Simple and to the point. Rollin with hands on the hips makes you aware and amplifies the tension you may have between the ribs or the hips and shoulders rectangular shape.  Start from standing and roll but go for the least amount of effort to get the job done. If you are afraid than use it. If you have fear from hitting yourself with the good ground simply sit down and roll from there. A nice way to do this is to sit down and roll backwards. That way the lazy person who slips doesn’t break his fall with his hand (notice the words) and can get up again without even trying. Try sitting down and getting up with hands on your hips without bending or tilting your torso. As you are seated and trying to get over gravity people often try to shorten the move and stress themselves by falling with the head forward and using the thrust to get up. Instead use the relaxation of the hips and legs to pivot up. The point of support is important and you need something to push against. If that something is to the side than it is hard to get up. If you have two things pushing towards each other than you have a wedge that doubles your work ability and if it is beneath you than you simply move the right way. If what I wrote makes little sense than simply sit down on your behind and start to play with your legs. Bring the shins beneath you and than you can lift one knee and push yourself up. You can spiral up if you sit on your behind and sorta push with both feet to the same side as the legs are bent and flat on the ground. If you keep the torso light and up you will simply get up. More on that later. I plan to post another video on utube as soon as I can make one.
