It’s weird suffering a fluke injury. Sometimes, they just happen. You sleep a little funky. Currently, I have a seriously achey, pretty tight lower back. Yoga has been the focus. I reconverted to the standing desk. I am remembering to wear better shoes. This painful reminder of good habits should serve me well moving forward.
My back is spasming because I have spent too much time sitting at my desk with garbage posture. I am the one to blame for this. While it is a fluke - it was also likely preventable.
The inevitable injury, whether mind or body, serves as a refresher course on preparation. Good behavior, solid decision making and strong awareness go a long way in averting pain. My years of climbing have taught me to trust that the experiences of my body relate effectively to the processes of my mind.
