Can you see yourself here in any of these pictures? A lot of people I’ve adjusted lately are having trouble adapting to their new home office arrangements. Ergonomics play a big part. 

Quotes
Here are some quotes to think about and give some historical perspective. Lao Tzu lived in 6th century BC and was an ancient Chinese philosopher and writer. He is the reputed author of the Tao Te Ching and the founder of philosophical Taoism.

With so many working from home, I see more and more people with their head going forward into the computer screen. Forward Head Posture by Jonathan FitzGordon is a collection of blog posts that explains it so well.  
“You become what you think about all day long.”  Wayne Dyer
“We plan, God laughs”  Yiddish proverb

These two quotes at first seem to be at odds with each other. On one hand you can create what you think about and on the other hand, the universe may have other plans for you. 2020 has come with such a variety of unexpected challenges, throwing everything out of balance or so it may seem. We must however, change and adapt when we are forced to and see the opportunity for our own inner growth in doing so.

Here are some of the things I have been finding helpful in navigating these difficult times. The path and the journey are all about this moment and then this moment and so on and so on…

Take breaks often
1. Breathe Regularly – take 5 minutes to focus on your breathing. Sit up straight, close your eyes, slowly inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth.  Sort of like a cigarette break without the side effects, only the benefits. 
2. Be Present – Slow down – Enjoy the air around you, appreciate the little things and focus on your senses. 
3. Move – All forms of exercise can ease anxiety. Go for a quick walk around the block or skip the elevator and take the stairs.

July 2020

Hello dear ones,  

With so many more people working from home these days, I wanted to share with you some things that may be helpful to on-going home self – care. Many people who reached out to me during the quarantine were out of the city and wanted to know what they could do at home.  Of course, this is obviously not a substitute for medical attention.  These are merely home remedies to try if you can’t get an adjustment or to see a health care provider soon enough.

Yours truly for better health,
Lisa Kirsch, D.C. 

Topping the list – working at a desk from home.  People were not having much trouble with their home workouts causing injury as much as extended hours sitting in an ergonomically incorrect position. Chantha Thach, a personal trainer in TriBeCa and professional body builder was (and is) giving online workouts. I asked Chantha if she could also demonstrate stretches to counter the problem of sitting too long.  These stretches are designed to help elongate the muscles that are affected by sitting at a computer.  (These stretches are to be done bilaterally where only one side is pictured) 
“People are fed by the food industry, which pays no attention to health, and are
treated by the health industry, which pays no attention to food.”
― Wendell Berry

Cost Of Being A Woman: Heavy Bag

Posted in Uncategorized at May 7th, 2018. Comments Off on Elle Magazine – Cost Of Being A Woman: Heavy Bag.

Happy 2018!

Wishing you all love, peace, joy and health for the coming year!

I realized when I wake up in morning the first thing I do is remember who I am, where I am and what I have to do that day.  I was waking up and putting it all on like a big coat.  Then I would get myself out of bed and face the day.   So this year I decided to wake up and remember to be present all day long!  Ha…the greatest challenge ever.  Be Here Now by Ram Dass right?   That is and was one of my all time favorite books. Now I just found out there is a website: https://beherenownetwork.com/podcasts/

So that is my New Year’s resolution….wake up, remember to be present!

Sounds easy.  This reminds me of when one of my patients told me her son said to her, “Mom, just make rice.”  She said, “Just ‘make’ rice?!  Do you know how many ways I can screw up rice?!”

There are so many ways to not be present!  There is only one way to be present!

With love,

Lisa
