Rocking Chair. Wednesday , May 02nd , 2018 - 01:48:29 AM
Quality Time: It is truly an awesome thing when I see a young child rocking with their parents or grandparents. I remember spending time rocking with my grandma in a little old wooden chair chair that she had at her house just for me. She would be rocking there working on her latest crochet project while I would talk to her about all of the latest things a young boy could think of. These chairs definitely have a family aspect to them that allows a child to grow close to their loved ones.
Thinking of the rocking chair, the first thing that conjures up in our mind is, either the image of an elderly person sitting on it and gently swinging or a pregnant mommy knitting woolens for her expecting baby. But this is not done because it is stereotypical, in fact, rocking gently on the rocking chair can give you boundless health benefits. If you have a sedentary lifestyle, then you do not have to worry much, instead try to ensure that you sit on a this chair more often. This is because swaying on the rocking chair can tone your leg muscles and releases endorphin, that decreases stress and increases mental stability.
The rocking chair reminds many people of a calmer time, and old-fashioned relaxation. Rockers have been around for a long time - no one knows how long, but they were mentioned in the Oxford English Dictionary in 1787. It's probably that these classic pieces of furniture originated in America or in England as a kind of garden chair. The first models were undoubtedly homemade, since rocking chairs didn't start being built by furniture companies until around 1800. Rockers are known from at least the 1740s in Sweden and England. Swedish rocking chairs had six legs with an extra long rocker and were usually black and gold. English versions looked like a standard chair, with rockers added onto the bottom. Now available in all styles, rocking chairs are still available all over the world, in a variety of materials. You can get rocking chairs in wicker, metal, plastic, and of course, the familiar wooden rocking chair.
