I, you, we all live in the age of information technology. The cyber world dominates every aspect of our lives. Flesh-to-metal communication is replacing flesh-to-flesh communication in all shapes and sizes. Today, our best friends are no longer the people we went to school with, but the mesmerising digital cyber dances of lights, clicks and images on our phones, pads, laptops and PCs. Virtual reality entertains us. However, the integrity of our bodies suffers.

Demanding body integrity in the cyber world

The eyes, head, neck, spine and back are unconsciously forced to leave their natural position by these high-dollar cyber-attractions. This causes the management of our body centre to show geometric dysfunctions. As always, however, we can do something about it. For although the new technologies have negative influences on our bodies, we can learn to mitigate the cyber-influences.

About the technique. I remember a You Tube interview with Bruce Lee. The interviewer asked him what the secret of his technique was. Bruce answered warmly: “I make the unnatural natural, and the natural unnatural.”

Making the unnatural natural

That is exactly what we have to do. Make the natural unnatural and the unnatural natural. We need to readjust our bodies in interaction with the cyber world. We have to learn to deal physically with these unnatural “high-dollar” cyber attractions in such a way that we can maintain the integrity of our bodies.

We have to change what we perceive as natural: Yes, that is slouching in front of the PC in front of the chair, into what we perceive as unnatural: Sitting from the pelvis in an upright posture. It’s that simple! All we need is a pinch of awareness and the will to implement it 😉

“He who feels it knows it!”

By the way, the upright sitting position is another topic still to be discussed, but that’s for another time. Now and here, as promised …

Tip 3 – Movement & Breathing
Lie on the floor with a small ball under your chest (picture 1). Inhale slowly and lift your head and chest (picture 2). Stay in this position, exhale slowly, lift your pelvis (picture 3). Inhale and bring your pelvis back to the floor (picture 4). Exhale and come back to the starting position (picture 5). Inhale and exhale naturally so that the air goes in and out through the nose continuously. Push your elbows back and lift your chin towards your chest (picture 6). Repeat this sequence 5 times.

Last but not least, get up, walk around and enjoy this new feeling of lightness around your head. Yes, it’s YOUR neck! Free from cyber neck tension.
