Do you ever feel like you haven’t time to take care of yourself?! That it’s one more thing for the to-do list?
Life is full. We navigate, manage and juggle. Our phones and laptops side by side. Almost always on. We’re used to being in overdrive–often going a million miles an hour until our heads hit the pillow.
We value sleep and fitness but don’t always get enough. Taking 90 minutes for a restorative yoga class feels amazingly life affirming, but we go through that checklist of what won't get done if we do it...
Audra, the radiant woman in the above photo is the owner of an acupuncture and skincare business, a passionate parent of a busy 7 year old, and the keeper of the family household while her husband is in school.
She found that just a few moments a day on the Incliner helps give her a sense of calm and balance. Her daughter said it felt good, and was relaxing.
“Using the Incliner has helped relieve my lower back and hip pain. The angle is slight enough to prevent a massive blood rush to the head, but steep enough to allow gravity to realign the spine. And really comfortable too! Great for meditating and relaxing.”
There’s a deep human need for rest and renewal.
We live in an "age of overwhelm" now more than ever and it seems to show no signs of abating. Briged Schulte, in her book Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has the Time is well worth a read. Terry Gross interviews her here on Fresh Air NPR Author Interview.
My sister Sarah sent me this email yesterday and it about says it all:
“Today I wore heels (I work on a concrete floor) and I sometimes in addition to my feet, have sore, stiff knees. Even though my knees have been bothering me, I still wore heels. (Too much Queer Eye.) It was fun until 1:00 and then walking to the bus after work was horrible. I walked so slowly. I couldn’t wait to get home, take my shoes off and lay on the incliner, to turn myself upside down. Its like your vitality is a sock that falls down each time you walk. Of course we get shorter in the course of a day! Wellness slumps and bunches at the bottom of you like a fallen sock. Reclining on the incliner, tips it back in. Pours you right. Pulls you back up. The blood, the lymph, the body fluids, your organs. The weight of your body, the weight of gravity all work together to restore ease.”
We, at InclineRx want to make taking care of yourself feel easier.
