Hi tree guys and girls, hope you’re all doing awesome.
I have been in this industry for about four and a half years now after moving from the health and fitness industry (8 years).
In that time I have seen a lot of mates get injured, most of which could potentially have been avoided if we put the same amount of time and effort into maintaining what I think is the most important tool we have (our bodies and mind) as we do with our chainsaws and chippers.
So in the hopes of potentially preventing some unnecessary injuries, pain, and loss of income. I thought I would share some of the stuff I use in my day to day life from the world of health and wellbeing to make tree life as fun as it can be.
So I started this page on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/arboristfit/ where I will be sharing some stuff to hopefully make life easier and safer in the trees.
If you’re interested in it check it out, if not that’s cool too stay safe and have fun.
ps if people are interested in this stuff and have suggestions of stuff you potentially want to be covered please let me know.
pps. if this is in the wrong forum also please let me know

Thank you for sharing this. I also started getting some nasty pain when doing work lately, and I think it's time to hit the gym. I found lots of good points from a practitioner that I found online. Apparently it's much safer and easier to use an online doctor due to Covid and it works pretty much the same. These guys are following all the necessary procedures and regulations and I think they have read them on Datica health as I have seen a lot of similar services using the same style to their sites. Nevertheless, they are doing a great job.

I love the idea of blending it all together for a better and healthier work life. Do you have any articles? Or maybe want to write one for the home page? Let me know.

I love it! It's amazing the musculoskeletal disorders that arise from bodily neglect. I don't have instagram right now. Do you have any articles/youtube feed stuff we can check out?

I'm recovering from some pretty hairy stuff, so I could give my body all of the help I can find. Doc is actually sending me to physical therapy to help increase my bodies resilience to what I've got going on. All I know is what I've been doing for years, so what I learned in wrestling/mma, from being injured in the past and going to pt, and some yoga stuff. It's always good to expand horizons when it comes to health!

I look forward to seeing how this progresses. Climb high brother!
