The flame I display today is numb. You will only find it if you lower your head deep into the hole beneath me. It's there, I know it. It is soft, a murky flicker and barely grasping to the wick. Colors are dim, bland, unimpressive. My body, cold, heavy and slowly crumbling.
So many people have jobs plopped on a desk chair behind computer screen, or these days...multiple computer screens. I know first hand how long a human body can sit in a chair without barely moving for hours at a time. Working on a computer for hours on end is so easy to do because we often get stuck in the massive world called "the internet". There is always something to do online, whether its send an email, work on a project, browse pictures and comments on social media, playing games, etc. It's an entire world at our fingertips and we barely have to move a muscle to participate. If you sit there long enough, most of the time your mind becomes completely complacent on what you're physical body is (or, is not doing), hence, horrible posture and the ultimate potential for pain and muscle degeneration.
The parts of the body that suffer the most from sitting at a desk for long hours are hamstrings, low back, shoulders and chest. That is a large part of our anatomy, and an even bigger part of our life.
Hello, I'm Julie.
One of the many things yoga taught me was empowerment...and I hope to share that with you here.
Bring wisdom, nourishment and a deeper connection to all aspects of your life.
