Money Matters 290- Built To Move w/ Kelly & Juliet Starrett
As we prepare for retirement it is very common for people to have goals like traveling or visiting grandchildren. The bleak reality is that even though we might have done everything financially correct to prepare for the retirement stage of life , mobility and health issues can often put a damper on these important goals. How do we give ourselves the tools to physically age gracefully and to continue to enjoy a retired life when these physical roadblocks appear?
Today we visited with Kelly and Juliet Starrett to do a deep dive into their new book Built to Move. After decades spent working with pro-athletes, Olympians, and Navy Seals, mobility pioneers Kelly and Juliet Starrett began thinking about the physical well-being of the rest of us. What makes a durable human? How do we continue to feel great and function well as we age? And how do we counteract the effects of technology-dependence, sedentary living, and other modern ways of life on our body’s natural need for activity?
The answers lie in an easy-to-use formula for basic mobility maintenance: 10 tests + 10 physical practices = 10 ways to make your body work better
The book offers:
- Easy mobilization practices to increase range of motion and avoid injury
- Intuitive ways to integrate more movement into your daily life and escape sedentary habits
- No-fuss guidelines for improving nutrition and sleep
- Basic breathing practices to manage stress and pain
- Quick and simple assessments to gauge progress and what needs improvement
