Since I live in the Phoenix area, and it's March, it's a great time to be outdoors. It's in the mid-seventies most of the day, which is very comfortable. And so I've set up a physical therapy area out in the garden. This is what I have so far:
• An extra-thick yoga mat. It's underneath the towel and the pillow (which is an outdoor pillow so I can leave it outside).
• A small plastic table. I listen to audiobooks, and music on my iPad, so I put it there. Putting expensive electronics on the ground is just dumb. I doubt whether it would be harmed if Macintosh, the good little wiener dog, stepped on it, but my feet are considerably bigger!
• A foam roller, a tennis ball, and a yoga strap. Mostly I just lie around, stretch, and knead sore muscles. And a lot of times I just I sleep.
Oh yeah, and you've gotta have shade. My olive tree provides that. And it's always nice to have your best friend with you!
