I panicked, I don't want to be bent over when I'm older, so I promised myself I would do his exercises everyday and I did, for about three days and then I forgot.
If you're reading this you're more than likely to sit at a computer typing for hours on end,or read books curled up on a comfy chair, if that's you then you probably have bad posture too.
|We do too much of this|
1. Have two feet firmly on the floor, (my ankles are crossed)
2.Sit with shoulders back and don't hunch forward (straightens shoulders)
3 Sit fully back on your chair with a cushion in the middle of your back.(Yes! I have that!)
4.Take a 1-2min break every 20-30 mins and stretch. After one hour take a ten minute break and walk around (I'd never complete this challenge).
|Take a break and do this|
Any woman who has worn a corset or a body shaper will know it gives you great posture, mostly because you can't bend down and have to walk straight. That's probably the reason women in period dramas on TV look so regal.
When a woman puts on a heel, she has a different posture, a different attitude. She really stands up and has a consciousness of her body.
So ladies and gents, if you don't want back pain and a stoop then think, good posture,head up and walk tall.
I want to get old gracefully. I want to have good posture, I want to be healthy and be an example to my children.
I have discovered that my arm pain (impingement) is caused by carrying toddlers, although I agree that my posture needs improving.
Are you aware of your posture? Does it need improving?
