Health Watch: Posture Matters!

I sit in front of a computer nearly 16 hours a day…. some days. So I couldn't ignore the slight neck pain that occurs from time to time. I was wondering whether the birth of the pain had anything to do with my new office chair.

This led me to read a bit on sitting posture and I ended up finding some helpful and informative articles on posture. I hope you find them useful as well.

"What if someone told you there was a way to add height to your frame, trim some flab from around your middle, and look more vibrant -- instantly, and without spending a cent? You'd sign up, right away, of course."
Tempting introduction huh? That was an excerpt from Your guide to better posture at WebMD

Posture at work by Spine-Health features an article on the correct Posture for standing, sitting in office chairs or driving.

If you were just focusing on sitting in front of a computer, then How To Keep Good Posture When In Front Of A Computer is a definite read.

I went to yoga last night (I'm a beginner) and she worked on our posture with the yoga strap. It was great! Really opens your chest up (for those of us with terrible posture, myself included, we spend most of our days with our chests "caved in"). She also stressed the importance of backbends for posture and showed us how to do one laying on our stomachs.

I did a headstand last night for the first time in about 10 years, and it felt great! She said that was important to balance your organs that are constantly being pulled down by gravity.

I think I'm going to continue with yoga, as I'm not getting any younger and I definitely don't want to be the little old "bent over" lady walking down the street!

Take good care,
