In pursuit of balance: Episode 1

In honor of this post by Mris, I spent my lunch hour attending a flexibility and stability workshop that was being offered here at work, rather than snarfing my lunch and dashing back to my desk to work on online Help. And I have to say, I feel fantastic, and I learned some good new stretches. My balance could use some work though. (Standing on one foot with your eyes closed for an extended period of time: more challenging than you might think.)

All of you out there who spend large portions of your day sitting at computers: don't underestimate the value of getting up and moving around a bit. Even if it's just a 15 minute walk.

I'm going to make it my goal to do a bit of stretching and balance work every day for the next couple of weeks.
