When it comes to Posture….. think like an Archer.
Your head should feel like it is being pulled up
and your shoulders being pressed down.
Good Posture is a subtle Power Pose.
In a seated position, you should sit tall. The knees should be slightly higher than the hips. When walking, keep the head tall, and avoid a forward head carriage. By regularly performing exercises to stretch muscles that are tight, and strengthening those that are weak, will improve your posture. Take time every hour to open up the chest with a nice stretch. Take breaks often. Get up and walk to improve your circulation
Pick one, two or three of the following for your aerobic fitness.
*Walk *Cycle *Swim *Run *Dance *Fitness Class
Do aerobic training at least 3x per week.
Do resistance training at least 2x per week – medium and hard in difficulty.
You deal with obvious issues, check alignment and perform other diagnostics to determine pending problems. Then deal with correcting alignment and making other repairs. Finally, advice is given to maintain good structure and function.
Modern world stressors- lack of exercise and general movement, prolonged sitting and standing positions, hard surfaces and poor postures -are harmful to your body. Imbalances are created and an internal tug-of-war resonates throughout your musculoskeletal system.
You are either, in pain or are more vulnerable to injury or at risk of re-aggravating an old injury.
Overall, it is easier to prevent disease than it is to treat it.
