Stress busters;Interview;Actor;Martin Jarvis;Mind amp; Body
I enjoy keeping several balls in the air - I've just edited A Night to Remember, a 10-part serialisation for BBCworld service radio about The Titanic, I'm currently recording Michael Frayn's novel, Sweet Dreams, for Radio 4, and I'm also making a TV film with Lynda la Plante called Supply and Demand - but it's stressful. When things get tense I do what I call the Jarvis Crouch. I crouch with my knees bent and arms limp, feet about a foot apart, leaning forward in a slightly foetal position to stretch the spine. I rock gently, then walk round for 15 seconds. It's a tip I got from an excellent osteopath called Barry Savery. It's a great stress-buster, but not after eating a large pizza!
