Rosa Anthony. Rocking Chair. April 22nd , 2018.
The origin of the rocking chair is unknown but the first ones we do know of originated in England in the early 1700's and were made near Windsor Castle in Berkshire (which lies about a 20 minute drive away from Heathrow Airport) hence the name 'Windsor Rocker'. In all probability it came about through watching the therapeutic effect of gently rocking a baby in it's cradle, so why not do the same for adults? England was not the only country to have the rocker at that time, Sweden had another form around 1740 called the 'Gungstol', which just means rocking chair. These originally had 6 legs and were traditionally painted black with gold outlines. A four legged version became popular in the 1800's
The third and probably the easiest of the three, is to know what your child's interests are. Today, there are multiple options for you to consider, not like in the olden days where the only choice was the traditional brown rocking chair. You can choose a traditional style rocker, in almost any color on the color palette and even have it personalized with the child's name. Or you can pick from any theme you can imagine ranging from animals, prince and princesses, careers such as a firefighter or policemen, hobbies like baseball, trains, racecars, ballet, or being an artist or musician. And for those that need it, there's even a \"Time-Out\" chair which has a working timer that you can set for up to 15 minutes. You might even want to consider letting your little one pick out their own chair. Sometimes they surprise us and choose something completely opposite from what we would have picked out for them. Remember, the more they like it, the more they will use it.
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.
