Living Shouldn’t Hurt with Aaron Alexander

Our physical body and our mental understanding work in cohesion with one another. If theres negativity and discomfort in the mind, it reveals up physically in the body. If we have pain in the body, it impacts our thoughts, perception, and happiness levels.

Highlighting a regular sleep pattern, and prioritizing time spent in nature are 2 of the finest things you can do for your psychological health. We are under the impression that we need to work tough and earn time to play. Aaron would make the argument that when we make time for and prioritize play, we work much better.

Our bodies are under building and construction 100% of the time. The way we sit, stand, walk, rest, and move daily, sends neurological signals to our brain that determine our viewed state of security and health. With some awareness, we have the capability to engage with our bodies on a 2nd to 2nd basis in such a way that can promote a more powerful standard of health and joy. Without our health, what are we left with?

On the program this week, we are signed up with by Aaron Alexander. Aaron is a manual therapist and motion coach, as well as an author (The Align Method), and host of the Align Podcast. Aarons message is clear. Physical fitness is not what you do– its who you are.

For a lot of us, we might be repeating the action day in and day out thats triggering the pain. Postural patterns are the root cause for most of the pains and pains that show up regularly in our bodies. We spend the majority of our time in postures that go directly against our native disposition and physiological patterns.

What can we do? Aaron stresses the importance of establishing your work and living environment in such a way that makes it easy and accessible for you to get a complete series of motion. Get some floor cushions or a comfy carpet so you can rest on the floor, put a pull up bar in the door frame to hang from (hanging is one of the very best things you can do to return your body to its natural positioning), mix in a standing desk to your work regular every as soon as in a while, go on a walk. But eventually, just know. Focus on how your body is feeling at every minute throughout the day. Identify the postural patterns that are triggering you discomfort and pain, and strive to discover positions and varieties of movement that make your body feel excellent.

Going to the fitness center? Going for a run? For many of us, fitness is something that we do.

The body is filled with levers we can pull on to change our state, but numerous of us are blind to what these levers even are. Aaron does a fantastic job in this episode of bringing some of these levers to the surface area and giving us a playbook to be more in tune with our body.

The main differentiator in between us and one of the healthiest populations in the world is not in the method we work out, but in the way we rest. Aaron raises a study that examined a tribe in Tanzania. Like us, they remained in “resting positions” for about 9-10 hours each day on average. However their resting positions look a lot different than ours. They squat, kneel, sit cross legged on the floor, and invest that resting time in positions that are favorable to their anatomy. The body wishes to feel excellent, that is its natural state, however we hinder our bodys capability to feel great by deserting these series of movement that are naturally great for us.
