Trying out my ball in the bush

Here I am trying out my Voltaren ball instead of a chair. That’s the Timbavati in the background (it’s a well-travelled ball – even went rollabout in the camp and the game guard had to chase it and catch it for me).

It takes a bit of getting used to – I’m finding my back muscles definitely need strengthening. But there are compensations. You can bounce on it for one (I tried that last night – it’s quite zen and it works your glutes, helping to prevent Office Bum). Also, when work gets too much, you can do this:

Lean back on ball

I can imagine this move could be quite therapeutic at the end of a crappy day at the office.
