Movement

One of my favorite things about my new lifestyle is having the freedom to move however and whenever I want.

I've always had a kind of claustrophobia - not of small and enclosed spaces, but of restricted movement, like someone holding down my arms or legs. In retrospect I wonder if this was triggered in a subtle way by being expected to be in an office for the majority of the day. Maybe I'm just making things up.

Now, at least a couple of times a day, I'll roll out my back and shoulders, hip flexors and glutes. I'll do some light stretching as well, or go for a walk around the block.

I try not to sit too much of the day, and instead opt for a lunge position that Tyler suggested when my hip flexors were especially tight last week: Lunge position, back knee on a folded up yoga mat, in front of a desk or table. Total game-changer!
