If not now, when?

calendar-310944_1280Last week I was sitting around in a boardroom with 20 people and when I announced that I was on a mission to unlock people’s shoulders, almost everyone there reacted in some way.  Whether it was a knowing nod, or a murmur of “That sounds good”, “I need that!” or sitting up straighter and rolling the shoulders back, it struck a chord with everyone.

Tightness in the neck and shoulders is rife in our society as we spend more time hunched over our computers and phones. It’s an epidemic.

Most of us hold tension there and are in discomfort to the point where it impacts the quality of our lives significantly.

And what do we do about it?

Usually nothing.  Maybe complain, get a back rub or swallow a painkiller.

And if I were to tell you there is a simple, effective way to release that tension and relieve the pain (which there is), what do you do then?

In my experience, nothing.  

Except maybe complain some more, suffer some more and up the painkiller dose.

I’m amazed by the fact that so many people chose to suffer rather than feel comfortable in their body.

Just like those 20 people, all of whom agreed they were suffering discomfort to a greater or lesser degree,  and none of whom were willing to put themselves first, you’ll go on to the next task and the next task and be too busy to take time for self-care.

If you don’t take some time for yourself now, your body will break down and later you’ll be forced to stop what you are doing.

The body is a marvellous machine.  Most people take better care of their car than they do of the vehicle carrying them around all day, every day.

Release tension; feel lightness and ease in your body that you’d forgotten was even possible and the work will be a lot easier.

See for yourself, make an appointment with me now.

  1. Thanks for sharing this Christine! I was actually just talking about this with someone less yesterday! We are so lazy that we prefer to complain that help ourselves. It’s been some time now that I do 15 minutes of yoga every morning of the week and no back pain anymore! If I stop the pain comes back. It’s so simple: 15 min a day, but people are so lazy :(
    Let’s make the change!

    • You’re right Laure – it’s a simple change and sometimes it’s easier to complain than to do something. 15 minutes is all it takes.
