Sitting till a stage of addiction / Prophylactic self-isolation series. Day 302nd.

Prologue

Sitting has become a rod of modern civilization as people forgot their true dance traditions to keep the body active and healthy. We catch hold of sitting activities like education, leisure in front of TV and car driving. For what cost?

Who are really poor, Bangladeshi or one from the Western society?

Light talk which has provoked deep discussion

Once we were talking about newly bought clothes and suddenly the talk turned around to the “poor people who produce these clothes at Bangladesh at a minimal cost”. My talker was sure, people in Bangladesh are poor and exploited by financial magnates and foreign investors. All their problems, according to my talker, were originated from the fact that they are not educated.

As not to be deep in the topics where we both have really no clue how the things are truly going, I switched the topics and replied: “Who knows, maybe people in Bangladesh are happier then us, especially because they are not educated. In fact that means they do not stuff their heads with tons of “critically important information” and they do not sit for hours at the desk.

As a highly educated person, I could personally confirm, education means the progress for the brain and degradation for the opposite side – backside.

Unnaturally prolonged sitting as a cause of infertility

As the modern Western society is getting highly infertile – here is one of the silent reason for it. Pelvis – the lower part of the trunk of the human body – primarily contains reproductive organs and the rectum. If it is not properly used and forgotten (sitting for hours on a backside) – do not be surprised to have difficulties with reproduction (valid both for males and females).

More so, those women who carry out an active lifestyle not sitting for hours at one place usually have no difficulties with giving childbirth, because constipation increases intraabdominal pressure in pregnancy, in other words, chronic constipation causes such much pain and blocks the ways out (1).

Here is the YouTube video by PhD student from India who explains sitting – the silent addiction – in details.

The effect sitting has on our bodies: how prolonged sitting can be seen as the, “smoking generation.”

A regular session typically lasts about 3 – 3 ½ hours. Afternoon sessions offer a 10 min intermission to get up, stretch, and grab a bite to eat. The Evening sessions offer a 10 min intermission and a 5 min break (from bgbingo.org)

The Bélé | Folk Dances of Trinidad & Tobago

Bélé (Belle Aire) Folk dance of Trinidad and Tobago. The dance we now know as the bélé, known to the French then as the Bel Air, was performed by women during social events in the planters’ great houses. The slaves who worked in or around these houses quickly copied the style and dress, and later added the African Congo influence to reflect strong Congo overtones. The bélé strongly reflects influences from African fertility dances. The term bélé also refers to a kind of drum found on Dominica, Martinique and St Lucia. The rhythmic quality of the bélé drums add spicy and yet subtle sensuality to the movements. There are more than 14 types of bélé dances including the Grand bélé and Congo bélé, with each performed to its own rhythms and chants (text from the corresponding video)
