When was the last time you sat on the floor?
As babies, we spend most of our time on the floor.
Our bodies are designed to go through all these wonderfully weird movements daily: Squatting, kneeling, rolling over, lying on our back.
Then, at about six or seven years of age, we sit in an office chair (or a miniature one) and don’t get out of it again until we get into our wheelchair to die.
When was the last time your hamstrings touched your bum?
Our body is designed to squat from the day we’re born until the day before the day we die.
Isn’t it a shame that we lose that most basic function of these wonderful machines we call home?
Fortunately, we can get it back anytime we want to use it again (although it does take a while to grease the ol’ joints again).
Touch your toes. Hold on to those big juicy ones if you can reach them.
Squat as low as you can go.
Plonk that ass on the grass.
And get up again.
Do that every day, and you’ll be roly-polying with the toddlers at any age.
