Let’s Get Physical
WHERE TO START
Learn how your physiology works.
JoeTherapy: Joe posts two types of tips – muscle release techniques and stretches. Some techniques might require the use of external tools, but they can be simple items like a tennis ball or a wall or chair to prop your extremities or your whole body against.Joe Yoon
Move University: Just as their slogan says, “Learn to develop a strong, balanced body, and move without pain.”
They have an online program available through their website: moveu.com but their daily Instagram posts are extremely helpful just to start. In addition to their full online program, they host regular webinars with Q&A segments.MoveU_Official
Take Regular Inventory.
Consult your Primary Care Physician.
HOW TO START
Start with small changes.
Standing will force you to activate your abdominal core and can promote good posture, but standing for extended periods of time can be equally fatiguing. There are standing-desk solutions that can allow you to switch from sitting to standing quickly.
Establish a routine.
Don’t take my word for it. If you look at any professional you consider to be successful, you’ll find evidence they have a routine. Those that showcase what they do on Youtube may even share this tip openly. Christian Hensen, co-founder of Spitfire Audio and composer for film and TV can be seen regularly taking brisk hikes in his Vlog series.
He covers a range of health topics including how he deals with stress, which I may cover in the future. There are virtually endless videos and blogs of creatives sharing their experiences of how they found a balance that has worked for them.
