When I walk my loaded wheelbarrow down the hill (it’s a steep one) I’m tempted to display my Frankenstein walk, ankle fixed, foot flat, even as I move it forward for the next step. It’s intuitive. And bad. Free your ankles. Let your rear foot peel from the ground. You’ll have better contact with the ground and less risk of falling. It’s counterintuitive. Today behind your wheelbarrow or walking your dog, let the back foot peel from the ground. You’ll treat your ankles better and maybe those metaphorical ankles too, neck and wrists. Today, have fun doing it. You may thank me as I thank the Alexander Technique for this piece of progress. Have a terrific day.
