Are you hanging in there?
This is something I have been exploring more and more recently in this VUCA and sedentary world. Yes, literally.
Did you know that by hanging, you let your shoulders experience their full range of motion while stretching out and decompressing your spine?
Other positives (to name a few):
🌿 Create movement variety and upper body alignment
🌿 Allow the shoulders and lats muscles to relax
🌿 Increase bone density in your wrists
🌿 Improve your grip strength and endurance
🌿 Opportunity to breathe, be present and mindful
🌿 You get to connect with your inner child!
You can do a passive hang from a bar, rings or a door frame. Or how about going out in nature and finding yourself a beautiful tree in the middle of the green? As with anything new, start small and perhaps explore hanging for a few seconds and keep increasing time each day. Once you feel ready, maybe you can even take upon the challenge of swinging yourself like a little monkey 🐒
Get away from your desk now, and hang in there ♥️ – Stay agile, stay healthy!
