Word of the week: proprioceptors

Do you have good proprioception?


Balance, proprioception and alignment


This is the word that came up today from Dictionary.com.  And I got quite excited!

I knew this word from my recent Nia fitness Green Belt training.  In Nia we talk about ‘listening’ to the body.  And it’s the proprioceptors – within the sensory nerve endings – that help to give us information about the position of our joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments and how they’re feeling.

Indeed, with the help of our unconscious proprioceptors, it’s the conscious movement of the 52 moves of Nia fitness that help us to maintain awareness of the whole body as we move with flexibility, agility, mobility, stability and strength.

So, it’s yay! for Dictionary.com.  And definitely yay! for Nia 🙂

Here’s a lovely quote about proprioception. I was talking of proprioception —your awareness of where you are in relation to everything else around you: Jennifer Fallon, The Palace of Impossible Dreams, 2008

How are your proprioceptors today?

Brexit is Dead

I will re-post this daily, & as Arron Banks says, "public opinion is like concrete, once it sets you can't shift it".

Please feel free to share the same message & see how much concrete we can produce :).

Brexit means less sovereignty.

▪️A weak pound will allow foreign investors to pick off UK assets.

▪️WTO tariffs will make UK exports uncompetitive.

▪️Foreign corporations able to sue the UK Government.

▪️UK passport will have less power due to diminished freedom of movement.

Everyone needs constantly reminding that after 9 years of a Tory Government:

Child poverty + 50%
Food-bank use + 1,000%
Homelessness + 170%
NHS waiting list + 70%
Police numbers - 20%
Crime + 30%
Local gov funding - 50%
Public sector pay - 15%

Never forget how cruel they are.
