Sitting in a rocking chair is relaxing, rejuvenating and calming all at once, and there is science to prove it. There are few health conditions that can benefit from some rocking chair therapy.
1. Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease

thirty years ago” (Meyer 1390). After marriage she was a quiet woman who didn’t have any close friends and never had any children. Her kitchen was described as being untidy and gloomy. The men often make insulting comments about her lack of housekeeping skills. Hale, who had come to talk to John, and was the one who found his lifeless body upstairs said when he arrived at the house Mrs. Wright was just sitting in her rocking chair rocking and pleating her apron. When he asked to see John she…
exemplifies the oppressed relationship between John and Minnie and the male thoughtlessness towards the majority of women in society. All of the women throughout the story are referred to by the husband’s last name such as Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters. The role that society has given to women is well defined by the husband. Mrs. Peters is married to the sheriff and is seen in those terms. Mr. Peter states, “for that matter a sheriff’s wife is married to the law” (Norton 681).

wouldn’t laugh if broke the unspoken rules. Trust that she wouldn’t mock me if I made a fool of myself. And now, almost a month later, I know that I was right to trust her. I know that I was right to walk over and kneel down in the dirt next to her and wait until she looked up from her lima beans and smile at her.
Someday’s I don’t walk home until it's dark and the streetlights have began to flicker, and someday’s I go home before the sun has risen overhead and my shadow pools at my bare feet.…

of the dandelions float away. As I try to watch the pieces be swept away, I notice the characteristics of the outside of the small cabin. The cabin is old, but still mesmerizing. I imagine my Uncle David working from dawn until dusk. The continuous banging of his hammer and the sound of a metal saw cutting into the red cedar logs. I run my fingers over the logs and feel the rough dents that have been caused by destructive storms or raging animals. The dents give it character. As I gently walk up…

Handmade Hammock Chillout Chair
I’ve had hanging chairs in the past but I’ve never known true comfortable until the day my very own Hammock Chillout Chair arrived. From the first time I sunk into it I knew that I had made the right choice. I love the fact that it’s made from soft, eco-friendly material, so much better than the cheap scratchy coverings I'm used to with furniture like this. My favorite part of the chair has to be the wooden crossbar; each one is hand sources from the…

I sat down next to him in the brown recliner adjacent to his favorite rocking chair and took a few sips of my drink. “Better hurry up, the bank opens at 7:30.” he said.
I began my morning routine just as I did at home; showering, shaving and finally brushing my teeth. At seven o’clock my father walked into the kitchen and began…
there is an old stone path that leads to an even older set of stairs that descend to the lake.
The entire inside of the house is covered in a dark green carpet on which I spent countless hours lying on and petting my grandpa’s dog. The kitchen is the only room without the carpet. The kitchen is covered in linoleum and has a retro fridge that matches it nicely. An old burner top stove sat to the left of the fridge, and always had some kind of cookie baking in it. There is an island in the…
