Lifting Stuff

Lifting Stuff

It’s great to have fun doing stuff, like gardening and paddle boarding and biking and hiking and playing with your kids or grandkids.

But then comes the moment…. when you have to LIFT something in order to do those things.   Lift your kids into a shopping buggy.  Lift that bale of peat moss for the garden.  Lift the canoe onto the car.  Carry mining core samples… (we have a geologist visiting us right now, and she made that suggestion.)

Is THAT “lifting” part of the action something that feels easy and strong for you?  Or does it cause you concern… and maybe even prevent you from doing some things you would otherwise choose to do???

Lifting stuff can feel comfortable – and easy.  In this video, you get to join me as I am learning how to lift my paddle board (something new I have been figuring out).  I will let you in on what I am paying attention to, in order to make it feel reasonable – and work.

If you would like some help learning how to lift stuff more easily and comfortably – or doing whatever else would make you feel more able to do what you want to do – give me a shout!

You’ve got stuff you want to be able to do, with freedom and ease and comfort.  Let’s make that happen!

Happy exploring 🙂
