#1 Undulate! A Perfect Way To Start Your Day

Updated: Sep 2, 2021

Bits of healthful information to easily incorporate into your life...

Good Health To You!


Undulation is quick and easy form of movement to add to your day that feels good and is good for you! Estimated time 30 seconds. Really! Only 30 seconds!



Undulation is a flowing, up-and-down movement like the motion of waves…Undulation best applies to waves, but it can also describe similar movements. (vocabulary.com)



The first thing to do when you step out of bed is to undulate. And, it is totally understandable if you don’t want any witnesses ;)

The idea is to move each joint in your body through its complete range of motion. This is a wonderful thing to do for the health of your joints. Movement increases the synovial fluid in your joints which acts like an oil that helps your joints move more smoothly. Also, movement increases circulation bringing good oxygen and nutrients to your joints.

As you undulate, you will most likely hear crunches and pops in some of your joints. That is an indication that those areas need attention, need more oil, synovial flud. So throughout the day, occasionally put those specific joints through their range of motion. In time they will quiet down and you will move more smoothly.

So how exactly do you undulate?

Important: Do not make fast, abrupt movements. Doing so will stress your muscles. Undulation is slow and gentle. Do not force a joint to move farther than is comfortable. Try to Keep adding movements without discontinuing previous movements. Get your whole body moving at once.

1-Start with your fingers. Move them as if you were playing a piano.

2-Move your wrists in circles, both directions.

3-Pump your elbows as if you were doing curls.

4-Twist your arms in both directions as if you were turning a faucet on and off.

5-Roll your shoulders forward and backward then up and down like a teeter totter. Punch your invisible punching bag.

6-Roll your head around in every direction.

You get the idea. Now work down your body. Move every joint in every direction it can move. Continue on with the rest of your joints all the way down to your toes. Don’t leave any joint out! For another good way to move the joints in your feet see my blog post


It doesn’t take much time at all and does your body a great deal of good.

Good health to you!
