Rocking Chair / April 27, 2018 / Jasmine Oliver
Those clever design people at Fisher Price certainly understand the true value of rocking and how comforting and relaxing the motion actually is. That's why they have such a great range of baby rockers, if you don't have the time to sit and rock the baby yourself, then let the baby rock in his very own baby rocker, he'll be peacefully snoring in no time at all. They have a great selection of baby rockers which are even suitable for newborns and then can be adapted as the baby grows and gets that little bit older and more ready to play, with various toys which can be attached and all help to keep infants happy while they rock.
The joys of a rocking chair are many, quiet joys though they are. As technology continues its constant onward march, some people still remember the peace and simplicity that comes with making a rocker a part of every day life. Some might think rockers are only for old people, but in truth, anyone who sits can gain some benefit from using this type of chair. That's because rockers are all about motion- not the crazy motion of long distance travel or freaky dancing, but something much more subtle, a gentle back and forth that may seem unremarkable to the naked eye. In truth, however, these motions can have a rather profound physical and psychological impact on us as humans. Sitting for long periods in one spot is likely to make our bodies stiff and our minds a little crazy, but sitting in a rocker keeps us engaged and our bodies are constantly moving, constantly adjusting. The fact that these movements and adjustments are slow does not really matter, because we repeat the movement so much. But sit in a rocker for an hour and sit in a normal chair for an hour- I bet you will come off the rocker feeling refreshed and rested, while your body might revolt before the hour is up if you're sitting in the regular chair.
