A few weeks ago I mentioned Ryan DeBell at The Movement Fix putting together a simple set of movements/exercises to help you prepare for the day ahead. Taking nothing away from the ideas that Ryan put on the video but perhaps building on  them we can, in some ways, simplify things further. Rather than looking at a set of different movement drills we can look at the simple act of getting up and down off the floor and the different aspects of it. As it provides a rich variety of movements getting up off the floor, and back down, provides great stimulation to the brain and how it is involved in helping us move well.

It's a busy month in Edinburgh during August with The Edinburgh International Festival, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and the Book Festival going on and its been no exception in the clinic. This August we've had quite a number of the performers from the Fringe and the Tattoo along with touring cricketers.

There have been quite a number of blog posts, and here's another, about the effects of sitting for long periods on our health, the one I came across today was referencing a paper which talked about how sedentary behavior is detrimental to our cardiovascular health. The paper talks about how being more active through the day can aid our well being alongside regular exercise and discusses how simply getting up and moving around regularly through the day can help along with going for a short walk during breaks.
