Ιδού ένα δείγμα γραφής: "We really should look on the bright side though; the old model of extended chair sitting has served back surgeons very well. We spend approximately $90 billion annually on the diagnosis and management of low back pain. Before we start making any rash decisions around enriching modern work environments with movement opportunities to heal the spines of employed people, let's be respectful and take a moment of silence for the spine docs out there who might miss a yacht payment. All right, moment taken, let's heal some backs!" (Μπράβο μαλάκα, οι χειρουργοί σου φταίνε που πονάει η μέση σου. Υποψιάζομαι ότι σου φταίνει κι οι δικηγόροι διαζυγίων που τα έχεις κάνει σκατά στο γάμο σου) Σίγουρα δε βοηθάει που επαναλάμβανε κάθε 5 σελίδες (και κάθε 30 λεπτά στο audiobook) "Align yourself!". Χμμμ... Νομίζω πως τελικά τον προτιμώ ως γυμναστή. Άντε να πάω να τεντωθώ, να τσιμπήσω και κάνα βιολογικό quinoa μπας και γίνω άνθρωπος.

    Wow. This was an amazing collection of pseudoscience, correlation as causation, new-age mumbo-jumbo, etc. I think there were actually some good tidbits in here, which I managed to glean as I turned the pages as fast as I possibly could. I occasionally slowed down out of disbelief, as in "did he actually make that claim??" Wow.

Your facial expressions are like emotional conductors and your ability to play your own orchestra of sensation is associated to your facial mobility. The muscles of your feet should be able to relax and find their own natural support. Your footwear should be wide toed, flat and flexible. Clothing should allow full range of motion while squatting and should be made of organic materials whenever possible. Switch hands regularly while working to avoid wrist problems from too much repetitive use with one hand. Adjust the driver’s seat in your car and raise your mirrors to avoid added stress on your neck and back while driving. Drink water first upon waking each morning. Be like the Sphinx in form to stretch out muscles and breathe through your nose. Forearm plank for 33 seconds.

    I found this a really useful resource, and I anticipate that I’ll go back to it regularly over time. For me it fills in the gaps left by various exercise programs & nutrition guides so as to help the reader understand how to optimise their body, and thereby state of mind on a everyday basis. All of the information is presented in an easy to read, conversational style & there lots of interesting references to research.

Each chapter is scattered with exercises/practices a few of which I’ve found really helpful in addressing some ongoing shoulder pain I’ve been having. Chapter 15 about eyesight & the exercises was especially interesting, I’ll definitely be building them into my daily routine. In criticism I’d say that there’s a little bit of repetition, and the jokey style of the writing was off putting a couple of times. I wish he’d gone into a little more detail on some points, although he was clearly trying to get a lot into one book already. Some of the exercises require a band the author has devised, I was enthusiastic to get one but it seems like it’s out of stock everywhere at the moment. It’d be great to have it bundled with the book. I’m pretty sure I’ll be buying this as a gift for friends & relatives. Everyone stands to get something out of it.

    An awesome read for anyone seeking to optimize/improve their movement and life. I am a huge fan of Aaron’s philosophy that there is no separation between everyday life and our health practice. Rather than thinking of optimization as cramming 45 minutes of high-intensity activity three times a week, extend your practice to 24/7. The advice in this book, including floor sitting, nose breathing, hip hinging, and hanging, is changing my life for the better. Highly recommend!!

    Not a book you read quickly. The underlying premise is get off your butt and start looking after your body and mind. You read a little and try to determine if this activity is something you really should consider adopting and why you should be doing it. Aaron backs up most of the contents with published research done previously.

    Insightful read shedding great light on the things we normally overlook. Worth coming back to for refreshers but some takeaways: - modern footwear now “coddling” our feet and likely leading to foot problems. Practice being bare foot, letting foot spread out and letting the many nerves feel the earth around - establish morning ritual: meditate, sun exposure, cold exposure, water with lemon and salt, dance and move - 30min of ground work a day. Practice 90/90. Stretch top of the feet. Cobra. - eve Insightful read shedding great light on the things we normally overlook.

Box breathing - be mindful of how much I internally rotate. To text. Computer. Drive. Stretch heart out and up - look at ceilings when you walk into rooms - use a water bottle behind back while driving to promote better posture

I have and will continue practice hanging daily to lengthen the spine, and for brachaiting the shoulder girdle for shoulder mobility to prevent back and shoulder issues so many suffer from. I also enjoyed Aaron's discussion on floor culture and why it's necessary for strong bones, tendons and stability -and how much stronger people that live in countries where floor culture is the norm stay in their old age. Recommend this book for anyone open minded and curious about mobility and general health.

    I tend to find the author to be a bit too woo woo and fixated on the same things. In fact, I gave up on his podcast. I say that to paint a picture of me as an almost fan (I did listen to the podcast for a while) but not a fanboy so you can hopefully be sure I am not just reviewing this well to prop up an idol. This book covers some important ground and really hammers in his points. Many of the chapters are things I am not interested in. In fact, I probably didn't care for half the book or more.

    Loved it! Basically sums up how to be a healthier person by improving your movement, breathing, and sleep patterns plus many more little tricks to optimize your wellbeing. To sum it up: sit on the floor for at least 10 minutes a day, hang from something daily to decompress your shoulders, take care of your sleep and expose your eyes and skin to the sun in the morning to level up your circadian rhythm, breathe through the nose and use the diaphragm, dance more, sing more, and enjoy life.

    Aaron alexander made an effort to write this book. It is not really an extraordinary writing. He presented un this book several subjects including the beneficial of movement throughout the day including the 5 daily movements (walking, hangin...) environment(clothing, home, office...) And sens (meditation, music..) and other tips for well-being and living well. You better follow him on Instagram or YouTube and watch his video movement tutorials.

    I can't say enough great things about this book. I have been applying lots of these principles for months now and really notice a difference. I even set up a floor desk for my homeschooled kids and myself. This is a keeper and one I will be referring to over and over and using to guide my kids towards better physical and environmental alignment. I can't say enough great things about this book.

    I really enjoyed reading this book! Lots of great advice and very well-written. Alexander is very honest and factual. I especially enjoyed the section on shoes and heels, since I do have foot problems. I am encouraged to examine my posture, exercise habits and daily living habits to improve my health. I received a complimentary copy of this book and I'm so glad I did! Thank you! I really enjoyed reading this book! Lots of great advice and very well-written. Alexander is very honest and factual.

    Simple but effective steps for a healthier life. I am now more thoughtful, aware, and playful about posture and movement. I dance, hang from tree branches, and watch TV sitting the floor. If only I could cut down the mouth breathing....

    Good information and well laid out and explained. Not a lot of new info for me with the training I’ve already had but I would recommend to friends who haven’t had any and need a good place to start.

    Disappointing. I wanted a routine I could follow and just hanging around or sitting on the floor is something I already do. Maybe at 77 I'm already "age proof" as best I am able. Disappointing.

    I'm dropping my original 4 stars due entirely to the back half of the book. There's a lot to like about the first chunk related to biomechanics. It's definitely with it. But the latter half starts talking about the proper fibers in your clothes, and why you should use salt lamps, and all this other woo nonsense. And don't get me started about the morning routine malarkey - wake up with the sun and meditate while writing in your gratitude journal then drink salted lemon water before meditating agai I'm dropping my original 4 stars due entirely to the back half of the book.
