The Ten Laws of Sitting

How to stop when the hills get too steep or the knees are starting to creak.

1. Take the weight off both legs (ie: don’t cross them) 
2. Give in to fatigue 
3. Remember to breathe 
4. Listen to nature
5. Distinguish rest from slouch 
6. Punctuate sitting with walking and vice versa 
7. Admit getting lost (stop, sit and all will become clear) 
8. Pack light but eat well 
9. Salute lone magpies 
10. Obey instinct – take a breather
