1. Taking it outdoors after a short walk, to gently wake up the joints, soft tissue and senses.
2. Sitting on a log rather than a chair, which means using more muscles to get up and down (muscles at the backs of your legs if you keep your shins vertical to the best of your ability) and to sit upright with no backrest (using your core muscles to hold you up).
3. Barefoot, to let the muscles and joints in my feet move without restrictions and the skin on my feet feel the ground, sensory nerves reporting back to my brain how good it feels (warm, dry hay and cool, damp grass).
4. Eating homegrown fruit: rhubarb, gooseberries, loganberries and blackcurrants mixed with oats, nuts and seeds - super healthy, rich and vitamins and minerals to boost your immune system and your energy levels.
5. Looking at trees and flowers and insects rather than a screen - great for looking up, using neck and eye muscles in many different ways, preventing stiff neck and eye strain.
6. Listening to bird song - great for relaxation, which will help eating slowing and digesting well
7. Breathing in, not super deeply but deeply enough to smell the morning scents, soothing my nervous system.
8. Enjoying every bite, tasting each amazing burst of flavour, keeping you anchored in your present sensory awareness and out of your busy mind for a little while, before a busy day.
=> This is my idea of a great start to the day!
Time to get some computer work done! Until my next break...
Let me know what part of your day you decide to « rewild » and how. I'd love to know.
