I have to be honest too, part of my noticing this was out of pure vanity. I get to work early every day so I can walk a little but before hitting the office. The other day I was walking past the hospital and scoped out my reflection in the window…it was shocking how I was standing/walking. I straightened myself up and instantly saw how much better I looked. Now, I had to do all this while still moving so as not to look like a complete freakazoid…so what did I do when I got home? Stood in front of my mirror in profile checking myself out some more. (the kids were laughing their butts off)
Did you know that your little tummy “pouch” could be a result of poor posture? I didn’t.
I also found out some new things about what kind of negative effects poor posture can have on other areas of your life. Did you know it can deepen depression, cause career problems, even increase risk of death! Check out this article I found on 7 Weird Ways Your Posture Messes With You. Talk about scary!!
So this week I will be trying a few of these pins out:
3 Simple Stretches for better posture
The Perfect Posture Workout
Physical Therapy Exercises to Prevent Poor Posture and Neck Pain while Working on the Computer
I know that the best thing I can probably do for this is to just be more aware, but strengthening the right muscles has got to help too, right!
How do you stand tall?
