How Do You Get Out Of Bed?

Studio Pilates in Highett - Pilates Plus Lifestyle Studio

We all do this simple thing every day…get out of bed and some days it’s easier than others.

So how do you get out of bed?

Do you bound out of bed, full of energy and able to stand up without assistance or any aches and pains? Or is getting out of bed the first “obstacle” you’ll face in the day?After speaking to hundreds of people about their physical fitness and ability, I know that getting out of bed is a real issue for a lot of people.

Nobody wants to start the day experiencing aches and pains…just from getting out of bed!

If you can relate to this daily issue, then don’t despair…there is a way that you can be bounding out of bed each day.

Here is a list of issues that could be contributing to your lack of movement ability in the morning and how you can rectify the issue.

  • Being overweight – This one is obvious, but it may not be for the reason that you think. Having extra abdominal fat has a big effect on your core strength and ability to use your abdominals in the correct way, which leads to an inability to move the spine in the correct way…it kind of makes your torso rigid and not easy to move around. Just imagine that you have a wooden plank stuck to your back, it would make it really hard to bend your body. This is what happens if you have excess baggage in the belly area.

Solution 1: Lose weight!

  • Sleeping posture – Did you know that Joseph Pilates actually invented a bed? He had very firm views on what position you should sleep in and the effect it had on your body. Being out of alignment while you sleep is just the same as being out of alignment when you are awake. It creates imbalances in your body that lead to aches and pains, tight muscles and stiff joints.

Solution 2: Correct postural issues!

  • Not stretching – So many people would feel so much better if they just stretched every day!!! It takes just 10-15 minutes of your time at night, just before you go to bed and it will also help with the quality of sleep that you get. If you have a tight, stiff and sore body, then doing this is a game changer!

Solution 3: Learn how to stretch correctly…then do it!

  • Not drinking enough water – Dehydration has a direct effect on your muscles and joints. If you get cramps in your legs and feet overnight, you may need to start monitoring your water intake and increase if necessary. And no, tea and coffee don’t count as water intake!

Solution 4: Drink water!

  • Not exercising – Moving your body is the most natural way you can get to lubricate your joints and get your muscles to warm up and elongate. Of course, choosing the right type of exercise to do this is crucial…Pilates of course! Pilates is more than just exercises to get your “core strong”. It’s a system of movements that is designed to optimise your body’s capability from the inside out, that’s why it makes your body feel good.

Solution 5: Do Pilates!!
