Those that know me know I am a believer in good posture.
If you were to slouch your spine all day, every day then you will become slouched. Your tissues will begin to shorten in the front of your body and lengthen in the back. It’s likely you will feel tension along your spine and even in those front parts of your body. Standing straight will be difficult and breathing becomes more of a challenge. Even your organs won’t have room to move (yes, your liver and intestines like to move too). You might even start to have some pain.
Now what could you have done to prevent this from happening?
The answer is quite simple and you probably won’t find it in Rocket Scientist Digest.
You’re right…don’t slouch all day!!!
The body loves to move and does not want to stay in the same place for a long period of time.
That’s why the best posture is the next posture!!
Avoid tension, decreased energy, and potential pain by moving more frequently.
If you work at a desk, get up and take a quick walk around the cubicle, while at your desk sit up tall and raise your arms overhead and take a big stretch while breathing deeply.
Move your body in whatever way feels good…just move it…and move it…and move it in as many fun, feel good ways as you can.
