Move Your Square

Move your square.   What square?  Your torso.  The portion of your body between your shoulders and hips.  When moving your square its a good idea   to maintain posture.  Think of stature.   Stand tall and keep your head balanced.  Your ears should be over your shoulders (your head should not be in front or behind the rest of your body), shoulders over hips, hips over knees, and knees over ankles (they all should be in alignment).  By maintaining posture you are in a better position to move out of harms way.   It is everyone’s responsibility to do just that.  This applies to both your physical and spiritual square.   It also applies to your health care.   Keep your balance, maintain your posture, and find whats makes most sense for you when making decisions about how to take care of yourself.  By focusing on how and when you move your square when you are well you will be more prepared to do so when you are sick.   Learning to move your square can reduce tension, improve decision making, and help you enjoy life today.   Learn more about moving your square by using the Systema Health link on piedmontpmr.com.

Breathing: Its Personal

All of us breath, right?  Well not exactly.   Most of us actually don’t breath when we need to the most.   If we get tense, in a pickle, or just move we frequently hold our breath.   Pay attention the next time you sit down or upon standing from sitting.   Did you hold your breath?  When we stop breathing the body automatically shunts blood to the brain.   That means there is less oxygen available to the rest of your body.   Anything oxygen deprived gets tense and does not preform as well as it might have if oxygen was available.   Fortunately the solution is simple.   Breath. In through the nose and out through the mouth.  Breath in with the focus of getting oxygen into the brain and reduce tension and breath out through the mouth in an effort to start your body moving.   By increasing awareness of how often and under what circumstances you stop breathing you can help yourself enjoy life today.  Learn more about breathing and other self help techniques by using the Education tab on piedmontpmr.com.

Reduce Total Load For Fibromyalgia

Improved quality of life for fibromyalgia is possible.  One of the tools we use to do that is to reduce total load, the total number of things that do not get you well.  Nerve and ligament damage, arthritis, inflammation, immune disease, clotting disorders, tension, environmental illness; the list is long.   Anything that contributes to total load takes away from healing.   Take a serious look at your life and decide to reduce total load.   Learn more about Fibromyalgia at piedmontpmr.com.
