not in full combat mode if something happens, but a functional body that is prepared and can handle if I trip and fall. Teach your body how to fall, how to move on the ground, in twisted positions reaching around yourself towards the floor or something to hold on to.. Kids do this all the time in their playtime, imagine if we had held on to the that type of variational movements in our everyday life, how many injuries could we have avoided? Lets start exploring what our bodies are capable of!
My morning routine is a small movement session, that involves a few stretching exercises and some freeing-the-whole-body-movements. I want to wake my body up, let it work out any settled stiffness after being asleep during the night. This is my morning coffee 😉 I want to feel the flow, easiness and alertness in my body.
