I’ve certainly been feeling a lot tighter in just about all of my muscles lately. My legs and back are the main culprits, but my neck is not especially happy at the moment either.
Part of it I think is the cold, and the other big factor could be that I haven’t been leaving the house as much of late either. This means less walking and more time sitting hunched over a laptop, and trying to remember to break my days up by good long sitting to stretch out my legs and also give my back a different kind of support.
More and more of my days will probably be like this over the next few months as winter gets closer and closer and brings with it the ice and snow and cold and all those other things I love so very much.
(I came to the conclusion a long time ago that snow if one of the most physically disabling things out there for me.)
I’ll probably spend more and more time cuddling a wheat bag, both to help me keep warm and to try and keep my body a bit happy with me, and I think it’s getting to the time of year now where I’m going to need to use more than one at a time.
Thankfully, I’m not the only one who uses them in my house so we have a pretty large collection of them in all different shapes and sizes, so I think I’m going to go and heat two up; one for my back and one for my legs.
My neck would probably appreciate one too if I’m being honest, but then I think I might get a bit too hot.
