Took me a few minutes to get off the floor again myself… not a hip or back problem… just as they say ROTFLMAO…
Seriously, how about a bit of Tai Chi… more about flow than static poses… I’ve never tried it but used to find watching people that do was quite soothing in itself… many forms of that as well.
A friend from Elkford was spending a lot of time hobbling around there not getting much done… I talked him into getting a hip replacement… and he did once he knew me well enough to care for his home… he had to travel to Vancouver, but only on the condition that he knew he could not return home until June at least.
They kept changing his dates and tried to send him home from where he was convalescing… but he kept saying he could not and that they had agreed… I had by that time started to dig his home out after a full winter of snow… and a heavy load… had to send his doctor a few photos to show he was not kidding… he heats by wood fire… and his wood supply was buried deep… having not been used or dug out… the snowbanks were twice the height of my Jimmy which made it over 3m… and the trailer is elevated… sent a before and after snow image that showed snow up to the doors… but he lives in the basement at that time and it was only just starting to show… they remembered the agreement but for his part accepted a lesser room… since he was mostly recovered… by that time…just some walking to do and he didn’t need help with that.part since Vancouver was sunny and dry at the time… He got home a bit before Jun 1 that year and I had excavated his main living area… but there was still snow on the ground in areas two weeks after that… almost 4700 ft ASL… ha. Now he will hike up most of the mountains with me… so hang in there… he has also built most of a log cabin at a speed that surprises even him… so mobility was worth it… and we don’t use big stuff to move his materials… I taught him some old tech ways but still workable… he thought he needed to hire a crane… he did it by himself with my old tech… two ropes and a couple of poles… this thing is raised up and made of logs he hewed by hand… Finnish style (rural and very old fashioned) he thought 5 years and it’s just ending the 2 and the raw structure is up almost 3 years ahead… Have fun
