After reading this book, I put my bed on the floor. I took one of my couches out of my living room and replaced it with a bunch of floor pillows. I started working on the floor at work. I started squatting randomly throughout my day, and hanging from my pull-up bar a few minutes a day. After a week, my lower back pain disappeared. I am a bit sad that I didn't know this just 5 years ago as I started having back pain after giving birth to my kids.. but it's better late than never! At 36, I feel sooo much better than I did in my 20s. I've combined more movement throughout my day with also better sleep, nutrition, and meditation, and my quality life has exponentially improved. I also make sure to get out in nature each day and that makes such a difference in mood.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I am much more mindful of how I move, and just how I go through life in general. I'm truly convinced.
So you’ll get plenty on body alignment postures (maybe the most salient part I thought), nose breathing, good and playful movement, meditation, home arrangement, yoga-lite, decompression of joints (using the bands he also sells separately...ya)..and naturally a nod to Wim Hof (de riguer in today’s wellnesssphere). And that sort of stuff. Aummm.
There’s nothing particularly wrong with anything here, it’s just I personally didn’t really need to buy this book (I was expecting a more coherent fitness regimen for my PT clients, alas not really)...there’s nothing really original on offer. (Well. OK...I hadn’t heard of Salt Lamps before, so there, something new.)
If you have not studied many mind-body live well principles before, or want just enjoy a good review of, I guess Aaron’s book is a good a place to go.
Top international reviews
The book is filled with tons and tons of useful information and practices to better the mind and body--something we and common modern living has corrupted. The author attempts to encourage and guide you to return to simple basics which benefit our bodies and minds greatly and can even undo the damage we have done to ourselves through modern "imprinting".
While the book does have a wealth of information and instruction, I do feel that some chapters were overflowing with research, studies, opinions, etc, when they could have been expanded or simplified. The author even mentions multiple times that--to the effect off--the previous statement was a mouthful, and the like. For a beginner who has read few or nil similar books on biohacking, body and mind improvements, etc, it can be overwhelming. You really need to take the time to read each chapter thoroughly and ensure you have taken all the information in before proceeding.
My recommendation therefore is to read the book focusing on only the information, and taking note of what pages contain the exercises and such. Then, once finished, go back through those pages to learn the exercises.
I thoroughly enjoy and appreciate how the author does not just take credit whenever possible for the valuable information in the book. The author is constantly crediting and referring to other authors and experts, and their advices.
This is definitely a book to have along side your other better health and biohacking books. The exercises in this book: do them, do them, do them. They will help. I regret not a day since I have started sleeping and sitting more on the floor, and daily hanging. The exercises and tips have benefited my body, especially my back, abundantly.
A must read.
