Sit up straight


Did your Mom tell you that? Mine did. Do I do it? Nah, not always.

Connie Midey wrote about posture in the AZ Republic, Feb 17, 2012. Poor posture is the number one cause of back and neck pain.

People with good posture are also seen as more strong and vital.

THAT made me sit up and take notice!

If you tend to slouch head-forward, lift the front of your rib cage a few inches.

Rounded shoulders? Pull your shoulder blades back toward your spine.

If you have a sloppy stance, make sure your legs are not locked. Inhale. As you exhale, pull your belly toward your spine.

OK—at least I am sitting straighter.

I bet you moved a little, too.
